Letter from Jayan Nayar
Hope this finds you well.
I read with excitement your paper, particularly your call for a rethinking of law. As you know, this is what Ive been trying to do and build with the Peoples' Law Programme in Rome. It is a relief and a source of support that you are advocating the same.
I attach a paper which describes the thinking and the aspirations of the Programme. I look forward to feedback and suggestions and hope very much that this 'virtual community' that your reflections have generated can provide a platform for us to carry on this conversation and to collectively act.
