The International Center for Law and Religion Studies is grateful once again this year for the indispensable help of our friends who have volunteered to assist in hosting delegates to the annual International Law and Religion Symposium. The Hosting Committee is chaired by Linda Nearon and Lynn Anderson, assisted by members of the Center’s International Advisory Council. A number of the hosts have served with us for some time, and we express our continual gratitude to these capable and generous people for making the Symposium such a memorable experience for all who attend, year after year. We enthusiastically welcome those who have more recently joined us as hosts, and we look forward to a long and fruitful association. In addition, we are particularly grateful this year for the contributions of volunteer Research Advisors, under the direction of Gayla Sorenson, whose contributions included excellent reports of Symposium Sessions.
