It is with great sadness that the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies announces the death of Reza Banakar after a long illness. Reza was a Research Fellow at the Centre from 1997 to 2002, holding the Paul Dodyk Research Fellowship. While at Oxford he also served as a Research Fellow at Harris Manchester College.
Reza was an active member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the Research Committee on the Sociology of Law. He will be remembered as an excellent scholar, as a devoted educator and as a warm-hearted friend who was always there for you. His manner was one of modesty and kindness.
