The OUCLJ says farewell to one of the most influential members of its Editorial Board over the last years. Andelka Philipps, who recently finished her DPhil thesis on direct-to-consumer genetic testing (DTC), started working for the Journal as an Associate Editor in 2012 and became member of the Editorial Board in 2013; she was General Editor of the OUCLJ between 2013 and 2015. Under her stewardship, the journal did not only reconsolidate its position within the Law Faculty's postgraduate community, it also took vital steps to maintain its role as one of the leading law journals for the Commonwealth legal systems in a world of digital scholarship. The Editorial Board would like to express its sincered gratitude for Andelka's outstanding work and her unrivaled commitment to the Journal's success.
Andelka's place on the Editorial Board will be taken up by Leo Boonzaier, who completed the BCL and clerked for the Constitutional Court of South Africa before starting to work on his DPhil thesis on the philosophical foundations of tort law in 2015.
