Life after LAPA:
I finally finished my article about essentially ambiguous concepts, an idea which had been on my mind for several years. My second main research project was a book on the dynamics of law and morality. Not only did I conceive the basic structure and studied many relevant materials, but I also left Princeton with a first draft for most of the chapters. And thirdly, I wrote a first article (in Dutch) for my project on the legal professions and ideals, arguing that the twofold move towards instrumental and responsive law has led to a loss of autonomy for the professions and has contributed to less respect for the rule of law.
