Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,


I have to announce a very sad news.


Professor Ada Pellegrini Grinover has died last week.


We lose a friend; the association loses a faithful and active member, honorary vice president, who organized the memorable 2007 world congress in Salvador de Bahia; the Brazilian doctrine loses one of its major figures and the worldwide procedural science a prominent authority.


I invite you to read herewith the sensitive tribute written by our colleague Giovani Priori Posada: icon Ada Pellegrini Grinover - Giovanni Priori


The association expresses its deepest condolences to its relatives and friends.


Loïc Cadiet

IAPL President
