At the beginning of the editorial process for the present Volume 6 of Lawyr.it we never thought that it would represent one of our biggest successes as a team, even before publishing it. The world as we knew it in January does not exist anymore, and albeit it sounds negative, changing times are the only occasion when the character, devotion, and unity of a team can truly shine. As Managing Editors, we are beyond proud of every member that helped bring you, our dear readers, this issue, for the brilliant work they have laid down despite the circumstances. Every time one of us was handed a curveball, another stepped up for the better of this small, but all the more important community. Every article, the interview, the question of the issue, and the debate were a concerted effort of students whose lives were turned upside down and inside out. But we are here now, to show you the fruits of our labour and to usher in an exciting new time for our publication.

The changes that affected us in our daily lives seeped into every word we edited, every article we handed over to another pair of keen eyes, and the issue in itself. Thus, we decided that change needs to happen in our ways too. A rebranding of Lawyr.it will commence in the following months of 2020. As such, we will be meeting you for the next issue in 2021, with a new design, structure, and outlook, but with the same enthusiasm and professionalism that you are accustomed to.

We want to thank our readers infinitely for their presence in our journey, since without you we never would have come this far. We would also like to extend our gratitude to every member, past and present, for all the hours they have sacrificed to make every issue the best it could be. We hope to continue this tradition of quality content with the present Issue 6 and wish you an amazing time reading our newest articles. See you all soon!
