The presence of Prince Charles underlined not only the successful and highly valued past, but also the promising future of Anglo-American relations in the field of law. It is these relations which were and still are at the heart of the Institute‚Äôs efforts.  

 

On 22 October 1999 a plaque was unveiled by the Rt. Hon. the Lord Irvine of Lairg, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain to mark the Institute's successful promotion of close Anglo-Dutch legal relations since it was officially
opened by H.R.H. the Prince of Wales on 27 October 1988.
