In Memoriam: Norman Dorsen (1930-2017) and John A. Robertson (1943-2017)

My former Texas colleague John Dzienkowski kindly called to my attention the recent passing of two well-known figures in the legal academy.

Professor Dorsen was a leading civil liberties advocate and longtime member of the NYU Law faculty.  The New York Times obituary is here.

I was particularly saddened to learn of the death of my former Texas colleague John A. Robertson, a leading figure in law and bioethics.  The Austin-American Statesman obituary is here, and there is a lovely remembrance from Glenn Cohen (Harvard) here.
