In Memoriam: William C. Powers, Jr. (1946-2019)

I was shocked to learn of the passing of Bill Powers, former Dean of the Law School and President of the University of Texas at Austin, as well as a leading authority on tort law.   I was fortunate to be his colleague and to serve on the faculty at Texas when he was Dean; he was a brilliant and shrewd leader, with excellent academic values and judgment, and great people and political skills.  He improved both the Law School and the University.  He was also a popular and beloved teacher.   The UT Austin memorial notice is here.
