Tribute To Eric Stein, Bruno Simma Oct 2011

Tribute To Eric Stein, Bruno Simma

Michigan Journal of International Law

My first encounter with Eric dates back forty years. In 1971 he taught a course at the Hague Academy of International Law. At that time, I was an assistant lecturer at the University of Innsbruck, had just submitted my Habilitationsschrift to the Law Faculty there, and, while waiting for my venia legendi to come forward, I wanted to spend a few weeks at what was-and probably still is-the most exciting place for young international law scholars to get together with hundreds of like-minded individuals and some of the most inspiring teachers worldwide. Eric certainly lived up to my expectation of ...


Memory Of Eric Stein, Carl A. Valenstein Oct 2011

Memory Of Eric Stein, Carl A. Valenstein

Michigan Journal of International Law

My memory of Eric Stein is of a teacher and mentor rather than a colleague. I will leave to others more qualified than I to describe his major contributions to the academic literature and teaching of European Community and public international law. When I entered Michigan Law School as a student in 1980, Eric had "technically" retired or at least transitioned to emeritus status. I say he had "technically" retired because his commitment to the law school community as a writer, teacher, and mentor to students never appeared to diminish. He still taught a number of classes and seminars, wrote ...


Eric Stein, 1913-2011, Joseph Vining Oct 2011

Eric Stein, 1913-2011, Joseph Vining

Michigan Journal of International Law

Eric kept all of us on the faculty from feeling our age. He was interested in us all to the very end. I am seventy-three, which I find hard to believe every time I think of it, but I always knew during our forty-two years of friendship and working together that I could have been Eric's son. As time has passed, a larger and larger number of the faculty could have been my sons and daughters and Eric's grandsons and granddaughters--certainly you can't be a grandchild without feeling young somewhere inside yourself.


Scholarship As Contribution To World Peace, John H. Jackson Oct 2011

Scholarship As Contribution To World Peace, John H. Jackson

Michigan Journal of International Law

Eric Stein was clearly one of the important legal scholars of our time. I enjoyed him as a colleague for more than three decades, and remained a friend afterward although we were separated by distance. Eric was truly dedicated to his scholarship, which was broadly concerned with international law and how it operates, but perhaps most significant to his legacy was his deep interest and personal involvement in the extraordinary beginnings and ongoing evolution of the European Union.

True Michiganian, Moritoshi Fukuda Jan 1989

True Michiganian, Moritoshi Fukuda

Michigan Journal of International Law

At the beginning of January, 1988, the saddest news came from Betty Bishop in her letter informing me that her father, William W. Bishop, Jr., had passed away suddenly but peacefully at his home in Ann Arbor on December 29, 1987. His last act on this earth was feeding the birds and squirrels in his snowy garden. Then he sat down on the porch and apparently was struck down by a heart attack. He was 81 years old.


In Memoriam, John H. Jackson Jan 1989

In Memoriam, John H. Jackson

Michigan Journal of International Law

The University of Michigan law faculty has been saddened twice within six months by the deaths of colleagues. These events can only serve to remind us that not only are the lives of individuals transitory, but institutions also can be deeply affected by the mortality of their members.


A Tribute From A Political Scientist, Harold K. Jacobson Jan 1989

A Tribute From A Political Scientist, Harold K. Jacobson

Michigan Journal of International Law

Political scientists who specialize in international relations knew Bill Bishop as the Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of International Law, the author of the classic text in international law, and the teacher of our former students. A fortunate few of us, at Princeton before he joined the faculty of the Michigan Law School and at Michigan after his formal retirement, knew him as a superb teacher of international law to undergraduate students in political science courses. However we knew him, we had and have immense respect, admiration, and affection for him.


A Tribute From A Private Practitioner, Rotraud M. Perry Jan 1989

A Tribute From A Private Practitioner, Rotraud M. Perry

Michigan Journal of International Law

William W. Bishop, Jr. was a great scholar in the field of international law, with a unique mind, an intensive understanding in his field, an industrious application to all problems which came before him, and an abiding affection for his students - which affection was reciprocated by a countless number. Year after year his voluntary international law classes had to be split in two because so many enrolled.

William Warner Bishop, Jr.:Remembering A Gentle Giant, George P. Smith Ii

Michigan Journal of International Law

The name William Warner Bishop, Jr. came into my vocabulary when I was a student at the Indiana University Law School in Bloomington in the early 1960s. There I enrolled in a course styled simply, "International Law," in which we used the course book entitled INTERNATIONAL LAW: CASES AND MATERIALS by Professor Bishop. The man Bill Bishop entered my life the Summer of 1965 in The Hague, Netherlands, at the Academie du Droit International where I was enrolled as a student. Among the several other courses which I had elected, the "General Course of Public International Law" given by William ...


Memorial To William W. Bishop, Jr., Richard B. Lillich Jan 1989

Memorial To William W. Bishop, Jr., Richard B. Lillich

Michigan Journal of International Law

Time, that everrolling stream, has taken Bill Bishop away, but his legacy will remain with us - as individuals and as a Society - forever. Many of his contemporaries and colleagues also have recorded their memories of the man. This memorialist, his collaborator on various joint ventures within and without the Society over the past decade and a half, saw Bill not so closely nor over so long a period, but from a different perspective perhaps no less worth recording.

William W. Bishop, Jr.: A Great Life In The Law, Michael H. Cardozo

Michigan Journal of International Law

The career of William W. Bishop, Jr., provides a special opportunity to observe one of the ways, as Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. put it, of "living greatly in the law." His accomplishments must have brought great satisfaction to him, for he was recognized worldwide as one of the leading authorities and teachers in the field of public international law. That alone bespeaks a good life in the law.

Recollections Of Professor Bishop As A Teacher Of Teachers Of Transnational Law, Covey T. Oliver Jan 1989

Recollections Of Professor Bishop As A Teacher Of Teachers Of Transnational Law, Covey T. Oliver

Michigan Journal of International Law

It will be interesting to me to see, should this modest tribute survive editing, whether others writing in this Symposium have also chosen to single out Bill Bishop's influence on a post-World War II generation of teachers of international public law, conflict of laws, comparative public law, and admiralty: men and women who have in considerable part been led, aided, or influenced by him into one or several aspects of the global normative science, named "transnational law" by one of his own great teachers (and mine), Philip C. Jessup.' If others have also sounded this theme, reiteration of it ...


William W. Bishop, Jr.:My Saya, Myint Zan Jan 1989

William W. Bishop, Jr.:My Saya, Myint Zan

Michigan Journal of International Law

Bill Bishop to me was a Saya in the fullest sense of this Burmese word. Saya means a teacher who is at the same time a scholar, role model, guide, comforter, and friend. As a scholar and teacher he has imparted not only legal knowledge, but also intellectual honesty: a capacity to see and a sympathy to understand other points of view. What better role model can one give than to be a noted international legal scholar, a caring, conscientious, and affectionate person that he was? But it is in his role as a guide, comforter, and friend that he ...


William W. Bishop, Jr.: A Law Teacher Whose Inward Happiness Was Reflected In His Relations With Students And Colleagues, James N. Hyde Jan 1989

William W. Bishop, Jr.: A Law Teacher Whose Inward Happiness Was Reflected In His Relations With Students And Colleagues, James N. Hyde

Michigan Journal of International Law

Bill Bishop's students and colleagues at Michigan showed their love and respect for him, which I, as a contemporary in age, shared. Like my father, Charles Cheney Hyde, I had associations with Bishop while lecturing there. Through these associations I developed my own interest in the Law School and its students. His colleague, Eric Stein, has emphasized the impact of his casebook and teaching. He refers to Bishop's "historical perspective and traditional systematic presentation, which formed the background for consideration of perpetual change," which Bishop saw and documented. In the Foreword to the Proceedings of a 1955 Summer ...
