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

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.

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.

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 ...
