Louis Henkin RIP
Terribly sad news today on the death of Louis Henkin. Here’s the message from Columbia Law School Dean David Schizer:
I’m very sorry to report that our colleague, Lou Henkin, passed away this morning. Lou has been a towering presence here at the Law School since he joined the faculty in 1962. His intellectual and personal contributions were immense. An influential pioneer in the field of human rights law, Lou was an inspiration, an intellectual giant, a generous mentor and teacher, and a cherished friend. Our hearts go out to Alice and their sons, Joshua, David, and Daniel, and their grandchildren for this great loss.
The funeral for Lou will be at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 West 76th Street (at Amsterdam), on Sunday October 17 at 11:45am.
