Barry E. Carter 1942-2014
We here at Opinio Juris were saddened to hear of the passing last week of Georgetown Professor Barry Carter. Our condolences go out to his friends and family. Georgetown Dean William Treanor has a tribute to Barry here.
For my part, I’ve used Barry’s textbook (which he originally authored with Philip Trimble, then Curt Bradley, and now Allen Weiner) ever since I started teaching international law. Despite a heavy U.S. emphasis, it offers a compelling and highly accessible introduction to international law. I know it’s part of the reason so many students find themselves drawn to a career in international law. In recent months, I’d enjoyed getting to know Barry more as we both served as Advisers to the 4th Restatement on Foreign Relations Law project. I enjoyed his many comments to that effort and I know his contributions there will be sorely missed.
Readers can leave their own memories and tributes to Barry on a page at Georgetown Law’s website here.
