Tribute to Yale Kamisar

When the editors of this issue told me of Professor Yale Kamisar’s decision to retire from full-time teaching after a near half century of law faculty service, two thoughts came immediately to mind. First, I thought of the large loss to Michigan students unable to attend his classes and to faculty colleagues at Ann Arbor unable routinely to engage his bright mind. Second, I thought it altogether right for the Michigan Law Review to publish an issue honoring one of the Law School’s most prized professors. When invited to write a tribute, I could not resist saying yes.
