It is with profound sadness and regret that we note the passing of Ted Eisenberg, a founding director of SELS and a colleague, co-author, mentor, and friend. The entire empirical legal scholarship community lost a gracious colleague, an intellectual giant, and a true pioneer in empirical legal studies. He was a man of uncommon decency, whose fertile mind, generous spirit, and unadorned manner sat easily with the great force of his scholarly vision and scope. He is deeply missed.
Theodore Eisenberg 1947-2014
