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.
