Edward F. Sherman
, one of the towering figures of military justice reform in the last half of the 20th century, passed away on June 7. Ed taught at several law schools and was a popular and successful Dean of Tulane Law School for five years. He wrote an early military justice casebook with Donald N. Zillman
and Albert J. Blaustein
, Cases and Materials on Military Law: The Scope of Military Authority in a Democracy
(Matthew Bender 1978). Among his military justice writings -- he wrote with distinction in other legal fields as well -- are the pivotal Maine Law Review
article, The Civilianization of Military Law
(1970), and the prophetic Military Justice Without Military Control
, 82 Yale L.J. 1398 (1973). In addition to his scholarly work, Ed was a gifted practitioner, a gentle mentor, and a role model to many. He was a founding board member of the Lawyers Military Defense Committee. Additional details can be found on his Tulane faculty page
Sincere condolences to Alice Sherman and family.
