Prof. Ed Sherman has passed away

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. BlausteinCases 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.
