When I learned that the Editors of the Columbia Law Review were planning to dedicate this issue to Paul Hays, I took an extraordinary step. I volunteered. It seemed to me that the occasion should not pass without a formal expression of thanks from the Dean of the School of Law and an informal acknowledgment of the personal debt I owe to Paul Hays.
The formal thanks, richly deserved, can be simply stated. A valued colleague, a brilliant scholar, an inspiring teacher – Paul Hays is all of these and the School he served for more than three decades is the stronger for his association with it.
