Washington Law Review


Abram Chayes


Ted Stein was my student, colleague, collaborator, and friend. He was among the most impressive of the younger American scholars in the field of international law. I remember him as a student, hardly a decade ago. Like many entering law students, then and now, with undergraduate backgrounds in international relations, he professed an interest in international law. Usually that means an interest in being Secretary of State, and it fades quickly as the process of professional socialization takes over. Not for Ted. His interest was a commitment that led him first to an editorial position on the Harvard International Law Journal, then to a term in the State Department's Office of Legal Adviser, and ultimately to what should have been a long life's work of teaching and scholarship in international law.
