Lynn Stout

Shocked and terribly sad to learn that Lynn Stout has died.  Stephen Bainbridge shares emails from the UCLA and Cornell deans here.  Lynn was an incredibly generous colleague who provided thoughtful commentary and much appreciated support to me and many other prawfs.  Her passing is a real blow to the corporate law community.  Fortunately, we still have her work, and I am grateful to hear that two new books are to be published.  If you would like a quick sense of one of her more broadly applicable works, you could review the 2012 Prawfs Book Club for "Cultivating Conscience."

That's sad news. I never met her, but very much enjoyed teaching her work in my Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics classes when I taught at Wharton. The work always lead to good discussion and thoughtful comments and writing from the students on exams and papers.
