Symposium: The Changing Role and Nature of In-House Counsel

In Memory of Larry E. Ribstein

The Wisconsin Law Review dedicates this Symposium issue to Larry E. Ribstein. Before he passed away in December 2011, he was the Mildred Van Voorhis Jones Chair, Associate Dean for Research, and Co-Director of the Illinois Business Law and Policy Program at the University of Illinois College of Law. He was a prolific, highly regarded scholar known for his innovative writing on many legal topics, one of many examples of which appeared previously in this Review. We are honored to have had the opportunity to work with him and proud to publish one of his final articles, Delawyering the Corporation, in this issue.
