It is difficult for me to accept the reality that Doug Kahn is about to retire after a triumphant fifty-two year tenure as a professor at the University of Michigan Law School. For much of the nearly forty-seven years of my association with the Law School, first as a student and then as an alumnus, Doug has practically symbolized the Law School for me, as he went from being a revered teacher, to a valued mentor, to a dear friend, to a colleague and co-author, and, dare I say, to virtually a member of the family. But I am only one of many Michigan students whose lives and careers were touched and positively influenced by this extraordinary scholar, superb teacher, wise mentor, and very kind-hearted man. I am and always will be grateful beyond measure that our paths crossed, and am especially grateful that it happened early enough in Doug’s teaching career to give us the opportunity to also become colleagues, co-authors, and good friends in the years since I graduated.
