Emory Law Journal


My chief memory of David Bederman is his tremendous intellect and interest in solving challenging international legal issues. He often argued for the just use of beaches and an island, Antarctica. His first lecture to the Emory faculty dealt with the critical importance of a very small lighthouse in southwestern Europe. David, I am sure, would have enjoyed discussing the question of the United States' recognition of Cuba. Indeed, his home in Florida faces Cuba. I therefore dedicate this Tribute to my irreplaceable colleague, David Bederman.
