Sad News

Just received an email from USD that professor Fred Zacharias passed away last night. He was widely recognized for his scholarship in the area of Professional Responsibility & Legal Ethics. His presence will truly be missed. Our condolences to his family.

Info from his USD faculty listing:

Professor Zacharias clerked on the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia and practiced public interest law in Washington, D.C. He taught at Cornell University and George Washington University before coming to USD in 1990. He teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional law, professional responsibility and criminal procedure. Among his many articles are “The Uniqueness of Federal Prosecutors,” Georgetown Law Journal; “Waiving Conflicts of Interest,” Yale Law Journal; “Structuring the Ethics of Prosecutorial Trial Practice,” Vanderbilt Law Review; “Flowcharting the First Amendment,” Cornell Law Review; “Federalizing Legal Ethics,” Texas Law Review; and “The Politics of Torts,” Yale Law Journal. He is a member of the American Law Institute.
