Larry E. Ribstein Memorial Fund & the Larry E. Ribstein Academic Fellowship Program
Posted by Christine Hurt

We have today concluded our Ribstein Memorial Symposium here at the University of Illinois College of Law.  I can't think of a better way to honor the scholarly and personal legacy of Larry Ribstein, other than a week-long conference.  I am grateful to our organizers, presenters and participants. 

At the conference, Dean Bruce Smith announced that in conjunction with the Larry E. Ribstein Memorial Fund, our VAP program, before known as the Illinois Academic Fellowship Program, will from yesterday forward be known as the Larry E. Ribstein Academic Fellowship Program.  Again, having this successful program bear his name is a perfect tribute.  Larry worked very hard with each of our VAPs and on behalf of them.  The fund "will support initiatives designed to advance the intellectual life of the College of Law, including a named faculty position, research support, and workshops for junior faculty members, as well as innovations designed to more effectively bridge the worlds of legal theory and legal practice, particularly in the area of business law."  If you would like to learn more about the fund, and perhaps contribute to it as a way to honor Larry, you can find more information here.
