Memorial Service and Reception in honor of University Professor John H. Jackson.
On Friday, 29 April 2016, colleagues and friends joined the Georgetown Law community to celebrate the life and legacy of University Professor John H. Jackson, who died on November 7, 2015, at the age of 83.
The founding Faculty Director of the Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL), Jackson was a towering figure – a truly legendary member of the faculty and the global trade community. In particular, he is known for his work on the Trade Act of 1974 and for creating the intellectual framework of the World Trade Organization’s dispute settlement procedures. His book World Trade and the Law of GATT is considered the definitive work on the subject for trade law and policy specialists — and is but one of many major contributions he made to international economic law. John was a friend, mentor and inspiration to so many – not only on campus, but around the world.
