Usha Rodrigues on Larry Ribstein

Usha Rodrigues has a characteristically delightful and poignant remembrance of Larry up over at Conglomerate: Finally, the section is done.  And it’s stronger and richer than it was just 24 hours ago.  I send my last email at 4:07.  It reads: “You’re hilarious.  And a treasure. Thanks again, U” On a Saturday afternoon.  For a ... Usha Rodrigues on Larry Ribstein

Larry Ribstein, an unforgotten mentor in my lifetime

I’ve been deeply saddened since I heard of the heartbreaking news about Larry. I had the privilege to be advised by Larry along my intellectual journey when studying in the US. Larry has set an example of what it means to be a passionate researcher and an enthusiastic educator, which will always remind me of ... Larry Ribstein, an unforgotten mentor in my lifetime

Remembering Larry Ribstein

I was terribly saddened and, quite frankly, dumbfounded when I heard that Larry Ribstein had passed away. I had seen Larry approximately three weeks before when he gave a workshop at Yale and the last thought that would have crossed my mind would have been that I would be receiving such horrible news. At the ... Remembering Larry Ribstein

Larry Ribstein, Philosopher

Everyone who knew Larry Ribstein realized that he was very smart, very tough, and very hard working. Less well appreciated was his absolutely uncompromising commitment to the pursuit of the truth. Surprisingly, perhaps, this is a very rare quality among legal academics. It is the mark of a philosopher, by which I emphatically do not ... Larry Ribstein, Philosopher

Larry Ribstein’s Top Posts of 2011

Happy New Year TOTM readers.  I’ve had a very difficult time returning to blogging.  Monday mornings I would normally wake up to a string of four or five of Larry’s posts already up and attracting comments.   He had a way of making one feel incredibly inefficient and unproductive by comparison!  Of course, there was never ...

Remembering Larry: My Friend, Mentee and a Great Intellect

In 1986, when I set out to develop a Law and Economics-oriented law school at George Mason University, I knew that I had a “secret weapon”, the list of about 450 law professors who had by then attended the Law and Economics Center’s Economics Institutes for Law Professors.  I did not have a large budget, ...

Remembering Larry

It is hard to imagine a world without Larry. I had the privilege of being his colleague at Illinois for four years and getting to interact with Larry regularly was among the best things about that time. My office was between his office and the coffee machine and he’d regularly stop in, casually toss of ... Remembering Larry

Remembering Larry Ribstein

  Like everyone else, I am shaken by Larry’s untimely passing. He was a fine scholar and a truly nice person. His *generosity* is what I remember most about him, especially as relates to younger scholars. As Geoff has mentioned, an obvious example of Larry’s generosity to the young was his willingness to put his ... Remembering Larry Ribstein

Farewell, Larry

Larry was a brilliant, prolific, and provocative scholar who will be sorely missed.  His articles, blog posts, comments on my work, etc. sharpened my thinking and writing immeasurably.  Rest in peace Larry.  Your friend, Bill.

Larry Ribstein, In Memoriam

I knew Larry from attending many conferences together for many years and from reading and profiting from his work.  I always enjoyed seeing him and considered him a friend.  This news is devastating.  I had recently discussed his work on movies, and tried to induce him to edit a special issue for Managerial and Decision ...

We will miss you Larry

The world will be a different place without Larry Ribstein.  I and many others know how generous he was with his time in mentoring students and junior scholars, a generosity that is precious for someone as prolific as Larry.  When he shared feedback, he always insisted that a scholar give their best, as he did ...
