An Uncommon Lawyer, 42 Harv. Int'l L.J. 7 (2001)
Abe Chayes was an uncommon lawyer. As much as any lawyer of his time, he understood and inhabited the twin worlds of thought and action in the global realm. When I first heard that Abe had died, I walked directly from my office at the State Department, down one flight, to the conference room of his old domain, the Office of the Legal Adviser. There, amid a gallery of Legal Advisers, hangs a picture of Abe as he looked during the Kennedy Administration: impossibly young and dashing, with that insouciant smile and those penetrating eyes.
