An Uncommon Lawyer, 42 Harv. Int'l L.J. 7 (2001)

Abstract

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.
