In Memoriam: A Tribute to Professor Daniel J. Freed (with Nancy Gertner and Sofia Yakren), 24 Federal Sentencing Reporter 82 (2011)


Yale Law Professor Daniel J. Freed, a cofounder of Federal Sentencing Reporter and a Vera trustee for nearly forty years, is a legendary figure in the worlds of sentencing, bail, and criminal justice generally. With his gentle but incisive approach, Dan was—and still is—a moral and intellectual North Star for generations of lawyers, judges, professors, and criminal justice policymakers. No collection of articles or stories about Vera and sentencing would be complete without a discussion of Dan. Thus, it is fitting to conclude this special issue of FSR with a tribute to Dan Freed the reformer, the scholar, the colleague, the teacher, and the cherished friend.
