Two hundred participants, including former students, colleagues, coauthors, and friends of W. Michael Reisman gathered at Yale Law School on April 24, 2009 for a conference in his honor, entitled "Realistic Idealism in International Law." As a leading member of the New Haven School of International Law, author of countless publications on nearly every subject within the field, esteemed arbitrator, and beloved teacher, Professor Reisman has influenced the lives of many. He is particularly important to this journal because of the integral role he played in its founding, in 1974, as Yale Studies in World Public Order. We have been proud to call him a founding father and patron of YJIL for the past thirty-four years of its existence, and we honor him with this collection of essays as a teacher and writer who has changed the way we understand and approach the study of international law.
