Joseph Goldstein was a member of the Yale Law School faculty for more than 40 years. He is remembered as an exacting but kind, tireless, and devoted teacher; a creative and thoughtful scholar; and a prolific author. He taught criminal law and wrote or edited a number of books in the subject, among them a 1962 casebook, Criminal Law (with Richard Donnelly and Richard Schwartz), and in 1974, Criminal Law, Theory and Process (with Alan Dershowitz '62). He also taught and wrote in constitutional law. His book, The Intelligible Constitution, was published in 1992. But his greatest impact on legal scholarship and practice was in the area of intersection among the disciplines of law, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis.
