Most of the other participants in this festschrift have been personally associated with Dean Leon Green as students, colleagues, and friends. They have benefited directly from his extraordinary intellect and personality. It is no wonder that they have contributed to this issue.

My first serious discussion with Dean Green took place just a few months ago. Yet such is the nature of Dean Green's scholarly achievements that, as a torts teacher nearly half a century his junior, I could view him as my teacher, colleague, and friend long before I met him. It is particularly fitting, then, that I participate in honoring Dean Green, for when I write I represent not only myself, but countless other unknown students, colleagues, and friends, past and yet to come. On their behalf as well as my own, I gratefully dedicate this article to him.
