Tribute to John Sexton, 60 NYU Annual Survey of American Law 17 (2004)


What is it that makes John Sexton so special?

It is a combination of qualities that makes him so unusual as to be more nearly unique than rare! Let's go back and see how this all came to be.

First, one should never forget his background in history and religion. Before he had anything to do with law, he was a tenured professor and real scholar of comparative religion and history of American religion. This has given John an insight into America that virtually no other major legal scholar today has.
