Today was a sad day at the Law School as we learned of the death of one of our most beloved professors, David P. Currie (AB '57), who taught at the Law School for 45 years. Professor Currie was one of the foremost constitutional scholars whose best-known works were The Constitution in the Supreme Court and The Constitution in Congress three-part series. In addition to being a prolific scholar he was also one of the most popular professors here at the Law School. Although he was perhaps best known for his constitutional work Professor Currie also taught courses in a wide-range of topics including 1L courses such as Property and Civil Procedure. Known as a professor who equally loved to challenge his students and for his students to challenge him, Professor Currie was most recently recognized with the Graduating Students Award for Teaching Excellence in 2006, the fourth such time he received this honor during his more than four decades of teaching U of C students. Professor Currie's contributions to the legal community and the Law School will not be soon forgotten and we hold him up as one of the fine examples of the superb scholars and teachers that make up the Law School faculty.
