Dean Michael Wolff Reflects on the Life of Judge Teitelman

November 29, 2016

Judge Rick Teitelman's life truly was a gift, an inspiration to our students, a friend to our faculty, and a tireless champion of justice. He helped our legal clinics in many ways, not in the least by helping to establish the David Grant clinic awards for our top clinic students, an award named for a pioneering African American lawyer who was his friend.

He was generous with his time, and effusive in his praise and encouragement when our students and faculty advanced the cause of justice. "Look for the justice in the case," was the theme of his last appearance last week with our students of the American Constitution Society - that was his judicial philosophy. 

He made access to justice a lifelong cause. He was a constant source of inspiration to law students, to children with disabilities, and his life's work in Legal Services, in the judiciary and in his charitable activities enhanced the life chances of countless Missourians.  Judge Rick truly was a selfless man living his life for others, a life that, to our sadness, was far too short.
