David Caron (1952-2018)

The Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law is saddened by the loss of Professor Emeritus David Caron (’83), who passed away on February 20 at the age of 65.  He was one of the founding faculty directors of the Miller Institute and was instrumental in its success over the years.

He left Berkeley Law in 2013 to become Dean of the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London.  David also served as president of the American Society of International Law, a judge at the Iran-US Claims Tribunal in The Hague, and sat as an ad hoc judge‎ at the International Court of Justice.

His death is an enormous loss not only to his family, but also to his friends, colleagues, and the many students whose lives he enriched over the years.
