In memory of Robert J. “Bobby” Lipkin, J.D., Ph. D.  Professor Lipkin dedicated his life to academia and the law.  His life is colored with many achievements.  He taught philosophy at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln from 1971-1973 and was Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University. After his 1984 graduation from UCLA he clerked for the Honorable Gilbert S. Merritt at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit. In 1985, Professor Lipkin came to Widener University School of Law as an Assistant Professor and later became the law school’s first H. Albert Young Fellow in Constitutional Law.   He served as an advisor to The Widener Journal of Law, Economics & Race and The Widener Law Review.

Professor Lipkin passed away in February 2010 but he left his mark on his colleagues, his students, his friends, and the legal community as a whole. In tribute we dedicate our first edition to him.
