Helmholz, Richard April 2007Richard Helmholz is a scholar, mentor, and gentleman. That he is a scholaris obvious to anyone who has visited his faculty page on the University of Chicago Law School web site and seen his list of publications and other achievements. Indeed, a glance at the bibliography accompanying this volume confirms that his scholarly output has been prodigious. At the sametime, Dick has an enviable knack for addressing a variety of subjects—from the history of marriage law to the work of the ecclesiastical courts to the privilege against self-incrimination—with sophistication and rigor, while keeping a light touch and remaining accessible. Proving once again that nothing succeeds like success, his peers have recognized his achievements and added to his list of honors. He is or hasbeen a visiting professor and fellow (on multiple occasions) at Oxford and Cambridge, a Guggenheim Fellow, an Elected Member of the American Law Institute, a Fellow of the British Academy, of the Royal HistoricalSociety, and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, along withmany other recognitions and awards. He has served in numerous leadership capacities in professional and scholarly organizations, including the American Bar Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies,the American Society for Legal History, the Institute of Medieval Canon Law, and the Selden Society. Perhaps not surprisingly, his stature asa scholar has led to a number of appointments to editorial positions suchas Brill Publishers’ Series on Medieval Law and its Practice, the series Comparative Studies in Continental and Anglo-American Legal History,
