This short symposium essay pays tribute to my friend and mentor, Professor Mike Lewis, who tragically passed away from illness in the prime of his career last year. It examines his influence in the fields of international law and the law of war and the example he set for students over the course of nine academic years at Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law. The essay concludes by calling on law schools to consider hiring more faculty members like Mike, whose career included service as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy, the private sector, and significant courtroom practice.
