Please join us for a conference to commemorate the life and work of Professor Emeritus David D. Caron (1952-2018), a prominent international law expert and Berkeley Law professor for 26 years.

A leading scholar, judge, and arbitrator, Caron taught at Berkeley Law from 1987 to 2013, gaining a reputation as a warm and generous peer and teacher. Colleagues recalled him as an international law “superstar,” an innovator, a mentor, and a nurturing father.

Caron became dean at Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College in London in 2013. He continued there as a professor after leaving the deanship in 2016 to assume an appointment as a judge at the Iran-US Claims Tribunal in The Hague, where he also sat as an ad hoc judge‎ at the International Court of Justice.

He was president of the American Society of International Law and the Institute for Transnational Arbitration, and also chaired the International Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools.

At Berkeley Law, Caron taught public international law, resolution of private international disputes, ocean law and policy, and an advanced international law writing workshop. He served as co-director of the school’s Miller Institute on Global Challenges and the Law, as well as co-director of the Law of the Sea Institute, an internationally recognized forum for ocean law scholarship and analysis.
