In Memorium: Henry G. Manne

Professor Henry G. Manne died on January 17. Manne served as Dean of George Mason Law School from 1986 until 1997, and George Mason University Foundation Professor until 1999. The school’s Henry G. Manne Moot Court Competition for Law & Economics and the Henry G. Manne Program in Law and Economics Studies are named for him.

Professor Manne was designated one of the founders of the field of law and economics by the American Law and Economics Association. He launched the Law and Economics Center at Emory University and the University of Miami before bringing it to George Mason. Lauded as a cultural laureate of the Commonwealth of Virginia, he was the driving force behind the many innovations in legal education implemented at George Mason.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2015


In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Law Library will be closed on Monday, January 19.

The Birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. became a federal holiday (5 U.S.C. § 6103(a)) fifteen years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death. The holiday was first observed in 1986, but it took another 17 years for nationwide recognition. In 1994, the holiday was designated a day of service under the direction of the Corporation for National and Community Service.

For resources about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., visit the The King Center Center Website.
