Roger Fisher, a Harvard Law School professor and author has passed away at the age of 90. Fisher taught law at Harvard for 60 years and is a former associate at Covington & Burling LLP. Fisher was a graduate of Harvard, served in World War II, and then returned to Harvard to study law.

“His experiences in the war, and the loss of friends, inspired him to look for better ways for nations to resolve their differences,” according to an obituary from Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Fisher’s son, Dr. Elliott S. Fisher, is a professor of medicine at the school.
