Summary: Yale mourns the loss of Robert Burt.

Yale Law has lost a good one now that Professor Emeritus Robert “Bo” A. Burt has passed, as of August 3, 2015, after 75 years of a full life. His friends and colleagues mourn not only the loss of a warm and brilliant man, but an accomplished writer who tackled problems much wider than law, ranging from books written about patient doctor relationships, and his latest, a look at the book of Job.


“Over the course of his career, Bo wrote on many subjects, seemingly remote from one another. He wrote a seminal book on the relationship between doctors and patients. He wrote another on the role of the Supreme Court in our legal and political system. And his most recent book was a marvelously original study of the Book of Job in the Hebrew Bible,” said Sterling Professor of Law Anthony Kronman, former Dean of Yale Law School, who also called Burt “brilliant, kind, and profoundly attuned to the hopes and fears of human beings.”

Such an eclectic and polymath approach to law is exactly what you would expect Yale to produce. Burt graduated with a J.D. degree from Yale in 1964, after winning his M.A. in Jurisprudence from Oxford University in 1962 and a B.A. from Princeton University in 1960.
