The Connecticut Law Tribune


Quintin Johnstone, an influential presence in Connecticut's legal community for more than a half century and a longtime professor at Yale Law School, has died at age 99. Johnstone was also a member of The Law Tribune's Editorial Board from its inception in 1987 until 2011, and chaired the board, which produces opinion pieces for the newspaper, for about a decade.

    I was a student of Quintin Johnstone at Yale Law School. I took every course he taught. He had an unusual dedication to teaching and to his students. Beneath a terse, unflappable exterior was an exemplary human being who enjoyed the long life he truly deserved. Thank you Professor Johnstone.
