Robert A. Katzmann is the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

With this issue, the Columbia Human Rights Law Review—the first law school publication dedicated to human rights—completes its fiftieth volume. When its first volume went to print during the 1967–68 term, the academic study of international human rights was in its early years, the movement itself only a few decades old. In the years since, and under the watchful eye of the late great Louis Henkin, the father of the field, the Review has established itself as a distinguished journal in the legal academy, devoted to studying human rights and promoting human rights throughout the world.
