The Washington Law Review dedicates its October 2012 issue to Professor Richard O. Kümmert who passed away last April at the age of seventy-nine. Professor Kümmert served as the faculty advisor to the Washington Law Review for over four decades. The success of this publication owes, in many ways, to Professor Kummert's steadfast guidance. The following memorial remarks come from his former students, colleagues, and friends. Many, but not all, of these remarks have been graciously adapted from speeches given at Professor Kummert's memorial service, which was held at the University of Washington School of Law on April 29, 2012.
