We at CALI were saddened to hear about the recent death of Professor Craig Callen. Craig was an author of several very popular CALI lessons in Evidence. By my counts, his lessons were used by law students tens of thousands of times over the past 8 years.
Craig was always a pleasure to work with. He was a serious academic with a depth of knowledge that was astonishing at times, but he was never stuffy. He was witty and at times quite a piquant conversationalist. He was dutiful in his obligations and never failed to stop by for a chat when visiting CALI staff at our booth during the annual AALS meetings.
I meet and interact with so many people and sometimes the names and faces blur in my memory, but my memories of Craig are sharp and pleasant. He will be missed. My condolences and prayers go out to Craig's family and his community of friends, colleagues and students at Michigan State University College of Law.
