Yesterday I attended the funeral service for long-time UGA law professor Milner Ball. Milner was best known as a constitutional law professor. He was also well known for creating the first civil law clinical program here at UGA - the Public Interest Practicum, and our first Environmental Law Clinic. (The Land Use Clinic is an offshoot of the Enviornmental Law Practicum that grew out of that first clinic.) All of the clinicians here owe a huge debt to Milner. Indeed, most of us would not be here without his influence and guidance. We all miss his grace, cheer, intellect, and gentle leadership.
His obituary can be found here. My condolences go out to his wife June, and his children and grandchildren.

UPDATE: The UGA School of Law has launched a tribute page for Milner.
