JONES-- William Kenneth. Columbia Law School notes with profound sadness the passing of our esteemed colleague, Kenny Jones. He graduated from the Law School at the top of his class in 1954, and joined our faculty in 1959. A dedicated and respected teacher to an international cadre of students, he taught courses on contracts, torts, property, and law and economics, until he retired in 2001 as professor emeritus. In addition to a long career as a member of the faculty, Kenny was a devoted public servant, as a member of the President's Task Force on Antitrust Policy, and as Public Service Commissioner for the State of New York, among other notable contributions. The Law School community will remember Kenny for his extraordinary integrity and unflinching dedication to principle, as well for his compassion, intelligence, and energy.
