Not sure what to say?

As a court reporter I had the pleasure of working with Bill on many trials, always a first class gentleman, caring, excellent attorney.

Great man and extraordinary teacher. I'll always remember your. RIP

My prayers go out for the family of the colleague we knew warmly as "WAZ. HE was a mentor to me in my early, ambitious years as a new prosecutor and he offered sage counsel mixed with uncanny wit. His smile and his laugh will be my memory of Bill. Condolences and many thanks, WAZ, from this world to the one you now inhabit.

Prof Zarling was an amazing instructor. I had the pleasure of his guidance, advice and wisdom during the Summer 2011 ITAP program at Widener. I remember leaving a rather intensive day of practicing cross examinations and saying , and hearing many others say as well, how wonderful he was, how smart he was and how encouraging and supportive his time with us was. I'm sure he will be sorely missed by those closest to him. Such an inspiration to this future lawyer!

I offer my deepest condolences and sympathies to William Zarling's family and friends. As an alumnus of Rutgers University's law school in Camden, NJ, I had an opportunity to attend William Zarling's Trial Advocacy class. He was tough, demanding, and had the highest expectations of his students. Unlike most standard law school classes that were primarily lecture based with some Socratic student participation, Mr. Zarling had us already developing and practicing our litigation skills from...

I am truly sadden to hear of Bill’s passing, I have been a friend of Bills for over 30 years there isn’t a greater gentleman then he was. He will always hold a special place in my heard and I will truly miss him. My sincerest condolences

I served on the NJ Lawyer Editorial Board with Bill for several years. He was always encouraging and supportive of his fellow editors. I looked forward to reading the editorials he drafted, and also hearing his insightful comments during the Board's discussions and debates every two weeks. He was so modest, I only now learned of all his great achievements, after reading what his many devoted friends and colleagues have been writing on this sad occasion. A truly wonderful person. I will...

Bill was a great guy and a mentor to me while at the MCPO. There isn't an attorney who went through that office in the last 30 years who didn't benefit from knowing Bill. He will be missed.

It was certainly sadly surprising to learn of Bill’s death a few days ago. As one of the faculty who has interacted with him over many years, I just want to share my thoughts about what a loss this is to our community. Look at his bio http://camlaw.rutgers.edu/directory/wzarling/ and see how he describes his connection with the law school. He wrote that he “survived” Harvard Law School, and that he “is hugely proud” of being voted Adjunct Professor of the Year—you can tell right away...
