I write with incredible sadness to inform all of you that, last evening, our friend and long-time member of our community, Professor Joe Feller, was struck and killed by a car. I know this must come as a shock to all of you, and this is certainly a terrible loss to the College of Law.
Many of you knew Professor Feller personally; some may remember fondly class trips to the Grand Canyon with him. For those who didn’t know him well, he was an incredible teacher and advocate for environmental causes. He will be greatly missed. In the days to come, we will make plans to honor Professor Feller’s memory and service, and we welcome any thoughts or suggestions on how you might want to see him honored.
We invite you to reach out to members of our law school community during this difficult time.

Dean Doug Sylvester
Joe Feller was a great friend, mentor and advocate for the Indian Legal Program and many ILP students over his years at the law school. He will be greatly missed by ILP faculty, staff and alums.
