On April 8, 2020, the CCIL sadly lost one of its Honourary Life Member, Edward Graham Lee. Ted was involved in different capacities over the years, including as CCIL President in 1994-1996. In 2008, he was awarded the John Read Medal in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the cause of international law and organization. A career diplomat, he served Canada for almost 40 years in that capacity. Upon his retirement in 1993, he taught international law at the University of Ottawa, and authored numerous articles published in Canadian law journals.

On behalf of CCIL, we offer our condolences to his family and loved ones.

Our next CCIL Bulletin will offer a tribute to Ted.

The CCIL community was saddened by the passing of Allan Gotlieb on April 18, 2020. Most people will remember him as a distinguished Canadian international lawyer, and in particular one who has made a lasting mark on Canada-US relations as Ambassador to the US in the 1980s. However, few may know that he was one of the members of the first Executive Board of CCIL. Specifically, he was elected at the June 5, 1972 meeting where the CCIL was established.
