In Memoriam: Florentino P. Feliciano (March 14, 1928 – December 15, 2015)

The Asian Society of International Law expresses its sadness at the passing of its Advisory Board Member, Judge Florentino Feliciano, former Associate Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court and former member of the WTO Appellate Body.  ‘A lawyer with an international reputation for the highest level of excellence and integrity, and widely considered, in the words of his peers, a “towering scholar in international law”. He was a prolific writer and lecturer, an arbiter, an adviser, a teacher, an inspiring mentor, a patriot, and until his passing, and despite all of his achievements and learning, an avid and curious student of the law.’ A tribute by Judge Feliciano’s colleagues can be found here.
