Boston College Law School laments the passing of Professor Sanford Katz, a pillar of the community and highly regarded teacher. Prof. Katz departed from this mortal coil at the age of 90, leaving a legacy that goes well beyond the walls of a classroom. His 47-year employment at BC Law was distinguished not only by his genius but also by his unrelenting devotion to scholarship, mentorship, and the tremendous impact he had on generations of students, professors, administration, and the legal profession at large. He is a luminary in the disciplines of family law and contracts. The name of Professor Sanford Katz came to represent excellence in legal education.

Professor Sanford Katz is felt not only inside academic institutions but also in the legal profession itself. His intellectual contributions, perceptive observations, and dedication to the moral practice of law affected both seasoned practitioners and aspiring attorneys. His lessons are being used in courtrooms, law offices, and legal chambers all over the country, which is evidence of the lasting influence of a legendary figure in the legal field.

The loss of Professor Sanford Katz has been felt deeply at Boston College Law School, where he taught for almost fifty years, shaped students’ brains, and added to the school’s intellectual legacy. His passing has left a huge vacuum, and the pain that the BC Law community has felt as a group is a moving testament to the influence he had on so many people’s lives.

We acknowledge, Professor Sanford Katz, that his legacy endures in the ongoing quest of excellence, justice, and knowledge rather than being limited to the pages of history. For the next generation of lawyers who will carry on his legacy, the teachings he gave, the principles he upheld, and the influence he had on the legal profession continue to be a source of inspiration. The legal community in British Columbia comes together to grieve and remember the great loss of a legal giant in a spirit of harmony.
