I loved serving on a faculty with Lionel Smith. He’s one of those ideal colleagues who cares about ideas, who has a big brain, and who is relentlessly collegial. He’s a prolific scholar (see his SSRN page here) but you might not know that because he’s wonderfully modest. Enjoy “Can we be obliged to be selfless?” as a warm up to Lionel. One of the reasons I am recommending the piece is that Lionel takes issue with other scholars’ ideas (Matthew Conaghlen and Arthur Laby). I like when scholars gracefully do that. When done thoughtfully, it is the best kind of tribute.
