Christopher Clayton Joyner: In Memoriam

It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of my dear friend Chris Joyner. Chris died peacefully this evening at the Virginia Hospital Center after a short illness. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Nancy, and his children, Kristin and Clayton.

Chris was a world-renowned scholar of international law, a dear friend and mentor to me and so many, and a true son of Georgetown. He will be greatly missed.

    I was hugely saddened to learn of Chris’ death. He was a most congenial, helpful and supportive colleague on the International Law Section of the ISA. And, of course, a considerabel scholar. He will be greatly missed.
