Villanova Law Review
At least since Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren's seminal 1890 article "The Right to Privacy,"' the idea of privacy has sparked some of the most significant and contentious debates in American law. Over the past three decades, Richard Turkington focused his formidable intellect on enriching those debates. Dick's untimely passing in 2004 deprived those of us who knew and worked with him of a treasured friend and a brilliant colleague. The broader legal profession lost a visionary. Probably more than any other scholar of his generation, Dick was responsible for expanding and deepening our understanding of the essential, sometimes elusive, idea of privacy in the legal domain. His omnivorous mind reached across disciplines and doctrines to generate unprecedented insights about why human beings care so much about privacy, in what circumstances legal relationships and privacy concerns affect one another, and how courts and policymakers should think about the interplay of privacy interests and competing societal concerns. In light of Dick's towering influence in the privacy field, his colleagues at the Villanova University School of Law decided that the school could honor his memory most appropriately by convening a stellar group of scholars to explore how the law of privacy will develop in the decades to come.
