In Memoriam

With deep sadness, we announce the passing of our dear friend and co-founder, Bob (Robert B.) Seidman. Bob and Ann (his wife of 68 years) founded ICLAD to help improve the lives of people worldwide. As a team, they developed ICLAD's approach to designing laws that solve social problems. Using this approach, they sought to help governments and citizens use law to reduce widespread poverty and achieve good governance and development. We will miss Bob's wisdom, his kindness, his joie de vivre, and his contagious confidence that good laws can make the world better.




In his 94 years, Bob led a remarkable life. He traveled and sailed and wrote and taught, always with an aim to help others live life more fully. We are grateful for the time he shared with us.
