Professor Bernard L. Segal, one of the world's great trial lawyers from the old school of silver-tongued orators, and a much beloved law professor, passed away Aug. 12. Bernie, as he was known by everyone he ever met, was my teacher, mentor, colleague and friend for nearly four decades. Although he faced increasingly difficult health problems in recent years, his death was unexpected, and I didn't get to see him before the end. I'm writing this because I didn't have the chance to say goodbye.
