R. Perry Sentell Jr., Marion and W. Colquitt Carter Chair in Tort and Insurance Law Emeritus, passed away on January 28, 2021. Sentell was a 1958 law school alumnus, and retired on July 1, 2004 after over 46 years of teaching and service to the University of Georgia. A prolific scholar, and a titan in the legal academy, Sentell was also a demanding instructor who set high expectations but with a warm heart for his students. Sentell published nearly 30 books over the course of his career. Among his law school honors are a bust in the Alexander Campbell King Law Library, the law school’s Distinguished Service Scroll Award and an endowed scholarship fund named in his honor. Several generations of lawyers and policymakers in Georgia have looked to Sentell for guidance on matters pertaining to local government law and torts. He has been honored by the Georgia House of Representatives, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and the Georgia Municipal Association for distinguished service to the advancement of legal education. Graduates have selected Sentell 11 times as their class marshal, a distinction given to the law school faculty or staff member whom they most respect.
