Barrett, Jr., joining the Law School in 1965. A pioneering scholar in the field of the Law of Outer Space, his career has included service as a fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science and editor of the Library Law Journal. His research interests include the rights of children and women, legal biography, and legal bibliography. Among his many publications is Problems in Legal Ethics, authored with Professor Richard C. Wydick.
