On 23 January 1995, as a newly appointed Constitutional Court judge, I, together with several of my new colleagues, attended a seminar on the Bill of Rights organised by the Centre for Applied Legal Studies at which Professor Frank Michelman gave the opening address. Re-reading that address in 2013 makes plain how prescient, thoughtful and deeply courteous Professor Michelman was in his opening contribution to the South African "constitutional conversation". That prescience, thoughtfulness and courtesy have characterised Professor Michelman's contributions to the South African constitutional conversation ever since. Again and again, Professor Michelman has identified the most troubling issues in our constitutional project, and again and again, analysed the issues clearly and calmly and shed light on what at times have seemed intractably difficult questions.
