Collection Description & Arrangement

This collection, an addendum to the papers of David A. Martin, was received in June of 2015. It is comprised of 36 boxes (14.4 linear ft.) and conveys the breadth of Martin’s career as professor of law, researcher, author, and public servant. The files are grouped in four categories: General (Boxes 1-20); Casebooks and Published Articles (Boxes 20-22); Law School Files and Teaching Notes and Materials (Boxes 22-29) and Asylum and Immigration Research (Boxes 29-36). The files include papers regarding his search for employment as a law professor, his research and work on the casebook he co-authored, Immigration and Citizenship: Process and Policy, his memberships and work with the American Society of International Law and the American Bar Association, and numerous articles, books, and chapters of books authored by Martin. The scope of papers in the collection include memoranda, personal notes, drafts, correspondence, research, and proposals.

The collection also includes his notes and outlines for classes he taught in Constitutional Law, International Human Rights, Property Law, and Refugee Law. In addition, the files include memoranda, correspondence for his work with the Nobel Peace Laureates Conference at the University of Virginia and the seminar he created to correspond with the conference.  There are documents that relate to the Virginia 2020 Agenda for the Third Century an initiative from UVA president John Casteen to internationalize the University of Virginia.

These files contain proposals, personal notes, research, correspondence, and memoranda regarding his Sesquicentennial Associateship, his work with Administrative Conference of the United States, and attendance at numerous conferences and meetings.

A notation by Martin on one of his student’s papers for his Nobel Peace Laureate seminar summarizes his philosophy for being a lawyer, professor, and author: “Lawyers need to develop a passion for getting all the details right.”
