University of Cincinnati College of Law Professor Michael E. Solimine, one of the nation’s leading scholars in the American civil litigation system, has been awarded this year’s Faculty Excellence Award at the UC College of Law.
The Faculty Excellence Award, funded by the Twenty-Fifth Reunion Faculty Excellence Fund, honors a faculty member who has made the greatest scholarly contribution to legal education within an academic year.
A member of the faculty since 1986, Professor Solimine is the Donald P. Klekamp Professor of Law. He teaches courses on civil procedure, federal courts, election law and conflict of laws. He previously received the College of Law’s Harold C. Schott Scholarship Award, Harold C. Schott Publication Prize, and Goldman Prize for Excellence in Teaching, as well as the University’s Faculty Career Award and Faculty-to-Faculty Research Mentoring Award.
A prolific author, Professor Solimine’s oft-cited research has focused on, among other things, appellate litigation, empirical studies of various aspects of civil litigation in federal and state courts, the doctrinal implications of the similarities and differences between the institutional structures of federal and state courts, and the decision making of judges on those courts. Much of his current scholarship examines important questions pertaining to three-judge district courts.
He was recognized in Brian Leiter’s Law School Reports as one of the most cited professors in civil procedure this decade. His work has been cited and discussed in more than 2000 books and articles. And, at least six of his articles have been cited more than 100 times.
