Civil procedure scholar added to College of Law faculty
June 10, 2013
Bryan D. Lammon, a visiting assistant professor of law at Washington University School of Law since 2011, joins the College of Law faculty this fall. Professor Lammon will teach Evidence and Conflicts of Law during the 2013-2014 school year.
“We’re tremendously lucky that Bryan Lammon will be joining our faculty,” said Geoffrey Rapp, the Harold A. Anderson Professor of Law and Values and chair of the faculty appointments committee. “His student evaluations at Washington University were outstanding – I can’t count the number of students who said he was the best professor they’d had while in law school.”
Lammon earned his law degree at Washington University, where he graduated first in his class and was an editor for the Washington University Law Review. His student note on the Fourth Amendment received the Mary Collier Hitchcock Prize for outstanding law review writing. He earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Notre Dame, where he won the John Harold Sheehan Award for the best senior honors essay in economics.
After law school, Lammon clerked for Judge Edward C. Prado on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and practiced appellate litigation in Jones Day’s Chicago office.
Professor Lammon’s scholarly career is off to an outstanding start. He published “What We Talk About When We Talk About Ideology: Judicial Politics Scholarship and Naïve Legal Realism” in the St. John’s Law Review in 2009. His latest piece, “Rules, Standards and Experimentation in Appellate Jurisdiction,” will be published this year in the Ohio State Law Journal.
Lammon joins the faculty as an assistant professor of law.
