Congratulations to my good friend, Mike Zimmer, who is moving next academic year from Seton Hall to Loyola-Chicago full-time.
Mike received his A.B. and J.D. from Marquette University (a very fine school I might add), where he was Editor in Chief of the Marquette Law Review. He also holds an LL.M from Columbia University, where he was named a James Kent Fellow. Following law school, he clerked for the Honorable Thomas E. Fairchild of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and then served as an associate at Foley & Lardner in Milwaukee (a great city I might add).
He began his law school teaching career at the University of South Carolina and he has taught at a number of law schools, most recently as a visiting professor of law at Northwestern University. He joined the Seton Hall University School of Law in 1978, served as Associate Dean from 1990 to 1994 and has been on the faculty until 2008. He has taught in summer programs to American law students in Italy, France and England and to Chinese law students in Beijing.
A widely recognized scholar in the areas of employment discrimination law, labor and employment law and constitutional law, Mike is co-author of the well-regarded and widely-adopted Cases and Materials on Employment Discrimination (1982; 2d ed. 1988; 3d ed. 1994; 4th ed. 1997, 5th ed. 2000; 6th ed. 2003; 7th ed. 2008), The Global Workplace (2006), Employment Discrimination: Law & Practice (2002), Employment Discrimination (1988), Cases & Materials on Employment Law (1993), Federal Statutory Law of Employment Discrimination (1980) and author of Employment Discrimination Roadmap. He has also published articles in numerous leading law journals.
Mike has taught employment discrimination law, employment law, international and comparative employment law and labor law and has also taught torts, contracts, constitutional law, administrative law and US foreign relations law.
As I told Mike in an email to him a short while ago, I am thrilled to add him to the labor and employment law professor community in the greater Chicago-Milwaukee area. I also expect him to provide me with guided tours of the Milwaukee area!
