It’s a pleasure to introduce my law school classmate Adam Steinman as a guest blogger for the month of December. Adam is a Professor of Law at the University of Cincinnati, where he teaches Civil Procedure, International Business Transactions, and International Trade. Like yours truly, Adam is a proud procedure nerd, and his guest post on Iqbal last August generated much interest and thoughtful discussion from Co-Op readers.
Adam received his J.D. from the Yale Law School and his LLM from Georgetown University Law Center. Prior to joining the legal academy, he clerked for Judge Buchmeyer of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas and Judge Garza of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, held a clinical teaching fellowship at Georgetown Law, and litigated with Perkins Coie LLP in Seattle.
Adam’s scholarship focuses on civil procedure and federal courts. His most recent article, The Pleading Problem, is forthcoming in Volume 62 of the Stanford Law Review (2010). Recent publications include:
What Is the Erie Doctrine? (And What Does It Mean for the Contemporary Politics of Judicial Federalism?), 84 Notre Dame L. Rev. 245 (2008)
Reinventing Appellate Jurisdiction, 48 Boston College L. Rev. 1237 (2007)
The Irrepressible Myth of Celotex: Reconsidering Summary Judgment Burdens Twenty Years after the Trilogy, 63 Washington & Lee L. Rev. 81 (2006)
Adam also co-edits the Civil Procedure and Federal Courts blog.
