The article, “Rules, Standards and Experimentation in Appellate Jurisdiction,” was published in the Ohio State Law Journal in 2013.

The annual Eisenberg Prize recognizes the publication of high-quality articles in the field of appellate practice and procedure. Winners receive $2,000.

Lammon joins a distinguished list of past awardees, including last year’s recipient, Judge Richard Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, one of the most well-known jurists in the country.

Lammon will receive the prize in April at the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers’ spring meeting in Santa Fe, N.M.

“It is absolutely phenomenal that someone at such an early stage of his career would win this award. Professor Lammon has a tremendously promising future as a scholar and is already a highly accomplished teacher. We are very proud of his accomplishment,” Daniel Steinbock, dean of the UT College of Law, said.

According to its website, the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers is committed to advancing the administration of justice and promoting the highest standards of professionalism and advocacy in appellate courts. Membership is reserved for experienced appellate advocates who have demonstrated the highest skill level and integrity.
