Michael J. KlarmanProfessor Michael J. Klarman is the James Monroe Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of History at the University of Virginia. He received his B.A. and M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, his J.D. from Stanford Law School, and his Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford, where he was a Marshall Scholar.

After law school, Professor Klarman clerked for the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He joined the faculty at the University of Virginia School of Law in 1987 and has won numerous awards for his teaching and scholarship, including the State Council of Higher Education Outstanding Faculty Award, the University of Virginia Harrison Achievement Award, the University of Virginia Outstanding Teacher Award, and the inaugural Roger and Madeleine Traynor Faculty Achievement Award for Excellence in Legal Scholarship. Professor Klarman has also served as the Distinguished Visiting Lee Professor of Law at the Marshall Wythe School of Law at the College of William & Mary and as Visiting Professor at Stanford Law School.

Professor Klarman, whose scholarship is mostly in the areas of constitutional theory and constitutional history, has published dozens of articles in leading law journals and in the Journal of American History and the English Historical Review. In 2004, he published his first book, From Jim Crow to Civil Rights: The Supreme Court and the Struggle for Racial Equality (Oxford University Press). The book has been called "magnificent" by Cass Sunstein and Akhil Amar and "magisterial" by James Patterson.
