The Loyola University Chicago community mourns the death of Michael Zimmer, JD, professor in the School of Law. Mike passed away on Wednesday, September 23.

Mike began his law school teaching career at the University of South Carolina and taught at a number of law schools. In 1978 he joined the Seton Hall University School of Law, where he served as the associate dean from 1990 to 1994 and a member of their faculty until 2008. Mike joined the School of Law as a full-time faculty member in 2008 and taught constitutional law, international and comparative employment law, and labor law. He also spent many summers teaching law students in summer programs in China, England, France, and Italy.

Mike was a widely recognized and published scholar in the areas of employment discrimination law, labor and employment law, and constitutional law. He coauthored one of the leading employment discrimination casebooks, as well as one of the first casebooks on international and comparative employment law.
