Diego A. Zambrano

The National Civil Justice Institute honored Associate Professor Diego Zambrano with a 2023 Civil Justice Scholarship Award for his article, Federal Expansion and the Decay of State Courts, 86 U. Chi. L. Rev. 2101 (2019), in which he explored the trend of federal judicial expansion into areas of state court power and federal monopolization of large and complex litigation. His article made the original claim that federal expansion may be contributing to the decay of state courts and has reinforced a plaintiff-defendant divergence between the two systems. SL
