Faruki Ireland & Cox’s Dan Donnellon wins the UC College of Law 2012 Adjunct Faculty Teaching Excellence Award

Dan DonnellonCINCINNATI—Faruki Ireland & Cox P.L.L. ( is proud to announce that partner Dan Donnellon has received the 2012 Adjunct Professor Outstanding Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Cincinnati College of Law. For the past three years, Donnellon has been an adjunct faculty member at the University of Cincinnati College of Law where he teaches advanced trial practice and coaches the competitive mock trial teams.

The Adjunct Faculty Teaching Award is based on student nominations. The nominations are then submitted to the University of Cincinnati College of Law Alumni Association. Along with serving as an adjunct faculty member and coach of the mock trial teams, Donnellon is a 1986 graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Law and a former Law Review editor.

“I am honored that my students took the time to nominate me and that the Association provided this recognition. But, helping to develop law students into future trial lawyers is its own reward. I was fortunate enough over 20 years ago to have been taught advanced trial advocacy and complex litigation by my now law partner Charlie Faruki whom I, and others in Ohio, consider to be the most outstanding in our field. Had Charlie not volunteered his time for others, and myself, then my career would not likely have been as successful. I am not only happy to give back, but also happy to be recognized for the effort,” said Dan Donnellon.

In addition to his 24 years as a practicing attorney, this past year Donnellon was recognized as an Ohio Super Lawyer, along with many of his fellow Faruki Ireland & Cox partners. In addition to volunteering for the University of Cincinnati, Donnellon is active in children’s religious education at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, and was a founder and the first president of the St. Thomas More Society of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. An advocate for the Deaf, Donnellon is a former board member of St. Rita School for the Deaf, and is fluent in American Sign Language.
