Félix Somló

Bódog (Felix) Somló[1] (Hungarian: [ˈfeːliks ˈʃomloː]; 1873–1920) was a Hungarian legal scholar. Along with Hans Kelsen and Georg Jellinek, he belonged to the group of Austrian Legal Positivists.

He was a professor at the University of Kolozsvár. In 1920, he committed suicide out of disgust at the cession of his university to the Romanian state,[2] an action that had taken place the previous year.[3]
