Félix Somló (Hungarian: [ˈfeːliks ˈʃomloː]; 1873–1920) was an 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 authorities of Romania, with which Transylvania had recently united.[1]
