Arthur Miller is one of the nation’s most distinguished legal scholars in the areas of civil litigation, copyright, unfair competition, and privacy. Miller joined NYU School of Law from Harvard Law School, where he not only earned his law degree but also taught for 36 years.


A renowned commentator on law and society, he won an Emmy for his work on PBS’s The Constitution: That Delicate Balance and served for two decades as the legal editor for ABC’s Good Morning America. Miller has argued cases in all of the U.S. circuit courts of appeals as well as several before the U.S. Supreme Court. He has worked in the public interest in the areas of privacy, computers, copyright, and the courts.


Miller has served as a member and reporter of the Advisory Committee of Civil Rules of the Judicial Conference of the United States by appointment of two chief justices of the United States, as reporter and adviser to the American Law Institute, and as a member of a special advisory group to the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Miller is the recipient of numerous awards, including five honorary doctorates, three American Bar Association Gavel Awards and a Special Recognition Gavel Award for promoting public understanding of the law. He recently was honored by the Queen of England for his charitable and media work by being named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
