Paul L. Boley Law Library

Welcome Arthur R. Miller

March 13, 2018

The Boley Law Library is pleased to welcome Professor Arthur R. Miller to Lewis & Clark Law School. We are very fortunate to have Professor Miller as our 2018 Higgins Distinguished Visitor. Professor Miller will be providing the Higgins Distinguished Visitor Lecture on March 13, “Reflections on the State of Our Civil Justice System.” Professor Miller’s weeklong campus visit also includes several class visits and meetings with faculty and students.

Professor Miller is the nation’s leading scholar in the field of civil procedure. He is best known in library quarters as the co-author with the late Charles Wright of Federal Practice and Procedure, better known as “Wright and Miller.” Relied upon by judges, practitioners, faculty, and students alike, this multi-volume treatise is the authoritative source for coverage of federal civil, criminal, and appellate procedure, including extensive analysis of every associated rule, forms relevant to the rules, and multiple indexes and tables appreciated by your local law librarians and researchers alike.

Law students will also be very familiar with Professor Miller’s casebook, Civil Procedure: Cases and Materials, now in its 11th edition; Civil Procedure, the essential hornbook, now in its 5th edition, and Intellectual Property: Patents, Trademarks, and Copyright in a Nutshell, also the 5th edition. Students also have likely viewed The Constitution, That Delicate Balance, for which Professor Miller hosted and won an Emmy.

Find a full list of Professor Miller’s publications in his curriculum vitae. The Law Library holds most of Professor Miller’s works in its collection. And for any we may have missed just look to our Summit sister libraries. We’ll also have access to all of Professor Miller’s published articles and other writings via our Primo catalog and our research databases.
