Marc L. Miller '84 Named Interim Dean of University of Arizona College of Law

From the UA website:

University of Arizona law professor Marc L. Miller has been chosen as dean of the University of Arizona's James E. Rogers College of Law on an interim basis, effective Nov. 1.

“He is a nationally recognized legal scholar, bringing that insight to the position, as well as his passion and energy,” said UA Provost Andrew Comrie...

Miller came to the James E. Rogers College of Law in 2006 as the Ralph W. Bilby Professor of Law after 17 years at Emory University School of Law, where he served as associate dean for faculty and scholarship. At the UA, he has been a co-director of the Program in Criminal Law and Policy, and since 2011 has served as vice dean of the college.

Miller teaches and writes about criminal law and environmental law and is the author of more than 70 articles and essays in these fields, as well as on immigration, constitutional law and legal theory. Much of his work focuses on the regulation of prosecutors, and more generally the “internal” regulation of executive branch agencies.

He is the editor of two leading casebooks, one on criminal procedure and the other on the law of sentencing. He co-founded the Federal Sentencing Reporter, the leading journal on sentencing law and policy that for 20 years has focused on nurturing an ongoing conversation among scholars, judges, lawyers, probation officers and policy-makers...

Prior to his career in legal academia, Miller worked as an attorney-adviser in the Office of Legal Counsel, United States Department of Justice, and as a law clerk in Montgomery, Ala. for Chief Judge John C. Godbold of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, and as special counsel to the Vera Institute of Justice in New York.

He grew up in Los Angeles and earned his undergraduate degree at Pomona College and his law degree from the University of Chicago Law School, where he was managing editor and book review editor for the Chicago Law Review.
