Meredith R. Miller is a legal educator and scholar. She is also the principal of Miller Law, PLLC. Miller Law serves two constituencies: attorneys requiring consultation and small business clients in need of representation and advising.
Since beginning her career as a law professor in 2004, Meredith has taught law school classes in writing and research, contracts, civil procedure, business organizations and employment law. Her teaching has been recognized more than once with a “Professor of the Year” award from her students at the Touro College, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, where she is a faculty member.
Meredith’s scholarly papers are widely cited in influential law journals and leading law school casebooks. Her writing focuses on contract doctrine and theory and business law; she has lectured on these topics throughout the world.
Meredith passionately believes that her knowledge should extend beyond the classroom and her teaching aims to reflect the realties of law as it is actually practiced. In addition to her work as a law professor, Meredith has continued to work on a project basis with other attorneys who need assistance on dispositive motions and appeals. In her legal practice, Meredith leverages her background in business and commercial litigation to represent small businesses, start-ups and freelancers in transactional matters. She serves as Vice Chair of the LeGAL judicial screening panel and has trained as a mediator with Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
Meredith graduated from Union College, cum laude, with an interdisciplinary major in English and Visual Art. She received her J.D., cum laude, from Brooklyn Law School, where she was the Executive Articles and Research Editor of the Brooklyn Law Review, an Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Fellow and a Richardson Merit Scholar. She earned an LL.M in Legal Education from Temple University Beasley School of Law, where she served as an Abraham L. Freedman Fellow. Meredith served as a law clerk to the New York Court of Appeals and as a litigation associate at Proskauer Rose, LLP. She is admitted to practice law in New York and Massachusetts.
