Professor Arthur R. Miller Visits Texas Tech Law

February 2019


Texas Tech law students had the enormous privilege of spending a week with the nation’s leading scholar in the field of civil procedure.

Professor Arthur R. Miller, a University Professor at New York University School of Law and the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies, spent a week at Texas Tech Law teaching a seminar on complex litigation.

In addition to his week-long seminar, Professor Miller spent the morning enjoying coffee with small groups of students. He shared stories about the Emmy won for his work on The Constitution: That Delicate Balance, reports that he served as inspiration for Scott Turow’s intimidating law professor Rudolph Perini in One L, and his experiences arguing before the US Supreme Court.

Professor Miller also explored trends in litigation in a student lunch question and answer session on Thursday, January 31. Professor Miller captivated the lunch-time audience speaking on class actions as a means of ensuring equal treatment and access to justice, and the impact of electronic discovery on litigation. He also shared stories fun about his favorite television interview and his favorite Supreme Court argument.

The entire Texas Tech community extends its gratitude to alumnus Mark Lanier ’84 for securing this wonderful experience for our students.
