Meet and Greet with new ILP professor, Robert J.Miller.
Professor Miller worked with the Stoel Rives law firm from 1992-1995 and practiced Indian law with Hobbs, Straus, Dean & Walker from 1995-1999. Immediately upon graduating, Professor Miller clerked for Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Miller was involved in the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial after his tribal council appointed him to the Circle of Tribal Advisors (COTA), which was part of the National Council of the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial. His 2006 book, Native America, Discovered and Conquered: Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, and Manifest Destiny, grew out of that work. His second book, Discovering Indigenous Lands: The Doctrine of Discovery in the English Colonies, was published by Oxford University Press in 2010, and he has completed a third book entitled Reservation “Capitalism:” Economic Development in Indian Country which was published in 2012. For the past five years Miller has maintained a blog on Indian affairs that has been noticed by the wallstreetjournal.com and a poll of leading Indian blogs and will be archived by the Library of Congress. He is an enrolled citizen of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma.
Deli Lunch will be served.
