Professor Miller joined the Immigrant Rights Clinic in July 2017. She is a social justice lawyer who is committed to defending our immigrant communities against systemic injustices in the legal system. She strives to train the next generation of zealous, competent, and ethical immigrant defenders.
Prior to joining the UB faculty, Professor Miller was a Managing Attorney in the Children’s Representation Project at the Immigrant Defenders Law Center (ImmDef) in Los Angeles, California. At ImmDef, she defended children in deportation proceedings, represented individuals before the California Supreme Court, California Courts of Appeal and the Board of Immigration Appeals, and drafted legislation to enhance protections for unaccompanied minors. Previously, she worked in the Immigrants’ Rights Project at Public Counsel as a staff attorney, where she represented teen asylum seekers and children eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). Prior to that, Professor Miller was a staff attorney at the Immigration Center for Women and Children where she represented victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and other serious crimes in their affirmative and defensive U Visa, T Visa, and VAWA applications. Professor Miller also served as a Legal Fellow at the Public Law Center where she organized and led DACA workshops.
Professor Miller received her B.A. from Columbia University and graduated cum laude from DePaul University College of Law with a certificate in Public Interest Law. She is an active member of the National Lawyers Guild, and in her free time enjoys hiking with her husband Erik and reading a good book on the couch with her cats, Prof. Lupin and Albus Dumbledore.
