PROFESSOR ARTHUR MILLER TO GIVE SIBLEY LECTURE ON INTERNET LAW

ATHENS, Ga. - Arthur R. Miller, Bruce Bromley Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will deliver the 95th Sibley Lecture titled "The Emerging Law of the Internet" on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2002 at 3:30 p.m. in the law school's Hatton Lovejoy Courtroom. The seminar is open to the public and admission is free. Miller is a nationally-acclaimed authority on the right of privacy, copyright, and court procedure, a subject on which he has authored or co-authored more than 40 books. He has been a professor at Harvard Law School since 1971, where he has taught courses on civil procedure, copyright and complex litigation. He also operates an active law practice, particularly in the federal appellate courts.

In his public roles, Miller has served as a commissioner on the United States Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works, a reporter and member of the Judicial Conference of the United States Advisory Committee on Civil Rules and a reporter for the American Law Institute's Project on Complex Litigation. He was the host of the weekly television show "Miller's Court" for eight years and appeared on an award-winning television series on PBS-TV and on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America."

Miller earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester and his law degree from Harvard Law School. Before joining the Harvard faculty, he practiced law in New York City, N.Y., and taught at the University of Minnesota and the University of Michigan.

School of Law Dean David E. Shipley said Miller's lecture focuses on a timely topic. "Internet law is an area that grows more relevant daily. Professor Miller is a distinguished authority in a wide variety of fields, and we are privileged to have him for the Sibley Lecture Series."

The Sibley Lecture Series, established in 1964 by the Charles Loridans Foundation of Atlanta in tribute to the late John A. Sibley, is designed to attract outstanding legal scholars of national prominence to the UGA School of Law. Sibley was a 1911 graduate of the law school.
