NEW YORK, December 15, 2014 – One of the nation’s foremost legal scholars in the field of civil procedure and a renowned commentator on the law and society, Arthur R. Miller, was recently honored for his dedication to the causes of justice and equality.

The Alliance for Justice hosted a special “Champions for Justice” benefit, which paid tribute to Miller, the associate dean and director of the NYU School of Professional Studies Tisch Institute for Sports Management, Media, and Business, on December 2 at the University Club of New York. Harry Carson, Hall of Fame linebacker for the New York Giants, acted as Master of Ceremonies.

Professor Miller also is a University Professor at New York University, where he currently teaches within the NYU School of Law, serves as director of Public Dialogues for the NYU School of Professional Studies, and is chairman and founder of NYU Sports and Society.

Professor Miller was presented with the Champion of Justice Award in recognition of his unwavering commitment to justice, fairness, and democracy, as well as for his ardent defense of the right of every American to have access to the courts. Proceeds benefited the Alliance’s work.

During the event, stirring tributes were made by NYU President John Sexton; Sir Harold Evans, former editor of the London Sunday Times; and Harold Koh, Yale Sterling professor of law, and former dean of Yale Law School. Both Sexton and Koh are former students of Professor Miller’s.

Professor Miller is the recipient of numerous awards, including eight honorary doctorates; two TV Emmys; three American Bar Association Gavel Awards; a Special Recognition Gavel Award for promoting public understanding of the law; dedicatee 67th volume of the New York University Annual Survey of American Law, which is dedicated to a preeminent jurist, scholar, or legal practitioner; and the prestigious Commander of the Order of the British Empire (2011) bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II in 2012.
