Professor Jack Miller served as the dean of the College of Law from 1995 to 2002. He is an accomplished tax scholar who has authored more than a dozen law review articles. He is the co-author of a casebook, The Fundamentals of Federal Taxation. He holds law degrees from the University of Kentucky and the University of Florida. He has taught at six law schools including, the College of William & Mary, the University of Florida, and the University of Western Australia.
At the University of Idaho, he has received many awards for his teaching. His service to the legal profession and to legal education is wide-ranging and has included long-term service as an inspector for the American Bar Association's Accreditation Committee.
Professor Miller's service affiliations have also included the Law School Admission Council, the American Law Deans' Association, the Idaho Law Foundation, and the American Inns of Court.
During Professor Miller's term as dean, the law school pioneered the use of interactive video courses as part of its curriculum and established its reputation for the advanced use of technology. He also oversaw the renovation of a substantial portion of the Menard Law Building.
Thanks in part to his efforts, the law school has experienced a dramatic increase in private giving over the past several years. This has led to the establishment of many new endowments for scholarships, lectureships, and professorships.
