Paul B. Miller is Professor of Law at Notre Dame Law School. A graduate of Cambridge University (M.Phil.) and the University of Toronto (M.A., J.D., & Ph.D.), Miller is a private law theorist whose work focuses on philosophical questions in equity, fiduciary law, trust law, and corporate law.

Before joining NDLS, Miller taught at McGill University and Queen’s University and served as a law clerk to the Hon. Justice Ian Binnie of the Supreme Court of Canada.

Miller is a co-founder and co-organizer of two academic conferences in his fields - the annual North American Workshop on Private Law Theory, and the annual Fiduciary Law Workshop.  He is also routinely involved in the organization of colloquia, workshops, and conferences at Notre Dame and elsewhere.

With Andrew Gold, Miller is editor of Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law (Oxford University Press, 2014) and Contract, Status, and Fiduciary Law (Oxford University Press, 2016). With Evan Criddle, Andrew Gold, Arthur Laby and Gordon Smith, he is authoring a casebook - Fiduciary Law: Cases and Materials – for Aspen Publishers. The casebook will be the first of its kind to present fiduciary law as an integrated field of study. Miller is also currently editing, with Evan Criddle and Robert Sitkoff, The Oxford Handbook of Fiduciary Law.
