Paul Miller joined the Faculty of Law of McGill University in 2013. In the 2013-2014 academic year, he will be teaching Business Associations (BUS2 365) and a seminar on philosophical issues in private law, Private Law Theory (LAWG 539).

Professor Miller’s research interests include the philosophy of private law, fiduciary law, business law and trusts.

He has presented his work at several conferences and workshops, including the Obligations VI Conference at Western University, the Private Law Theory Workshop at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and the Fiduciary Law Workshop at Notre Dame Law School.

Professor Miller’s scholarship has been published in journals including the University of Toronto Law Journal, McGill Law Journal, Osgoode Hall Law Journal, and Queen’s Law Journal. With Andrew Gold, he is editor of the forthcoming volume Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law (Oxford University Press).

Before joining McGill in 2013, Professor Miller was Assistant Professor of Law at Queen’s University and served as a law clerk to the Hon. Justice Ian Binnie of the Supreme Court of Canada.

Professor Miller’s doctoral thesis, titled Essays Toward a Theory of Fiduciary Law, examined the philosophy of private law. It was supervised by Arthur Ripstein of the University of Toronto, and supported by a doctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Professor Miller is pleased to supervise graduate and postdoctoral students working on topics in the philosophy of private law, fiduciary law, business law or trusts, and related fields.
