On the cusp of celebrating 35 years as a professor at the Pepperdine School of Law, Anthony Miller welcomed the third edition of his casebook Family Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems (Lexis).
Co-authored with Peter M. Swisher, University of Richmond School of Law, and Helene Shapo, Northwestern School of Law, this latest edition underwent thorough revisions, hitting the latest issues at the forefront of family law, including same-sex marriage, children's rights, and divorce.
Also included are several case scenarios for students to work on.
"I am proud of the outcome," Miller noted. "It is something we've taken a lot of time to develop so that we can better serve the law community and especially the students."
Miller began his tenure at Pepperdine in 1977. He has taught Torts, Remedies, Constitutional Law- Individual Rights, Family Law, Community Property, Domestic Relations Dispute Resolution, Labor Law, Public Sector Labor Law, International Commercial Arbitration, and Arbitration Practice.
Miller has served as a dispute resolution neutral in both of his areas of interest: divorce mediator and as a labor arbitrator. He is currently on the panel of arbitrators of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, and is a member of the City of Los Angeles Employee Relations Board.
He has also held the roles of associate dean of the law school and the interim director of Pepperdine University's London Program. He has taught several dispute resolution courses at Jones School of Law and Community Property as a visiting professor at UCLA.
