Michael Millemann, Jacob A. France Professor of Public Interest Law and Director of the Leadership, Ethics & Democracy Institute, was elected to the American Law Institute (ALI), the leading independent organization in the U.S. producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize and improve the law.
“Professor Millemann’s contribution to our profession is outstanding, particularly in the area of public interest law,” said Maryland Carey Law Dean Phoebe Haddon. “His election to the ALI is a well-deserved honor. I know I speak for the entire law school community in wishing him our heartiest congratulations.”
Professor Millemann is the twenty-second member of the UM Carey Law faculty to be elected to the ALI, one of the profession’s most prestigious bodies. ALI restatements of the law and model statutes are influential in the courts and legislatures as well as in legal scholarship and education.
Professor Millemann began his career at the Maryland Legal Aid Bureau and served as chief general counsel and chief of the Civil Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. A member of the Maryland Carey Law faculty since 1974, he has been chair of the Maryland State Bar Association’s (MSBA) Judicial Nominations Committee and a longtime board member and chair of MSBA’s Correctional Reform Section. He is an alumnus of Dartmouth College and earned his JD from Georgetown Law.
