Robert Miller Named Editor of Journal of Health Law

Adjunct Professor of Law Robert Miller has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Health Law. The Journal is published quarterly by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) and features articles focused on key health law issues. The Journal provides readers with a mix of articles and comments from practicing lawyers, law professors and students.

Beginning this year, the AHLA formed an editorial board to manage the editorial content of the Journal, consisting of five practicing health lawyers and three law professors. As Editor-in-Chief, Miller will chair the editorial board and advise the managing editor on content, in addition to doing a peer review of two or three submitted articles each year.

“Each issue of the Journal contains three to five articles that are relevant to the work of attorneys who practice in the areas of health and life sciences law,” Miller said. “The Journal may also include a note or comment on a current issue or recent case.”

Miller is well qualified for this position having practiced health law for many years and taught health law courses at Emory for seven years. He has also prepared numerous seminar papers and regularly reads the Journal of Health Law, Health Law Digest and BNA’s Health Law Reporter.

Miller graduated from The University of Georgia in 1964 (AB, History) and from Yale Law School in 1967 (LLB). He is a former president of the American Academy of Healthcare Attorneys, one of the two predecessor groups of the American Health Lawyers Association. He retired from King & Spalding at the end of 1997 and has taught health law courses at Emory since 2000. He is a member of the Boards of Directors of QuadraMed Corp., a hospital software company in Reston, Va., and Sonic Innovations, an advanced hearing aid company in Salt Lake City, Utah.
