Emily Miller has loved the inherent challenges in the law since her first week of law school.
“The number of issues you can see in the law is just limitless,” Emily said. “I really enjoy the challenge of being faced with a new set of issues or a problem and figuring that out.”
In 2020, she spent two weeks as a winter judicial intern at the Missouri Supreme Court for Judge Paul C. Wilson. She returned to the high court in summer 2020 as a judicial extern for Judge Laura Denvir Smith.
At the University of Missouri School of Law, she was an associate managing editor of the Missouri Law Review. She’s also served as a teaching assistant to Professor Amy Schmitz, as a teaching fellow tutoring 2L students in constitutional law, and as a research assistant for the law school’s veterans clinic.
As a 2L student, she was a research assistant to Dean and Judge C.A. Leedy Professor of Law Lyrissa Lidsky’s work on the media law casebook that Lidsky co-authored with the Dean Emeritus Robert C. Post. Emily researched current defamation tort law in various states.
After graduation, Emily returns to the Missouri Supreme Court to serve as a judicial clerk for Judge Mary R. Russell. Emily would like to thank Judge Russell for her support.
