Elizabeth Miller
Professor of Law

Professor Miller is a nationally recognized expert on the law of limited liability companies and limited liability partnerships, two very popular, but relatively new, forms of unincorporated business entities. Lawyers nationwide rely on the case law updates she prepares for American Bar Association publications and programs, and she frequently speaks on topics involving corporate, partnership and limited liability company law at continuing legal education programs.

Professor Miller has been involved in the drafting of legislation affecting Texas business organizations for many years and has served in an advisory or membership capacity on the drafting committees for numerous prototype, model, and uniform statutes and agreements relating to unincorporated business organizations. She currently serves on the Editorial Board of the LLCs, Partnerships and Unincorporated Entities Committee of the ABA Business Law Section, as well as the Editorial Board of the Revised Prototype Limited Liability Company Act subcommittee, and she was among the principal drafters of the ABA's Prototype Limited Liability Partnership Act and Prototype Limited Liability Partnership Agreement. Professor Miller was recently appointed to serve on the Editorial Board of the Business Lawyer-the ABA Business Law Section's premier publication. She is the co-author of a three-volume treatise on Texas business organizations law published by Thomson/West (Vols. 19, 20 and 20A, Business Organizations, Texas Practice Series) as well as a one-volume handbook on Texas business organizations (Vol. 13, Texas Methods of Practice, Texas Practice Series).

Professor Miller has held leadership positions in the Business Law Section of the State Bar of Texas as well as the American Bar Association Business Law Section. She has served as Chair of the LLCs, Partnerships and Unincorporated Entities Committee of the ABA Business Law Section as well as Chair of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of Texas and Chair of the Texas Partnership and Limited Liability Company Law Committee. She received the 2011 Jean Allard "Glass Cutter" Award presented by the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association. Professor Miller is an elected member of the American Law Institute, the American Bar Foundation, and the Texas Bar Foundation.

Professor Miller was in private practice for six years before she returned to Baylor Law School to join the faculty in 1991. While in practice, she represented banks and bank holding companies, as well as other privately and publicly held companies, in a variety of matters, including formations, reorganizations and acquisitions. She received her J.D. from Baylor Law School with highest honors and was first in her graduating class. Upon graduation, she received the highest score in the State of Texas on the July 1985 bar examination. While at Baylor Law School, she was Editor in Chief of the Baylor Law Review and the recipient of numerous academic awards. She received her B.A. from Baylor University in 1982, summa cum laude.
