Teresa Miller graduated from Harvard Law School in 1986. After teaching research and writing at the University of Miami School of Law for two years, Miller pursued a master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin Law School. Returning to Miami to clerk for Hon. William M. Hoeveler in the Southern District of Florida, Miller was involved in a wide variety of federal cases, including the criminal trial of Manuel Noriega. After practicing in Florida in the areas of securities litigation and accountant’s liability, Miller joined the SUNY Buffalo Law faculty in 1995.

Miller researches and writes about the growing use of immigration law to effect criminal law enforcement outcomes. She travels throughout New York State, evaluating conditions at state prisons on behalf of the Correctional Association of New York. As chair of the Law School’s Technology and Communications Committee, Miller has been at the forefront of applying digital video technology in the classroom. In 2008, she produced a 24-minute film, Encountering Attica, which tracked three law students who met with inmates serving life sentences at Attica State Prison. More recently, Miller produced and directed a 20-minute film, 4 Myths About Attica, for a conference she organized on the 40th anniversary of the Attica uprising.
