VLS VP also named chair of LSAC’s Emerging Markets and Innovation Committee.
Vermont Law School’s (VLS) John Miller has been appointed to the board of trustees of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), the not-for-profit organization that, together with its member schools, is committed to advancing law and justice by encouraging diverse and talented individuals to study law and by supporting their enrollment and learning journeys from prelaw to practice.
Miller, VLS’s vice president for enrollment management, marketing and communications and an adjunct law professor, has also been tapped to chair LSAC’s Emerging Markets and Innovation Committee (EMI).
“We are delighted to welcome John Miller to LSAC’s Board of Trustees,” said Yusuf Abdul-Kareem, LSAC’s vice president of emerging markets. “John is a long-time volunteer with LSAC’s committees. We look forward to John bringing his passion for innovation to the Emerging Markets and Innovation Committee.”
As a member of the board and committee chair, Miller will help LSAC realize its vision of a just and prosperous world where all may thrive.
“I am honored to have received this appointment and to lead EMI,” said Miller. “We are at a critical point in history where the rule of law has become crucial to American democracy and as the world responds to a global pandemic. A legal and legal-related education has never been more compelling and access to a legal education from disadvantaged communities has never been more important. I look forward to working with LSAC to harness this momentum and innovate on its delivery.”
Miller has worked in law school admissions since 2009, when he began as the associate director of admissions at VLS. He has served on various committees for the Association of American Law Schools, the Law School Admission Council, and the National Association for Graduate Enrollment Management.
Miller is an adjunct faculty member within the Center for Justice Reform at VLS. He teaches both online and on-campus courses to law and master’s degree students. He is an active volunteer at the Vermont Department of Corrections and the Montpelier Community Justice Center and serves as the president of the board of directors at the North Country Animal League, a limited-access animal shelter.
He obtained an associate’s degree in criminal justice from Hudson Valley Community College, a bachelor’s degree in law and society from The Sage Colleges, and a juris doctor from VLS.
