Bradley Miller appointed Visiting Fellow at Princeton

B MillerWestern Law professor Bradley Miller has been appointed as the Ann and Herbert W. Vaughan Visiting Fellow in the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University for the 2012-13 academic year. Although Princeton faculty have, in recent years, visited Western Law to participate in Public Law and Legal Philosophy Research Group events, Miller’s appointment to the Madison program is a first for a Canadian legal scholar.

Miller’s research at Princeton will primarily engage with current constitutional and philosophical arguments for the legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide. This research is particularly timely, given the constitutional challenges to existing criminal prohibitions that are working their way through the BC and Quebec courts. Professor Miller appeared as counsel for an intervener in Carter v. Canada (AG), 2012 BCSC 886.
