“The award was such a surprise and honor,” Miller says. “It's a great motivation to continue the trajectory of my current research.” 
Miller’s research highlights the importance of free speech rights and how they are applied to mass media. 
Miller, who has published recent articles on mass media – including in the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy and Cardozo Law Review – is currently working on a new paper about how the First Amendment might create duties for powerful private agents.
According to the Association of American Law Schools website, annual awards are hosted by several sections of the association and organized around various academic disciplines and topics of interest.
