Colin Miller, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law, has been promoted to associate dean for faculty development, effective July 1. Miller replaces Lisa Eichhorn, who served in the position since 2012 and will return to teaching.
“Colin’s personality and natural interest in helping colleagues makes him a perfect fit to lead our faculty development efforts. He also brings to the position an important understanding of how technology can be used positively to improve our work as faculty,” said Rob Wilcox, dean of the School of Law.
Miller already has a list of goals ready to implement, including continuing Eichhorn’s efforts to maintain interdepartmental communication and feedback, as well as promoting faculty through the use of social media and other nontraditional platforms, such as blogs, online review supplements, and amicus briefs.
Miller joined the School of Law in July of 2012 and teaches courses on evidence, criminal law and criminal adjudication. He is also the creator and editor of Evidence Prof Blog, which addresses recent developments in evidence precedent, legislation, and scholarship. His blog was recently named one of the top 50 most widely read blogs edited by a law professor. Previously, he served as a professor at The John Marshall Law School. Miller is a graduate of the William and Mary Law School, where he served on the “William and Mary Law Review” and the “William and Mary Bill of Rights Journal.”
