Leslie Anne Miller (LL.M. 1994) is living proof of the idea that
having a law degree means having the freedom to do what you love, even
if that changes over time. During her career as a civil litigator and
mediator, Ms. Miller has been in private practice and public service.
She has been a leader in the profession, serving as the first female
president of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and a tireless champion
for women and the arts.
Currently a solo practitioner, Ms. Miller has been a leader in the profession
for decades. As General Counsel to the Pennsylvania Governor’s Office, she was
responsible for a staff of more than 450 attorneys. In this capacity, Ms. Miller
represented the Governor and 32 executive and independent agencies in civil,
transactional, regulatory, legislative, and criminal justice matters. She has
also served at the helm of the 27,000 member Pennsylvania Bar Association,
chairing its first Commission on Women in the Profession as well as its House of
Delegates and Young Lawyers Division.
Ms. Miller has also brought her considerable skills and energy to the arts,
where she serves as co-chair of the Kimmel Regional Performing Arts Center, and
to a variety of leading cultural and professional organizations. She sits on the
boards of the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Forum
of Executive Women, Pennsylvania Legal Services Corporation, and WHYY. She is
also a trustee of Temple Law School and Mount Holyoke College.
As a result of Ms. Miller’s ground-breaking leadership and dedication to her
community, she has been named to a select group of “Women Making History” by the
Greater Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Women Business
Owners and honored as a “Woman of Distinction” by the Philadelphia Business
Journal. She is also a past recipient of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Ann
X. Alpern Award and the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Sandra Day O’Connor
Award. These recognitions stand as testimony to the commitment, leadership, and
skill of Temple Law graduate Leslie Anne Miller, and as a beacon inspiring women
lawyers everywhere to do what they love no matter where it leads.
