About our Speaker:

As we continue our 2019 CPA series, our August 7 session will look into the laws affecting planning and  the role these laws play as communities grow. We are excited to welcome Stephen Miller as our speaker for this month.

Stephen R. Miller is associate dean for faculty development and professor of law at the University of Idaho College of Law in Boise. He is a nationally recognized expert on land-use law and sustainability. He is also a trained planner, a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and serves on the Amicus Curiae Committee of the American Planning Association. 

Stephen previously served on the Boise Planning & Zoning Commission and the board of the North End Neighborhood Association. He is also editor-in-chief of the American Bar Association’s Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law. 

Stephen received his undergraduate degree from Brown University, a master’s in city and regional planning from the University of California, Berkeley, and a J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of Law.
