London Olympics Lawyer to Deliver Law School Graduation Address

Terry Miller, a 1977 School of Law graduate, was the top legal counsel and responsible for all legal aspects of the London Olympics.

Terry Miller, a 1977 School of Law graduate, who was responsible for all legal aspects of the London Olympics, will deliver the commencement address at the University of Dayton School of Law graduation next spring.

She led the legal team responsible for all legal aspects of the Olympics' operations, including how to meet the terms of the Host City Contract with the International Olympic Committee, implementation of sponsorship and supply contracts and protection of the London 2012 brand.

Before joining the London Olympics in 2006, when Legal Week selected her as General Counsel of the Year, Miller spent 17 years at Goldman Sachs, where she served as international general counsel of Goldman Sachs International. She began her career with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, where she was a branch chief in the enforcement division.

"We are very pleased Terry will deliver our 2013 commencement address," said Paul McGreal, School of Law dean. " We look forward to Terry sharing her knowledge and experience, especially from the Olympics, with our students."

The School of Law gave the Distinguished Alumni Award to Miller in 2011 for reflecting the school's values of professional integrity and community service through achievements of exceptional merit, honor and influence.

The School of Law's commencement ceremony will take place May 4, 2013, at University of Dayton Arena.
