Meet Our New Author!

I’m really excited to announce that is gaining an author: Michael Castle-Miller!

Michael will be writing on law and development from a human rights perspective, which will include urban planning, relevant national and international cases, and more.

Anyone who knows Michael knows he’s a great fit for a this site; but in case you don’t know him, here’s his bio:

Michael Castle-Miller – Law and Development

Michael is a law student at American University’s Washington College of Law, where he’s trained in international human rights law at The Hague and assisted Dean Claudio Grossman – Chair of the UN Committee Against Torture – in editing a forthcoming casebook on the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

For the last year, Michael also worked as a research associate for the Public International Law & Policy Group, a pro bono law firm that provides legal assistance to states and governments with the negotiation and implementation of peace agreements, the drafting of post-conflict constitutions, and the creation and operation of war crimes tribunals.

He serves as senior staff on the American University Law Review, where his comment “Checking DHS: Constitutional and Subconstitutional Arguments for Why Noncitizens Facing Removal Can Obtain Judicial Review of their Naturalization Applications” will be published this fall.

Along with his JD, Michael is earning an MA in International Relations with a focus on International Development. Once a Sim City addict, he has learned to channel his energy into property law, urban development, and the way in which cities can increase and promote opportunity.

Michael currently interns for Hon. Royce C. Lamberth, Chief Judge of the US District Court for the District of Columbia.

  1. Sounds like a pretty smart young fellow. I’d like to meet him sometime and ask him a few questions. Are you absolutely sure that he actually exists and it won’t be you writing under his name.

      Though rarely seen in public due to having his head in his books, I can attest that he does exist and this is not false advertising.
