Leadership gift helps establish new scholarship

Students in the School of Law to benefit from support in memory of highly-respected Professor.

A scholarship established by the University of Aberdeen in memory of one of the founding fathers of the law summer school has received a leadership gift from the University of Aberdeen Foundation based in the USA.

 

The David Carey Miller Scholarship will allow a student to take up a place on a one-year taught LLM masters degree at Aberdeen. Open to students from across the USA and Africa, the scholarship will fund academic fees, travel and accommodation.

 

Professor Carey Miller was an internationally-respected professor of property law, who taught at Aberdeen for over 45 years, and who died in 2016, aged 74. A former head of the Aberdeen School of Law, he served as the director of the annual Aberdeen Summer Programme in cooperation with the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland Francis Carey King School of Law.

 

Established in 1986, the programme explores comparative US and UK law and is taught by Scottish and US tutors.

 

Anne-Michelle Slater, co-director of the Aberdeen Summer Programme at Aberdeen School of Law, said “David was always interested in comparative law and promoting international links from the moment he arrived in Aberdeen. It is fitting that this merit-based scholarship celebrates and reflects the ideas, people and places that held a special place in his heart.”

 

As well as receiving the leadership gift from the University of Aberdeen Foundation, the current Head of the School of Law, Dr Greg Gordon, has also made a substantial personal donation in recognition of his friendship with and admiration for Professor Carey Miller.

 

Liz Bowie, Director of Development and Alumni Relations at the University of Aberdeen Development Trust, said “We hope that these wonderful donations from the University of Aberdeen Foundation and Dr Greg Gordon will inspire alumni and friends at home and overseas to support the David Carey Miller Scholarship. Our goal is also to offer a travel bursary for a US student to attend the summer programme to continue the long-standing links David fostered and enjoyed for many years.”
