Presiding Judge M. Yvette Miller’s Portrait Unveiled at Mercer Law School

Macon, April 12, 2019.

Georgia Court of Appeals Presiding Judge M. Yvette Miller was honored with the unveiling of her portrait today at Mercer University School of Law’s Law Day celebration today. Presiding Judge Miller, the court’s first African American woman chief judge on the Court, is a graduate of Mercer Law, where she has endowed a scholarship to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

“This is a fitting honor for a distinguished jurist and dedicated public servant. I am proud to call Presiding Judge M. Yvette Miller my colleague and friend,” said Court of Appeals Chief Judge Stephen Louis A. Dillard.

Presiding Judge Miller’s portrait was commissioned by the Black Law Student Association Council at Mercer, along with the portrait of Judge Louis Sands, a Senior U.S. District Court Judge for the Middle District of Georgia. Judge Sands is also a Mercer Law graduate.
