Education
Graduate

Stanford began offering a curriculum in legal studies in 1893, when the university engaged its first two law professors. One was Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, who delivered a landmark series of lectures on the Constitution. The other was Nathan Abbott, who served as head of the nascent law program. Abbott assembled a small faculty to which he imparted a standard of rigor and excellence that endures to this day.In an effort to acknowledge the emerging professional nature of the department, Stanford's Board of Trustees passed a resolution in 1908 to substitute the term 'law school' for 'law department,' though technically the law program remained a department within the university.The law school was at the forefront of efforts to institute the California Bar exam, which was added to the requirements to practice law in California in 1919. The law school was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1923, the year the ABA began certifying law schools.

The name may be new, but the same philosophies and values behind Miller & Ngo’s success for over twenty years still remain. We are located in Old Oakland’s historic Dunn’s Building, which served as the western terminus hotel when the “golden spike” was driven to link Eastern and Western States by rail. Miller & Ngo became a part of an even greater link between Asia and the United States and the world. IPO Pang, PC (www.ipopang.com), headed by Fortune 500 attorney, Peter Pang, is our partner in China and Southeast Asia. Thomas R. Miller, a graduate of Yale University and Stanford Law School, founded Miller & Ngo in 1989. The firm engaged in general civil litigation, and Tom led his associates in the practice of personal injury law, business law, international law, immigration law, non-profit and family law, as well as others. Miller & Ngo launched several IPO’s and established limited partnerships in areas such as, food products, micro-brewing, manufacturing, book investments and computer software. The firm also engaged in book and software packaging and licensing with major publishers and computer hardware manufacturers, such as, Bantam, Microsoft, Dow Jones, Epson and Kyocera.
