Professor of Law Emeritus
Conflict of Laws
Professor Gary Milhollin served on the law faculty at the University of Wisconsin from 1976 to 1998, and now holds the title of Emeritus Professor. In 1985, Professor Milhollin founded the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, which carries out research and public education designed to halt the spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction. Through its research reports, articles and work with the press, the Project has influenced the export policies of major industrial nations. The Project publishes Iranwatch.org, a comprehensive web site that tracks Iran's ability to produce weapons of mass destruction. It also publishes the Risk Report Database, which U.S. federal agencies and some 35 foreign countries use to control the export of dangerous technologies.
Professor Milhollin has testified frequently before Congressional committees and has been quoted widely in the international press. His articles and testimony are concerned with topics such as the control of dangerous exports, U.S. policy toward Iran, and Chinese weapon transfers. A list of his publications and testimony can be found on the Wisconsin Project website.
While in his teaching position, Professor Milhollin gave courses on contracts, the conflict of laws, and nuclear arms proliferation. For over a decade he was also an Administrative Judge, part time, at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, where he presided over hearings following the accident at Three Mile Island. Before entering teaching, he practiced international corporate law in New York and Paris.
