John Mills is a Principal Attorney at the Phillips Black Project, a non-profit public interest law practice, where he represents death-sentenced prisoners and persons sentenced to die in prison for crimes committed as juveniles and conducts research on the administration of those sentences. Prior to joining Phillips Black, Mills worked at the Habeas Corpus Resource Center where he represented death-sentenced prisoners and conducted impact litigation related to the administration of the death penalty.
Mills’ research interests are in the implementation of our nation’s harshest punishments and the Eighth Amendment. His work has been published in the American University Law Review, Georgetown’s American Criminal Law Review, and the Cornell Journal of International Law. He frequently comments on the administration of juvenile life without parole, and his work has received coverage from the Associated Press, the National Law Journal, and The Marshall Project, among others.
