In the analysis, Maine ranked 10th overall (second for quality of life, 13th for health care services, and 44th for economic environment). Zillman is quoted as encouraging retired veterans to get out amongst non-veteran communities and to discuss the real life stories of the U.S. armed forces with a variety of civilian organizations.
Professor Zillman has 16 years of active and reserve service in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps. He also has served as Distinguished Visiting Professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Professor Zillman previously served as Dean of the University of Maine School of Law, from 1991 to 1998, and more recently as President of the University of Maine at Presque Isle. He specializes in energy law and military law and has written over 50 law review articles and been author or editor on 12 books in those areas. At Maine Law, he also has also taught Property, Constitutional Law, Torts, and Legal Writing.
He was the lead editor and a contributing author to The Law of Energy Underground: Understanding New Developments in Subsurface Production, Transmission and Storage. The book was published this spring by Oxford University Press, the world’s leading academic publisher. It examines the laws and environmental impacts related to ‘fracking’ for oil and gas, storage of nuclear waste, and other pressing energy questions of our time.
