Professor Muir is a nationally recognized expert on fiduciary and remedial issues especially in the fields of investments, pension plan funding, plan investment selection and investment policies, and investment advice. She is a passionate supporter of Ross School research showing that business can play a positive role in society and the way law supports business in playing that role. Her research reaches extensively into her peer academic community (both domestically and internationally), the legal community at-large, as well as the legislative, judicial and executive branches of the U.S. government. Her work has been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts. Professor Muir was the Editor-in-Chief of the annual supplements to Employee Benefits Law, the treatise for the employee benefits field and is a Fellow of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel as well as a member of the College's Board of Governors.

She served at PBGC during the implementation of one investment policy and the subsequent review of that policy. She spent her sabbatical in 2000 as a Congressional Fellow in the office of Representative (Rep.) Robert Portman (currently Senator Portman).

Professor Muir holds an Arthur F. Thurnau Professorship at the University of Michigan in recognition of undergraduate teaching excellence. She was a member of the Advisory Board of the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching.
