Emory Law Names Interim Director of Transactional Law Center

Emory Law has named Carol D. Newman the interim executive director of its Center for Transactional Law and Practice and a visiting professor in the practice of law, effective June 1.

She has been an adjunct faculty member at Emory Law and has taught the Deal Skills course each semester that it has been offered. This appointment demonstrates Emory Law's determination to continue to support the nationally recognized transactional law program begun by her predecessor, Tina Stark.

“I am truly excited to join Emory Law’s nationally recognized transactional law program begun by my predecessor, Tina Stark,” Newman says. “This year, we are working to develop additional opportunities for our students and the Bar to interact in the context of transactional issues and topics.”

Newman is a retired partner from Powell Goldstein LLP, where she also served as the firm's director of corporate/transactional training and chair of the Corporate Training Committee. In her practice, Newman focused on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate and business law. At Powell Goldstein, she developed transactional skills simulation programs and corporate training seminars for associates. She was of counsel with Bryan Cave LLP.

Newman serves as co-chair of the Business Law Education Committee of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association. She also is an adjunct professor of practice at Washington and Lee University School of Law, where she teaches in the transactional skills immersion program and serves on the Third Year Advisory Board.

Newman received her JD from Duke University School of Law and a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received her bachelor's degree, with honors, from Sweet Briar College.
