Shepherd Appointed Reporter for Revising Georgia Corporation Code
Emory Law Professor George Shepherd was appointed by the State Bar of Georgia to be the reporter for the 20th anniversary revision of the Georgia Business Corporation Code. The code is Georgia’s comprehensive statute for corporations.
An expert on business law, Professor Shepherd will guide and assist the various working groups and subcommittees of the Business Law Section's Corporate Code Committee. The process will take two years, with legislation expected to be introduced in the General Assembly in early 2011.
Emory Law Professor William J. Carney served as the reporter during the Code’s last major revision 20 years ago.
