Professor Doriane Coleman teaches Torts and courses on children and the law and genetics and the law. Read her faculty profile here.

1. Hometown, college, law school: Woodstock, NY, is my hometown. I graduated from Cornell University (undergrad) and the Georgetown University Law Center.

2. During my free time, I love to: I love to hang out on our new screened-in porch with a glass of wine, take a deep breath, and listen to the sounds of my life. These days, that usually means Alexander and Nico blasting Wale or Lupe Fiasco, or Jim actively engaging with Jon Stewart and then Stephen Colbert. They do come out to talk to me from time-to-time, and that's nice too:-)

3. One TV show I never miss: I never miss Modern Family.

4. My favorite law school memory: I don't have a favorite law school memory, but law school left me with a wonderful legacy: long-standing relationships with a couple of really special professors and friends, and a career that is nonpareil.

5. My favorite Durham restaurant or activity: My favorite Durham restaurant is Magnolia Grill; the food is amazing.

  • Community Enterprise Clinic handles legal details of shopping center transformation

    A forlorn, largely vacant shopping center on 10 acres of asphalt in central Durham seems like an unlikely place for innovation. But Ann Woodward, executive director of the nonprofit Scrap Exchange, imagines transforming this site into a creative reuse arts district (the “RAD”).  This district, an inventive mix of nonprofits, cooperatives and for-profit companies, would not only ensure that the Lakewood Shopping Center becomes a profitable asset, but would also be the catalyst for the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
