In law school, she was Editor-in-Chief of the Arizona State Law Journal. As a professor, she became the faculty advisor for the Journal and mentored subsequent EICs. She is now an Article Editor of the Journal of Appellate Practice and Process, a faculty-edited law review that has used ALWD Guide citation format since 2000. Carolyn is also a sought-after consultant who frequently teaches continuing legal education courses for those in the larger legal community, including lawyers in the Air Force, court staff, and law review editors.

    Before joining academia, Carolyn spent eight years in big firm practice where she litigated a range of complex commercial and land use matters, including cases involving condemnation, data breach class actions, complex judgment collections, and shareholder disputes at the state and federal levels. Super Lawyers named her a Rising Star in 2016, an honor bestowed on no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in Arizona.
