Carolyn A. Dubay is the Executive Director of the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission. From 2012-2015, Carolyn served on the faculty of the Charlotte School of Law, where she taught constitutional law, judicial administration and comparative constitutional law. Prior to moving to Charlotte in 2012, Carolyn was a Visiting Scholar at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium. Most of Carolynís career, however, has centered on litigating in state and federal courts and working in the federal court system. After receiving her law degree, Carolyn served as a law clerk to the Honorable Joanna Seybert in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Following her federal judicial clerkship, Carolyn joined the law firm Hunton & Williams, working in both North Carolina and Virginia as a civil litigator appearing before federal and state trial and appellate courts. In 2005, she left private practice to work for the federal courts, where she worked for the Administrative Office of the United States Courts and the Federal Judicial Center. From 2007-2008, Carolyn also served as a Judicial Fellow at the Supreme Court of the United States, where she worked in the Office of the Counselor to the Chief Justice of the United States.
In addition to her service on the board of Justice Initiatives, Carolyn also serves on the Executive Committee of the Lawyers Conference of the ABA Judicial Division and is a member of the board of the Charlotte International Arbitration Society. She also served for several years on the National Advisory Council of the American Judicature Society and a contributor to the International Judicial Monitor.
Carolyn received her undergraduate degree in history from Duke University and her J.D. with honors from Fordham University School of Law, where she served as an editor of the Fordham Law Review. She also received a L.L.M. with distinction in international and comparative law from Georgetown University Law Center in 2010.
