Professor Nadia Nedzel
Southern University Law Center
Nadia E. Nedzel, J.D., LL.M., professor of law emerita at SULC, has had a widely varied career. Fate led her to law school, and after graduating from Loyola Law (New Orleans), her career in law started with the honor of clerking for Judge Carl E. Stewart on the U.S. Fifth Circuit. She then returned to Northwestern for an LL.M. in international business law, after which she ran Tulane’s LL.M. and exchange programs for several years, practiced international trade, corporate compliance, and admiralty insurance defense for a bit in New Orleans, and then joined the faculty at SULC, where she taught Contracts, Obligations, Sale and Lease, and International law until 2021.
Although she has published on a number of topics, for the past decade, her research has been devoted to the comparative study of the rule of law and its connection with economic development. She has also written two books and a number of articles on the Rule of Law.
