TERRY L’80 BECOMES NEW LAS PRESIDENT
1 - 2
one of Tai Terry’s mantras: The more successful an alum’s
career, the more he or she owes to the alma mater that made such success
possible. This belief in reciprocity might explain why Terry’s own
career has been matched with her sustained commitment to Penn Law. Terry’s
new appointment as president of the Law Alumni Society reflects her longstanding
dedication to repaying the school that has made it possible for her to
become a corporate transactions lawyer.
And Terry certainly has successes to repay. As an assistant general counsel
of Time Warner Inc. in New York, she has been involved in many areas of
Time Warner’s legal practice, including mergers with Turner and
AOL. Currently, she concentrates on information technology and corporate
finance transactions and has helped to finance films such as “Eyes
Wide Shut,” the Batman movies and the Harry Potter series.
As part of her IT practice, Terry was appointed by the Secretary of Commerce
and the United States Trade Representative to the Department of Commerce’s
Advisory Committee on Electronic Commerce for Trade Policy Matters.
