ATLANTA (AP) - A retired Emory University law school professor and his wife have created a $1 million challenge grant for the law school.

The university says the gift from William J. Carney and his wife, Jane, will allow the school’s Center for Transactional Law and Practice to hire an assistant director and to improve its experiential programs and academic offerings.

Once the school has raised $1 million in matching funds, it plans to establish the William and Jane Carney Chair of Transactional Law and Practice, which will be held by the center’s executive director.

Emory says the gift is one of the largest name gifts a professor has given to the university.

Carney, who retired in 2012, led the committee that developed the transactional law center and hired its first director.
