Terri Y. Montague is Attorney-Advisor, Office of General Counsel, Assisted Housing and Community Development at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
She graduated in 2014 with a joint degree in law and theological studies.
Montague was already an accomplished professional when she arrived at Emory. She was the first president and CEO of Atlanta’s $3 billion redevelopment effort, the BeltLine Project, from 2006 through 2009. 

While at Emory, Montague served as sustainability fellow in Emory’s Office of Sustainability Initiatives, and was an Executive Board member for Emory’s Black Law Students Association. She held public interest and transactional law internships and externships at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Region IV and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region IV. She completed a litigation clerkship at Savage, Turner, Pinckney & Madison. 

Concurrent with her law studies, Montague served on the board of Tapestry Development Group, an affordable housing development consulting organization, and on the board of Southern Environmental Law Center, a regional environmental legal advocacy organization.

“Rarely has a student entered our joint program with as much professional experience,” said Frank Alexander, CSLR’s founder. “Even more rarely has a joint degree student had such a transformative impact on the law school and the theological school communities.”
