Adjunct Professors Honored for Years of Service


Interim Dean Gregory Maggs presents Larry Gordon with an award for teaching more than 25 years at GW Law. Gordon is one of two adjunct professors who have served for 25 years or more.

June, 2013 – George Washington University Law School honored 60 professorial lecturers in law for their service in teaching for five years or more.

“The adjunct faculty members who serve at GW Law enhance both the volume and the diversity of our course offerings,” said Senior Associate Dean Christopher Bracey. “Employers routinely thank us for giving our students a much needed perspective on the practice of law that allows them to be effective practitioners upon arrival in the work place. The contributions these professors make are absolutely essential in this regard.”

With more than 250 lawyers, judges, and government officials comprising our adjunct faculty, GW Law values the assets these professors bring to the law school and the student body.

Interim Dean Gregory E. Maggs presented certificates of accomplishment to the honorees.
