Michael McKeon

"GW Law is building a robust Business and Finance program that capitalizes on expert faculty, an extensive curriculum, and close proximity to regulatory communities. The program is further enhanced by strong connections to New York, which provide students with valuable experiential opportunities. My education at GW Law had a major impact on my success as a lawyer in the financial services industry. I chair the Business and Finance Advisory Council in order to maintain access to the valuable resources that GW Law has to offer."
