Michael McKeon

"As a proud GW Law alumnus, I am grateful to serve on the Energy Law Advisory Council because it allows me to influence and enhance the programmatic capabilities of GW Law. Serving on the Council also comes with significant and pragmatic benefits; having access to valuable industry insight and faculty research gives me a unique perspective on current and future topics in energy."
