Board of Directors Spotlight

Nicole Tyrell Lares

"As a student I was very involved in the GW Law community and wanted to find a way to continue my level of engagement upon my graduation. Now, I mentor and network with students and new graduates as well as maintain and create relationships with my fellow GW Law alumni. I fully recognize how GW Law has supported and encouraged me both in law school and in my career path, so it has always been my duty and pleasure to give back."
