Government Contracts Advisory Council

Government Contracts Advisory Council allows the Government Procurement Law Program to draw upon the support, advice, and expertise of a wide range of leaders from throughout the public procurement and acquisition field.

Michael McKeon

"Located in our nation's capital, GW Law is positioned with unique resources that distinguish its exceptional Government Contracts Law Program. As a GW Law graduate, I had the benefit of learning from Professors Nash and Cibinic, the Deans of the Government Contracts bar. My meaningful relationship with GW Law continues to benefit my practice. We regularly hire GW graduates who are well prepared for our Government Contracts practice, and membership on the Government Contracts Advisory Board offers the opportunity to connect with leaders from the bench, industry, government, private practice and academia."
