Michael McKeon

"GW Law's Intellectual Property Law Program has consistently been recognized for its strong faculty, innovative research, and experiential opportunities. These resources enabled me to receive an outstanding education during my time as a student. Serving on the Intellectual Property Advisory Board reconnects me with these valuable resources and provides meaningful relationships with IP thought-leaders in government, academia, and industry."
