GW Law Experiences

  • David Zvenyach
  • Nicole Tyrell
  • Andrew Beyda
  • Martha Wyrsch

Alum David Zvenyach, JD ’06, was named a 2015 Legal Rebel by the ABA Journal, which the publication defines as those “mavericks” who “are finding new ways to practice law, represent their clients, adjudicate cases, and train the next generation of lawyers.”

David Zvenyach, JD ’06

“I was really active in the life of the law school, and I loved how easy it was to get involved. That activity, along with the academic excellence, helped my GW Law experience fulfill me the way law school was meant to.”

Nicole Tyrell, JD ’14

“The small seminars were really fabulous. You delve into the law in such fine detail. And because the professors are practitioners and some of your classmates are LLM students who are in practice, you really get a view of the law in practice.”

Andrew Beyda, JD ’14

“Take advantage of the terrific team of professors and professionals available to you at GW Law to help you network and build relationships in the energy industry.”

Martha Wyrsch, JD ’86
