Dean Grossman recently visited Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP whose largest office is in Washington, D.C. The firm employs more than 20 AUWCL graduates with 15 of them meeting with Dean Grossman and other representatives from the law school for breakfast earlier today. Also in attendance was Lauren Marsh, attorney recruiting & development manager for the firm’s DC office.

The event was hosted by alumnus and Partner John Jacob ’93. John commenced the occasion by sharing his involvement with the law school as an advocate, campaign supporter, and member of the Dean’s Advisory Council. John also mentioned how Dean Grossman ushered the law school’s move to its Spring Valley current location during his time as a student. “But now we need a game changer!” said Dean Grossman.

The Dean went on to speak on the important issues of jobs, rankings, and the move to the Tenley Campus. During the talk, alumni asked many questions including, “what strides is the law school making outside of International Law” and “what is the law school doing to improve ranking.” The Dean responded by touching on the expansion of the Business Law, Environmental Law and renowned Intellectual Property programs to name a few, the increases in merit-based aid to recruit top students, the introduction of the Dean’s List which provides additional scholarship support to retain the top 10% of students, and the move to the Tenley Campus. When asked how the school will use the new campus to leverage resources, Dean Grossman responded, “We need all of you—your ideas, your time and your help to make this all possible. We need your help to hit the ground running."
