Dean's Advisory Council

The Dean's Advisory Council consists of leaders within many constituencies of the Washington College of Law, including the areas of law, academia, business and the community. Council members are some of the foremost advocates of the law school, and are motivated by a shared commitment to its continued success. They play critical roles in shaping the programs, initiatives, development and focus of WCL.

The Council convenes semi-annually to review on-going and future projects, to exchange ideas and to provide a breadth of advice based on the broad expertise of the members.
