GW Law LLM Student Acquires Prominent Position at the Mayor’s Commission on African Affairs in D.C.

The George Washington University Law School (GW Law) has been renowned for producing the best legal minds since its establishment in 1865. This has once again demonstrated by one of its LLM students, Johanna LeBlanc, who was appointed to a prestigious post in Washington, D.C. while still in the middle of her LLM degree course at GW Law.

Johanna LeBlanc is from Haiti and holds a JD degree. She is currently enrolled at GW Law's LLM in National Security and U.S. Foreign Affairs Law, focusing in the areas of counter-terrorism, intelligence, and immigration. She was recently (15 September 2017) appointed by Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to a prominent position in the Mayor's Commission on African Affairs. She will be holding this appointment until 27 October 2019, the end of the term.

Ms. LeBlanc is just one of the many alumni of GW Law who has gone on to become a leader in the field of law. Those who are looking to pursue similar paths, or who simply want to gain advance legal knowledge through an LLM degree, may choose from a wide range of LLM programs offered at GW Law:

All LLM programs have two intakes: January and August. Applications for the January 2018 classes have passed. Applicants for the Fall intake may apply online through the LSAC.
