Favorite Memory from GW Law

There are too many to name just one! Some of my favorites were the 2020 GW Law Israel Trip, Lawlloween 2018 tort care bear crew, Van Vleck 2019 with the one and only Kirsten Wolfford, Founding Farmers finals brunch traditions, LRW with Bonnie's B's, and too many late night study sessions in the hard lounge to count.


Favorite Quote

"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious . . . and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney

With Gratitude

Thank you to the many professors, friends, and family members who helped me get to this point. A special thanks to Dean Emily Hammond, Dean Alan Morrison, Dean David Johnson, Professor Aram Gavoor, Professor Charles Tyler, Professor Brad Clark, Professor Laird Kirkpatrick, Professor Peter Smith, and Andra Chernack. None of my accomplishments over the past three years would have been possible without my parents, Lisa and Rich Orlov. I am eternally grateful for their support, encouragement, and confidence in me. Additional thanks to my brothers, Danny and Scott, and grandparents Eileen, Miriam, and Harvey. Finally, thank you to my friends and the amazing student community at GW Law. The best part of law school was the amazing friendships I made along the way.
