Pamela Spanogle International Commercial Arbitration Award

This award, generously sponsored by Professor Andy Spanogle in memory of his wife, Pamela, is presented to the team representing GW at the Willem Vis International Commercial Arbitration Competition, which was held in Vienna, Austria. These students were selected due to their excellence in the Pamela Spanogle International Arbitration Competition, which is our premier, upper-level, in-house arbitration competition, and then represented GW Law at this year’s Vis East Moot in Vienna, Austria, alongside more than 130 teams from around the world. Each winner will receive a monetary award and an engraved plaque. Members of the winning team are John Antishin, Grace Sullivan, and Elizabeth Vincento.

Elizabeth attended University of Delaware, receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Mass Communications.
She was the notes editor for The Federal Circuit Bar Journal.

Favorite Memory from GW Law

I loved getting to study International Human Rights Law at Oxford University in England. This experience brought me some of my best friends, most valuable knowledge, and a deeper appreciation for the power of a law degree.


Favorite Quote

"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."

Mitch McConnell after silencing Elizabeth Warren from speaking out against Jeff Session's civil rights record on the Senate floor.

With Gratitude

A special thank you to my dad, Joe Vincento, who has never once doubted my ability to do whatever I can dream. Thank you for your endless love and support. I could not have done it without you.

To all my friends, I could not imagine this experience without each of you. You have all challenged me, laughed with me, and remain the very best thing I've gained from GW. Thank you endlessly.
