MARSHALL - BRENNAN AT 20: Alumni Share Project's Lasting Impact

April 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, a program that has made a major impact on the lives and careers of those who have participated in it.

Founded in 1999 by American University Washington College of Law Professors Rep. Jamie Raskin and Stephen Wermiel, the program offers talented upper-level law students the unique opportunity to teach courses on constitutional law and juvenile justice in public high schools, primarily in underserved urban areas. This push for constitutional literacy is rooted in the belief that teaching young people their rights as citizens and other fundamental constitutional principles will result in a more engaged and empowered citizenry.

UPCOMING WEBINAR: Careers in Hotel Law
This Thursday, March 21, join Matthew Pascocello from AUWCL’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Adjunct Professor and Director of Hotel Law & Commercial Transactions at AU Law School Steve Shapiro, and Carl Hurwitz, VP & AGC at Marriott for a glimpse into the economic models of hotel operations, franchising, management agreements, and cybersecurity. Register here: http://bit.ly/2UHg7DJ

While Marriott has more than 6,700 properties across 130 countries, it owns fewer than 20 of the hotels. This same model is true for the other titans of the industry, names like Hyatt, Hilton, and Choice. So who owns the hotels, who operates the hotels, and what are the laws and agreements that govern the industry? This month's WCL Alumni Webinar offers a glimpse into the economic models of hotel operations, plus a look at the role of lawyers in franchising, management agreements, and cybersecurity. It will also explore non-traditional careers in the hospitality industry, including hotel development and asset management.

Burwell, the university's 15th president and the first woman to serve in the role, while Dean Camille Nelson is the fifth female and first Black dean to lead AUWCL. #ChampionWhatMatters
