Congratulations to Khalid Alyafi, LL.M. Class of 2014, who was selected as the first recipient of the Mayer Award, named in honor of retiring Assistant Dean Dory Mayer. This year, Georgetown Law created this award in recognition of the years of service that Dory Mayer devoted to our international LLM students. The criteria for selection are academic achievement and the potential for contribution to the legal profession and to the individual’s community. The award is made annually to one foreign-trained LL.M. student in the graduating class, who will receive a plaque memorializing the award.
