The Financial Aid and LRAP team brings over 100 years of Georgetown Law experience to its mission of serving the students and alumni at the highest level.  Below are selected bios for our team.

Assistant Dean for Financial Aid

Dean Pruett joined Georgetown Law in 1997. His interest in overall financial wellness for our students led to the creation of the first financial coaching curriculum for law students, Life after Georgetown Law which he jointly implemented with his co-creator, Ruth Lammert-Reeves in 1999. Georgetown Law remains one of the few law schools in the nation to provide in-depth assistance to its students so that the concepts of debt are intertwined with the post-graduation pathways of a successful life.
