Eliza Buergenthal
Executive Vice PresidentHometown: Baltimore, Maryland
I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland, and pursued my undergraduate education at Syracuse University. My decision to attend GW Law was partially fueled by my love for Washington, D.C., and I look forward to pursuing my career in the District post-graduation. I began my involvement at GW Law in JLSA as a 1L representative, as well as a 1L rep for the GW Law chapter of the American Constitution Society, and If/When/How. Additionally, I am a staff member of the Public Contract Law Journal. I look forward to my role as the Executive Vice President of JLSA to enhance the Jewish community at GW Law!
