Congratulations, 2016 Law Grads!

After August 1, 2016, your student GWorld card will be deactivated and your GW Law status changes to "Law Alumni."

You are encouraged to obtain a 
GWorld Alumni card.  Your entry into the Library will be quick and easy, through the turnstiles, as you did as a law student.

If you don't have a GWorld alumni card, you can continue to use the Library, however, you will be asked to stop at the reference desk to confirm your alumni status.

2016 GW Law grads may obtain a GW law alumni association card from:
Dean's Office: E214

Phone: 202.994.6288

GWorld Alumni cards are available from the GWorld Card Office in the Marvin Center ( (Marvin Center, Ground Floor, 800 21st Street, NW).

GW Law Alumni website provides information about alumni benefits and services.
