Law Alumnus Takes Helm of Virginia Bar Association

Glenn C. Lewis (JD '77) will be sworn in as the 107th president of the Virginia Bar Association this weekend at the association's annual meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Lewis is the chairman and founder of The Lewis Law Firm based in Washington, D.C., and specializes in family law. As one of the nation's most sought-after divorce lawyers, he has tried cases in more than 25 states and the District of Columbia. 

A cum laude graduate and former adjunct professor, Lewis has been honored with the Mason Law Distinguished Alumnus Award for his service in private practice as well as to the law school. Last fall Governor Tim Kaine appointed Lewis to George Mason University's Board of Visitors. 

Lewis has a long history of involvement with the bar at the national, state and local levels. He is the first person ever to have served as president of both the Fairfax and Virginia Bar Associations.
