David Falk (’75) David Falk graduated from GW Law School in 1975. Ever since, as a sports and entertainment attorney and chief executive of Falk Associates Management Enterprises, he perhaps has had more impact on the business of sports in the last 20 years than any other man.

GW students dance the hula with Hawaii club

Golf finishes in the middle of the pack

Sport Brief Rain forced the cancellation of the first round of this weekend’s 24-team two-round Princeton Invitational in Princeton, N.J., and GW likely finished in the middle of the pack, according to head coach Scott Allen.
