Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband and first-ever second gentleman, Doug Emhoff will join the faculty at Georgetown Law. Emhoff is a business lawyer and took a leave of absence from his job at powerhouse law firm DLA Piper to focus on the campaign trail for Biden and wife, Harris.
“I am delighted that Douglas Emhoff will be joining our faculty,” said Georgetown Law Dean William M. Treanor. “Doug is one of the nation’s leading intellectual property and business litigators, and he has a strong commitment to social justice. I know our students will greatly benefit from his experience and insight, and I am eagerly looking forward to his arrival.”
Vice President Kamala Harris and Douglas Emhoff have been married since 2014, when she was serving as California’s attorney general. She became a U.S. senator for California in 2017. Emhoff has many years and expertise in media and entertainment with clients like makers of the movie “American Made” and National Football League wide receiver Willie Gault.
