Laurie T. Baulig joined Franklin & Marshall in 2008 as a faculty member in business, organizations and society, as well as women and gender studies, and was named director of CLAS in 2009. She holds an undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Florida as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and is an honors graduate of the University of Florida College of Law. Baulig spent more than 20 years in Washington, D.C., counseling clients on complex legal and public policy matters, achieving a breadth of experience that few lawyers can claim. She has served as an advocate before all three branches of government; she co-chaired a successful business coalition in Washington; and she participated as a member of senior management in two leading business trade associations. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar, the District of Columbia Bar, the Florida Bar, the Bar of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court. Eloquent about how her liberal arts education informed her own professional life, Baulig brings firsthand exposure to the intersection of the liberal arts and society to CLAS.
