W&L Law School Announces Appointments in Student Affairs, Admissions

Nora V. Demleitner, dean of Washington and Lee University’s School of Law, has announced two administrative appointments at the school.

Brett Twitty, W&L Law’s director of admissions, has been named assistant dean for student affairs. Shawn McShay joins the school as assistant dean for admissions. Both appointments took effect July 1.

“Brett Twitty’s deep commitment to the law school and its students will make him an outstanding dean of students affairs, as he brings energy and initiative to that office,” Demleitner said. “Shawn McShay’s long-standing experience in admissions and strong vision for the office will allow us to recruit ever more talented applicants from around the country and the world.  I could not be more excited to have the two of them join my senior team.”

Twitty is a 2006 graduate of W&L Law where he served as president of the Student Bar Association. Following law school, he practiced in the real estate area and also assisted W&L as a regional recruiter. In 2007, Twitty returned to W&L as assistant director of admissions and was appointed director in 2010.

In addition to his J.D. from W&L, Twitty received a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

McShay joins W&L from Hofstra University Law School, where he was senior director of enrollment management. Prior to that, he was assistant director of admissions at the Fordham University Law School, and before that was in the Admissions Office at the George Washington University Law School.

McShay holds a B.S. and M.B.A. from West Virginia Wesleyan College.
