Background & Education

Glenn began his law career over 30 years ago in Maryland, where he started a law firm before moving into a representative position on Capitol Hill. There, he worked for Congressman John Conyers, Jr. He then returned to practicing law in 1989, when he served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office. It was here in Washington, D.C., under Attorney General Eric Holder, that Glenn began handling criminal jury trials, appeals, and grand jury investigations. Recognizing his love for the intersection of law and policy, Glenn returned to Capitol Hill, serving as counsel to three different politicians during the years of 1994-1998. During this time, Glenn was appointed by Governor Parris Glendening as Chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission. Soon after, in 2002, Glenn was elected State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County, where he enjoyed serving the county for the next eight years.

Glenn graduated with honors from both Princeton University and Harvard Law School. However, his passion for legal education does not end at his own—Glenn also enjoys teaching law students in his free time. He has taught trial advocacy as a professor at Harvard Law School and as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland Law School for 19 years. He maintains faculty status at Harvard Law School’s Trial Advocacy Workshop.
