Harvard Crimson, Law Review Elects First Ever Majority Female Class:
The Harvard Law Review selected more female editors than male editors to join the prestigious journal’s ranks this summer, welcoming a majority-female class for the first time in the publication’s history.
The editorial class, chosen after a rigorous competition tested the skills of prospective first-year law students, consists of 24 women and 22 men.
ImeIme A. Umana ’14, the president of the Law Review, wrote in an email that the publication made efforts this year to reach as many first-year Law students as possible during their recruiting process, hosting panels and casual coffee chats with current editors. “These efforts, we hoped, demystified the competition and encouraged students not to count themselves out of joining the journal,” Umana wrote.
