Harvard Law Review elects alumna president

By Sam Adams

Joanna Huey ’02 was named the 123rd President of the Harvard Law Review after a closed election last month. She follows in the steps of such luminaries as President Barack Obama.

“I hope to follow in the footsteps of last year’s editors,” Huey said. “The outgoing leadership team did a great job keeping our standards of scholarship high and creating a tight-knit community among editors.”

Huey, who graduated with undergraduate degrees from Harvard in physics and mathematics, is pursuing a joint degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.Her ultimate goal, Huey said, is to “work on law and policy related to science and technology” after obtaining her Juris Doctor and Master’s in Public Policy.

The Harvard Law Review is published monthly between November and June. Considered the most highly-regarded student edited journal in the nation, the Review has the highest circulation of any journal of its kind.
