The upcoming acadmic year’s Law Review is 25 percent female, according to Law Review President Conor Tochilin, Law ’13 and Business ’13. This represents an 8 percent drop in female membership from the last academic year.
“As is true every year, this year’s writing competition was extremely competitive. We are disappointed that this year’s editor selection process produced a very low number of women editors despite our robust outreach efforts last spring, and we are currently investigating why this occurred.” Tochilin said, “This year, we plan to continue our women’s outreach efforts, and we strongly encourage incoming 1L women to reach out to current Law Review editors for more information and to take the writing competition in May.”
Tochilin also provided a chart containing the Law Review’s female membership since 2005.
