Law Review 25 Percent Female

hlr

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.

Open Letter to Law Review Regarding Escalating Constitutional Transgressions by the President

We strongly urge the Harvard Law Review to invite President Barack Obama, a former President of the Law Review, to participate in a symposium organized by you to answer the contemporary constitutional crisis precipitated by the concentration of power in the Office of the President of the United States irrespective of party affiliation. The danger of an omnipotent president is institutional, not personal. Each president betters the instruction of the unconstitutional abuses and usurpations of his predecessor. The Office of the President is no longer under the law, but is the law. A true patriot, Thomas Paine sermonized, saves his country from his government. Based on secret facts and secret law, the presidency assassinates American citizens on his say-so alone. Based on secret evidence, the presidency detains American citizens for life without accusation or trial. In the dark of night, the presidency employs extraordinary renditions to dispatch non-accused detainees to … Continue reading
