A Nigerian lady, Imelme Umana, has emerged President of the Harvard Law Review, becoming the first black woman to hold the position.
She also equals the record of President Barack Obama, who, at the age of 28, became the first black president in the Havard Law Review’s 130-year history.
Law reviews which are edited by students, provide a chance for students to improve their legal research and writing. They also offer judges and scholars a forum for new legal arguments.
President of the Harvard Law Review is the highest student position at Harvard Law School.
Umana is a doctorate candidate at the Harvard Law School. She is most interested in the intersection between government and African American studies by exploring how stereotypes of black women are reproduced and reinforced in American Political discourse.
