The Harvard Law Review has elected Jonathan Gould ’16 as its 129th president. Gould succeeds Rachel Miller-Ziegler ’15.

“The Law Review is exceptionally fortunate to have Jon as its president,” said Miller-Ziegler. “Jon’s formidable intellect, infectious love for the law, and incomparable work ethic earned the deep respect of his peers, and his kindness and generosity have made him an admired member of the Law Review community. Jon will make an outstanding president, and I look forward to watching him lead the Review in the year ahead.”

Gould is a native of Newton, Massachusetts, and graduated from Harvard College in 2010 with an A.B. in Social Studies. In addition to his law studies, he is also pursuing a Ph.D. in government at Harvard.

“Rachel has been a phenomenal leader,” said Gould. “Her brilliant legal mind, natural leadership qualities, and tireless dedication to the Law Review have inspired all of us. The Law Review is a better journal and stronger community for her leadership. Together with all of our editors, I look forward to continuing the Law Review’s tradition of excellence in legal scholarship in the coming year.”

The Law Review, founded in 1887 by future Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, LL.B. 1887, is an entirely student-edited journal with the largest circulation of any law journal in the world. It is published monthly from November through June.
