Zachary Schauf ’11 was elected the 124th president of the Harvard Law Review on January 30. He succeeds Joanna Huey ’10.

“Zach will be an outstanding president for the Law Review,” said Huey.  “His insight, dedication, and thoughtfulness have earned the deep respect of our editors, and I am certain that he will be both a superb leader and a brilliant contributor to the pieces we publish. I look forward to the great year ahead.”

Schauf graduated from Stanford University, where he completed a B.A.S. in History and Mathematics in 2004. He then studied for an M.Phil. in Modern Middle Eastern Studies at Oxford University and worked as a writer and editor in Washington, D.C., before starting law school.

“Joanna has been an inspired leader,” Schauf said. “She and her class, through their dedication, talent, and passion, have done so much to advance legal scholarship and to make the Review a special community. They are a tough act to follow. I am excited and honored to work with the incoming class of extraordinary editors, and I am confident that together we will continue the Review’s tradition of excellence in legal scholarship.”

The Law Review, founded in 1887 by future Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, 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.
