The Harvard Law Review has elected Conor Tochilin ’13 as its 126th president. Tochilin succeeds Mitchell Reich ’12.

“The Law Review is terrifically fortunate to have Conor as its president,” said Reich.  “Kind, brilliant, and a natural leader, Conor has impressed us all from his first days at Gannett House.  I am looking forward to his outstanding work in the year ahead.”

Tochilin is a native of Atlanta, Ga. and graduated from Harvard College with an A.B. in Economics and Philosophy.  Before attending Harvard Law School, he worked as a consultant and investor in New York and London.  He is also pursuing an M.B.A. at Harvard Business School.

“Mitch has been a truly phenomenal leader this year,” said Tochilin.  “His great intellect, passion for the law, and deep personal warmth rightly earned him the admiration of all his colleagues on the Review.  I am honored to follow such a talented leader in this role, and I look forward to working with the next class of editors to continue the Review’s tradition of excellence in legal scholarship.”

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.
