Imelme Umana Elected as First Black Female Harvard Law Review President

ImeIme Umana has been elected president of the Harvard Law Review, the first black woman to hold the position.

The president is elected by the editorial board of the independent, student-run publication, which was founded in 1887.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Umana, who graduated from Harvard College in 2014 and has worked as a criminal law investigative intern for the public defender’s office in D.C., expects to receive her Harvard law degree in 2018.

As an undergraduate student, Umana focused on government and African-American studies while working at Harvard’s Hip-Hop Archive & Research Institute and serving as president of the university’s Institute of Politics.

Umana follows in the footsteps of former President Barack Obama, who was elected in 1990 as the first black man elected as HLR’s president.
