The George Washington Law Review is an entirely student-run publication that relies upon the collaboration of its highly talented Editorial Board and the work of its Associates and Members to produce valuable contributions to legal discourse. Each incoming Editorial Board relies upon the guidance and mentorship of the outgoing board to quickly acquire the ability to manage a project of this scale. Of course, the Law Review would not be able to accomplish anything without the persistent support of Law Review Office Manager, Carolyn Jacobs Harris.
