The Harvard Law Review has elected Michael Zuckerman ’17 as its 130th president. Zuckerman succeeds Jonathan Gould ’16.

“The Law Review will have a wonderful year under Mike’s leadership,” said Gould. “Mike is a brilliant editor whose deep dedication to the Law Review’s mission and community have earned him the admiration of his peers, all of whom will benefit from his wisdom, kindness, and tireless work ethic in the year ahead. Mike will make a terrific president, and I look forward to watching him lead the Review in the coming year.”

Zuckerman grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, and graduated from Harvard College in 2010 with an A.B. in Social Studies. Before entering Harvard Law School, he served as a research assistant to Harvard Kennedy School professor and former presidential adviser David Gergen and as an associate at the Boston Consulting Group.

“Jon is an extraordinarily hard act to follow,” said Zuckerman. “He has led the Law Review not just with remarkable legal insight and skill, but also with deep humanity and uncommon judgment. All of us within the Law Review community have been extremely lucky to benefit from his leadership. I look forward to working alongside my phenomenal fellow editors to continue the tradition of excellence that Jon and his class are passing on to us.”

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.
