Thomas Jefferson Law Review Presents the 2014-2015 Managing Board
May 6, 2014
“We are very excited about the new board and the enthusiasm, intelligence, and determination they bring to the forefront of the Law Review,” said outgoing board members Danielle Gilbert, Conrad Ohashi and Stuart Mellman. “We’ve worked tirelessly this last year to grow the Journal: establishing a new, online edition of the journal; improving the trainings received by our new and continuing members; and transitioning to a new publisher that will produce higher quality journals while saving costs. We are currently working closely with the new board to ensure they are ready to take over. The new board will attend the National Conference of Law Reviews where they will learn the latest law review trends and how to use them to improve our Journal.”
