UCI Law Review Elects First Ever All-Female Executive Board



IRVINE, Calif. – For the first time in its history, the University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law) Review has elected an all-female executive board.

“UCI Law Review is one of the only top-ranking law schools to have an all-female executive board,” said Tatum Wheeler, the Senior Diversity & Outreach Editor for the journal.

Founded in the spring of 2010, during the inaugural year of UCI Law, the Law Review is a student-run, student-edited journal. It promotes exceptional legal scholarship by featuring contributions from a spectrum of academic, practical, and student perspectives.

“To serve on the first all-woman Executive Board at the UCI Law Review means a great deal,” said Courtney Lem, a UCI Law 2L student and the Review’s Editor-in-Chief. “Although the legal profession has a history of male dominance, the UCI Law Review has been committed to diversity, inclusion, and innovation since its inception.”

The Executive Board members of UCI Law Review Volume 11 are:

  • Courtney Lem, Editor-in-Chief
  • Emily Horak, Managing Editor
  • Brooke Bolender, Senior Articles Editor
  • Sarah Sakr, Senior Research Editor
  • Catherine (Katie) Rosoff, Senior Notes & Comments Editor
  • Tatum Wheeler, Senior Diversity & Outreach Editor

“None of us would be in these positions without the support of our peers. Their belief in us as professionals and leaders means an incredible amount, and cements the fact that the students at this school are committed to equal representation in the legal profession,” said Lem.
