On 28 February 2017 The New York Times reported: It has been 27 years since the first black man, an older student by the name of Barack Obama, was elected president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review. It has been even longer - 41 years - since the first woman, Susan Estrich, was elected to the position. . . . Only now, for the first time in the history of the venerable 130-year-old journal, is the president a black woman. ImeIme (pronounced ''Ah-MAY-may'') Umana, 24, the third-oldest of four daughters of Nigerian immigrants, was elected on Jan. 29 by the review's 92 student editors as the president of its 131st volume. The Harvard Law Review - which, like other law reviews, allows students to hone their legal writing skills and gives scholars a forum in which to thrash out legal arguments - is often the most-cited journal of its kind and has the largest circulation of any such publication in the world. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Its presidency is considered the highest-ranking student position at the ferociously competitive law school and a ticket to virtually anywhere in the legal realm. Half of the current U.S. Supreme Court justices served on the Harvard Law Review, though none as its president.
