The Harvard Law Review, volume 104

Harvard Law Review

The above image of the editorial board of volume 104 of the Harvard Law Review, which appeared in the January 28, 2007, issue of the New York Times, became part of the video introducing Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on August 28, 2008:





I was seated two places to the right of Barack Obama that day in 1991. The Harvard Law Review posts every editorial board's picture on its walls. It has always been enough — a source of pride, really — to appear in that picture and to know that it hangs somewhere in Gannett House, home to the Review. The portrait of us editors from volume 104 has now become part of the political iconography of Barack Obama and the 2008 presidential campaign.

Yes, you meet remarkable people during law school. Students, take note.
