The UMKC Law Review advisors and outgoing editorial board are pleased to introduce the new editorial board assuming leadership this spring to begin work on Volume 90 of the publication. Most notably for alumni, the new Development Editor is Kait Turner, a 2L from Tuckerman, Arkansas. Kait will work closely with new Editor-in-Chief Danny O’Malley, a 2L from Westlake, Ohio, to further enhance the Law Review’s outreach with former board or staff members, and other alumni, as part of the publication’s 90th year celebration.
This new board has already overcome the challenge of spending more than half their law school careers navigating a pandemic while excelling in coursework and extracurriculars virtually, so although the coming months still remain uncertain, there’s no doubt that they are prepared and plenty capable to continue engaging with you and honoring the Law Review’s rich history as we all celebrate its milestone year. We look forward to doing so with you in person once it’s safe to do so, and in the meantime are eager to increase our virtual opportunities for connecting you with the new board and staff members.
This February, the Law Review had a group of 65 students take the write-on exam to become staffers for Volume 90. 56 staffers were selected and will begin their year with us this week with training and then will get to experience their first Bluebooking party the week of February 21st. We are so excited to welcome them to the team!
