MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Kaitlyn Akers, a rising third-year student at the West Virginia University College of Law, has been elected by her peers to serve as the next editor-in-chief of the West Virginia Law Review.
The WVLR is a professional legal journal that publishes practical and theoretical articles for legal scholars, students, legislators and lawyers. Founded in 1894, it is the fourth oldest student-governed law review in the country.
Akers will lead the team that will publish three issues of Volume 124 of the WVLR in 2021-22. She will also oversee the law review’s annual symposium, website and online edition.
“Being selected as editor-in-chief for Volume 124 is a great honor,” Akers said. “While I am so proud to serve, I first want to thank my team. Our work is already underway, and I cannot thank them enough for how intelligent, hardworking, and insightful every single member of this team has been and will continue to be.”
