CUA Law Student Will Haun Selected for
Prominent Law Journal Editorial Position

 

Rising second-year Catholic University law school student Will Haun has been selected by The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies to serve as an executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy's National Symposium Board. Throughout the summer of 2010, Haun will edit submissions to the journal from law professors and judges across the country who contributed to the Federalist Society's symposium earlier this year.
 
Haun, a member of the Class of 2012, is chapter president of The Federalist Society at Catholic University. He has been an admiring reader of the journal for years and it has had an impact on his thinking about the law.
 
“I'm thrilled for the opportunity to work with some of the finest legal minds in the country,” said Haun. “To be associated with the journal is an honor beyond description.”
 
Every year, the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy publishes The Federalist Society’s National Student Symposium, a collection of legal scholarship from law professors and judges who spoke at the symposium earlier in the year. The national Federalist Society then selects one national editor, four executive editors and several senior editors based on a writing competition.
 
The group's task is to edit the papers for publication in the journal from Federalist Society members selected for the competition by the national organization.
 
The Federalist Society is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to the Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
