Congratulations and thank you to The Regulatory Review’s 2022-2023 Editorial Board.
The Regulatory Review would like to extend our great appreciation to all the members of the 2022-2023 editorial board for their many dedicated efforts in leading this publication over the last year. We are delighted to extend to each of them our congratulations on their graduation from law school today!
We are publishing this special feature today in honor and appreciation of the 2022-2023 editorial board for their service and mentorship. They set an outstanding example of teamwork and professionalism and helped make the last year on The Regulatory Review extremely meaningful and educational. We look forward in the years ahead to the positive impact they will continue to make to society through all that they accomplish in their careers.
“Last year’s editorial board displayed tremendous dedication,” said Cary Coglianese, the faculty advisor to The Regulatory Review and the Director of the Penn Program on Regulation, which sponsors The Review. “They published important work on regulatory issues at a tremendous pace—averaging new content every single day of the last year.”
Their accomplishments included the publishing of nearly a dozen online symposia and playing a key role in the development of new features, such as The Regulatory Review In Depth and the Sunday Spotlight, and valuable new internal staff practices.
“I congratulate all the graduating students who served on The Regulatory Review staff and wish them continued success in all that they will achieve in the years ahead,” Coglianese added.
“I also offer my special gratitude for the remarkable dedication demonstrated by The Review’s top leadership team, specifically Soojin Jeong who served as Editor in Chief, Margaret Sturtevant who served as Managing Editor, and Karis Stephen who served as Community Editor.”
Today, as Penn Law celebrates its 2023 graduation, we would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the 2022-2023 editorial board and share with readers links to selected essays by editorial board members that were published in The Review during their time on staff.
