Ethan Drewes will serve as an editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy.

A University of Wyoming College of Law Student has been selected for the editorial board of the Harvard Journal of Law and Policy Annual Federalist Society National Student Symposium Issue. Ethan Drewes, a 1L from Longmont, Colorado, is the third UW student to be selected for the board.

The Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy is one of 15 scholarly journals at Harvard Law School and is published three times a year by the Harvard Society for Law & Public Policy, Inc., an organization of Harvard Law School students.

For the symposium edition, students from other law schools were invited to apply for a board position. Drewes submitted a resume, writing sample, and academic transcript and was selected on the basis of editing skill, attention to detail, and knowledge of Bluebook citations.

Drewes is a research assistant for Professor George Mocsary, who encouraged him to apply. “Ethan’s initiative and commitment have been exceptional, especially for a first-year law student,” says Mocsary.

The special issue will feature the 43rd annual Federalist Society National Student Symposium, which took place March 8–9, 2024, at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Symposium panels addressed fundamental questions about the U.S. constitutional structure and the separation of power between the three branches of government.

In 2020, Nathan Cowper of Laramie and Elizabeth “Lizzy” Stephani of Centennial, Colo., were the first students from the UW College of Law to be selected as editors for the journal. Cowper now serves as Chief Human Resources Officer for Albany County School Board #1. Stephani is a research fellow at University of Pau and the Adour Region, conducting research on transnational legal issues such as human rights, climate change, and trade.

Drewes graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Science in Business (BSBdegree in accounting in 2023 and played Wyoming Cowboy football in 2021-22. In the 2022 season he earned a full athletic scholarship, varsity letter, academic all-conference recognition, and membership to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society.

Drewes plans to work this summer with Cline Williams Wright Johnson and Oldfather in Fort Collins.
