Hilda Frimpong becomes first Black editor-in-chief of Syracuse Law Review
Hilda Frimpong, a second-year law student at the Syracuse University College of Law, has been named as the new editor-in-chief of the Syracuse Law Review. Born in Ghana and raised in Dallas, Texas, 30-year-old Frimpong becomes the first Black person to hold the position
The Syracuse Law Review, founded in 1949, is one of the prestigious student-run publications at the Syracuse University College of Law. “Its longstanding goal has been to provide distinguished scholarly works that address timely and intriguing issues within the legal community,” its website says.
Frimpong, who is a former Miss Ghana USA winner, will lead the Law Review for the 2021-22 academic year with a majority-female board. In an interview with Face2Face Africa, Frimpong answered some questions about herself, what her goals for the Law Review are, and what being elected as the first Black editor-in-chief of the journal means to her.
