geoff kirsner

President

Geoff grew up in South Florida and attended the University of Miami before law school. Politically speaking, he’s staunchly pro-pickleback and admittedly a beer elitist. In his spare time, he enjoys breakfast sandwiches from Darwin's, darts, riding the bench on his intramural basketball team, and anything and everything HL Central.

valor lee

President

Valor was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona and went to the University of Southern California for college. (Yes, her first purchase after moving to Boston was a down jacket.) She is from Section 5, her favorite class at HLS was Animal Law and her favorite HL Central event is Halloween. (She never says no to a costume party!) On weekends, you can find her walking through Beacon Hill with her dog Boo.

Julia Huang

President

Julia Huang is a co-president of HL Central (another one?) because she knew she wouldn't get elected for Class Marshal. She grew up in New Jersey and went to Duke before law school. When she's not busy managing the finances and fundraising for events, you can find her stealing snacks from the JOLT office, stress cooking, playing Jeopardy with her Amazon Echo, and drinking boxed wine with little to no shame.

Daniela lorenzo

Events Chair

Daniela Lorenzo is a 2L from Miami, Florida who is very excited to be experiencing seasons. When not helping HLS students "raise the roof" at bar review, Daniela can be found excessively talking about Parody or fighting the system with PLAP and Defenders. She also has an unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter, Hamilton, and all things potato.

sam garcia

Events Chair

Sam Garcia is a 2L. There isn’t much that is interesting to know about Sam, except for the fact that he can name every breed of goat recognized by the ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association), but who can’t? He would say his colleagues are actually a lot more interesting than he is. For instance, Gabe Levin, self-proclaimed Nickelback enthusiast, was actually a local talk show host on a program called “Gabbin with Gabe”, and Daniela Lorenzo’s favorite TV channel is that one channel at every hotel that’s like about the hotel. How could he ever compete!

libby pica

Events Chair

Libby is from Philadelphia and graduated from Villanova University (Go Cats). At HLS, she’s involved in RAP, JSEL, and WLA. Outside of law, her passions include Berry Line, karaoke, and the Real Housewives.

Asseret prof pic.jpg

ASSERET FRAUSTO

Events Chair

Asseret’s name is her moms name backwards, minus the extra "-S" (She had a GREAT time in elementary school, as you can imagine). Her awards include: Pizza Princess and 3rd place at a pumpkin pie eating contest. At HLS, when she is not planning a booze cruise, you can find her either planning a latinx focused event with La Alianza or advocating for a disenfranchised client with PLAP.  In Cambridge, you can find her stuffing her face with Cambridge Commons Nachos, or with a burrito from Felipe's after a night out in the Kong. 

Liz prof pic.JPG

Liz fillman

Marketing & Communications Chair

Liz is a 2L from Nebraska (go Cornhuskers)! Her favorite HLC event is the 1L Cup, and when she’s not at bar review or another HL Central event, you can find her in Parody, planning events for the Harvard Women’s Law Association, or binge-watching Scandal. Also, she once hosted a party for Aaron Carter at her apartment. He didn’t want any candy. 

Emily prof pic.jpg

Emily mannheimer

Sponsorship Chair

Emily has never successfully planned an event, but working in sales beat the shame out of her, so she’s one of the people who handles the firm sponsorships for HL Central. At HLS, you can find her in PLAP, the Journal of Law and Gender, and Parody. Someone recently told Emily that an Alanis Morissette musical is coming to Cambridge. Come with her?

april hua

Sponsorship Chair

April is 2L from California! Apart from HL Central, she’s involved in RAP, the Food Law and Policy Clinic, and JOLT. She pretty much spends all her free time cooking or obsessing over her cat Chester, which seems about right since her camera roll is 50% food and 50% Chester.

Rob prof pic.jpg

robert seaney

1L Outreach Chair

Robert Seaney is a 3L serving his second year as 1L Programs Director. When he's not plotting pie-eating contests or hanging in the back of Klarman classes, you can find him playing guitar, scraping together flag football games, or bartending all over Cambridge and Somerville.

Gabe prof pic.jpg

gabe levin

1L Outreach Chair

Gabe is a 2L from Los Angeles. He loves playing hockey, watching (and re watching) Game of Thrones, and participating in as many HLS intramural sports as possible. Outside of HL Central, he is also a member of the BSA, and his favorite HL Central event is the 1L Cup.

ERIC VAN WART

Art, Sports, & Culture Chair

Eric is from the Chicago burbs and escaped to Southern California for college. His favorite experiences in Cambridge have been the Hovey at Darwins Cafe and getting called "Harry Potter" in dive bars by Boston sports fans.

Daniel Parino

Art, Sports, & Culture Chair

Daniel is California Bred, but he has moved around all over the place! He took a while off between undergrad and law school to work as an actor and a screenwriter.  His favorite HL Central Event is without a doubt the Harvard-Yale tailgate. Here at Harvard, you can find Daniel at PLAP office hours or on the Parody stage, and not at Harvard, you can find him training wolves.

Theresa prof pic.jpg

Theresa smith

Community Service Chair

Theresa is from London, and she loves anything that involves dogs, tennis, or fries. Her favorite HLS experience has been participating in the Immigration and Refugee Clinic, and her favorite HL Central event is Tacky Prom. You can find Theresa at the best Cambridge establishments every Friday night: Harvard House of Pizza and Berry Line.
