Joseph "Joey" Ravenna
Originally from sunny Southern California, Joey is a graduate of Wharton and the College. As a dual degree student who studied business economics & public policy and political science, he is very grateful to be attending Harvard Law School following his undergraduate studies.
Having spent his sophomore summer volunteering in his hometown city hall and coming to work at the U.S. Department of Commerce during his junior and senior years, Joey aspires to a career in corporate regulation and governance, with the aim of preserving competition in the American free market. This interest has driven much of his work within and without our Journal. Thus, it may come as little surprise that Joey wrote his senior honors thesis on antitrust in "Big Tech." He also co-founded one of Penn's financial investment groups.
In his time as Editor-in-Chief, Joey expanded the size of the Journal to a membership in excess of 175, making it the largest undergraduate law journal in the United States. He also alleviated a two-year publication backlog and a 10-year budget deficit, leaving PULJ with a budget surplus for the first time in its history. He authored the Charter of the Journal as well.
In his spare time, Joey enjoys trading stocks, working in his backyard, and practicing his golf. Whether he's decent at any of these hobbies has yet to be seen.
