College Fix, UMich Law School Scrubs Post-Trump Play-Doh and Coloring Event From Website:
Like many other universities this week, the University of Michigan Law School scheduled an event designed to help students recover from the trauma of Republican Donald Trump’s election victory.

Above the Law published an election poll of 2,000 law students and lawyers:
Update: Glenn Reynolds (Tennessee):
When schools treat an election as a traumatic event — often via their programs on “diversity and inclusion” — they are in fact telling students who voted for the “traumatic” candidate that they aren’t welcome as members of the community. Saying that there’s only one acceptable outcome for an election doesn’t promote diversity, and it makes students who supported the other candidate feel excluded.
