In Legal Ploy, Harvard University Divorces Harvard Law Review

Harvard Law ReviewFollowing up on yesterday's post, Harvard Law Review Hits Back Against Discrimination Claims:  ValueWalk, In Legal Ploy, Harvard University Divorces Harvard Law Review:

Harvard University, in a novel legal argument to escape liability for alleged discrimination on the basis of race and sex, has claimed that the Harvard Law Review, the premier publication of its Harvard Law School, is not only completely separate from the University, but, because it receives no federal funding, immune from federal anti-discrimination laws.

Under such a legal premise, the Harvard Law Review could presumably exclude African Americans and females and Jews from its membership, or, at the other extreme, insist that all of its members, as well as the authors it chooses to publish, be African American lesbians who are also atheists, suggests public interest law professor John Banzhaf.
