After Ouster From Deanship For Representing Harvey Weinstein, Law Prof Blasts Harvard's Capitulation To A 'Loud Minority Of Students'

Recall the old adage about revolutions consuming their own. Harvard has turned on two black members of their faculty.

Would it be any less horrible if the students who did not "feel safe" around the lawyer for someone they despise (a large category) and to whom Harvard capitulated were a majority, or were quiet?

Harvard Law School should have their credentials pulled after this. How can you possibly be considered a "law school" and fire a professor for representing a client in court? How can you live in the United States and let mob rule be a guide in a decision like this? No one should trust a law school that does this.

Yale and Harvard survive largely on reputation. My guess is, if there were a really substantive system of evaluation, they wouldn't be in the Top Ten. Just saying.
