Law Student Claims Professor Named HIV-Positive Character On Exam After Her Because She’s Conservative

New York Post, Law School Student Claims Professor Named HIV-Positive Character on Exam After Her Because She's Conservative

StudentA University of Sydney, Australia student claims she was unfairly targeted in a law exam that sees a character with her first name kill a man, infect another with HIV and get thrown out of a window.

Freya Leach, 19, said she and her second-year criminal law cohort were given a fictional scenario as part of an end-of-semester test in which a character — a uni student named “Freya” — murders one of her left-leaning peers.

The namesake character also deliberately infects a sexual partner with HIV.

Leach, who is a member of the Conservative club and the Young Liberals, has accused the faculty of mocking her political views in the essay question, the Daily Telegraph reported.
