My colleague, the legal scholar Randall Kennedy is worth reading on anything. Today he writes on our colleague Ron Sullivan: Harvard Betrays a Law Professor — and Itself
Harvard makes it official, embraces the culture of safetyism and concept creep. Value of Harvard grads to future employers drops 5%. Great essay by Randall Kennedy, about dismissing .
Harvard "has never so thoroughly embarrassed itself as it did this past weekend." Devastating op-ed from Randall Kennedy in
This is the most important thing you’ll read this week. The republic is dying.
I agree fully with my colleague Randall Kennedy’s denunciation of Harvard University’s mistreatment of my colleagues Ronald Sullivan and Stephanie Robinson. Of the many blunders Harvard has made in my 50 years as a professor here, I recall none worse.
Very strong words from Randall Kennedy on the Sullivan affair: in his 34 years at Harvard, the university “has never so thoroughly embarrassed itself as it did this past weekend.”
Harvard appears to have ratified the proposition that it is inappropriate for a faculty dean to defend a reviled person — a position that would disqualify people like Thurgood Marshall. Randall Kennedy on in

This is a must-read from Harvard Law School professor Randall Kennedy: “Harvard Betrays a Law Professor — and Itself”

Wow-Randy used the phrase mau-maued.
"The upshot is that Harvard College appears to have ratified...a position that would disqualify a long list of stalwart defenders of civil liberties and civil rights, including Charles Hamilton Houston and Thurgood Marshall."
"Friends of academia should insist that Harvard answer the question: Why is serving as defense counsel for Harvey Weinstein inconsistent with serving as a faculty dean?"
