Robby Soave: Conservative Professor CENSORED By Woke Students, Another Blow To Free Speech


The "conservative scholar" is old-school liberal Larry Alexander from the University of San Diego, which is the formerly cute university at which I teach. His comments in his brief piece on Michael Perry of Emory University are completely unobjectionable and consistent as far as I can tell with what US law actually often provides (but see Gail Heriot's blog post at the Volokh Conspiracy for an expert opinion on this -- post above).

It would be interesting if our esteemed Dean, Robert Shapiro, also the former Dean of Emory Law School, would weigh in on this issue, perhaps chiding the student editors of his former school's law school, that it's impolite and inappropriate to invite a distinguished scholar such as Larry to write a comment, then disinvite him for expressing politically incorrect views, especially if those views are in fact reasonable and in fact what the law actually often requires, even if he personally does not agree with them, which I presume he does not. However, I'm not holding my breath.

A dean who will speak up for sweetness and light? You are a wag.
