A group of Harvard Law students have requested the school push for an investigation into the sexual assault allegation made against Brett Kavanaugh before the Supreme Court nominee teaches a winter class in 2019.
“Will Harvard Law School take seriously the credible allegation of Kavanuagh’s sexual assault against a young woman before he is allowed to continue teaching young women?
The students argued Kavanaugh’s upcoming class, called “The Supreme Court since 2005,” might not be “equally available to women” because female students might choose to “self-select out of a class taught by a credibly accused sexual assailant.”
She said Harvard Law School allowing him to teach puts students in a “very uncomfortable position and necessitates that vulnerable people self-select out of a learning opportunity.”
“Unless a full and fair investigation is conducted, Harvard Law School cannot allow Kavanaugh to continue teaching its students and the Senate cannot confirm him to the Supreme Court,” the four students wrote.
