Yale Law Students Protest Kavanaugh Nomination On Campus And In DC

Yale Law School students are protesting the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court and demanding an investigation of sexual misconduct allegations against him.

In another tweet, Bolger states that on September 21, "YLS faculty demanded fair process on Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations, [but the] @YaleLawSch dean chose to remind us that she 'cannot take a position for or against a nominee.'" Bolger then added that the YLS dean, "didn't bother her [a] few months ago when she issued [a] press release fawning over his nomination". Other Yale students traveled to Washington to protest Kavanaugh's nomination on Monday.

"She's lying", the woman told HuffPost.

One student told the Huffington Post that she had "mixed feelings" regarding the advice from Chua.

She hit back in an email on Saturday clarifying that although she did advise on dress code, it was to both genders.

Chua asked the woman if she came from a low-income or disadvantaged background, claiming this would make a good "sob story" to appeal to Kavanaugh, according to the transcript.

The former student told the Guardian that in the following year, he advised two female classmates who were also interested in clerking for Kavanaugh to talk to Chua.

'She advised me to be and dress "outgoing, "' the Yale alum said. The unnamed sources the paper spoke with described receiving advice from Chua and her husband, Jed Rubenfeld, also of Yale, about the "look" Kavanaugh favored. The comment echoes those given to HuffPost from three students who had drinks with Chua past year. CT senator and Yale graduate Richard Blumenthal also made an appearance at the sit-in, where he told students, "There is no way that the US Senate, in good conscience, can vote on this nomination without a full investigation".

Amy Chua, 55, author of the 2011 controversial parenting book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, says what was alleged by multiple former students is "100 percent false" and "outrageous".

In her message to the Yale Law community, Chua said she tells students to dress professionally and "prep insanely hard" because "substance is the most important thing".

Blumenthal later told reporters that Kavanaugh's accusers must be heard, and that "they have a right to tell their stories when and how they wish". I tell them to be courteous to everyone, including the staff and clerks.

"Some questions are so fundamental to judicial integrity that the Senate can not rush past them without undermining the public's confidence in the Court". I always try my best to be frank and transparent, and to hold students to the highest professional standard, and every year for the last decade I have been invited by affinity groups like Yale Law Women, the Black Law Students Association, and Outlaws to host clerkship advice sessions. Particularly galling to students is the idea that Yale might have known about the sexual misconduct of one federal judge, Alex Kozinski ― a popular judge for Yale students to clerk with, as well as Kavanaugh's mentor.

Chua has canceled all of her Yale courses this year and is reportedly in the hospital with an undisclosed illness.

"They got the same advice: "He likes girls who are pretty", the student said.
