Clearly the students of the Law School at Stanford should be able to, or learn how to listen to all arguments with respect and regard. If they cannot arrest their biases to hear clearly without prejudice they certainly should not be become lawyers. There are plenty of opportunities to become lobbyists instead.

I saw the video.

As an alum of the university (not law school), I thought the behavior of the students was ridiculous.

A complaint where they become discredit from being attorneys goes too far, though. They are still not fully "adults".

On the other hand, the "inclusion professor" who basically sanctioned and encouraged this behavior should be fired.

Of course, this won't happen as it would be the opposite of the "woke" image Stanford is trying to project.

The university used to be all about academic excellence.

Maybe those days have come to an end.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
