NEW YORK (AP) — A former money manager facing trial on insider trading charges was expelled from Harvard Law School more than a decade ago after he used a forged transcript he claimed he created to impress his parents to apply for a clerkship with as many as 23 federal appeals judges, according to documents unsealed Thursday.
"One cannot truly understand a legal argument on behalf of one client or side without thoroughly understanding and addressing competing arguments and objections," said Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow at a recent Federalist Society conference on intellectual diversity in law schools.
Harvard Law School's chapter of the Federalist Society recently hosted a conference addressing intellectual diversity in law school. Martha Minow, dean of the Harvard Law School, issued a statement at the conference professing Harvard Law's commitment to intellectual diversity.
The scholars and wordsmiths at the Department of Homeland Security leave everyone who aspires to good citizenship speechless.
The former Harvard Law School dean is the court's youngest member and just the fourth woman in history to receive the lifetime appointment.
The author of the New York Times best-seller "The Grand Jihad," Andrew C. McCarthy, has put the Senate Judiciary Committee on notice: There is a serious problem with the nomination of Elena Kagan to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court: "As dean [of the Harvard Law School] she became the champion of Shariah."
Republican senators Tuesday pressed Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan repeatedly over concerns she would be an activist judge, with President Obama's pick defending her record on restricting military recruiters at Harvard, gun rights, the rights of individuals vs. corporations and her admiration for the late Justice Thurgood Marshall.
Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Tuesday defended her position to restrict military recruiter access to Harvard Law School while she was dean, telling a Senate panel she always acted within the law.
Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Monday pushed back at Republican accusations that she is liberal ideologue, telling Congress that if confirmed she would consider every case "impartially, modestly" and "in accordance of the law."
Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan pledged Monday to be properly deferential to Congress if confirmed as a justice and to strive to "consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle and in accordance with law."
Solicitor General Elena Kagan is too political, too leftist, too inexperienced and too disrespectful towards existing law to be confirmed for the U.S. Supreme Court. As Ms. Kagan's nomination hearings begin on Monday, what we now know about her should disturb fair-minded Americans, and should embolden moderate senators of both parties to avoid rubber-stamping her for a lifetime appointment.
Hats off to Sen. Jeff Sessions. The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee has opened up an important new front in the debate over Solicitor General Elena Kagan's fitness to serve on the Supreme Court: her attitude toward the repressive legal code authoritative Islam calls Shariah and her enabling of efforts to insinuate it into this country.
