The People vs. Harvard Law; how America’s oldest law school turned its back on free speech
The People vs. Harvard Law; how America’s oldest law school turned its back on free speech.
Thomas, Andrew Peyton.
Encounter Books, [c]2005
Sixteen-year-old Filipino-American Kiwi Camara was the youngest student ever admitted into Harvard Law School. In 2002, like his fellow first-year classmates, the intellectually-gifted Camara posted his class notes and outlines on the law school’s website, where they were accessible to the law school community. The discovery of racial slurs in Camara’s notes set off a debate over free speech, dividing the student body and drawing faculty into battles with each other and with school administrators. Thomas documents the events surrounding the controversy and explores what they reveal about issues that have been brewing at Harvard over the last 25 years. A Harvard Law School graduate, Thomas now works as the district attorney of Maricopa County, Arizona.
