Professors at Yale Law School, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alma mater, cancelled class on Monday to allow students to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation in light of sexual assault allegations made against him.

One professor, James Forman, cancelled his Criminal Law class in an email to his students, writing “I just received a request to cancel class on Monday. I understand that some students want to go to D.C. to protest or otherwise engage with the Kavanaugh hearings. Criminal Law is cancelled”

Not all classes were cancelled though, according to Yale Law spokeswoman Debra Krozer.

“Yale Law School did not cancel all classes,” she said. “Many faculty members chose to reschedule or cancel their own classes today. And some held classes as usual.”

Law & Crime reports that 31 classes were cancelled due to the protests. Yale Law School students and alumni have organized “sit ins” against Kavanaugh’s nomination both on Yale’s campus and in Washington, D.C.

On Monday morning, Yale Law School’s main hallway was lined with students wearing black and sitting in silence. More

I suppose Yale Law does not teach an accused is innocent until proven guilty?
