"University of Illinois repeals the First Amendent for its faculty"

More thoughts on the Illinois/Salaita fiasco.  A number of law professors have been outspoken and informative on this issue--Michael Dorf (Cornell), Katherine Franke (Columbia), and Kevin Heller (London), among others--but more need to make their voices heard, especially those of us in Illinois.  This is a travesty, that bodes ill for all our colleagues at state universities around the country.  I hope my esteemed colleagues at the University of Illinois College of Law will speak up.   Many of my friends in the humanities at Illinois worry that the Admin only takes seriously the professional schools and the "STEM" faculties.
