Chemerinsky on the Amy Wax case
A propos L'Affaire Wax, Dean Chemerinsky (Berkeley) is quoted in this article:
I loathe what Amy Wax has said....But academic freedom protects her right to say it and a revocation of her tenure would violate principles of academic freedom...A core aspect of academic freedom is that both faculty members and students can engage in intellectual debate without fear of censorship or retaliation. This includes the right to express hurtful views.
