The cancel culture is alive and thriving. A university cancelled a teaching gig at its law school for David Schoen, one of President Trump’s attorneys, because of his involvement in the recent second impeachment trial. Schoen was told that some faculty and students at the university said they would be uncomfortable with him being on campus because of his defense of Trump. In a recent interview with Newsmax, Schoen stopped short of naming the school.
It sends a terrible message to law students. “If someone wants to be a lawyer and they’re going to be uncomfortable with someone being on campus because of their beliefs, find a new thing to do in life,” says Viva Frei’s David Freiheit. “That type of childishness might fly on campus, but it will not fly in the practice of law and it certainly will not fly in the courtroom.” Here’s more on Viva Frei.
