‘We Deserve Better’: Harvard Students Take In Kavanaugh-Ford Hearing, Protest the Law School and the Nominee
Students sitting in Harvard Law classrooms “applauded” and “burst out in cheers” when Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh lamented the fact that he might never return to teach at the school during an extraordinary Senate hearing Thursday.
