Academic Freedom at AALS:

I did not attend the AALS conference this year, but from these accounts (Inside Higher Ed and Dorf on Law), it sounds like there was an interesting panel on academic freedom. Among other things, the panel addressed the controversy at the University of Minnesota over the decision to have University of St. Thomas law professor teach constitutional law this spring.

Teresa Collett (mail):
Elena Kagan's presentation was based upon her reading of the letter by a group of the University of Minnesota faculty and representations in the popular media. Had she read taken the time to read the original documents, including Professor Delahunty's memo for the OLC, she would not have reinforced popular misconceptions that he was an author of the "torture" memo. This lack of basic concern with the facts evidences the reality that many law schools have been become citadels of political correctness, rather than the rule of law.
