BREAKING: Law Students Stage Massive Walkout Over Kavanaugh


Over 2700 law professors and professionals signed a letter urging the Senate to vote against confirming then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS). The Senate ignored them. Law students did not accept that and took action.

New York University (NYU) School of Law students and those from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law walked out of class to protest Kavanaugh’s appointment. Students from other schools joined them.

#StrikeAgainstKavanaugh walkout in NYC is many blocks long, hundreds of law students just from Cardozo and NYU law schools, headed to Washington Square to meet up with Brooklyn Law now.’

‘”Dr. Ford and Dr. Hill, we believe them, always will!” NYC #StrikeAgainstKavanaugh law student walkout.’

Justine Medina, who is a second-year Brooklyn Law School student, was one of the organizers for the New York demonstrators. She spoke to The Washington Post:

‘There’s a lot of rage now all across the political spectrum.’

The student organizers worked with the National Lawyers Guild advocacy group. The walk-out was to occur on three consecutive days. In the students’ announcement letter, they wrote:

‘We are in the middle of a national emergency We do not recognize Kavanaugh as a legitimate member of the United States Supreme Court. We demand that anyone seeking to be elected to Congress in November commits to impeaching Kavanaugh to protect any semblance of rule of law and the people of our communities.’
