A number of conservative Harvard Law Students are resisting the liberal narrow-mindedness of the school they attend, and they’re doing in a creative way–organizing a good old fashioned protest during graduation exercises.
Here are a few details:
Last year at commencement, we at Harvard Law Unbound urged administrators and students to “Think Bigger,” by helping hold Eric Holder (the Class Day speaker) accountable for the “Fast and Furious” scandal.
This year at commencement, we urge both members of the Harvard Law School community, and others interested in the state of legal education at Harvard, to consider how the past four graduating classes have been thinking small, through their selection of mendacious moral midgets to speak on Class Day. Rather than selecting speakers of sterling character who represent some of the best humanity has to offer, they have selected speakers of doubtful character who represent something decidedly different.
Like our poster campaign at last year’s commencement, this is a four-poster campaign, with a poster devoted to each of the past four Class Day speakers (including the speaker for Class Day this year, next Wednesday, May 29). They are (in reverse chronological order): Jeffrey Toobin, 2013; Eric Holder, 2012; Alec Baldwin, 2011; and Samantha Power, 2010. Below are images of the posters now up throughout the Law School campus. At the top of each image is a link to a html version of the poster documenting (through hyperlinks) the key facts. We hope all who see the posters and who read this blog will learn something of value, and that this poster campaign will encourage the selection of more appropriate Class Day speakers in the future.

Hats off to the bold few at Harvard Law who have the nerve and good sense to resist the bias and absurdity all around them.
