Harvard professor describes the problem with colleges trying to become more ‘diverse’
In December, the US Supreme Court reheard oral arguments in an affirmative action case called Fisher v. University of Texas. The highly anticipated case could have a far-reaching impact on the ability of US universities to consider race in admissions as part of their efforts to create a diverse campus. Indeed, proponents of affirmative action cite diversity as one of its main goals. However, one prominent higher education expert thinks conversations about diversity distract people from the original goal of affirmative action: reparative justice for people who have traditionally been oppressed. "Because affirmative action now rests on the diversity rationale, people who embrace affirmative action have to make all sorts of claims for diversity," Harvard law professor Randall Kennedy said at a New York University-sponsored event focused on race-based admissions at colleges. "Some of the claims that are made in favor of diversity are very questionable," he continued.

Russia’s Withdrawal Is Islamic State’s Win
An op-ed by Noah Feldman. Russian President Vladimir Putin had his “mission accomplished” moment Monday, announcing that Russia would withdraw its main forces from Syria after they turned the tide in President Bashar al-Assad’s struggle against Syrian rebels. The announcement partly explains why Putin has been supporting a cease-fire and truce talks over the last month: His goal is to consolidate the gains he and Assad made together. From a purely cynical perspective, the operation has been a fairly impressive success for Putin: Bomb intensely to create a humanitarian crisis while your troops advance, then negotiate peace to look like a good guy while assuring that the other side can’t fight back without violating the truce. And accomplish all this while strengthening your bargaining position vis-à-vis the U.S. and Europe.

The Harvard Law shield tied to slavery is already disappearing, after corporation vote
The symbol of Harvard Law School is already changing after the Harvard Corporation voted Monday to accept a committee’s recommendation to remove the shield used for 80 years because it does not reflect the values of the school. It was a powerful symbolic decision from one of the world’s most elite universities at a time when campuses across the United States and overseas are debating whether historic symbols, statues and names should be removed because of their ties to racism, or whether that would amount to erasing the past...“I was pleased that the corporation got to the matter as quickly as it did,” said Bruce H. Mann, chair of the committee and Carl F. Schipper Jr. professor of law. “No one ever has any idea when the corporation meets, so when you send off a recommendation to them, you really never know when you might hear back. I think that in this case, the quickness with which they addressed the issue was a measure of how seriously they took all the effort we had put into trying to resolve the matter.”

Meet the author who shined a light on the Harvard Law crest controversy
As a Harvard Law School committee was issuing its recommendation March 3 to do away with the institution’s controversial seal, the man who helped bring the issue to light was preparing to give a lecture -- appropriately enough -- on inflammatory symbols of the past. “How’s that for a coincidence?” asked Daniel Coquillette. A former dean of the Boston College Law School and current Charles Warren Visiting Professor of American Legal History at Harvard Law School, the bespectacled Coquillette might not be the most public force behind the recent movement to examine the school’s racial climate. But as co-author of the 2015 book, “On the Battlefield of Merit: Harvard Law School, The First Century” -- which outlines the often unflattering racial history of the prestigious institution -- he has been widely credited with helping to jump-start it.

Berkman Center lawyer to run new cyberlaw clinic for BU, MIT students
MIT and Boston University are bolstering their partnership that gives legal advice to entrepreneurs and high-tech researchers. First Amendment and technology law expert Andy Sellars has been hired to direct BU’s new Technology and Cyberlaw Clinic. Sellars previously worked at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The new clinic is part of a broader effort to link BU’s law program with projects and businesses that emerge from students at MIT and BU. Last year, the two schools established an Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property Clinic to help student entrepreneurs deal with legal trouble or work through common legal questions, such as how to incorporate a business and protect their intellectual property. The new Technology and Cyberlaw Clinic will help students tackle regulatory and legal hurdles that might trip up their cutting-edge research projects — something that MIT students in particular have run into before.
