Lessons from a post-9/11 world
When Deborah Alejandra Popowski, J.D.’08, was just beginning her studies at Harvard Law School (HLS), she learned a powerful lesson about the value and import of the law. An American attorney representing a Guantanamo detainee spoke at an HLS event. The lawyer told of her client, a Saudi citizen in his early 20s, and of the regimen of inhuman treatment that he endured at the hands of U.S. military forces. For Popowski, the lawyer’s testimony brought home the human dimension of torture. “Everybody in law school was talking about concepts and the rule of law regarding torture,” Popowski said. “That was the first time that I had ever heard somebody talking about people.” Ever since, she has tried to follow that example and tend the people. Since 2009, when Popowski began working as a fellow at the HLS International Human Rights Clinic, she has advocated for torture survivors as part of a movement to seek accountability for U.S. torture through both state and international courts.

Why 1 Black Professor Wanted To Keep Harvard Law School’s Shield (video)
In October 2015, Harvard Law School students demanded the removal of the law school's shield because of its ties to a slave owner — Isaac Royall Jr. — who is also credited with helping form the Harvard Law School. Annette Gordon-Reed, law school professor and Thomas Jefferson historian, was one of the only people on a 12-person committee who wanted to keep the school's shield. That committee ultimately voted to retire the shield from the law school in March. We talked to Gordon-Reed about why she thought the school should've kept the shield and why she believes many people weren't receptive to her suggestion.

WBUR
City Hopes Verizon Fios Will Boost Local Businesses
Mayor Marty Walsh announced Tuesday that Verizon will spend more than $300 million to bring its advanced fiber optic network to all corners of the city. The high speed Internet and cable television service has long-been available in many other Massachusetts communities. By connecting Boston, Verizon will now close a major gap in its service in the region...But some observers are skeptical. Susan Crawford, a Harvard Law School professor and director at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, said it’s unclear whether Fios will actually result in lower prices and better service because of the increased competition with Comcast. “It will take a lot of acts and enforcement activity by the Walsh administration to ensure that landlords allow Verizon to show up to ensure that two companies actually compete with each other, but kudos to them for taking this first step,” Crawford said. “The [Michael] Bloomberg administration took a very similar step a few years ago and it hasn’t led to complete coverage in New York City of competing high speed Internet access services. It may be that Boston will be able to do a better job.”

The Harvard Crimson
Divest Harvard Protesters Arrested At HMC Building
Police arrested several members of the student activist group Divest Harvard after they staged a sit-in within the lobby of the Boston Federal Reserve Tuesday afternoon, protesting Harvard Management Company’s investment in the fossil fuel industry...The four students had been sitting for about one to two hours before being escorted out of the building, according to Harvard Law School student Joseph “Ted” E. Hamilton, a plaintiff in a case against the University some members of the group filed in 2014...Harvard Law School student Kelsey C. Skaggs, a Divest Harvard member in attendance, said only four members of the group actually protested inside the lobby in order to avoid blocking normal access to the building, which also houses the Consulates General of Italy and Japan.

The Washington Post
The fate of Obama’s actions on deportations will be decided by the 2016 election
On Monday, the Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in the high stakes legal battle over President Obama’s executive actions on deportations, which could impact the fates of millions of immigrants and has set in motion one of the defining political fights over the proper extent of executive power of the Obama era. The Obama administration submitted its final argument this week, and a decision is expected in June. But for all the noise that will attend all of these legal proceedings, they may not end up mattering that much in practice...“If Hillary Clinton is elected president, she will nominate a justice, and then once that justice is confirmed, she will seek a do-over before the Supreme Court, at which she will probably prevail, and the program would then go forward,” Harvard law professor Noah Feldman tells me. “In this scenario, the election will resolve it ultimately, but it might take a long time.”

Recycling food waste in Connecticut: Slow as molasses
...The anaerobic digester pilot along with a mandate that certain large food waste producers keep that waste out of the trash stem from legislation passed in 2011. But five years later not a single one of five proposed anaerobic digesters has started construction and food waste is increasing. A lot...DEEP has gone looking for help to figure it all out. And that meant heading across the border to Massachusetts, which is much further ahead on food waste reduction. Two organizations there, the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic and the Center for Eco-Technology, recently began working with Connecticut. Harvard’s senior clinical fellow, Ona Balkus, said even with cities like San Francisco, Seattle and New York far into food waste recycling, including pickup, Connecticut actually is ahead of the game. Most states and cities are just starting to look at the issue and the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture only last September announced a first-ever national food waste reduction goal – 50 percent by 2030.

Bloomberg
Even Teen Murderers Can Change
An op-ed by Noah Feldman. What good is winning a reprieve from life without parole if the court just turns around and resentences you to 59 years in prison? For juvenile offenders, that question was partially answered Monday when an appeals court reversed the new sentence given by a lower court to a defendant convicted of committing rape and murder when he was 16. Kids grow up, and the appeals court said the sentencing judge should have considered how much the defendant might have matured in the decade between his crime and resentencing.

The Harvard Crimson
Second Recording Device Found at Law School
Law School affiliates discovered additional physical evidence of illegal audio recording activity over the weekend and on Monday, heightening activists’ concerns about surveillance of private conversations...Reclaim Harvard Law members publicly aired concerns about what they perceive as collaboration between administrators and HUPD during the investigation in a press release Tuesday. “We find it hard to trust the Harvard University Police Department charged with the investigation given their close relationship with the administration,” second-year Law student Simratpal Kaur wrote in the statement. Administrators initially offered to assist in the HUPD sweep of the student lounge on Monday. Law School spokesperson Robb London said administrators who were present only offered to lift furniture and were not sent to intervene in the sweep.
