Fox News reports that former law professors told Fox News that university officials should reprimand students, administrators who infringe free speech policies, and stop giving in to the “woke mob”.
Ilya Shapiro, an ex-university law professor at Georgetown University, stated that university officials are spineless cowards who won’t enforce their rules when students violate them.

The Stanford University Federalist Society chapter invited Judge Kyle Duncan of 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, to speak at Stanford’s law school on March 9. A few students and an associate dean heckled Judge Kyle Duncan during his remarks. Federal marshals took him off campus after he failed to finish his lecture.
Shapiro, now the Manhattan Institute’s director of constitutional studies, stated that people should be allowed to protest, but not by hecklers closing down events. This does not limit free speech. “That imposes upon others freedom speech.”

Tirien Steinbach, a Stanford DEI Associate, joined students protesting Duncan’s rulings. They claimed that the judge’s rulings were harmful and pointed to, for instance, his refusal to use transgender offenders preferred pronouns within a 2020 opinion.
Steinbach also questioned school’s free speech policies, and whether Duncan’s comments were worth the “pain & division” he caused.
Fox News’ Shapiro stated, “It is appalling.” “Steinbach must be fired.”

STANFORD LAW DEAN’S SHAMEFUL ATACK ON FREE SPEECH MEANS THIS TO THE EDUCATION MOB
Shapiro stated that Shapiro did not believe Shapiro was following the school’s policy. She should be fired for dereliction of duty, not for her speech.
Stanford’s campus disruption policies state that the university supports students’ right to protest against viewpoints they disagree with so long as it doesn’t “prevent or disrupt the effective carrying out of a University function.” Shapiro stated that the dean encouraged students not to protest against the judge’s views but to disrupt and end his remarks.
Shapiro is a familiar figure with cancel culture.
After Shapiro’s criticism of President Biden’s promise to select a Black woman for Supreme Court, Georgetown put Shapiro on leave last year. After students demanded his resignation, Shapiro resigned. claimed that his comments were racist.
A student at Stanford could have been heard shouting “your racist is showing” at Duncan while he was speaking. After the incident, Marc Tessier Lavigne, the University President, and Jenny Martinez from Stanford Law School apologized to the judge. On Monday, hundreds of students lined the hall in front of Martinez’ classroom wearing masks that said “counter-speech IS free speech”.
Shapiro stated, “It does give us pause about the future leaders.” It’s not a matter ideological disagreement or constitutional interpretation. It’s like seeing their political enemies not only as wrong but also as evil.
Shapiro stated that students will be more trouble if they aren’t taught the values of free speech, upholding policies and how to appreciate the points of view of other sides.

Shapiro stated that the university’s administration did not “get across free inquiry, freedom speech, civil discourse and due process.” These values should be “as central or more to the mission of a law school.”
Shapiro stated, “There must be consequences.” “Also, this will spread.”
