Aaron Sibarium: Elite Law Schools Are Going Woke | TEASER

“The whole premise of the American legal system is that everyone—no matter how unpopular—deserves legal representation. John Adams famously defended the British soldiers accused of the Boston Massacre. And he said it was one of the greatest things he ever did for the fledgling Republic that he helped found.
