Blog Headaches at Harvard Law
The Harvard Crimson reports that Harvard’s liberal blogging policy has gotten a few students in legal hot water.
From Harvard Crimson:
Though a few cases stand out, two years after the project’s launch and 650 blogs later, most blogs have been harmless. Students seem to have passed at the opportunity to humiliate publicly their most hated professors. Instead, and especially at the Law School, the blogs have built a surprisingly tame digital community for those who choose to use it.
But in a few instances, Harvard’s liberal blogging policy has gotten a few students in legal hot water.
…Harvard blogs may not necessarily need controversial posts, but Harvard students have never been known for their timidity. Perhaps the Harvard community has a good, solid “Sex in the City”-style blog in its future, or maybe just a witty, radical political activist.
