Precious Little Snowflakes At Columbia Law School

Allow me to go on record saying that I am traumatized by the fact that I am not a billionaire recluse luxuriating in champagne wishes and caviar dreams, but I soldier on.

Columbia Law School is permitting students claiming to be impaired due to the emotional impact of recent non-indictments in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner matters to postpone taking their final exams. [Emphasis mine]

Eugene Volkokh believes “fortitude in the face of injustice is a pretty important trait for lawyers to have, and for law schools to cultivate. Where would the civil rights movement have been if civil rights lawyers were so traumatized by injustice that they couldn’t function effectively without deadline extensions? Where would a lawyer today be if, faced with a verdict—even in one of his own cases, and not just elsewhere—that he thought horribly unjust, he was so overcome with ‘grief’ that he couldn’t perform effectively?”

These precious little snowflakes will be lucky to be licking stamps in some lowly legal aid office.  Cowards never tire of cowering.
