I can’t help but what the agenda is here. Is it an attempt to seem more unbiased? Maybe Harvard is unbiased but simply have a lot of snowflake liberals on their campus? Who knows…
In a shocking twist! Harvard has appointed a conservative as it’s new Dean.
John Manning joined the staff in 2004 and given his history… it seemed unlikely he would be a candidate for the position. He’s done A LOT in politics, too, and as suggested it’s all conservative-Republican work.
From working for legendary Justice Antonin Scalia to being the co-editor of Hart & Wechsler’s Federal Courts and the Federal System.
He’s obviously well-suited for the job. I’m going to go out on a happy limb here and say that there is no agenda. And the man more than deserves the job.
As Written By Hank Berrien for Daily Wire:
In a shocking turn of events, Harvard law school has appointed a conservative as its new dean. On July 1, John Manning, who joined the faculty in 2004, will become the school’s dean; his history would have suggested he had no chance for the job.
Manning has served twice at the two stints at the Justice Department, and clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia and the legendary conservative Judge Robert Bork on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Manning was the deputy dean, but the deans of the school have been leftists for years, most recently with Elena Kagan, who later was picked for the Supreme Court.
Manning has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court, and is the co-editor of Hart & Wechsler’s Federal Courts and the Federal System with Richard Fallon, Daniel Meltzer, and David Shapiro, and Legislation and Regulation, with Matthew Stephenson.
Previous deans include Derek Bok (1968-1971) who thought it was government’s job to spread happiness, and James Vorenberg, (1981-1989) who assisted Archibald Cox in the prosecution of the Watergate scandal………
