Berkeley Law's administration is yet again embroiled in a conflict between political activists and Professor John Yoo.
The school, according to an op-ed in the Daily Californian, has decided to keep the time and location of Yoo's classes confidential, in order to avoid protest disruptions like the ones the campus saw last semester.
Berkeley Law's spokeswoman Susan Gluss says Dean Christopher Edley is maintaining his commitment to allowing Yoo to teach without interruption.
"(Edley's) priority is to ensure that students can take any class without interference, including disruption or intimidation," Gluss said. "He also stands fervently behind university principles: to uphold freedom of thought, however unpopular, and freedom of inquiry, however uncomfortable."
With Edley continuing to stand by his man, it seems the activists from organizations like anti-war group World Can't Wait may struggle with this semester's protests. It isn't looking good for their campaign to get Yoo fired.
