Group of Conservative Judges Boycott Columbia University Over Campus Unrest

A group of 13 conservative federal judges has announced that they will not hire graduates from Columbia University due to the school's handling of campus unrest. The judges, who are responsible for hiring law clerks, expressed their loss of confidence in Columbia as an institution of higher education. The unrest was sparked by pro-Palestinian encampments on campus, which led to police involvement. The judges criticized the university for applying double standards when it comes to free speech and student misconduct. The boycott will start with the class of 2024. The university has not commented on the letter.
