As PJ Media covered in depth, many elite law schools in the United States are demonstrably and openly becoming heavy pushers of far-left ideologies.
The University of Chicago Law School is no exception to this. Despite reportedly having a reputation as being a more “conservative” law school, it seems that leftist influence is very present in the school’s curriculum. The school is a self-proclaimed pusher of “Diversity and Inclusion” initiatives, frequently bragging about its enrolment of women and non-white students. The school’s website additionally features a “Law School Diversity Concern Report Form” in case anybody tries to step out of line.
Recently, UChicago’s law school posted a video on its YouTube channel discussing concepts such as poor people having “no formal rights to land.”
It does not end there. The school is quite public in advertising its left-wing views, as observed in various courses offered in its catalog.
This course provides an introduction to critical race theory through reading canonical works by critical race scholars; it explores a selection of current legal debates from a critical race perspective; and it contextualizes critical race theory through the study of related movements in legal scholarship, including legal realism, critical legal studies, and social science research on discrimination and structural racism. We will attempt to identify the ways in which critical race scholarship has influenced, or should influence, legal research and law school pedagogy.
Another course, “Public Law in the Time of Trump,” appears to call for law professors around the nation to join a dogpile dumping on the former president:
Recent events, including President Trump’s controversial policies and actions, the COVID-19 pandemic, and nationwide protests over police brutality, have placed a strain on administrative law and institutions in the United States. In this seminar, invited speakers from other law schools will present scholarships that examine these developments. The seminar serves the dual purpose of introducing students to scholarly approaches to understanding contemporary events, and educating them about the relevant administrative and constitutional rules, particularly those that address crises and fast-changing problems.
In the not-so-far past, the school held a discussion with former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke to discuss “voting rights.”

Notably, the former congressman is adamantly opposed to requiring a government ID to vote and has argued that requiring one to prove who they are is both discriminatory and an undue burden.
PJ Media detailed numerous other examples of such blatant bias at UChicago.
