Brett Kavanaugh to Teach at George Mason


Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been hired by George Mason University to teach in England this summer at the university’s Antonin Scalia Law School, causing an uproar at the GMU Arlington campus.

Justice Kavanaugh will be teaching a course that covers the origins of the U.S. Constitution and he’s partnering with Jennifer Mascott, an assistant professor of law at the University. Mascott was previously one of Kavanaugh’s ​clerks on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

Previously, Kavanaugh taught at Harvard Law School for about 10 years, but ultimately decided not to return this year after students and alumni urged the school to revoke his lecturer status. Now, this fight to end his teaching career has jumped from Harvard to George Mason.

“What I find mostly interesting about all of this, is that universities are still so willing to attach their name with his after everything that’s gone on,” Olivia Deller, a sophomore government and politics and criminal justice double major, said.

A group, “Mason 4 Survivors,” has since started a petition for the university to remove Kavanaugh from his position.


The group also wants the university to issue a formal apology to victims of sexual assault and release any documents concerning his hiring. Students also took to social media to voice their opinions and constructed protests against the university’s actions.

For now, the university still plans for Kavanaugh to teach this summer and it does not appear that student protesters will be backing down either.
