Today, Amy Chua - a well-known Yale law professor and the author of the best-seller - says she’s never told students to have a ‘model-like' look for Brett Kavanaugh. What’s the point? In this post, the Typical Student team is going to tell you.
Amy Chua is a law professor at Yale, who is famous thanks to her best-selling ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother’, published in 2011. She always endorsed supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and that’s another thing Amy’s famous for.
However, Chus was also known for instructing female law students. She told them to dress to exude a femininity and have a complete “model-like” look during the interviews with the judge. Why? All of these was made to win a post in Kavanaugh’s chambers
As stated by students, Prof Amy Chua and her husband Prof Jed Rubenfeld have been telling to girls students that Kavanaugh wants his clerks to have a “certain look”.What is more, there was a case when the advice was really off-putting. After this, one Yale law student even declined to pursue a clerkship with the judge.
Amy Chua’s Comments
However, Amy Chua denies all these facts. Here is how she comments on the situation.
“Everything that is being said about the advice I give to students applying to Brett Kavanaugh – or any judge – is outrageous, 100% false, and the exact opposite of everything I have stood for and said for the last 15 years,” says Chua.
