The law school at the heart of the sexual misconduct allegations against Stanford University professor and University of Pennsylvania professor, John C. Loehmann, is facing pressure from a conservative advocacy group that is urging law school students not to sign a waiver that will allow them to be investigated for sexual misconduct, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group reported.
Stanford Law School law school is the largest law school in the country, and it was named the #1 law school for the #3 most prominent law firms in the world by Forbes in 2018.
Loehman was named by a group of students as one of the “top 10 people to work on the intersection of legal education and gender inequality,” according to a post on the American Bar Association’s website.
The group wrote that he “has led efforts to advance the idea that the law is for everyone and has been instrumental in advancing the idea of a more just society.
We commend his leadership and wish him all the best for the future.”
Loehneman was accused by a female student of forcing her into an anal probe during an in-person session in the fall of 2017.
Stanford said that the investigation was “not credible” and that it is “reviewing its procedures.”
Loesman was not charged in the case, but the law school said he has been suspended for a year and will not be eligible to teach at the school in 2018 and 2019.
The Daily, however, reported that the association was planning to sue the school over its decision to suspend him.
Stanley Law School is a private institution, and the school is not required to comply with Title IX requirements of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The law schools website, however it stated that it will “exercise due diligence in all matters related to compliance with the laws relating to sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination.”
