"Students at Harvard Law School plan to honor the Bronx public defender [Robin Steinberg] who was caught lying about her organization's role in an outrageous anti-cop rap video [Hands Up] ..." The New York Post, February 16, 2015. Here is the article.
Robin Steinberg is executive director of the Bronx Defenders. Currently she is serving a two-month suspension for an ethics violation.
She had attempted to cover up the group's participation in a video, funded by taxpayers. It depicted a uniformed police officer pointing a gun at those who had their hands up.
According to the Post, Steinberg will be among 50 female attorneys and policy makers who Harvard Law students celebrate as inspirational.
Reflection: Has ethics become an anachronism? Are points of law all that count? Perhaps the powers-that-be at Harvard and other law schools should parachute in a panel discussion on ethics.
The New York Post Editorial Board reports that the two Harvard Law School organizations planning for honor Robin Steinberg has cancelled that plan. Here is that article.
