THE Colombian Law Review called on Columbia University to cancel exams in response to alleged trauma suffered by students after police removed a disruptive anti-Israel encampment at the Ivy League university.

The press release published by the Colombian Law Reviewwhich was published by The free beacon of Washingtonbegan: “As the board of directors of the student editors of the Colombian Law Review, we urge the law school to cancel exams and give all students passing grades for their work throughout the semester. Conversely, we believe that the Law School is at the very least respecting the community’s overwhelming call for mandatory pass/fail during this horrible time for our campus.
