Faculty Statement Regarding Rule of Law

The faculty of the Washburn University School of Law condemns the assault on the Capitol building as a dangerous attack on American democracy. As lawyers and legal educators, we value the Constitution and the rule of law and condemn violent attacks on either. We also condemn White supremacy wherever it occurs. We support and respect the decisions of the many election officials and judges who have found no evidence of fraud during the 2020 election. We pledge to continue to write, speak, and act to promote justice in our community and around our country. [January 7, 2021]
