Guest Post: Letter in Support of Harold Koh

Together with others, we have helped to coordinate a Letter in Support of Harold Koh in response to a petition at NYU which questions his qualifications to teach as a human rights law professor in light of his government service. The Letter in Support of Harold, which is available here, has been signed by over 400 750 individuals, and is now publicly available. It also provides a link for anyone else who would like to be added to the list.
