Yale alumni gather in front of the Yale Club to voice their opposition to the confirmation of Republican Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh - who received degrees from Yale and taught at Harvard Law School - in New York City, US, October 2, 2018.

"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law, and that obstructive, inappropriate behavior will be rewarded", the letter reads.

Besides Harvard, students and faculty at Yale Law School have also expressed concerns about Kavanaugh, both on campus in CT and in Washington. "HLS would be tarnished to have him on campus in any position of authority".

Harvard must be relieved that he withdrew instead of them having to fire him, since reportedly over 800 Harvard Law graduates have signed a letter calling on the school to dump Kavanaugh.

"Will Harvard Law School take seriously the credible allegation of Kavanaugh's sexual assault against a young woman before he is allowed to continue teaching young women?" wrote the students.

Kavanaugh's nomination now languishes in limbo as the Senate waits for the results of the limited, one-week FBI investigation authorized last Friday. It was not immediately clear if Kavanaugh dropped out due to anticipation that he would be serving on the Supreme Court.
