Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach at Harvard this winter

The Supreme Court nominee will not return to Harvard Law School in January.

"Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered," Associate Dean and Dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs, Catherine Claypoole, wrote in an email, according to the Crimson.

The allegations facing Kavanaugh have been a contentious issue at Harvard, where he has taught law students for 10 years. The subjects of his classes ranged from the separation of powers to the Supreme Court – the subject of the course he’s no longer teaching. Though Law School Dean John Manning has remained largely silent throughout the controversy, law students and alumni have been vocal in their desire to see Kavanaugh investigated and potentially prohibited from teaching on campus, according to the Crimson.
