Emory law professor accused of using racial slur in lecture

A law professor apologized for using a racial slur during a class lecture. According to the  university’s statement “offensive language was not part of the case law cited. The use of this — or any racial slur — in our community is unacceptable.”  James B. Hughes Jr., interim dean of the law school said that “the law school will design meaningful mandatory training for faculty members as well as staff and students and support a unity rally in the coming week to ‘help students show their support for a cohesive and mutually respectful Emory Law.’ ”  The AP article can be found at this link.
