Harvard Law ’75 v. Harvard Law ’91
Democrats, Republicans and Independents stood side by side at Harvard Law School on Nov. 6 to follow the presidential election results at a party organized by the Dean of Students Office.
For the first time in the history of U.S. presidential elections, both candidates of the major parties were graduates of Harvard Law School: Mitt Romney J.D./M.B.A. ’75 and Barack Obama ’91.
Karl Sigwarth ’14, sporting an HLS Republicans T-shirt, praised the law school as a place where competing viewpoints are embraced. “You are able to have an exchange of ideas that, while it’s animated sometimes, at the end of the day, is still very respectful, and you still realize that you are learning from each other, and that’s great.”
