I personally felt it's fine because we do illegal stuff all the time and thought it fell in the category of stuff no one would rally care about. But, if other people are genuinely uncomfortably with it, then I guess it's not fair to put someone in that position
I'm not saying it's a great idea to do it- it isn't. I'm just saying that from a practical perspective no prosecutor is likely going to want to put a beloved HLS professor in jail on contempt for trying to share a trial with his class
If we were in-person and the professor wanted to celebrate the last day with champagne. And one person was 20 years old. I feel like no one would be having any moral issues. Where does this situation stand with respect to something like that?
