1969.08.07: Legal aid offered in case of government subpoena (UCLA Daily Bruin)

UCLA Daily Bruin, August 7, 1969

Sounding Board
Legal aid offered in case of government subpoena

(Editor’s note: This is an open letter to Chancellor Charles E. Young.)

Dear Chancellor Young:

The undersigned members of the law school faculty support the recommendation of the Academic Senate Committee on Academic Freedom that you decline compliance with requests for information concerning the political affiliations and beliefs of students at least until there has been, in each case, an authoritative judicial determination of the legality of the request. 

As an indication of our concern with this problem, we offer to provide you with all necessary legal services in seeking and obtaining a determination concerning any requests for information that you may receive.

The chilling effect of governmental requests for information concerning student political activities upon the freedom of inquiry makes inappropriate, we think, that members of the academic community who are also lawyers should volunteer their services.
