It was 1962, and a Jesuit priest rose to speak to a group of first-year students at Georgetown Law School’s night program. He wasn’t there to lecture on the law but to tout an overseas Catholic charity. As the priest began his talk he was interrupted by a young law student named Philip Hirschkop, who was making a noisy exit from the room.

“You’re disrupting the class,” the priest told Hirschkop, according to another student in attendance that day. “It’s impolite to me as your speaker, and I want you to go directly to the dean.”
