Nick Wallace Biography
Who is Nick Wallace?
Nick Wallace is a master’s student in environment and resources and JD. whose future was starting to look bleak after he tested the limits of free speech on campus. Wallace’s Stanford Law diploma was put on hold, meaning he may not be able to sit for the bar exam as planned this summer, as the Stanford Law School junior sent an email satirical to a student distribution list reserved for political discussion and comment.
On it was a flier mocking the Federalist Society, a conservative organization.
The limits of free speech have become an increasingly important challenge for both conservatives and liberals. During Memorial Day weekend, a joke by journalist Ken Klippenstein led to his being fired from The Intercept. In other cases, various people have tried to pass off hate speech as freedom of expression.

Nick Wallace’s Student
According to a profile on Stanford’s website, Nicholas N Wallace is studying in Emmett’s Interdisciplinary Program, the profile says.
The third-year law student was reportedly hoping to take the Michigan bar exam this summer, but he won’t be able to do so as the bar requires students to submit their degrees. Stanford also lists Wallace as a “Public Interest Fellows Class 2021.”
That program is intended to recognize students who plan to pursue a career in public service.
According to that website, Wallace was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 2010, he graduated from the University of Washington with a BA. While in college, Wallace also served as an economics and accounting tutor at the school’s academic support center. After graduation, Wallace first worked as a paralegal at a Seattle law firm, before working in journalism. He then he came to Stanford to get the joint MS-JD degree.

We also found a LinkedIn profile that corroborates those facts.
Nick Wallace’s Stanford Law
The biggest complaint many have is with social media itself. Conservatives constantly lament that social media limits freedom of expression.
Instead of studying for the finals and preparing for the bar, Wallace found himself fighting for his future with a digital flyer that he claimed was meant simply to poke fun at FedSoc. “My concern now is that different university students are going to see what is happening to me and are hesitant to express their opinions on controversial political issues,” he told a news conference.
“So I’m going to continue to prevent this in the hope that Stanford will repair their course so that no student is subjected to this type of remedy once.”
The problem arose from a flyer he posted on January 25.
The flyer titled “The Originalist Case to Incite Insurrection” was intended to mock FedSoc for failing to condemn the January 6 insurrection on Capitol Hill.
The flyer said the event was being hosted by Stanford’s FedSoc and that Senator Joshua Hawley and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton would attend.
That led to an unidentified student filing a complaint, who said:
“Nowhere in his email, nor in his flyer, did Wallace clarify that these identification representations have been false.” The complaint added that the flyer “defamed” the Stanford Federalist Society, causing “damage” to the group of students and the “individual reputation” of the officers.
The principals responded by opening an investigation into the case, initially putting Wallace’s graduation on hold. On May 27, he received a formal complaint for “a possible violation of the Core Standard,” the school’s code of conduct.
