Stanley Chess

Stanley Chess is an American legal commentator and former bar review course executive.

Chess was Editor-in-Chief of the "Cornell Daily Sun" during the 1968-1969 campus unrest. Following the takeover of Willard Straight Hall, Chess wrote an influential editorial entitled, "Friday Night - Ugly and Stupid" which called for the equal application of law to both black and white students following an episode where white students "joustled" then President James A. Perkins.
