Law professor Marci Hamilton explains why the Supreme Court should, and likely will, reverse a lower court ruling holding that the Solomon Act is unconstitutional. The Solomon Act denies federal funds to colleges and universities that do not permit military recruiters on campus.
Hamilton’s legal analysis is sound, but I’m not sure I agree with her claim that when law schools allow big firm on campus they are abetting discriminators. Her concluding paragraph about the motivation of behind the challenge to the Solomon Act is worth considering:
Liberal law schools and their professors publicly disavow any negative attitude toward the military. But their hyper-legalistic arguments regarding the Solomon Amendment betray a more troubling truth.
