George Mason Law School Faculty & Students File Brief with Supreme Court Supporting Military Recruitment on Campus

A number of members of the George Mason community have filed a brief amicus curiae with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the petitioner (Rumsfeld) in the case of Rumsfeld v. F.A.I.R. Oral arguments are scheduled for December 6, 2005.

The brief supports the constitutionality of the Solomon Amendment, a federal statute that withholds federal monies from law schools (and their parent institutions) if the law schools don't give military recruiters the same opportunities that other prospective employers are given to participate in law school job fairs or on-campus interview days with law students. Following is a Q&A on the brief.
