Student Organizations in Law Schools

Next week, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez. This case will decide whether a law school can require student organizations receiving funds from the school to adhere to the school's nondiscrimination policy. Since there are many different legal aspects to this case (38 amicus curiae briefs have been submitted), this could be one of the most important, and most interesting, decisions handed down this term. Could it be Justice Stevens' last hurrah?

For additional information on this case, see this article from the National Law Journal: http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1202447891647.
