Inside Higher Ed reports that New York Law School has been "placed on a list of higher education institutions that are iineligible for contracts and grants by reason of a determination by the Secretary of Defense that the institution prohibits or in effect prevents military recruiter access to the campus, students on campus or student directory information.'" According to the story, a Pentagon spokeswoman has also said that "two other law schools — Vermont Law School and William Mitchell College of Law, in St. Paul, Minn. — were also in violation of the Solomon amendment and faced the loss of federal funds." Yale Law School has also excluded military recruiters from campus but is protected by a court order.
HT: Paul Caron (twice in one day!).
Update: On further reflection, I believe each of these three law schools are stand alone law schools unattached to larger universities (unless I'm mistaken). As a result, the Government's action is narrowly focused on law schools and does not raise the issue of withholding funding for an entire university as a result of the law school's decisions. The article suggests that perhaps they were being picked-on because they were "little guys," but this may explain the pattern of those schools affected. (HT to Our Commenters for first raising this question).
