Queer Law Students Want to Kick the Military Off Campus
Queer Law Students Against Military Recruiting
Queer law student groups from UC Berkeley, Golden Gate University, UC Hastings, New College, Santa Clara and the University of San Francisco, terming themselves the Coalition of Queer Law Student Associations (CQLSA), are protesting the military recruitment at the 21st Annual Northern California Public Interest/Public Sector (PI/PS) Legal Careers Day. The event, an all-day career fair for public interest oriented law students hosted by the Public Interest Clearinghouse and nine Northern California law schools, is scheduled for Saturday, February 12th at UC Hasting College of the Law. The protest challenges the decision of organizers of PI/PS day to allow the military to recruit at the event despite the recent Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in Fair v. Rumsfeld that universities have a First Amendment right to bar military recruiters from their campuses to protest the Defense Department's policy of excluding gay people from military service
The protest will be held February 12th, 2005 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. at UC Hastings College of the Law on February 12, 205. Members of all local queer law student groups will participate. CQLSA is also forming a joint action plan to eliminate military recruitment at PI/PS Day and are garnering statements of support for their efforts from local bar associations, LGBT organizations and public interest law firms.
