*Although the United States Armed Forces have recently revised their employment policies and practices (specifically, through the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”), their policies continue to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. Current federal law, however, effectively prevents the Law School from applying its anti-discrimination policy to military recruiters, including those for the Judge Advocate General Corps. The fact that military recruiters are here in no way reflects the Law School’s endorsement of their discriminatory employment practices.
