Yale Law School Yanks Stipends From Students Who Work For Christian Firms
[The Federalist] Several weeks ago, I wrote about the challenges of being a Christian and a conservative at Yale Law School. A few days ago, the law school decided to double down and prove my point.

After the Yale Federalist Society invited an attorney from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a prominent Christian legal group, to speak about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, conservative students faced backlash. Outlaws, the law school’s LGBTQ group, demanded that Yale Law School "clarify" its admissions policies for students who support ADF’s positions. Additionally, Outlaws insisted that students who work for religious or conservative public interest organizations such as ADF during their summers should not receive financial support from the law school.

On March 25, one month after the controversy, Yale Law School announced via email that it was extending its nondiscrimination policy to summer public interest fellowships, postgraduate public interest fellowships, and loan forgiveness for public interest careers. The school will no longer provide financial support for students and graduates who work at organizations that discriminate on the basis of "sexual orientation and gender identity and expression."

Yale based its decision on a unanimous recommendation from the school’s Public Interest Committee. The committee explained: "The logic of our broader recommendation is that Yale Law School does not and should not support discrimination against its own students, financially or otherwise. Obviously, the Law School cannot prohibit a student from working for an employer who discriminates, but that is not a reason why Yale Law School should bear any obligation to fund that work, particularly if that organization does not give equal employment opportunity to all of our students."

#1 Yale Law interns? This seems a perfect project: lay out how these changes a) are unconstitutional and b) are against federal regulations as recently clarified by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Cite legal precedents supporting your points.

#2 Yank all taxpayer monies from Yale. Cite a committee recommendation.
