Funding conditions are always complicated -- is this a Finley or a
Velazquez situation? -- but let's think about this as a (not very)
straightforward First Amendment question.
The law schools argue that they are applying rules neutrally to the
military and to everyone else. But "neutrality" hides a multitude of
sin. If we are talking about a state university, would the practice of
admitting recruiters onto campus create a Rosenberger forum?
If we are talking about a private university, is there a compelling state
interest in recruiting college and law school graduates for military
service sufficient to overcome the universities' negative association rights?
