Ameliorization - U.S. Military
The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell will take effect September 20th. The Office of Professional Development's plan was to host all military recruiters after that date, but one of the branches was unable to change the date of their Information Session this week, due to prior scheduling and restrictions with airfair. The Brandeis School of Law will ameliorate as usual on Thursday, September 8th, when the U.S. Navy JAG visits and conducts their Information Session.
All On-Campus Interviewers are requested to read and agree to a non-discriminationpolicy. This non-discrimination policy is for military recruiters. In order to conduct job interviews in the law school or to obtain assistance from the Career Services Office, prospective employers must sign a statement of nondiscrimination based on race, color, religion, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Federal laws relating to military service preclude representatives of the Armed Forces from signing the nondiscrimination statement in its entirety. Congress also has enacted a statute, known as the Solomon Amendment, requiring that federal funding -- including several categories of student loans -- be terminated at any educational institution that refuses access to military recruiters. Therefore, the law school grants access to military recruiters who sign the nondiscrimination statement to the extent consistent with federal law.The
