It’s been more than three weeks since FIRE announced that Pace Law School finally recognized the Christian Law Students Association (CLSA). The Student Bar Association (SBA) had denied recognition to the group on the grounds that the blatantly Christian nature of the organization would be unwelcoming to non-Christians. Pace’s decision to reverse the SBA came after FIRE issued a press release explaining the importance of free association.
However, Pace’s legal counsel was set to review the CLSA constitution and has not yet made public its revisions. FIRE is concerned that any revisions may include significant changes to the religious character of the organization. But we won’t know until Pace announces its decision.
