Remember this piece, where I criticized Harvard Law School for excluding military recruiters from campus?

Well, it looks like there's at least one federal judge at least as angry as I've been -- but he's directing his wrath at Yale Law School, refusing to hire law clerks from that school until the policy changes.

This should really get the ball rolling. Federal clerkships are prestigious, and being excluded out of hand -- especially if the trend spreads -- should upset students (and law school administrators) pretty significantly; this is especially true if judges who are known as "feeders" (because they feed their clerks on to clerk for the Supreme Court) join in.

It is, of course, terribly unjust to current students who themselves oppose the policy . . . but it may be the only way to get the attention of the smug liberals who head up many of the "prestigious" law schools.
