Pace Law School in White Plains, New York, is being asked to reverse its decision to deny recognition to a campus Christian student group. According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, the school refuses to give the Christian Legal Society chapter official status, even after “remarkable concessions” by the faith-based group.

The Student Bar Association at Pace Law School in White Plains has denied official recognition to the campus chapter of the Christian Legal Society. The move comes despite the fact that the Christian group added “sexual orientation” to a non-discrimination clause in its constitution and opened membership to non-Christians.

Greg Lukianoff is president of the academic freedom and individual rights watchdog group, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). He says his organization is calling on Pace officials to recognize the Christian Legal Society, which has, he notes, made “remarkable concessions” in order to conform to the school’s non-discrimination policies.
