If Sessions has his way, they'll be litigating on the other side.

Can't they still offer transactional clinics with live clients?

Jason, They can still offer litigation clinics. They just can't run a public interest law firm under the UNC name any longer. They can even start a civil rights clinic. The disinformation campaign against this proposal was disgraceful.

Sweet, sweet, delicious liberal tears.

You will NOT wage political war against the state with the imprimatur of the university. Now sit down and shut up.

Be thankful you're still permitted to indoctrinate sheep... for now.

If they'd genuinely run a civil rights clinic, they'd probably be ok. The problem is, they ran an "only the civil rights we happen to like" clinic.

Perhaps it ought to be left to North Carolina voters as to what they want to fund?
