High Court to Hear Case on Recruiting by Military
Argument set for next week; broad implications are seen for academic freedom
When the Air Force came to Harvard Law School in October to recruit students for its Judge Advocate General's Corps, Adam R. Sorkin, a second-year student, signed up for an interview.
Mr. Sorkin, who is gay, knew he would be turned down for the job under the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. But he went anyway, to argue for an end to the ban on homosexuals in the armed services.
