Federal Laws

The Solomon Amendment

10 U.S.C. 983 ; 32 CFR 216.1 et seq.

The Solomon Amendment was consolidated and codified at 10 U.S.C. § 983 pursuant to Pub. L. No. 106-65, 113 Stat. 512 (1999), § 549 (Recodification and consolidation of statutes denying Federal grants and contracts by certain departments and agencies to institutions of higher education that prohibit Senior ROTC units or military recruiting on campus).

The Solomon Amendment, except as noted on the above linked page, allows federal funding for an educational institution to be cut if that institution has a policy or practice that prohibits military recruiting on campus, or prohibits access to student directory information for the same purpose, or maintains an anti-ROTC policy.

The Law School Career and Professional Development Director is responsible for ensuring equal access to the military at Career Fairs, interviews and other professional development activities.
