U. of S. C. ceases discrimination against religious student organizations in funding and works with CLS to create viewpoint neutral policies

The University of South Carolina, responding to a lawsuit filed by the Center, has lifted its viewpoint discriminatory restriction against granting funds to religious student organizations. This positive change protects the rights of the Christian Legal Society chapter at USC's law school as well as the rights of all other religious student organizations at the University.

Furthermore, the University has agreed to work with CLS to craft policies that protect against the threat of future viewpoint discrimination in funding, consistent with recommendations provided by Center attorneys.

View the press release on these welcome developments and the agreement between CLS and USC as well as other materials on this case.
