Future lawyers speak out against Amendment One

In case you missed it, the students at Campbell University Law School (who, ironically enough, study in a building supported by Art Pope) have offically weighed in against the marriage discrimination amendment. Here’s an excerpt:

“WHEREAS, Amendment One, if approved by a majority of voters, will void the benefits of domestic partner registries currently offered by local municipalities and cities throughout North Carolina to same sex and opposite sex partners who are in committed, long term relationships but who are unable to marry or otherwise have not married.”

Here’s a link to the actual resolution:  http://pulse.ncpolicywatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Amendment-One-Resolution.pdf

    Lovers of Justice, Rob, Chris, Sarah, Greg,

    Why do you protest Amendment One and not address the violation of trust by the NC Democrat Party in using contributions to keep an employee silent ? Oh, if this had been a member of the Republican Party, the articles would be too many to count. Where any of you aware of the story and remained silent ? Do you think there are major newspapers in NC that had been told but did nothing?

    Your readers would like to know.

    Mr. Schofield: Thank you for posting news about the Campbell Law Student Resolution. I am a proud supporter of the student voice against Amendment One. However, I do not like how you characterized our school as being supported by Art Pope. I have met Mr. Pope and went to school with his daughter. I don’t know Mr. Pope well, but I know many people in Raleigh do not like his politics. However, Campbell Law School probably has more support and received more money from many more moderate people. Last semester I worked in the law school’s Goodmon Legal Clinic, and our director told us that Jim and Barbara Goodmon gave a million dollars to the law school. We have lots of voices at Campbell Law School. Some, like mine, are progressive, and some are more conservative. Sometimes we argue, but the students generally get along with each other. I like the diversity of opinion. Isn’t that what a good law school should be promoting?
