1. Her Record on the Military
As dean of Harvard Law School, Kagan praised the university’s decision to ban military recruiters from Harvard’s campus over the military’s ban on openly gay service members. “This return to our prior policy will allow [the Office of Career Services] to enforce the law school's policy of nondiscrimination without exception, including to the military services," Kagan wrote. "I am gratified by this result, and I look forward to the time when all law students will have the opportunity to pursue any legal career they desire.” However, the United States Supreme Court ruled unanimously against the decision, rejecting the school’s argument that being forced to allow the recruiters on campus violated their First Amendment rights.
