This week on Law Talk with Epstein and Yoo, the Professors (moderated by Troy Senik) debate the debates, discuss how affirmative action has once again reared its ugly head, go over Obama’s immigration executive order and the Take Care clause, and commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Bork confirmation hearings by examining the fallout from that history-making moment. Oh, and the distinguished Professor Yoo reveals why no one has ever seen him the and Gangnam style guy in the same room.

    This EJHill special may get me banned in my native land.

    Berkley students may be different than my students, but I’d bet that if you asked them to be your background singers, they would totally do it.

    Grove City College does as well.

    Best podcast graphic ever. EJHill is truly an artist. I can’t wait to listen to it.

    Title is wrong. Should be “Gangnam”.

    Fire the clerk that proofed the brief.

    As always, I look forward to the episode.

    I thought I remembered there being at least one more. That’s why I didn’t limit my statement to two colleges. 😉 Those are three excellent colleges that share a commitment to conservatism and providing a high-quality classical liberal arts education.

    Musial – Donora.

    Arnold Palmer – Latrobe. Had you flown, you would have landed in his airport.

    I see gangnam has been corrected. As any schoolboy knows, “nam” means south and is cognate with nam in Vietnam and nan in Nanking and “nan” in numerous Japanese words like “nanbei” (South America). Koreans generally don’t use Chinese characters but if they did they would write 南.

    Hmph. I listened to K-Pop before K-Pop became a meme.

    I would think lots of religious colleges would not accept federal funds. I know that back in the early 80’s Bob Jones University gave up its tax exempt status rather than allow inter-racial dating, so I doubt they were taking other federal dollars. They recently started accepting South Carolina grants that go with students with decent high school grades but that probably still precludes any federal dollars…

    A good podcast as always. However, I was hoping we might hear something about Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley and Sons, the first-sale doctrine case. It’s been all over the Internet recently and could have ramifications even wider than Obamacare as far as I can tell. I hope John, Richard, and Troy get to it next time.

    Latrobe hasn’t been the home of Rolling Rock since 2006. Belgian In-Bev now owns it and it’s brewed in New Jersey.

    Christendom College in Front Royal, VA, does not use FAFSA or “participate in any Federal funding programs”.

    Professors,

    One question regarding the amicus statements by generals, etc: Did they articulate a basis for saying why they needed a person of a preferred race to have attended UT Austin rather then UTEP, Texas A&M, Texas Tech or any less selective school?

    I have previously noted the irony of the Ivy League amici whose own preferences are a key reason why any non-whites who would have gone to a lesser school like UT Austin do not.

    As Scalia said in Gruter, Michigan has not demonstrated any compelling state interest in having a law school, let lone a state one, let alone one deemed “elite” (assuming “elite” status would somehow be denied to a high performing school without preferences). Texas has not demonstrated similar things.
