Dukes for Life at James Madison University
In 2010, ADF learned that James Madison University required a 48-hour pre-registration with the school for any “Free Speech and Peaceful Assemblies.” On behalf of student organization Dukes for Life, an ADF allied attorney sent a letter requesting that the university evaluate its policies. ADF followed up with the Virginia Attorney General’s office and coordinated with FIRE to pursue the matter. In September 2011, the University changed its policy.
