Attorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.

This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.

Tonight we discuss the topic of the rights of private clubs and their ability to limit their members.  Recently, the University of Alabama student senate killed a resolution supporting racial integration of fraternities and sororities on campus.  This is despite the fact several black women were offered sorority bids this past fall and a historically Jewish sorority elected its first black president.   Tune in as Sarah and Bennet discuss the legal quagmire surrounding a private club’s ability to discriminate based upon any criteria it chooses.
