From the cited: "[T]he LGBTQ+ Rights Clinic...'allows our students the chance to learn firsthand how law and the work of lawyers can further respect for individual dignity.'" Certainly practical experience can be beneficial for advancement in any endeavor. "Harvard, Cornell, Emory, and UCLA...have developed LGBTQ+ law clinics." None of these are Catholic institutions. Clearly Gonzaga students can acquire all the firsthand experience they need through a formal exchange program with these schools.
