Boston University Law Student Government Association (SGA) encouraged its members to seek out school wellness resources if they are having trouble dealing with the Supreme Court cases decided on Friday. 

In an email sent to the future lawyers, obtained by Fox News Digital, the student board said, "As a reminder, BU also offers a number of wellness resources that are willing and able to help students navigate these times," referring to the law school's mental health resources listed on their website. 

The email went on to criticize the Supreme Court for ruling against race-based college admission practices, the Biden administration's student loan forgiveness plan, and for allowing a Christian web designer the right to deny web-hosting to same-sex couples. 

In reference to the court's decision on affirmative action, the group said, "[The assenting judges] went so far as to say that the race-based admission system uses race as a negative and operates it as a stereotype." It continued, "They may couch their opinion in legal jargon, but we all know what this opinion aims to do: advocate for a ‘colorblind’ admission process."

"However, as many of our students know and Justice Sotomayor says in her dissent, ‘ignoring race will not equalize a society that is racially unequal,'" it added

"These three decisions form part of a lengthy sequence of this court's ruling which steadily erodes the rights of marginalized communities and undermines the very diversity upon which our nation was built," the group concluded.  

Concerns over the directions of Law Schools across the country have risen. In March, the Stanford Law School students shouted down a presentation by US Fifth Circuit Appellate Judge Kyle Duncan. 

In October, Judge James Ho of the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit declared that he would no longer consider clerks that came from the Yale Law School. This came after over 100 students attempted to shut down a bipartisan panel on civil liberties. He called Yale a "closed and intolerant environment." 

In February 2022, Georgetown Law students demanded professor Ilya Shapiro be fired for stating that nominees for the supreme court should be based on merit and not on race.
