A Christian student group will take the University of Iowa to court over a school policy that mandates that the group must allow leaders who do not conform to their beliefs.

Business Leaders in Christ filed a lawsuit against the university in 2017, claiming that their student group leadership rules unlawfully forced them to compromise their leadership standards.

Oral arguments will be heard in the case of BLinC v. University of Iowa in United States district court in Des Moines, Iowa, on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
