Smith 1993): This case involved mandatory student fees being
spent on various approved student political groups (i.e., College Republicans) for their partisan activities. The CA. Ct. directly applied Abood and Keller. It held that university can require such mandatory student fees because the compelling interest—the educational benefits to students from such groups—outweighed individual First Am. rights. But the student fees could not be spent on lobbying the city counsel, etc., since these do not directly
relate to the educational benefits of students.
