The Future of Affirmative Action after Fisher

October 31, 2013
11:45 AM - 1:45 PM
American University Washington College of Law
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20016
Room 603


Please join us for a lunchtime discussion on the implications of the Supreme Court's decision in Fisher, whether there is a continued need for race-based affirmative action measures in admission policies, and whether such measures, in practice, help or hurt the groups they are intended to protect. Our speakers will also discuss possible policy alternatives that could effectively and constitutionally address racial disparities in higher education admissions. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and receive responses.

Presented by WCL Chapter of the American Constitution Society and the WCL Chapter of the Federalist Society
