Workshop 2

UNC and Harvard U:  Déjà vu of Fisher or Adieu to Affirmative Action?
Marilynn Schuyler (Schuyler Affirmative Action), Dean Sparlin (Sparlin Law), Matt Camardella (Jackson Lewis) 

The Supreme Court will soon consider two cases challenging the consideration of race in college admissions, which the Court previously approved in Fisher.  The Harvard case tests affirmative action at private institutions, while the University of North Carolina case arises in a public setting.  We will talk about the issues, the stakes, and the potential outcomes.  We will also discuss options for advancing diversity if Fisher is reversed.
