The End of Affirmative Action? 

On October 10, 2012, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Fisher v. University of Texas.   In this case, the court will consider whether the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution permits the University of Texas to use a candidate’s race in its undergraduate admissions decision.  The court’s decision in this case is likely to have wide-ranging repercussions.  Professor Stephen M. Griffin, the Rutledge C. Clement Jr. Professor in Constitutional Law, will discuss the case and its implications.  Comments and questions led by Professor Catherine Hancock, the Geoffrey C. Bible & Murray H. Bring Professor of Constitutional Law, will follow.  All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
