Fisher v. University of Texas
Today in the Community we are discussing affirmative action in the context of the petition for certiorari in Fisher v. University of Texas. This is our weekly topic of special interest to law students, sponsored by Bloomberg Law.
Steve Wermiel has a terrific introduction to the case and how it relates to the Court’s affirmative action jurisprudence here. Affirmative action – and more broadly the use of race in government decision making – is an issue about which many people have strong feelings, personally and morally. At SCOTUSblog, we’re concerned with how the Supreme Court should and will address the issue under the Fourteenth Amendment. We hope you will participate.
