Supreme Court Update

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION CHALLENGE!

The case of Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. Harvard involves a challenge to affirmative action in college admissions.  SFFA alleges that Asian applicants are admitted at a far lower rate than they should be, based on their "academic index."  Trial is set for October 2018.

Background:

On June 23, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision in Fisher v. University of Texas, upholding the University of Texas’s consideration of racial diversity in its admissions process. In a 4-3 decision, the Court held that carefully crafted admissions policies that consider racial diversity as one factor in creating a well-rounded student body are constitutional under the Equal Protection Clause.

Marilynn Schuyler coordinated the attorneys from the American Association for Access, Equity, and Diversity who co-wrote two Amicus Curiae briefs filed on behalf of the University of Texas.
