GW to Preview Supreme Court Affirmative Action Case
Monday, September 24, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
GW To Hold Program on Major Supreme Court Affirmative Action Case
On Monday September 24 at 4pm at the School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA) in the Jack Morton auditorium (21st & H Streets NW), The George Washington University will hold a forum to discuss the affirmative action case of Fisher v. University of Texas, which will be argued in the Supreme Court on October 10th. The Court will be examining efforts made by higher education institutions to improve diversity through race-conscious admissions policies for the first time since it considered two cases from the University of Michigan in 2003.
The program will feature opening remarks by University Provost Steven Lerman that will explain what is at stake, not only for public universities like Texas, but private ones such as GW. The discussion will be among four lawyers who filed significant briefs in the case and moderated by GW Law School constitutional law professor Christopher Bracey. If time allows, panelists will entertain questions from the audience.
Additional information about the program, along with copies of the briefs of the parties to the case, and those submitted by the panelists and the Obama Administration, can be viewed at http://www.law.gwu.edu/News/2012-2013Events/Pages/Fisher.aspx.
Those without tickets will be admitted on a space available basis after 3:45 PM.
A reception will follow on the second floor of SMPA.
