Check out the Fisher symposium over at SCOTUSblog
For the past few days, SCOTUSblog has been running a very interesting symposium on Fisher v. University of Texas. Today, long-time PLF friend, Roger Clegg, offers this excellent contribution. In addition to Roger’s excellent submission, UCLA Professor Richard Sander, another friend of PLF, discusses mismatch theory and offers some suggestions to the Court. I also reccommend reading the submission from Vikram Amar. Professor Amar, while he supports race-based admissions, generally concedes that Grutter fails to provide clarity in this area of the law, and hopes that Fisher will change that. There are many more worthwhile contributions, and more to come.
