[Past Event] – Breaking Down Harvard/UNC—What’s Next for Affirmative Action?

Date: October 04, 2023
Location: Virtual via Zoom
Time: 4:00-5:00 p.m. EDT / 1:00-2:00 p.m. PDT

This past summer, the Supreme Court issued its landmark decision in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard/UNC, overturning a decades-old ruling that upheld affirmative action.

With race-based college admissions now at an end, what is the fate of affirmative action in other arenas like government grants and contracting, K-12 education, and reparations policies?

Attendees will hear from expert panelists as they discuss the broader impact of the recent decision, including its implications for PLF’s case Coalition for TJ v. Fairfax School Board, a K-12 affirmative action case that PLF is asking the Supreme Court to hear in its upcoming term.

Speakers also will address steps colleges already are taking to circumvent the Supreme Court’s decision and how this could impact future litigation efforts.
