IU Maurer School of Law professors to discuss affirmative action case

“The court’s decision to hear the case raises the possibility of an end to the consideration of race in public university admissions decisions,” said Dawn Johnsen, Walter W. Foskett Professor of Law. “In 2003, a majority of the court said that its holding in Grutter v. Bollinger, which upheld the inclusion of race as one among many factors to create a diverse student body, would last for 25 years.

Panelists include Maurer School of Law faculty members Johnsen, Jeannine Bell, Daniel Conkle and Luis Fuentes-Rohwer. Professor Kevin Brown will moderate the discussion.
