In a case that many expect to go to the Supreme Court and potentially redefine affirmative action law, Asian-American students allege that Harvard University’s racial preferences discriminate against them. Similar issues are raised by the effort to change the selection process for New York City’s nationally esteemed “specialized high schools,” which are over 60% Asian. Can the strict admission requirements of these elite institutions be reconciled with current diversity policies? And does it matter if those impacted are themselves members of a historically underrepresented minority group?
The speakers will analyze these questions against the backdrop of Supreme Court precedent.
CLE: 1 credit in New York’s “Diversity, inclusion and elimination of bias” requirement will be awarded.
