by Stephen R. McAllister, Simon A. Steel, M. Viola So, Rachel L. Ross, Edward Belotte, Michael E. Harris

In Students for Fair Admissions, Inc, v. President & Fellows of Harvard College, et al., the Supreme Court addressed whether (i) the Supreme Court should overrule Grutter v. Bollinger and hold that institutions of higher education cannot use race as a factor in admissions; and (ii) Harvard College is violating Title VI of the Civil Rights Act by penalizing Asian American applicants, engaging in racial balancing, overemphasizing race and rejecting workable race-neutral alternatives.  The LFAA submitted an amicus brief in support of Respondents.
