Earlier this month the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin. At issue is whether the Court’s decisions interpreting the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, including Grutter v. Bollinger, permit the University of Texas at Austin’s use of race in undergraduate admissions decisions. Come learn about the oral arguments, the case, and its possible implications.
