Celebrate the Constitution of the United States on Monday, Sept. 17, by attending a discussion of the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case Fisher v. University of Texas, concerning the affirmative action admissions policy of the University of Texas at Austin. This year’s panel discussion will include John Charles “Jack” Boger ’74, dean of UNC School of Law and Wade Edwards Distinguished Professor of Law; Charles Edward Daye, Henry Brandis Professor of Law and Deputy Director of the UNC Center for Civil Rights; and Mark Dorosin, Senior Managing Attorney, and Elizabeth M. Haddix, staff attorney, at the UNC Center for Civil Rights.
Boger, Dorosin and Haddix are the co-authors of an amicus brief – featuring research by Daye and others – on the Texas v. Fisher case, delivered to the U.S. Supreme Court on August 8, 2012, on behalf of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Oct. 10 on whether race-conscious admissions practices at the University of Texas violate the Constitution.
Light refreshments will be served.
