Landmark Supreme Court Cases Webinars: University of CA Regents v. Bakke

Sat, Apr 8, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

In the wake of the Civil Rights movements of the 1950s and 60s, universities tried to address disparities in enrollment by race and ethnicity through various methods, including explicit quotas. Addressing the means by a diverse student body could be achieved, the court determined that quotas were not permissible, and that the rights of a white student had been violated by the University of California-Davis School of Medicine’s admissions policy. The decision did offer some guidance, however, on constitutionally acceptable methods for schools to assemble diverse student populations, although the issue of ‘affirmative action’ is still not completely settled even today.
