Constitution Day Panel Discussion: Grutter v. Bollinger
Audio recording of an online panel discussion with Benjamin Baum, Caroline Randall, Piér Quintana, Cesar Cervantes, Martha Franks, Guillermo Bleichmar, and Walter Sterling on September 16, 2020 as part of the Dean's Lecture & Concert Series. The Dean's Office provided this description of the event: "For our annual event recognizing Constitution Day, this Wednesday afternoon a panel of faculty and staff will lead a discussion on (excerpts from) the landmark Supreme Court case, Grutter v. Bollinger (2003), in which, writing for the majority, Sandra Day O'Connor articulates a constitutional framework for, and surveys public policy surrounding, considerations of race and student diversity in the context of college admissions. This case underlies the more recent rulings in Fisher v. University of Texas (2013, 2016). For those who wish to attend, you may find a review of encyclopedia entries or journalistic reporting on the case (and related cases such as Fisher) sufficient. But the entire case can be found here: https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/539/306 (among other places)."
