Oral arguments are in the books and the Supreme Court's decision in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin is only months away. How will the court decide? Will it be a narrow ruling? What could this mean for the future of race-conscious admissions policies? The Program in Public Law, the American Constitution Society, and Duke Law ACLU host Professor Neil Siegel, director of the Program in Public Law, and Professor Guy Charles, founding director of the Duke Law Center on Law, Race, and Politics, for a discussion of these questions and the Court's affirmative action doctrine generally.
