Affirmative Action

Speaker: Adam Mortara, Partner, Bartlit Beck law firm and Lecturer, University of Chicago Law School

Speaker: Neal Katyal, Partner, Hogan Lavells Law Firm; Professor of Law, Georgetown University

Moderator: Dan Benjamin , Director, John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, Dartmouth College

Most U.S. colleges are implementing special Affirmative Action admission policies where academic achievement is only one factor, designed to generate a student body with more economic, racial, sexual, and global diversity. They claim their broader student diversity pool results in enhanced multicultural understanding and critical thinking. Opponents of these policies claim they unfairly discriminate against applicants with better academic qualifications, and thus are a violation of civil rights laws. Several Asian-American students among this group have just sued Harvard, alleging racial discrimination. What are the legal merits of each position?


These live streamed presentations from Dartmouth College are sponsored by the

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Kentucky.
