Join Husch Blackwell education attorneys and a representative from the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS) for a discussion on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College and Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. University of North Carolina. The decision holds that race-conscious admissions practices at colleges and universities are prohibited by the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

This webinar will discuss the background of the cases, the high court's reasoning in invalidating the use of race-conscious admissions procedures, and the possible effect of the decisions on public school districts. The presenters will also share practical tips for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in a lawful manner.
