Schedule | Speakers | Background

Welcome from the Symposium Editor.

Writing for the majority in the United States Supreme Court decision of Grutter v. Bollinger, Justice O’Connor stated: “We expect that 25 years from now the use of racial preferences [in admissions decisions] will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.”

The Ohio State Law Journal, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, the Center for Law, Policy and Social Science, the Kirwan Institute on Race and Ethnicity and Professor john a. powell invite you to join in the examination of both the legitimacy and accuracy of Justice O’Connor’s prediction and the identification of the practical realities of meeting her challenge. Throughout the weekend, we will have presentations, panel discussions, and receptions, with opportunities in between to greet your colleagues and meet new ones.
