Brief For Students and Alumni Of Harvard College As Amici Curiae In Support Of Respondent Who Support Holistic Admissions

August 1, 2022

The groups, Advancing Justice affiliation, The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Arnold & Porter, and Lawyers for Civil Rights filed the brief

The Civil Rights groups filed the amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Harvard’s race-conscious admissions policy. 

The brief, filed on behalf of a group of Harvard students and alumni, is in support of the respondents who support holistic admissions in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, which was previously consolidated with Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Together, these cases are poised to determine the future of America’s affirmative action policies in both public and private universities, with potential implications in other contexts as well.
