In this episode, we discuss the recent US Supreme Court ruling in the Students for Fair Admissions Inc.'s lawsuits against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina, which challenged the constitutionality of their race conscious admission policies. We'll consider the potential implications across multiple settings, from university admissions policies, to workplace and other DEI programs.

Bill Rhodes, a Partner in Ballard Spahr’s Public Finance Group and Leader of the firm’s Education Industry Team, hosts the discussion. Bill is joined by Brian Pedrow, a Partner in our Labor and Employment Group, and Co-Leader of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Counseling Team; Dee Spagnuolo, a Partner in our White Collar Defense and Internal Investigations Group, and Co-Leader of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Counseling Team; and Elizabeth Wingfield, an Associate in our Litigation Department.
