Scholarly Discussion on Fisher v. University of Texas

The United States Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in the affirmative action case of Fisher v. University of Texas on October 10, having granted certiorari from the Fifth Circuit's decision upholding the UT plan and perhaps informed by Judge Edith Jones' stinging dissent from the denial of en banc review, as we discussed.

The Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc Roundtable has just published a series of relatively brief articles on the case: 

Girardeau A. Spann, Fisher v. Grutter

James F. Blumstein, Grutter and Fisher: A Reassessment and a Preview

Vikram David Amar, Is Honesty the Best (Judicial) Policy in Affirmative Action Cases? Fisher v. University of Texas Gives the Court (Yet) Another Chance to Say Yes

Gerald Torres, Fisher v. University of Texas: Living in the Dwindling Shadow of LBJ’s America

Tomiko Brown-Nagin, The Diversity Paradox: Judicial Review in an Age of Demographic and Educational Change

Lawreview-2011

Each of these articles is worth a read and the law review editors promise further exchange among the authors.
