Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

Students for Fair Admissions, a nonprofit, membership organization whose members include highly qualified students recently denied admission to schools including UNC-Chapel Hill, highly qualified students who plan to apply to schools such as UNC-Chapel Hill, and their parents. The lawsuit alleges that the University is not in compliance with the new Fisher strict scrutiny requirements. Students for Fair Admissions explains in its complaint that UNC has admitted in an amicus brief it submitted to the Supreme Court in the Fisher case that the school can maintain, and actually increase, racial diversity through race-neutral means if it ends its race-based affirmative action policies. Students for Fair Admissions argues that this compels the university to end its racial classifications and preferences and adopt some combination of race-neutral policies instead.
