Dec. 17 CCJ Town Hall: Fighting for Equal Protection

December 22, 2015

In this town hall, Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, takes a look at the oral arguments from two of the term’s most important cases—Fisher v. University of Texas and Evenwel v. Abbott.

In Fisher, the Court considers whether affirmative action in higher education can be maintained in its current form, or if it should finally be abandoned. The petitioners in Evenwel challenge the way most states calculate population when drawing political districts. 

Dr. Eastman is joined by Ilya Shapiro, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute.
