Georgia law schools will see a significant impact from the affirmative action decision

While some Georgia law schools say they have not used race as a determining factor in admissions, observers said the US Supreme Court’s recent affirmative action ruling will still have a significant impact on all schools in the state. An official said it made him “deeply concerned” about the impact.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 29, 6-3 in Students for Fair Admissions vs. University of North Carolina and Students for Fair Admissions vs. President and Fellows of Harvard College, that the Racially Aware Admissions Guidelines from Harvard and the UNC violate the Equal Safeguard Clause of the 14th Amendment and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
