Neal Katyal and Randy Barnett talked about the Supreme Court’s 1978 decision in Regents of the University of California v. Bakke. The landmark case concerns a medical school applicant who claimed he was rejected in favor of less qualified minority applicants. The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of affirmative action while rejecting the university’s quotas. Mr. Katyal was the acting solicitor general in the Obama administration and has argued 37 cases before the Court. Law Professor Barnett is the director of Georgetown University’s Center for the Constitution.

The program began a CBS newscast clip of reaction to the Court’s decision in the case. Other clips include the Library of Congress' Ryan Reft explaining one of Justice Thurgood Marshall’s first civil rights cases and his ideas to change the way the NAACP fought for equal rights for African Americans and a portion of oral argument in the case. close
