    With race conscious admission programs back in the news as the Harvard and UNC cases wind their way through the courts, this panel seeks to offer a dialogue on the state of race conscious admission and potential ramifications that may result from any changes to existing case law. The time for law schools to begin planning for the future is now, rather than waiting until the courts have spoken. To this end, a panel of experts will look at the current legal landscape and offer their thoughts on what the courts may do with these pending cases, examine a successful example of an undergraduate university that has made tremendous efforts in achieving more diversity on campus, and offer suggested best practices for law schools that will both enhance diversity as well as anticipate potential changes in the law.
