    The U.S. Supreme Court's rollback of 45 years of precedent supporting affirmative in the recent Students for Fair Admissions decisions has undoubtedly impacted the national education landscape and the promise of higher education opportunity for many students. This panel will explore developments in education opportunity at the intersections of race, equity, and diversity, and discuss the viability of interventions that can deliver on the promise of equity of educational opportunity. The questions panelists will explore include:
    • What are the implications of the ruling for colleges, universities, and law schools?
    • What are some legally permissible best practices that promote diversity and higher education opportunity?
    • What implications may the ruling have for K-12 schools seeking to foster diversity and educational equity?
