As the opening paragraphs of the brief note, central to SALT’s mission is its commitment to making the legal profession more inclusive and reflective of the great diversity of this nation. SALT understands that the most effective way to make collegiate, graduate and professional academic programs more representative of our nation’s diverse populations is to utilize holistic admissions processes which incorporate race-consciousness as one of many factors.
The law firm of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP submitted the amicus brief on SALT’s behalf. Thank you to the firm and thank you to the Fisher Brief Committee – Michael Avery, Michael Rooke-Ley, Sylvia Law, Paula Johnson and Nareissa Smith. They worked very hard to shape the substance of our brief and guide the firm’s efforts. We are especially grateful for Michael Rooke-Ley’s work and leadership.
