On the theory that all lawyers should have an interest in the composition of our profession (i.e., who goes in and who comes out of our law schools), a recent post here by Prof. Bainbridge tells us what the U.S. Civil Rights Commission thinks of current affirmative action trends in law school admission policies. The post provides a link to the full report of the Commission, but here is a quote from its Chairman:

"Race-based admissions have been found to harm minority law students by setting them up for failure.  Law schools that continue to use racial preferences despite this evidence should at least disclose the risks of academic mismatch to minority student applicants."
