affirmative action case
Between the years 1950 and 1970, the University of Michigan Law School graduated 5,573 people. Of these 5,573 students, 30 were black, and none were Hispanic, Asian American, or Native American. However in 1966, an affirmative action policy was implemented in an effort to diversify the student body and to end discrimination in the admissions process. In 2000, the entering class of the law school was 28% minority students.
