First Monday in October

The new Supreme Court term will begin Monday October 3, 2022, and the Court will again be open to the public. The Court has an active term ahead, particularly with two controversial affirmative action cases on the docket, both to be argued on October 31st.  The Harvard College case and the University of North Carolina case will look at whether these institutions may use race as a factor in admissions and whether their efforts at racial balancing violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
