New York Bar Associations Call on Law Schools, Firms to ‘Ignore’ Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action Ruling

Leftist bar associations in New York are urging law schools and firms to “ignore” the United States Supreme Court’s recent ruling on racist affirmative action.

The Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard case has already become a trigger for woke organizations.

According to The Daily Wire, New York bar associations are urging law schools and law firms to bypass the high court’s decision.

Instead, they are being called on to continue using racial preferences to select candidates and students.

The American Bar Association (ABA), the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA), and the New York City Bar Association (NYCBA) have all called on schools and firms to ignore the ruling.

The bar associations advise schools and firms to use admissions and hiring methods that “appear” to be race-neutral but actually still rely on race for the process.

Researcher Renu Mukherjee explained how the bar associations are packaging the new recommendations in the wake of the SCOTUS decision on affirmative action.

Mukherjee explained what the NYSBA Task Force on Advancing Diversity wrote in a 93-page report following the high court’s decision on the issue.

The researcher noted:

“Law schools, for instance, are advised to continue granting admissions preferences to black and Hispanic applicants using methods that are race-neutral in theory but race-conscious in practice.”

Mukherjee added:

“Meanwhile, law firms are advised to simply continue their use of affirmative action; the bar associations suggest that because Students for Fair Admissions considered this policy only within the context of university admissions, the decision is inapplicable to employment.”

Race should now be evaluated as “a non-racial goal or value being pursued by the university,” the report stressed.

New admission plans, post-decision, should consider “low socioeconomic status, first-generation immigrant status, geographic location, or some kind of percentage plan.”

The Daily Wire noted:

Schools are also encouraged to end early admission policies to align with “broader institutional diversity and equity goals” as well as consider removing standardized testing measures like the LSAT from admission considerations.

Mukherjee was asked if available pipeline programs would be able to be taken advantage of by white male prospects.

The outlet noted:

When asked if some pipeline programs might not be available for use by a group like white males, Mukherjee told The Daily Wire that if they did take race into account they “would be illegal and thus face challenge.”

Mukherjee added that the programs should be “open to ALL students, not just blacks and Hispanics.”

The report went full “woke” status on pushing the pipeline programs.

The report stated:

“In contrast, pipeline programs that offer academic support, test prep, mentoring, and career development opportunities prepare marginalized students to go toe-to-toe with their better-resourced peers; they provide these students with a sense of agency and accountability over their futures.”
