    October, 1988 Dear Prospective Employer: We are please to introduce our minority law students who are listed in this directory for your hiring consideration. The University of Georgia School of Law is committed to increasing the number of those who traditionally have been under-represented in the legal profession. Obviously, a correlative commitment is needed by the public and private law sector if this goal of increasing the membership of minorities in the bar is to be attained. . . . We welcome your interest in our minority law students and hope you will join us in our efforts to achieve a qualified, proficient and diverse legal community. Sincerely, C. Ronald Ellington Dea

    I Will Not Sit Idly By While My Future is Determined: The Response of the University of Michigan Black Law Students\u27 Alliance to \u3cem\u3eGrutter V. Bollinger, Et Al.\u3c/em\u3e

    Back in 1998, the Michigan Journal of Gender & Law expressed support for the University of Michigan Law School\u27s defense of its affirmative action policy, which is at controversy in Grutter v. Bollinger. Today, as in 1998, [W]e certainly do not believe the Law School admissions policy truly addresses the inequalities within our law school and the legal profession generally. Legal education is unfortunately not a bastion of diversity. Women and students of color struggle to be heard and seen, and to achieve equal representation in both the study and practice of law. Without active efforts, we cannot create a society with equal opportunity for people of different races, genders, and sexual orientations. We strive for such a reality, and we hope that the Law School will not be prohibited from trying to move us there. Diversity is more than a method of enhancing the intellectual experience of law students or a narrow manifestation of \u27fairness\u27 which should be protected; it is justice that the Law School, its faculty, and its students are affirmatively obligated to seek out. Now, three years later, the validity of the Law School\u27s affirmative action policy still hangs in the balance. Unfortunately, the most recent decision in the matter was not favorable for supporters of affirmative action. Now more than ever, the Michigan Journal of Gender & Law stands by the Law School and its policies. As a journal, however, we also are committed to providing a forum for the discussion of all views, regardless of whether they comport with our own. Accordingly, we solicited responses to the District Court\u27s Grutter opinion from the Michigan Law School community. The Black Law Students\u27 Alliance ( BLSA ) submitted the following press release and amicus brief. Although we would prefer to publish a range of opinions on the issue, BLSA is the only entity that submitted a response piece to us for publication. The Michigan Journal of Gender & Law remains committed to providing a forum in which all voices are heard-herein is BLSA\u27s voice
