Media consults Mishell Kneeland concerning DOJ’s possible shift on Affirmative Action in College Admissions

Various media outlets have quoted Mishell Kneeland, a partner in Culhane Meadows’ Austin office and a former assistant attorney general in Texas, regarding the impact of the DOJ’s possible policy shift on college admissions policies under the Trump Administration.

The recent New York Times report of an internal memorandum by the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division about a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions” has renewed discussions about whether race-based admission standards at the University of Texas and other colleges will withstand future legal challenges.
