For your Discussion Essay: Take a Position For or Against Affirmative Action:
Research and summarize the essential requirements of affirmative action. Where, how, and why is it applied?
Consider the pros and cons of affirmative action based on your review of the required readings and your own research. Include case law in your analysis.
Take a position either pro or against continuation of affirmative action as a legal requirement of covered employers and universities. Present your position and discuss your reasons for your position. This should be more than just a personal opinion. Support your analysis with examples, which can include objective personal experience and observations.
