Events to unveil lawsuit briefs, amicus support

President Mary Sue Coleman will deliver the keynote address at lunch Feb. 17 during the annual meeting of the American Council on Education (ACE). Her address will focus on the affirmative action cases and preview the University and amicus (friend of the court) briefs to be filed Feb. 18 with the Supreme Court of the United States. A panel of college presidents will respond.

The University expects more than 50 briefs to be filed, and more than 200 organizations to sign on to the briefs, says Vice President and General Counsel Marvin Krislov.

Briefs will be filed on behalf of a wide array of organizations, including Fortune 500 corporations, former military leaders, labor unions, members of Congress, civil rights groups, law schools and legal associations, Asian/Pacific American groups, Jewish groups, social science organizations and researchers, the medical/health professions, several states, and numerous higher education groups, colleges and universities, Krislov says.

At a press conference to follow the lunch, representatives of several of the organizations filing briefs on the University's behalf will speak.

More information about the conference is available on the ACE website at .
