Maureen Mahoney—a member of the U-M defense team in Grutter v. Bollinger et al., the U.S. Supreme Court case that challenged the use of affirmative action in the University's Law School admission policies—will discuss the affirmative action cases at 4 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Power Center for the Performing Arts.

Mahoney was the primary author of the 50-page brief on behalf of U-M in which the University effectively demonstrated that the government has a "compelling interest in having an institution that is both academically excellent and racially diverse."

Mahoney is a partner in the Washington, D.C.. office of Latham and Watkins, where she leads the firm's appellate and constitutional practice.

Mahoney's lecture is part of the Mullin Welch Series, sponsored by the Center for the Education of Women. For more information, call (734) 998-7080.
