哈佛大学录取歧视诉讼即将完毕

在针对哈佛大学录取制度中存在歧视的诉讼案双方将进行最后的陈述。

终结辩论定于星期五开始。这一诉讼案重新开启了全美对平权法案的辩论。

“公平招生”组织的学生表示,哈佛大学对亚裔入学申请者有更高的要求标准,并通过“个人评级”对他们进行歧视。

哈佛则反驳说,种族是其考虑的众多因素之一,只能帮助申请人获得成功的机会。

这一案件的庭审已经持续了三个星期,双方都请来学者、政策专家以及现任和前任哈佛大学的员工来支持他们的观点。

联邦法官将对此案做出裁决,但预计不会立即裁决。 无论结果如何,预计(不利的一方)都将继续提出上诉。

Trial Coming to Close in Harvard Bias Lawsuit

Both sides get one last chance to make their cases in a trial alleging discrimination in Harvard University's admissions system.

Closing arguments are set to begin Friday in a lawsuit that has reignited a national debate over affirmative action.

The group Students for Fair Admissions says Harvard holds Asian-American applicants to a higher standard and discriminates against them through a "personal rating."

Harvard counters that race is one of many factors it considers and can only help an applicant's chances of getting in.

The trial has lasted three weeks with both sides calling on academics, policy experts and current and former Harvard employees to bolster their cases.

A federal judge will decide the case but is not expected to rule immediately. The case is expected to be appealed either way.
