University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

With a national focus on the US Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action, UC Health will hold a grand rounds virtual session featuring keynote speaker Erwin Chemerinsky, J.D., dean and Jesse H. Choper distinguished professor of UC Berkeley School of Law. Dean Chemerinsky will provide an update on the legal landscape and his perspectives on affirmative action, which has been prohibited in the state of California since 1996 when Proposition 209 was passed.
