Brianna L. Hartley A. NAME OF CASE MCLAURIN v. OKLAHOMA STATE REGENTS SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES (1950) 339 U.S. 637 B. FACTS G.W. McLaurin, a negro citizen of Oklahoma, wanted t pursue a PhD in Education at the University of Oklahoma; however, a state law made it a crime to operate, teach or attend a school in which African Americans and whites were enrolled or taught together. Therefore, after being denied admission Maclaurin sued, won the case, and was admitted, but enrolled on a “segregated basis.” C. ISSUE Could the University of Oklahoma treat a student of color any differently then a white student? D. HOLDING No, they had to treat them equally. E. RATIONALE The supreme court held that a public institution of higher learning provide different treatment of a student based on race. By treating a student of color differently they would be depriving the student of their fourth amendment right of equal protection.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
