Ronak Rana Section 7 Missouri ex rel. Gaines v. Canada, Registrar of the University of Missouri, et. al. 305 U.S. 337 (1938) FACTS : Lloyd Gaines, a black man in the state of Missouri, was denied admission to the [all-white] Missouri State University Law School because of his race. The state is supposed to provide separate but equal-education schools for whites and Negros. They are to either allow Negros to attend white schools or provide a separate school just for Negros. Because of this denial due to race, Gaines sought for a mandamus in the State Courts of Missouri but was denied by the courts. ISSUE : Is it Constitutional for the State University of Missouri to deny admission to an all-white law school to a black man, even though there is no black law school in the state, and even though they offered to pay the tuition of an out-o f-state law school and violate the separate but equal clause in Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States?
