The Gratz v. Bollinger and Grutter v. Bollinger are both two famous cases whereby petitioners have made a file against The University of Michigan Law School. The two cases address the issue of the university’s unfair treatment towards them simply because of their race. This surfaced the subject of racism and discrimination. The University of Michigan Law School likes to change their academic guidelines from time to time. During Gratz’s application, the University considered high school grades, standardized test scores, high school quality, leadership, and above all, race. The University considered African- Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans to be “underrepresented minorities” and are therefore qualified. In addition, these ethnic groups are automatically awarded 20 points out of 100 which guarantees their admission. There clearly is a different treatment between races, and they have therefore violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (page 13). This resulted in Gratz winning the case.
