Vinay Harpalani, Narrowly Tailored but Broadly Compelling: Defending Race-Conscious Admissions After Fisher, 45 SETON Hall L. Rev. 761 (2015). This article examines the effect of Fisher v. Texas on race-conscious admissions policies in universities. The author suggests that Fisher allows universities to continue using raceconscious policies if there has been no state or local political action and if the policy does not violate the Constitution. The author explains that due to the holistic admissions process implemented by universities, complete race neutrality is not possible due to the individualized review in the admissions process. In conclusion, the author calls on universities to embrace race-consciousness, not only in admissions, but in educational goals of the university and daily campus activities to promote diversity.

Also, the article addresses the federal government's Online State Authorization Rule and presents a case study of California's regulatory structure of for-profit distance education.

Janet Napolitano, "Only Yes Means Yes": An Essay on University Policies Regarding Sexual Violence and Sexual Assault, 33 Yale L. & Pol'y Rev. 387 (2015). This article looks at the growing emphasis placed on campus response to sexual violence and assault and the momentum for positive change. More specifically, the author focuses on the complexity of these sexual violence cases and the ability of university officials to remedy the situation in light of new requirements imposed by the Department of Education, Congress, and state legislatures. In conclusion, the author states that current laws are too complex and need to be simplified and streamlined; which would allow colleges to use their limited resources for education, direct prevention, and response to sexual violence.
