Perspectives on Bakke: Equal Protection, Procedural Fairness, or Structural Justice?

Abstract

In this Comment, Professor Tribe explores some of the possible theoretical ramifications of the Bakke decision. Professor Tribe chooses not to detail the points of agreement and conflict in the Justices' various opinions in that case; instead he draws from them strands reflecting on broader doctrinal themes in constitutional law. Thus, Bakke is examined for what it has to say regarding first the the area of equal protection, then the idea of procedural fairness as distinct from accuracy of result, and finally the notion of structural justice.
