Jurisprudence of Affirmative Action: A Post-Realist Analysis, 65 Georgetown Law Journal 879 (1977)

Abstract

In this essay, Professor Deutsch explains why the Realists' description of our legal system is invalid and then proposes a post-Realist explanation of it. Using the example of affirmative action, he attempts to demonstrate both why society accepts desegregation decrees and why judges often reject racial quotas although such quotas may be the most efficient means of remedying past discrimination.
