It's well-known that there's a severe gender imbalance in undergraduate college populations: About 57 percent of undergrads these days are female and just 43 percent male, the culmination of a trend in which significantly fewer young men than young women either graduate from high school or enroll in college.
"The Obama administration appears to be gearing to take an aggressive stance on this issue," Ms. Heriot said this week. "I believe the Akaka bill itself would have been unconstitutional. It will be at least as unconstitutional if the executive branch attempts to accomplish the same result by itself."
"This really is a unanimous opinion that the courts below were in error. They just disagreed on what that error was," said Gail Heriot, a law professor at University of San Diego School of Law.
