UCLA law professor Richard Sander talks about his new study on affirmative action in law schools. Sander says many African-American students at the nation's top law schools are struggling academically. Many drop out, resulting in fewer minority lawyers, not more. Harvard law professor David Wilkins disagrees. Sander and Wilkins talk with NPR's Renee Montagne.
