As you probably know, Brown University has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court a ruling that Brown had discriminated against its female athletes. Participants in this list might like to know that The Chronicle of Higher Education's daily on-line service for subscribers, Academe Today (http://chronicle.com), has available the full texts of the briefs in the Brown University Title IX case, including amicus briefs that were filed this week.
