Scott Greytak
Scott Greytak provides legal analysis, policy recommendations, and commentary on the intersection of civil rights and education policy. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as The South African Public Law Journal, De Jure, and West’s Education Law Reporter, featured in Inside Higher Ed and The Chronicle of Higher Education, and presented at national education and diversity conferences. His current projects include developing innovative and practical approaches to increasing the percentage of students at selective colleges and universities that come from disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as informing the emerging debate on race-conscious and race-neutral admissions programs in the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Fisher v. University of Texas. These projects will be featured in upcoming publications released by national advocacy groups and research foundations.

Prior to joining CB Law, Scott advised the Director, agency leadership, and Outreach Committee of the Ohio Public Defender on issues affecting racial justice and the criminal justice system, developed policy recommendations for Ohio state legislators, and co-directed a successful, coalition-led campaign against employment discrimination. He also worked with the Ohio Public Defender’s Trial Division on felony cases, helping to achieve positive results for indigent clients facing serious charges, including aggravated murder.

Scott began his work on education policy as a research associate at the Ohio State School of Educational Policy & Leadership. In law school, he worked as a law clerk in the Columbus office of the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, advocating for reforms in Ohio's criminal justice system and for the elimination of LGBT discrimination in the workplace.

Scott serves as a Vice-Chair of Outreach for the American Constitution Society’s D.C. Lawyers Chapter, and is a graduate of the Center for Progressive Leadership’s New Leaders Program.
