They probably both benefited from affirmative action policies. In fact, Obama has said so himself (regarding himself).
Despite affirmative action policies, though, Harvard would have very little problem finding intelligent black candidates applying to their Law School. It's not like top 10 law schools accept a bunch of goofballs because they're black to fill some undefined quota.
