UNM Law School Emerita Professor Margaret Montoya Celebrates 20th Anniversary of the Chicano-Latino Law Review

Margaret MontoyaThe UCLA Chicano-Latino Law Review (CLLR) has published its Symposium issue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Máscaras, Trenzas y Greñas: Un/Masking the Self While Un/Braiding Latina Stories and Legal Discourse written by UNM Law School Emerita Professor Margaret Montoya.

Montoya's ground-breaking law review article was jointly published by the UCLA CLLR and the Harvard Women’s Law Journal in 1994. She addressed the challenges and obstacles that face those who are outsiders within legal education and discourse, and the negative effects this has for the legal community. Her article is considered to be a classic by critical race scholars.

In Spring 2013, UCLA and Harvard Law School hosted separate symposia to celebrate the publication of the piece. The twenty-two Harvard ejournal publication also include essays by Professors Chris Fritz and Christine Zuni-Cruz.

Emerita Professor Montoya's anniversary essay is available at http://harvardjlg.com/print-edition/ in Vol. 36.
