This article discusses issues related to the study and teaching of race and ethnicity. Professor Chang explains the way race is taught or not taught in law schools is reflective of the historical and factual predicates we want our students to have. Faculty diversification can have an impact on the courses that are taught. Most, if not all, of the courses on critical race theory are taught by faculty-of-color. Most of the primary courses on Latinas/os and the law are taught by Latinas/os. If more related and primary courses are going to be offered by schools, then it seems that schools must hire faculty-of-color who have research and teaching interests in the area of critical race theory and on Latinas/os and the law.
