Harvard Latin American Law Review
The 2022 Inaugural Graciela Oliva ́rez Latinas in the Legal Academy (“GO LILA”) Workshop convened seventy-four outstanding and powerful Latina law professors and professional legal educators (collectively, “Latinas in the legal academy,” or “LILAs”) to document and celebrate our individual and collective journeys and to grow stronger together. In this essay, we, four of the Latina law professors who helped to co-found the GO LILA Workshop, share what we learned about and from each other. We invite other LILAs to join our community and share their stories and journeys. We hope that the data and lessons that we share can inspire other Latinas to join the legal academy. We encourage law schools to honor the transformation that our presence and contributions have brought to legal education and scholarship and to join us in considering how our path forward can be even more impactful and sustaining.
