Laura E. Gómez rejoined the faculty of UCLA Law in 2011, after serving as professor of law and American studies at the University of New Mexico from 2005-10. Before joining the UNM faculty, she spent 12 years as professor of law at UCLA. She was a co-founder and the first co-director of UCLA’s Critical Race Studies Program. Gómez has lectured widely and has published numerous articles, book chapters, and op-ed commentaries, as well as two books. In her 2007 book, Manifest Destinies: The Making of the Mexican American Race, Professor Gómez examines how law and racial ideology intersected to create new racial groups and to re-structure the turn-of-the-twentieth century racial order in the US. As an associate editor of the Law & Society Review, she produced a special issue on law and racial inequality (2010). She has held prestigious residential fellowships at the School for American Research in Santa Fe and the Stanford Humanities Center in Palo Alto.
