Abstract:     
This article explores the interplay between gender identity and racial, cultural, and ethnic identity as well as socioeconomic background, intellectual self esteem, and familial support systems to investigate the experience of women law students in legal education. Consisting of nine narratives by female law students of varying identities and backgrounds, the article’s main goal is to question the traditional focus on gender identity as a defining and explanatory factor of women’s subpar legal education and examine its interplay with other aspects of students’ identity and background conditions.
