Abstract

Literature on lawyers and law professors of color with disabilities is all too rare. This short essay draws on the storytelling and personal narrative strategies familiar to the Critical Race movement to support women of color with disabilities as they navigate the challenges and opportunities of legal academia. Like other contributions to the collection, it is in the form of a brief "letter" to law teachers new to the profession. It uses a multidimensional, or intersectional, approach to highlight the implications of racial/ethnicity, gender, and disability status in this context.
