Abstract

This article is a slightly revised speech of the keynote speaker at the UCLA Chicano-Latino Law Review's 30th anniversary conference on "Affirmative Action in Higher Education in the New Millennium" in February 2002. Through the pages of the Chicano-Latino Law Review, the first law review that focused exclusively on issues of relevance to the Latina/o community, the article traces the struggles for affirmative action at UCLA School of Law. The long history of debate over affirmative action at UCLA includes a speech at a protest at the law school by Cesar Chavez, the famous President of the United Farm Workers, who proclaimed that "[w]e are here with you because your cause is just." The article also considers how the Chicana/o Latino Law Review focused attention on particularly Latina/o civil rights issues, including immigration, language regulation, and bilingual education, long before these issues were the subject of analysis in mainstream law reviews.
