Honoring All Rebellious Practitioners – Including Gerald P. López
October 5 & 6 | UCLA School of Law
Gerald P. López published Rebellious Lawyering: One Chicano’s Vision of Progressive Law Practice in 1992. The book brought to life how he and others had been practicing for decades. Through “fictional characters and settings as real as can be,” Rebellious Lawyering illuminated how people do what they do when collaborating with others as equals. To fight subordination of every sort. To transform institutions, systems, nations, and transnational life. To personify – and not just prefigure – the concrete utopias they seek. Militantly challenging subordination in all forms and transforming life as we know it are at the center of the rebellious vision, and UCLA Law’s Critical Race Studies program is honored to devote this symposium to looking at rebellious practice past, present, and future.
