Loyola at a Glance

Law professor chosen as co-chair elect of law association's section

February 22, 2013

M. Isabel Medina, J.D., the Ferris Family Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law has been chosen co-chair elect of the constitutional law section of the Association of American Law Schools, and as co-chair next year, will plan the section’s 2014 annual program.

Medina, who recently discussed immigration reform on WLAE’s “John Redmann's Power of Attorney” and “Louisiana: The State We’re In,” was also invited to present a paper on citizenship and its status as a fundamental or human right at a conference at the University of Poitiers to be held next October in Poitiers, France.

She presented her work in progress, “Derivative Citizenship - What's marriage, sex, race and class got to do with it?,” at the Mid-Atlantic People of Color Conference last month at University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she also discussed a paper by former College of Law Westerfield Fellow Ezra Rosser, J.D., on "The Elusive Latin American Dream."
