December 6, 2013

M. Isabel Medina, J.D., the Ferris Family Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans, shared her expertise on everything from citizenship law to race consciousness during conferences and workshops this fall.

In October, Medina spoke about the issue of citizenship by descent and the intersection of state family law and federal citizenship law at both the LatCrit 2013 Biennial Conference in Chicago and the annual conference for the National Association of Women Judges in New Orleans.

Medina presented “Silencing Race Consciousness: State Restrictions on Ethnic Studies” at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law Fourth Annual Constitutional Law Colloquium held Nov. 2.

Her paper, “An Analysis of Federal Court Decisions Involving Citizenship by Descent from 1990-2010,” was presented Nov. 16 at the Class Crits VI Workshop held at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, Calif.
