About the Author

Miguel Espinoza is an attorney living in Los Angeles.


Access to education remains one of the great equalizers in America today. But for too many Americans- especially those from low-income communities of color- our nation's colleges and universities remain out of reach. This book tells the story of UCLA's pioneering effort to break down the barriers to higher education through one of the largest and most successful affirmative action programs ever created. As the fight for educational equality continues today, this book provides powerful evidence that affirmative action works, and serves as an important reminder of our obligation to ensure the doors of opportunity remain open to all. -- Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa
In this well-written and exhaustively researched book, Espinoza skillfully tells the story of race-conscious admissions at the UCLA School of Law from 1966 to 1978. This period reflects the inception of the law school's affirmative action program, which came to be known as the Legal Education Opportunity Program (LEOP), and the changes that took place to LEOP after the U.S. Supreme Court set forth the parameters of race-conscious admissions in Bakke v. Regents of the University of California (1978). This book is a must-read for anyone interested race and educational access in higher education. -- Philip Lee, UDC David A. Clarke School of Law
In the 1960s, colleges and universities realized that prohibiting discrimination was not enough; affirmative action was essential for diversity. Miguel Espinoza has written a terrific book about the fight to create affirmative action programs in one institution: UCLA Law School. Espinoza's account is beautifully written and compelling. Anyone interested in the affirmative action debate today - and that should be all of us - would benefit greatly from reading this book. -- Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law
