Kimberlé Crenshaw teaches Civil Rights and other courses in critical race studies and constitutional law at both UCLA and Columbia School of Law. Her primary scholarly interests center around race and the law, and she was a founder and has been a leader in the intellectual movement called Critical Race Theory. She was elected Professor of the Year by the 1991 and 1994 graduating classes.
At the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she received her LL.M., Professor Crenshaw was a William H. Hastie Fellow. She then clerked for Justice Shirley Abrahamson of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Her publications include “Critical Race Theory” (edited by Crenshaw, et al., 1995) and “Words that Wound: Critical Race Theory, Assaultive Speech and the First Amendment” (with Matsuda, et al., 1993).
