Law schools serve as gateway institutions into one of the most politically powerful social fields: the profession of law. Reproducing Racism is an examination of white privilege and power in two elite United States law schools. Moore examines how racial structures, racialized everyday practices, and racial discourses actually function in law schools.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reproducing Racism provides a unique and probing glimpse into the racial structure of elite law schools. As a participant, observer, and insightful critic, Wendy Leo Moore provides a richly detailed picture of the everyday practices by which racial inequality is reproduced. -- Jennifer L. Pierce, associate professor of american studies at University of Minnesota, and author of Gender Trials: Emotional Lives in Contemporary
Despite the seemingly unblemished liberal skin of law schools, racist tendencies remain. In Reproducing Racism Wendy Leo Moore examines the continuing effects of racism at the institutional level, addressing how racially inclusive and exclusive 'white space' functions in law schools. -- Richard Delgado, professor of Law, University of Pittsburgh, and author of Critical Race Theory: An Introduction
Professor Wendy Leo Moore in Reproducing Racism lifts the smokescreen on racism in two of the most prestigious law schools in the United States, making it very clear that race still structures law school access and acceptance, even among the so-called best and brightest. Well-written and finely argued, Reproducing Racism: White Space, Elite Law Schools, and Racial Inequality is a powerful contribution to our understanding of racism in the 21st century. -- Rose Brewer, professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, University of Minnesota and author of Black Radical Theory and Practice: Gend
Everyone should read this book, a call to researchers to examine the reproduction of racism in other areas. Highly recommended. * CHOICE, December 2008 *
There is a growing tendency to view our major institutions in the United States as being more racially inclusive and less racist. Wendy Leo Moore's meticulous study of two elite law schools shatters the myth that legal education takes place in a race neutral environment. This book is essential for anyone interested in understanding how white privilege is reproduced within the context of an ostensibly colorblind institutional setting. -- Charles A. Gallagher, associate professor of sociology and race and Urban Chair at Georgia State University, and author of Rethinking the Color Line:
