He will deliver the keynote address at an upcoming conference titled Race, Labor & The Law (for the conference program, click here). The conference, organized by the UCLA Institute for Research and Employment, will take place Friday, Feb. 28 and Saturday, March 1 at UCLA.

"Legal scholars, social scientists, humanists and practitioners (will reframe) the relationship between race, gender, class and labor in the United States. Through interdisciplinary approaches to the subject, panelists will examine these interlocking forms of oppression; consider how the interplay between them shapes labor markets, labor hierarchies and labor and employment law; and investigate the repressive and insurgent forces involved," according to the conference website

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
