InfoAntoinette Sedillo Lopez is a former UNM Law Professor and a long time social justice leader.

For nearly 30 years Antoinette’s professional career and citizen involvement has focused on taking leadership to make her community a better place for everyone. In the mid 90’s she served on the Albuquerque Air Quality Control Board, where she worked to enact clean air policies that eradicated a brown cloud over Albuquerque’s beautiful skies. When she became Associate Dean at UNM, she co-founded and ran legal clinics that trained new lawyers and provided legal help for New Mexicans who needed it most. These clinics included: an Economic Justice Law Clinic, which serves people who were victims of predatory lenders; the Southwest Indian Law clinic, which serves Native Americans who lack access to necessary legal services; The Innocence and Justice Project, which serves people who are wrongfully incarcerated, and The Environmental Law/ Justice Clinic, which serves communities that suffer from illegal corporate pollution.

Antoinette most recently served as the executive director of Enlace Communitario, an anti-domestic violence non-profit that serves all and focuses outreach efforts in the Latino immigrant community of Central New Mexico.

Antoinette is a nationally renowned legal scholar and leader. Antoinette’s leadership in legal education and on critical social and civil rights issues has deeply impacted her students and her wider community.

Antoinette grew up on her parents’ farm in Los Chavez, New Mexico. After graduating, Antoinette pursued her dream of becoming an attorney, enrolling and excelling first at UNM and then at UCLA School of Law where she met her husband Victor.

Along with her service through her legal career, Antoinette has been closely involved with numerous organizations in her community including serving on the boards of the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Valley Improvement Association Board, the Southwest Women’s Law Center, and the New Mexico Hispanic Bar Association. Antoinette and her husband Victor live in Albuquerque where they enjoy spending time with their three children: Victor and his partner Rebecca, Graciela, and Evalina, and with their grandson Santiago.
