Placing Máscaras squarely in the context of challenging students to engage in a critical analysis of law and their legal education, as well as frankly acknowledging how hard it is to talk about race honestly, would seem to be a good prescription for encouraging such discussions. The article has a relevance that goes far beyond the literature of Critical Race Theory. In the end, Máscaras has remarkable potential as a catalyst for discussing important questions about the nature of law in America.
