Abstract

The Mendez v. Westminster case has a very important role in the development of equality rights and the abolition of racial segregation. It influenced legal reform in the State of California, increasing equal access to education. But no doubt its greatest influence was on the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, whose main tenets were grounded on considerations set down in Mendez.
