When Frances Munoz was going to UCLA and South West Law School, she had to work full-time as the manager and buyer for a furniture store. It took her 10 years to put herself through school, but she graduated in the top 20% of her class and was on the Law Review. After graduation, Munoz took a job with the Orange County Public Defender's Office and eventually became the first Latino woman appointed to the bench in Southern California in 1978.
