Mission: Over the last 30 years, the Chicana/o-Latina/o Law Review (CLLR) has provided an essential forum for the discussion of central issues affecting the Latino community that "mainstream" law journals continue to ignore. In publishing Volume One, the Review introduced to the nation the first legal journal that recognized how common law, statutes, legislative policy and politically popular propositions impact the Latino community. Since 1972, the Review has established a reputation for publishing strong scholarly work on affirmative action and education, Spanish and Mexican land grants, environmental justice, language rights and immigration reform. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Nevada Supreme Court and New Jersey Superior Court have cited the Review as a persuasive authority.

Call for Submissions
As the Co-Editor in Chief of the Chicana/o-Latina/o Law Review (CLLR) at UCLA School of Law, I invite scholars, graduate students and practitioners to submit manuscripts for our upcoming volumes.
Interested scholars should submit manuscripts directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.
While there is no strict guideline as to what CLLR publishes, articles or comments should address how law shapes the experiences of the Latina/o and other marginalized communities. For a look at what CLLR has published in the past and our current volume, visit our site.
This year we will also be co-hosting a Spring Symposium. Authors publishing in Volume 35 may have the opportunity to present their work in the form of a panel. CLLR’s 2017 Symposium invites the community to discuss meanings of diversity, race neutrality and diversity policies impacting the Chicana/o-Latina/o community.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to reading your submissions.
