  • The Asian Pacific American Law Journal (APALJ) focuses exclusively on the legal, social, and political issues affecting Asian Pacific American communities. APALJ plays an important role by providing a forum for legal scholars, practitioners, and students to communicate about emerging concerns and by disseminating these writings to the general population. We work hard to reach out to the community and initiate discourse on APALJ issues. APALJ members are involved in the entire journal publication process including selection, substantive editing, and cite-checking of all articles and comments. In addition to publishing law journals, APALJ hosts symposiums and live-speaker series.

  • Over the last 30 years, the Chicanx-Latinx 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.​
