Chicanx-Latinx Law Review

Mission: Over the last 50 years, the Chicanx-Latinx Law Review (CLLR) has provided an essential forum for the discussion of central issues affecting the Latinx community that "mainstream" law journals continue to ignore. In publishing Volume One, CLLR introduced to the nation the first legal journal that recognized how common law, statutes, legislative policy, and politically popular propositions impact the Latinx community. Since 1972, CLLR 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 Review has been cited as persuasive authority by 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.

Annual Symposium

Latina Futures Symposium flyer

Latina Futures: Transforming the Nation Through Law & Policy was a one-and-a-half-day symposium featuring prominent Latina scholars, attorneys, policy leaders, and law students from across the country to foster a multi-generational leadership pipeline that spotlights today's 21st-century legal challenges and opportunities with a Latina lens. The symposium drew inspiration from the nation's diverse cadre of Latina attorneys to spotlight the challenges and opportunities to achieve parity for today's youthful and growing communities of color.

Symposium Objectives

  • Convene a diverse cadre of Latina leaders to detail their unique experiences in American jurisprudence and share unparalleled personal insights with the generations of Latina lawyers and law students following in their path.
  • Shine a light on the economic, political, and social status of Latinas in the U.S. through substantive Continuing Legal Education panels that center the Latina experience in the context of today's most pressing law and policy debates from reproductive justice to affirmative action to economic justice, paving the way for informed discussions in the landscape of the 2024 election and beyond.
  • Cultivate a multi- generational, cross-sectoral, and geographically diverse cadre of Latina leaders to foster a dynamic pipeline that will promote the success of Latinas across important democratic institutions from state capitols to the ivory tower and corporate boardrooms
