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 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.

2022 UCLA Chicanx-Latinx Law Review Symposium: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Justice Cruz Reynoso

UCLA's Chicanx-Latinx Law Review celebrated our 50th Anniversary Symposium by honoring the life and legacy of former UCLA Law Professor and California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso.

Reynoso was a giant in the law field as the first Latino appointed to both the California Supreme Court (1982–1986) and California Court of Appeals (1976–1982), a founding attorney at California Rural Legal Assistance (1969–1972), a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission (1993–2005), and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2000). He was a tenured professor of law at the University of New Mexico, UC Davis, and UCLA from 1991–2001, where he taught Legal Ethics and Remedies as well as a seminar on judicial process.

Our day-long celebration of his legacy included roundtable presentations highlighting Reynoso's impact on legal education, the judiciary, and social justice as well as a screening of the documentary film Cruz Reynoso: Sowing the Seeds of Justice. Speakers included retired Justice Carlos Moreno, past MALDEF President Antonia Hernandez, former UCLA Law Deans Susan Prager and Rachel Moran, as well as many judges, elected officials, professors, and others who were inspired by Reynoso's life of service.

Call for Submissions

The Chicanx-Latinx Law Review at UCLA School of Law invites scholars, graduate students and practitioners to submit manuscripts for our upcoming volumes.

Interested scholars should submit manuscripts directly to us at cllr@lawnet.ucla.edu. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.

While there are no strict guidelines 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.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to reading your submissions.
