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.
Call for Submissions
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2022-2023 CYCLE:
VOLUME 39 AND THE JUSTICE CRUZ REYNOSO SYMPOSIUM EDITION
As one of the first and only law journals of its kind, the Chicanx-Latinx Law Review (CLLR), has published exceptional, innovative, and impactful legal discourse impacting the Latinx community for fifty years. To that end, CLLR is now accepting submissions for Volume 39 and a special volume honoring the life and legacy of Justice Cruz Reynoso.
Volume 39 Submission Guidelines
Area of Specialization: CLLR has established a reputation for publishing groundbreaking and influential scholarly work on topics affecting Latinx peoples and communities like affirmative action and education, Spanish and Mexican land grants, environmental justice, language rights, and immigration reform.
Type of Writing: While we primarily accept scholarly articles, we are open to publishing other material such as student notes or comments, or book reviews.
Length: We typically accept four to six articles for each volume with a word count range of about 10,000 to 15,000 words (including footnotes). However, we are willing to accept works that do not fit these parameters if the subject matter is a good fit for CLLR and the quality of the work is high.
Formatting: CLLR uses The Bluebook (21st edition) for citations and The Chicago Manual of Style for content. We request that submissions be in Word Doc format. To submit, you can send us your work and resume/CV via Scholastica (preferred) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be accepting submissions on a rolling basis.
Reynoso Special Volume Submission Guidelines
Area of Specialization: In April 2022, CLLR hosted our 50th Anniversary Symposium honoring Justice Cruz Reynoso’s life and legacy. Over 200 practitioners, students, and community members came together to learn about Reynoso’s legacy as the first Latino California Supreme Court Justice and his work advancing social justice. To continue this discourse, we welcome submissions under a broad range of topics: personal reflections about the Justice’s impact on your life; commentary on causes the Justice championed, including labor and employment fairness for immigrant farm workers and other low-income groups, voting and language access, and rights of the accused; and commentary on the Justice’s impact on the judiciary, including Latinx access to the judiciary and impact on Latinx communities.
Type of Submission: Please note that for this special volume especially, given the focus on one individual, CLLR is accepting work in non-traditional academic formats, which could entail a personal letter, audio recordings, and/or photographs or videos. CLLR will also be accepting academic articles.
Length: CLLR would prefer that written work be limited to 10,000 words with footnotes. For non-written work, CLLR has more flexibility.
Formatting: CLLR uses The Bluebook (21st edition) for citations and The Chicago Manual of Style for content. We request that written submissions be in Word Doc format.
Interested scholars should submit directly to email@example.com. We will be accepting submissions on a rolling basis.
