Ian Haney López White Latinos 6 Harvard Latino Law Review 1 (Spring, 2003) Who are the leaders in Latino communities? This question does not admit simple answers, for who counts as a leader and what Latino identity entails are both contentious issues. Having said that, I contend that often Latino leaders are white. I employ this hyperbole to emphasize my point that most of those who see themselves as leaders of Latino... 2003 Yes

Richard A. Paez A Perspective on Judging 13 Berkeley La Raza Law Journal 47 (2002) It is good to be here at Boalt. It wasn't too many years ago that I returned to the law school for a visit. I left in 1972, and if somebody had told me then, that twenty-five years later I would be appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, I would have said, You're kidding. That's not going to happen. Had I thought... 2002  
Araceli Martínez-Olguín A Redefining Moment 13 Berkeley La Raza Law Journal 109 (2002) I started keeping a journal my senior year in high school. It has been my practice to record in its volumes important events. That is why it shocks me that there is not a single entry from the trip to Cincinnati. It was extremely formative of my sense of self as a law student. As an admitted student, I was in touch with one of the students who went... 2002

Lolita K. Buckner Inniss Bicentennial Man - the New Millennium Assimilationism and the Foreigner among Us 54 Rutgers Law Review 1101 (Summer 2002) Much has been written about law and film. Law and film can be seen as an outgrowth of the law and literature movement, which is typically understood as being roughly divided between considerations of law as literature, and law in literature. Most law and film scholarship falls into the latter category, frequently treating the portrayal of lawyers... 2002  
Cruz Reynoso Brief Remembrances: My Appointment and Service on the California Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, 1976-1987 13 Berkeley La Raza Law Journal 15 (2002) Outside the weather was warm as it usually is in Sacramento in August.

Jane E. Larson Class, Economics, and Social Rights 54 Rutgers Law Review 831 (Summer 2002) This cluster explores the themes of LatCrit through the lens of class broadly conceived. Class as these authors invoke the concept, connotes both material inequality and deprivation of individuals, and societal systems of economic domination.

Claire Moore Dickerson Culture and Trans-border Effects: Northern Individualism Meets Third-generation Human Rights 54 Rutgers Law Review 865 (Summer 2002) The economic power of the North and West is not much in dispute; the issue is how to control that power as its impacts spill outside the purely commercial domain. I am proposing a lesson in manipulation of multinationals and, in this connection, make two claims. First, the North (including the West) abuses the South at least in part because the... 2002

Marisa Arrona, Alegría De La Cruz, César del Peral From Michigan to Cincinnati: Our Fate in Their Hands 13 Berkeley La Raza Law Journal 103 (2002) It didn't take us long to find each other - the progressive students, the students of color - at Boalt Hall. We came demanding answers to the frustrating statistics showing the lack of diversity at the top public law school in the state. We came wanting to learn strategies and solutions, and needing to learn how to reverse the reactionary Supreme... 2002  
Jenny B. Davis Grande Opportunity 88-DEC ABA Journal 34 (December, 2002) Although they may deny it at first, most civil defense lawyers in Texas' Rio Grande Valley have a certain type of story to tell. The details vary by teller, but the ending is always the same: An outsider, sometimes a fellow Texan but more often a Yankee, comes down to investigate a claim, check on a case or assist with voir dire. One visit to any... 2002

Sharon E. Rush Identity Matters 54 Rutgers Law Review 909 (Summer 2002) As I read this cluster of papers on race, gender and sexuality, I am reminded of the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland. When Alice comes upon him as he rests on a mushroom, he blows smoke from his hookah that, in the movie version, spells out the question he simultaneously asks her, W h o a r e y o u? The smokey, blurry letters float in the air... 2002  
Stephanie Townsend Allala , Angelica Cervantes In Recognition of Alberto Gonzales: Counsel to the President 8 Texas Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy 3 (Spring 2002) Alberto Al Gonzales has forged a remarkable path to political success, from the cotton fields of South Texas to the White House War Room, and he takes his assent in stride. It's hard for me to recall what dreams I had as a boy, he says, but it is clear that his trajectory has been not so much the fulfillment of a dream as an answer to a call.... 2002

Charles R.P. Pouncy Institutional Economics and Critical Race/latcrit Theory: the Need for a Critical "Raced" Economics 54 Rutgers Law Review 841 (Summer 2002) Critical race theory has made tremendous strides in deconstructing the operation of racialized power and the processes that render it invisible to the individuals at the sites at which such power is concentrated and exercised. In constructing its analyses, this critical movement has often relied on interdisciplinary sources. Critical race scholars... 2002 Yes
