The Harvard Latinx Law Review (HLLR) provides a forum for the scholarly discussion of legal issues affecting Latinx communities in the United States. Recent articles (Volume 23) have addressed issues including analyzing the effects of anti-immigrant laws in the U.S. on victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking through a gender-based human rights lens, framing political animosities between sexual minorities and churches in Cuba’s new Constitution, the consequences of antidumping and countervailing duty laws on immigration and poverty, the riddle of whether the Puerto Rico Oversight Board is a federal or territorial entity, and Latinidad, white supremacy, and reforming first-year moot court competitions to confront racial and ethnic bias. The previous volume (Volume 22) addressed issues including critically re-examining immigration rhetoric and policy under the Trump administration, utilizing congressional investigations to improve National Hurricane Preparedness, expanding the immigration caging machine regardless of Nielsen and the implications of environmental law and Latino property rights on modern-age border security.
HLLR has also interviewed the following people: Julián Castro (former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development), Irene Oria (President of the Hispanic National Bar Association), Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar of the Supreme Court of California, David Lopez (former General Counsel of the U.S. E.E.O.C.), and Joaquin Castro (U.S. Representative).
