This course explores substantive legal issues which have been the focus of the Latino community’s legal rights movements in the United States. Students will discuss the significance to a legal analysis of rights and constitutional guarantees of culture, ethnicity, language, race, gender, sexuality, socio/political, economic and immigrant status, and the histories of national origin subgroups. Substantive issues include criminal justice, education, employment, health, and voting rights. Students will critique the legal approaches taken in struggles for equality and assess the role of Latinos and Latinas in shaping United States jurisprudence. Course materials include cases, legal critiques, and interdisciplinary materials on issues impacting Latinos and Latinas.
