Course Description

This is a 3-credit hour course that will examine the interaction of Latinxs and the U.S. legal system.

This course will delve into the significant forces shaping Latinx identity, particularly related to historical and contemporary discrimination experienced by different segments of this population. We will explore economic inequality, the complex and varied history of racialization, criminal justice, voting rights, identity, citizenship and immigration, educational policy, and civil rights.

doctrinal areas of law covered in this course include Constitutional Law and Criminal Law to advance your understanding of how our legal system and governance impact Latinxs in the United States.
