Representing The Latino Client

Law 415






This course is intended to introduce American lawyers to Latino culture and the unique issues that may arise when representing a Spanish speaker. It will focus on the growing Latino population in the United States and the legal issues that arise when a party to a matter is a Latino immigrant. Spanish speaking and comprehension skills may provide insight, but are not required. Practical skills will be emphasized. The course will be graded on a pass-fail basis. The grade will be based on class preparation/participation and performance on two assessments. All graded exercises will be conducted in English.
