List of Subjects
Michael A. Olivas, Editor
This book is edited by Michael
Olivas, the William B. Bates Distinguished Chair of Law and Director of
the Institute for Higher Education Law and Governance at the University
of Houston Law Center. This title commemorates the 50th anniversary of
the famous U.S. Supreme court case, Hernandez v. Texas, 347 US 475 (1954)
which held that Mexican Americans were a protected group under the Fourteenth
Amendment equal protection clause. This case was largely about prohibiting
discrimination in state jury selection but has been cited as precedent
by subsequent civil rights cases. The chronology of the case and trial
briefs are included as well as the papers presented at the Hernandez at
50 Conference held at the University of Houston Law Center in 2004.
