Front matter for Volume 33, Issue 3 of the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform.

This volume marks the first time that the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform and the Michigan Journal of Race & Law have collaborated to produce a joint issue. We entered this relationship to pursue two shared goals. First, we seek to enhance the developing body of Latina/o Critical Race Theory by bringing LatCrit, and Critical Race Theory more generally, into established legal discourse. This area of study involves important issues that, for the most part, are rarely discussed, despite their centrality to the legal system and the legal profession's role in an increasingly diverse society. Second, through our collaborative effort, we endeavor to integrate the goals of our publications-providing a forum for the exploration of issues relating to race and law, and focusing on publishing law reform-oriented scholarship.
