On the Shelf: Hispanic Heritage Month and Recent Latin American Law Material Acquisitions

Earlier this year we reflected on Hispanic Heritage Month with a post by my colleague Francisco Macias. He and I have explored the origins of the month in previous years’ posts. You can read this year’s Presidential Proclamation online too. Once you know all about it, how will you commemorate this month? It begins each year on September 15 and runs to October 15, so you have some time to think about it. One method is to take a look at the new arrivals to the collection. With the anniversaries of the independence of several Latin American countries recently behind us (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile and Belize) and the celebration of Día de la Raza to look forward to on October 12, I pulled several of our newest titles (i.e., the last two years) that you’ll find here on the shelf at the Law Library. This list is representative, not exhaustive. Enjoy!
