||Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal (HRPLJ) is committed to promoting and inspiring discourse in the legal community regarding issues of race, poverty, social justice, and the law. HRPLJ is committed to addressing disparities in the legal system. We will create an avenue for compelling dialogue on the subject of the growing marginalization of racial minorities and the economically disadvantaged. It is our hope that the legal theories addressed in this Journal will prove useful in remedying the structural inequalities facing our communities. HRPLJ publishes two issues per yearly volume: Winter and Summer.
