Part of the forthcoming University of Oregon Law Review tribute to the scholarship of the late Professor Keith Aoki (1955-2011), this article situates Keith’s engagement of Latina/o policy issues within his scholarly identity and legacy. Although best remembered for his renowned contributions in the fields of intellectual property, property law, and Asian American jurisprudence, Keith wrote extensively on Latina/o issues in pursuit of equality of treatment. As addressed in the article, Keith’s notable advocacy on behalf of Latinas/os includes the significance of political representation as a strategy for social change and his innovative proposals for regional formulation of immigration policy.
