UT Law Alum, Chuy Ramirez, will address the Chicano/Hispanic Law Students’ Association on Monday, September 27th, at 11:30am in TNH 3.125. Author will be signing books following the event.
Ramirez’ topic will be Counsel to the Corporate Entity, A Lot of Law and a Little Bit of Politics. He will also be reading brief excerpts from his book, Strawberry Fields, A Book of Short Stories, published earlier in the year by First Texas Publishers. A Class of '83 UT law school grad, Chuy Ramirez, served as Articles Editor for the Texas International Law Journal. He published a note entitled, “Altering the Policy of Neglect of Undocumented Immigration from South of the Border." In law school, Ramirez was an active participant in the Chicano Law Students Association, served as a director on the Legal Research Board, and initiated the publication of Rio Rojo, a student publication.
Ramirez’ address will focus on the attorney’s ethical standards in representing both public governmental bodies and corporations. Currently, Ramirez’ practice focuses on commercial transactions and public finance. As a bond attorney, he has represented many governmental units in South Texas in connection with their issuance of tax-exempt bonds. He is currently corporate legal counsel for Lone Star National Bank, a Texas national bank with branches throughout South Texas and in San Antonio.
Recent reviews of Ramirez’ book highlight his unique style and sensibility through the eyes of the adolescent main character, a successful attorney who reflects on his past through a reflexive journey. Boston University professor, Dr. John Hart, writes, “Strawberry Fields is a beautifully written, well-told tale of remembrance, reflection, and renewal. Strawberry Fields is a very important book for its insightful portrayal of Chicano culture, values, and hardships, of lingering impacts of racism and economic deprivation, and of continuing efforts by Chicanos to be accorded respect and dignity in the twenty-first century…and beyond.”
University of Texas Pan American professor, Dr. Genaro Gonzalez, an author of four novels himself writes, “Chuy Ramírez’ description of harvesting strawberries while living in a squalid labor camp is at once lyrical and sober. There is an adolescent’s sense of adventure on experiencing the world beyond his barrio, yet the wonder is tempered with a more mature portrayal of the hardships of camp life. He incorporates those experiences into the emotional crisis of Joaquín, now a successful attorney, who senses that his spiritual tumult is somehow linked to that long-ago summer.”
