Regina Larrea Maccise
Graduate Student Associate
Regina Larrea Maccise is a SJD candidate at Harvard Law School. Her dissertation studies the development of feminist law in Mexico in the 20th century, focusing on the role of the Mexican feminist movement in this process. She is interested in questions such as: How did feminism find its way into law? How did feminism change the state? And how did feminism itself —as a movement and as a set of ideas—change in the process? Her broader academic interests include the intersection between gender, sexuality, and the law, feminist theory, legal theory, legal history, and constitutional law. Before coming to Harvard, Regina worked in the Mexican Supreme Court, where she helped develop the Court’s Gender Equality Program. She holds an LLB from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) with highest honors and an LLM from Harvard Law School (waived). She is a frequent contributor to the Mexican magazine Nexos.
