Manuel Rodriguez Orellana

Professor Manuel Rodríguez Orellana is the author of several law review articles on Human Rights and International Law, as well as numerous newspaper columns in major newspapers in Puerto Rico and in the U.S. His most recent publication is a personal memoir of selected aspects of his personal and political development, Por Senderos de la Descolonización: Autorretratos (Along Pathways to Decolonization: Self-Portraits, Editorial Patria, Inc. 2011). This book was formally presented for the first time on September 15, 2011, at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan, Puerto Rico by two respected Puerto Rican intellectuals: Constitutional Law scholar Carlos Gorrín, and the internationally renowned writer Ana Lydia Vega. Rodríguez Orellana’s memoir was considered by both presenters as an invitation to young Puerto Ricans in universities on the Island and abroad to reflect about the future of their homeland.
