AFAIK, latex-mode is the built-in, very limited LaTeX mode, and
LaTeX-mode is the AUCTeX's one (which is much, much better - think
autocompletion, for instance).  Also the texmathp function.  And
parsing of \usepackage[...]{inputenc}.  And more.

I guess AUCTeX might call latex-mode-hook, too.

PS. Also, don't use \em, \bf & friends.  They are evil.  See e.g.
