I tried something similar, but using ToExpression[...,"TeXForm"], likewise removing the trailing "\\" from the original. (I was surprised that Mathematica just ignored the "&", which is evidently in the original expression because that expression is part of a larger LaTeX construct such as a \begin{align}...\end{align). However, I was unable to see how to let Mathematica itself convert the single backslashes, which of course are interpreted as escape symbols, to the needed double-backslashes. The obvious thing, expr = "\ln{H}^{*} &= {X}_{1} {\beta}_{1} + {\alpha}_{1}lnE+ \ {\varepsilon}_{1}"; expr/. "\"->"\\" does not work, of course.
