The Journal

The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights* is one of the premiere civil rights journals in the country. The Journal was founded in 1992 at the University of Texas School of Law. The Journal sought to provide information on the status of civil rights law and analyses of the relevant issues surrounding these laws.

The Journal is published twice a year with support from the Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section of the State Bar of Texas as well as private donors.  The Journal is run by law students and is overseen by a Board of Advisors consisting of academics, judges, and civil rights practitioners throughout the state of Texas.

In addition to our biannual publication, the Journal hosts an annual symposium featuring civil rights scholars from around the nation.  We also host speeches, brown bag events, and other opportunities to expose law students to this important area of law. 

*Prior to Fall 2003 the Journal was known as the Texas Forum on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights.
