Texas Forum on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights
Published/Hosted by University of Texas Law School.
The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights (formerly Texas Forum on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights) is a law journal at the University of Texas School of Law. The journal was founded in 1992 when a group of law students who gathered to discuss the state of rights and liberties in America became aware that there was a dearth of information available to those interested in this critical area at the intersection of law, politics, and society. The Journal seeks to fill this void by providing articles written by judges, lawyers, professors, and students that not only inform the reader of the status of civil rights but analyze the issues as well. We also accept submissions for book reviews and developing law summaries. To that end, the Journal is published twice a year in conjunction with Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section of the State Bar of Texas (IRR). The IRR provides us with funding and a readership base of approximately 350 subscribers, and the Journal publishes the IRR"s news and announcements. Journal articles are also available on Westlaw and Lexis, and is carried by the the majority of important institutions. The Journal is run by law students, and is overseen by a Board of Advisors. These sixteen people range from academics to judges to civil rights practitioners throughout the state of Texas. Their experience and knowledge provide us with great insight as to the direction of civil rights law in Texas.
