History

The Texas Law Review is a national and international leader in legal scholarship. Texas Law Review is an independent journal, edited and published entirely by students at the University of Texas School of Law. Our seven issues per year contain articles by professors, judges, and practitioners; reviews of important recent books from recognized experts, essays, commentaries; and student written notes. Texas Law Review is currently the ninth most cited legal periodical in federal and state cases in the United States and the thirteenth most cited by legal journals.

The Texas Law Review was founded in 1922 by Professor Leon Green, Professor Ira P. Hildebrand, and Judge Ireland Graves as a non-profit corporation with six contemplated purposes:

Texas Law Review published its first issue in December 1922. Numerous records relating to the founding and formation of the Texas Law Review are housed in the Tarlton Law Library at the University of Texas School of Law. These include the minutes and financial record book (1922–1972), the minutes of the board of trustees (1972–1981), and records relating to incorporation (1967, 1972). Tarlton Library’s Rare Book Reading Room also houses a detailed finding aid to the collection and additional information is contained in the Leon Green Papers, Ira P. Hildebrand Papers, Charles T. McCormick Papers, W. Page Keeton Papers, Helen Hargrave Papers, Law School Subject Vertical Files, and the School of Law Records.
