The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights* was founded in 1992 at the University of Texas School of Law and is one of the premier civil liberties and civil rights journals in the country. The Journal seeks to provide information on the status of civil liberties and civil rights and to provide analyses of the relevant issues surrounding these areas of law. 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 an Advisory Board consisting of leading practitioners throughout the state of Texas.

In addition to our biannual publication, the Journal hosts an annual conference featuring scholars from around the nation. Additionally, the Journal hosts speeches, brown bag events, and other opportunities to expose law students to these important areas of law.

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