The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights began as the Texas Forum on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights in 1992 at the University of Texas School of Law, and is one of the premiere civil liberties and civil rights journals in the country. The Journal is published twice a year by law students and overseen by an Advisory Board consisting of leading practitioners and academics throughout the state of Texas. The Journal is supported by the Civil Liberties and Civil Rights Section of the State Bar of Texas as well as private donors. The Journal also hosts an annual conference featuring scholars and practitioners from around the nation.
