The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights (formerly Texas Forum on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights) is an excellent source of information on current issues in civil liberties and civil rights law.  The Journal was founded in 1992 when a group of law students who gathered to discuss the state of rights and liberties in the United States 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.

To that end, the Journal is published twice a year in conjunction with Individual Rights and Responsibilities (IRR) Section of the State Bar of Texas. The Journal is also available on Westlaw, Lexis, and HeinOnline, and is carried by the majority of important institutions. Additionally, the Journal holds an annual conference and other events related to civil liberties and civil rights.

The Journal is run by law students and accepts 1L, 2L, 3L, and LLM students. Interested students can join at the beginnings of the fall and spring semesters and the summer write-on. For more information, contact the editor in chief at
