The Texas Undergraduate Law Review is a biannual law journal edited, published, and distributed entirely by undergraduate students at the University of Texas at Austin. The Texas Undergraduate Law Review seeks to enrich undergraduate students' interests in law school by providing a forum to develop skills essential to legal scholarship.
We give members the experience of working for a law review while raising awareness of current legal issues, encouraging and facilitating academic discourse, and upholding the values of learning, discovery, leadership, academic integrity, and scholarly research.
History & Vision
When the founders of the organization arrived at the University of Texas at Austin, they were amazed by the opportunities available for undergraduate students. Among these opportunities for research and exploration, however, they found no avenue through which students considering law could seriously engage their interests. So, the Texas Undergraduate Law Review was born.
Today, the journal continues to inspire new generations of undergraduate students to explore their interests in law and publish their work in a nationally reviewed journal. Many past members have attended the nation’s most prestigious law schools and secured federal clerkships, accepted job offers from industry-leading firms, and entered a variety of non-profit fields.
The Texas Undergraduate Law Review thanks McMinn Law Firm, an Austin-based personal injury and car accident law firm, for its continued financial support. While the firm's contributions help the Texas Undergraduate Law Review underwrite some of its most important functions, the Texas Undergraduate Law Review retains full editorial autonomy over its journal and other publications.
