The Texas Law Review is a student-edited and produced law review published by the University of Texas School of Law (Austin). It publishes 7 issues per academic year, ranks number 9 on Washington & Lee University's list, and ranks number 4 in Mikhail Koulikov's rankings of law reviews by social impact. Each year, six of the seven issues of the review include articles, book reviews, essays, commentaries, and notes. The seventh issue is traditionally the symposium issue, which is dedicated to articles on a particular topic. The review also publishes the Texas Manual on Usage and Style, currently in its 12th edition.
Admission to the review is obtained through a "write-on" process at the end of each academic year. Of the nearly 300-400 students that apply to the Law Review each year, 50 are invited to join. Those selected students join the 50 from the previous year to form the review's membership. About twenty of these students constitute the editorial board, which is selected each February.
The Texas Law Review was established in December 1922 by Leon A. Green, Ira P. Hildebrand, and Ireland Graves. Its Bluebook abbreviation is Tex. L. Rev.
