Texas International Law Journal

Caring about countries other than Texas since 1965

The Journal is among the oldest and best-established student-published international law journals in the United States.  In the wake of the Bay of Pigs disaster and the Cuban Missile Crisis, the publication began as an offshoot of the University of Texas International Law Society.  In January 1965, under the guidance of Professor E. Ernest Goldstein, we planted the Texas flag in the international arena with our first issue, entitled The Journal of the University of Texas International Law Society.  Publications thereafter were biannual, taking the name Texas International Law Forum until summer 1971, when the Journal adopted its present title and began publishing three or four issues per year.  Of the more than eighty student-published international law journals across the country, only three schools have an older international heritage:  Harvard, Columbia, and Virginia.
