History and Overview

The Texas International Law Journal is a student-edited law journal at the University of Texas School of Law. The Journal is the fourth-oldest student-edited international law journal in the United States. For more than four decades, the Journal has earned acclaim and recognition as one of the top international/specialty journals in the nation, and its success reflects the outstanding effort and dedication of more than one hundred student members at the University of Texas School of Law.

The Journal was created in the wake of the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis with the encouragement and support of Professor E. Ernest Goldstein. It published its first issue in January 1965 and has been in continuous publication since. It has achieved one of the largest distributions in its category and continues to attract noted authors, including former United States Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas. Over the years, the Journal has been cited by courts at all levels, including the Texas Supreme Court.

Additionally, the Journal organizes a symposium every year, with preeminent speakers from the United States and around the world. Past symposia have centered around cutting-edge topics in the international forum. Recent titles include: A Conference on the Military Commissions Act; Representing Culture, Translating Human Rights; Judicialization and Globalization of the Judiciary; Symposium on International Litigation Honoring Russell J. Weintraub; International Symposium in Honor of Hans Baade: Teaching and Practicing Law in the 21st Century; Energy and International Law: Development, Litigation, and Regulation; Human Reproduction and International Law; and International Bankruptcy Law: Comparative and Transnational Approaches.


Volume 44 of the Texas International Law Journal published three issues throughout the course of the 2008–2009 academic year.


The Texas International Law Journal (TILJ) organizes a symposium each year on a different area of International law.

March 27–28, 2008, Texas International Law Journal organized a symposium entitled, Transport Law for the 21st Century: The New UNCITRAL Convention. This symposium covered issues related to the ratification of the new Convention on the Carriage of Goods by Sea in anticipation of the January 14–25, 2009 ratification in Vienna. Presentations from the conference provided a rare opportunity for commentary and notes on the Articles of the Convention from the drafters themselves, providing primary sources for interpreting and explaining the new convention.

February 26-27, 2009, TILJ held a symposium entitled, China’s Emergence: Effects on Trade, Investment, and Regulatory Law.


As of May 30, 2008, there were 118 student members on the Journal.
