The Review of Litigation (at the University of Texas); four issues; unsolicited manuscripts

I like the idea of scholarship that is inherently useful. The Review of Litigation seems like a dynamic place to publish materials that affect the lives of attorneys. Any law journal that introduces itself with the word "pragmatic" has a certain attraction. Moreover, this one is busy, with four issues a year, a clear review process, and a system that seems to make sure the trains run on time. Unsolicited manuscripts are accepted year-round.

A sampling of article titles: here.


From The Review of Litigation website:

at The University of Texas School of Law, The Review of Litigation is a student-managed publication devoted to the process of litigation. The Review balances the interests of academia with pragmatic issues important to practicing attorneys and judges. We publish on topics related to procedure, evidence, trial and appellate advocacy, alternative dispute resolution, and often-litigated substantive law. Published articles not only address issues pertinent to litigation practice, but also comment on substantive and theoretical aspects of the law.

The Review annually publishes four issues, always on time. Articles published in The Review of Litigation are routinely cited in published court decisions. In fact, The Review has recently been ranked as tied for specialty journal by U.S. courts. Our subscription base, includes judges, academics, corporations, firms, libraries, and sole practitioners—m ore outside Texas than within the Lone Star State.

The Review solicits articles for publication year-round, focusing particularly on arguments, issues, and points of view that have not yet received due attention, but would be helpful to lawyers throughout the country. If you are interested in submitting an article for consideration, please review our .
