The Texas Law Review is a student-edited and -produced law review affiliated with the University of Texas School of Law (Austin). It ranks number 10 on Washington & Lee University's list, number 11 on Google Scholar's list of top publications in law, and number 4 in Mikhail Koulikov's rankings of law reviews by social impact. The Review publishes seven issues per year, six of which include articles, book reviews, essays, commentaries, and notes. The seventh issue is traditionally its symposium issue, which is dedicated to articles on a particular topic. The Review also publishes the Texas Law Review Manual on Usage & Style and the Texas Rules of Form: The Greenbook, both currently in their fourteenth editions. The Texas Law Review is wholly owned by a parent corporation, the Texas Law Review Association, rather than by the school.
Admission to the Review is obtained through a "write-on" process at the end of each academic year. Well over half of each class applies for admission every year and approximately fifty are invited to join. Those selected students join the students from the previous year to form the Review's membership. About twenty of these students constitute the editorial board, which is selected early each spring semester.
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. but abbreviates itself by its own editorial convention as Texas L. Rev.
