Established in 1980 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. While the journal's focus is litigation, our journal staff includes students interested in both litigation and transactional work.
The Review annually publishes four issues (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Symposium). Our Symposium issue is a product of collaboration with the litigation section of the American Association of Law Schools. 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 the third most-cited student-edited specialty journal by U.S. courts. In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court cited one of our articles. Our subscription base includes judges, academics, corporations, firms, libraries, and sole practitioners from Texas and across the nation.
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. Some of the topics in our upcoming volume include bankruptcy auctions, unintended consequences of litigation reform, civil retroactivity, partisan experts, and arbitration.
