TILJ remains the premier specialty journal at Texas Law and continues to thrive.  This past year, the Journal published four issues to achieve the journal’s mission of providing the highest quality secondary source material on current international legal developments.  Our 2016 Symposium, "Navigating Conflicts with Non-State Actors," was a great success.

Help make this year better!   We need your help to plan and pull off yet another Symposium.


Why Sponsor TILJ

While the student-edited legal periodicals are published under the umbrella of the Texas Law Publications department, no financial support is guaranteed by the University. Managing the financial realities of TILJ poses unique challenges.  Expenses include:

• An annual symposium (marketing; speaker fees; guest travel and board; venue rental and catering); • Administration (computer hardware and software for editing and other pre-publication tasks; office supplies, such as copy paper, pens, Bluebooks; shipping and postage costs; and printing/photocopies); • Article distribution (making hardcopy and electronic media available; and creating abstracts and archives); • General marketing (web service and maintenance; online payment management; communications; and solicitations); • Development (staff recruitment and recognition; socials events; annual award banquet; continuing alumni connections).

Your contribution relieves these pressures, enabling TILJ to continue its tradition of journal excellence.
