Who You Are Sponsoring

Founded in 1965, TILJ continues to publish three to four issues annually.  Our journal contains articles written by scholars, judges, and practitioners, as well as notes written by our own members.  Additionally, we host several social and professional events, including guest lectures and networking events.  Our annual symposium brings together preeminent scholars to discuss timely topics confronting the international and domestic legal markets.

Why Sponsor TILJ

While the student-edited legal periodicals are published under the umbrella of the UT 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; phone service; 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/mixers; annual award banquet; continuing alumni connections.)

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