While the Texas International Law Journal is published under the umbrella of the University of Texas School of Law Publications Department, the school does not guarantee financial support for the Journal. We publish four issues each year, host symposia with presenters from around the globe, and provide our members with social and professional networking opportunities—all of which is projected to cost $45,000 this year. Additionally we hope to begin offering scholarships and other financial awards to our dedicated members. Maintaining the Journal poses unique financial challenges, and your contribution will go a long way towards ensuring our success.
All donations go toward the operating costs of the Journal. If you would like to make a donation for a specific purpose, or if you have any other questions regarding a donation, please direct your inquires to the the Journal’s Development Director. You may email the Director of Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the TILJ office at (512) 232-1277.
Why Donate to TILJ?
Your donation will directly support the top-tier scholarship published in each issue of the Journal. TILJ has been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court, by high courts all over the world, in nearly every other major law journal in the country, and in emerging media outlets such as the Huffington Post.
Your donation helps bring together a diverse group of students who—individually and collectively—make a direct impact on the Journal, the School of Law, and their communities. Not only do our members publish the TILJ, but they also have leadership roles in other journals, including the Texas Journal of Oil and Gas Law, The Environmental Law Journal, and The Texas Review of Law and Politics. We are also members and leaders of other on-campus organizations including the American Constitution Society, the Federalist Society, the Chicano and Hispanic Law Students’ Association, the Women’s Law Caucus, Assault and Flattery, the Thurgood Marshall Legal Society, the Public Interest Law Association, the Domestic Violence Survivor Support Network, and many others. Our members also volunteer for legal service and community groups, including Street Law, the Austin Bar Association, the ACLU, and the Austin Humane Society.
