Book Reviews

The Texas Law Review is committed to providing a forum for the publication of book reviews by academics, judges, and practicing lawyers.

Our general practice is to select books for review in February and March each year, and then solicit reviewers for each book.  However, we also welcome review submissions. We strongly prefer reviews of legal books that will be published in the upcoming year so that the reviews are current. Although we do not impose a limit on the length of the reviews we consider, we prefer and typically publish reviews that are 10,000 words or less.

If you are interested in submitting a book review to the Texas Law Review, please contact  We recommend that any submissions (complete drafts or abstracts) be sent via e-mail in the early spring because the next year’s volume is generally full by the beginning of the summer. We strongly prefer to receive electronic submissions that are uploaded as editable word documents (e.g., .doc or .docx rather than .pdf).
