Additional Information for Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights
The Texas Journal On Civil Liberties & Civil Rights (TJCLCR) is an excellent source of information on current issues in civil rights and constitutional law.
The Journal was formed in 1992 by a group of law students wishing to facilitate a scholarly discussion on the state of civil rights in America by publishing cutting edge articles at the intersection of law, politics, and society written by judges, lawyers, professors and fellow students. We receive funding, guidance and a healthy subscriber base from members of the Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section of the State Bar of Texas.
Past issues have included a colloquy on the Hopwood decision, as well as articles discussing a theoretical and historical analysis of First Amendment definitions of religion, federal courts' application of strict scrutiny to racial preferences in public education, and the use of civil rights litigation to address race discrimination and inequalities in health care delivery. The Journal has also published articles discussing an examination of the current legal pedagogy on constitutional law, a response to the Scalia dissent in Lawrence v. Texas, and examination of school safety concerns versus the effects of zero tolerance policies on free speech, and an analysis of the Patriot Act through the lens of First Amendment and Due Process rights.« Back
