About the Texas Bar Journal
The Texas Bar Journal is the official publication of the State Bar of Texas and the only legal publication mailed to every member of the Texas Bar. With a circulation of 102,000 readers, the magazine is published monthly, except for August. The Texas Bar Journal contains legal articles, State Bar news, features on Texas lawyers, and information on technology and trends in the law. One copy of each issue is furnished to members as part of their State Bar dues.
The Texas Bar Journal Board of Editors — which is composed of attorneys, including representatives from the State Bar Board of Directors, all appointed by the State Bar President — is charged with setting editorial direction for the magazine and reviewing legal article submissions. Board members also contribute articles, coordinate special issues, and help identify authors.
The first issue of the Texas Bar Journal was printed in January 1938, a little more than a year before the State Bar began its formal existence on April 19, 1939. Thanks to an alliance we have with William S. Hein and Co., State Bar members have free access to a complete archive of the Texas Bar Journal, from 1938 to the present.
