The Houston Business and Tax Law Journal (“HBTLJ”) was established in 2000 at the University of Houston Law Center and became the first student-edited journal in the state of Texas to publish electronic articles.  

The Journal publishes one volume annually, comprising two or three issues, with each issue containing articles written by student members of the Journal and practitioners, including law professors, judges and practicing attorneys.  These articles are selected to serve the scholarly interests of students, academics, and professionals within the national legal community.

The two principal functions of HBTLJ is to supplement the legal education of its members and to contribute to legal scholarship.  The Journal is operated and managed entirely by the University of Houston Law Center students.  Student editors and members select, edit, and publish articles and note, fostering integral skills in legal research and writing.  Moreover, the duties of the editorial board allow members to develop administerial, editorial, and managerial skills.  Our publication focuses on providing legal scholarship in the following areas of business law: Antitrust, Bankruptcy, Corporate Governance, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Mergers & Acquisitions, Securities, and Tax.
