We are a student-edited law journal based at the University of Texas School of Law. Our membership is made up of a diverse mix of conservative and libertarian first-, second-, and third-year law students. Integral to the life of the journal are our Steering Committee, Board of Advisors, and Board of Directors. 


Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is involved in many of the practical matters related to TROLP’s operations. It assists the Editorial Board in selecting submitted articles, reaching out to the TROLP network for solicited pieces, and distributing published issues to subscribers. Members of the Steering Committee also serve as advisors and mentors to the Editorial Board.

Board of Advisors

The Board of Advisors is a group of TROLP’s key allies who are especially invested in realizing TROLP’s mission-accomplishment. Some members have helped to guide TROLP since our first issue in 1997. Others are new friends. But all are enthusiastic about TROLP’s mission and work, and have generously contributed their time, resources, and counsel to help TROLP succeed.
