The Houston Law Review is ranked 42nd out of more than 1,680 worldwide law journals by the 2011 Washington & Lee law journal rankings. According to Washington & Lee, the Houston Law Review ranks in the top 2.5% internationally and is the second-ranked legal journal in the state of Texas. The Review has now been ranked among the top 50 worldwide in each of Washington & Lee’s historical annual surveys, which date back to 2004. The rankings are based on the number of times academics and judges have cited Houston Law Review articles in court opinions and other scholarly articles.
The Review’s consistently high rankings are due to institutional pride, constant hard work, and the continued support of a number of people and organizations—the Frankel Family Foundation, the University of Houston Institute for Intellectual Property & Information Law, the Houston Law Review Board of Directors, the Houston Law Review Alumni Association, and the University of Houston Law Center faculty. The Review wishes to thank these organizations and their members, as well as all former student editors, who have worked countless hours to ensure the continued high quality of the Houston Law Review.
