SMU Annual Texas Survey
 

Published annually, the SMU Annual Texas Survey serves as a tool to legal practitioners in the development of Texas Jurisprudence. Each issue includes articles from law professors, attorneys, and judges concerning a concise presentation of the present state of Texas law.

The SMU Annual Texas Survey began in 1967 as the Annual Survey of Texas Law, an annual project of the SMU Law Review. The journal then published as an independent online publication in 2014 and has since been published under the name SMU Annual Texas Survey. All editing is done by student members of the board of editors and the staff of the SMU Law Review Association. The Association also publishes the SMU Law Review and the Journal of Air Law and Commerce.
