The Texas A&M Journal of Property Law is a scholarly publication dedicated to promoting academic discussions of property law. The journal explores the relationships arising from ownership, possession and use of property. Because of the inherent connectivity between property law and other disciplines, Texas A&M Journal of Property Law aims to:
- provide an expanded lens to view, discuss and understand these complexities, and
- facilitate thoughtful and intelligent discourse of national, state and local issues that shape the field of property law today.
See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
The Texas A&M Law Review publishes several issues annually. The Law Review encourages legal scholarship on issues of interest to academic scholars, law students, practicing lawyers and judges. To this end, the Texas A&M Law Review selects, edits and publishes quality scholarship, and it also hosts symposia on current legal topics and significant developments. In addition to publishing pieces by preeminent scholars on cutting-edge topics, the Law Review also publishes scholarly work written by its student members after rigorous peer review by the Board of Editors.

The Texas Wesleyan Journal of Real Property Law was founded in 2011 by Jessica DeWitt, E. Keeton Monahan, Jill Smith and Jason Wright.
The nascent Journal of Real Property Law originated as the Whiteacre group: four 2Ls, meeting in a study room, working on a proposal to the dean for a second student publication. With varying backgrounds in mass communications, cinema and public relations, the group had broad interests. After surveying the topics of Texas, regional, and national journals, the students found no existing niche for student-edited articles about issues affecting property owners. With this in mind, it became the policy of the Journal to place special emphasis on matters pertaining to real property.
In 2013, when Texas A&M University acquired Texas Wesleyan Law, the Journal became the Texas A&M University Journal of Real Property Law.
In 2015, The Executive Board of the Journal of Real Property Law removed the word ‘Real’ from the Journal’s title, thus broadening the focus from solely real property to encompass all types of property including chattel and intellectual.
The Texas Wesleyan Law Review published 19 volumes of legal scholarship as part of the Texas Wesleyan School of Law, beginning with its first issue in the spring of 1994 and concluding with its final issue in the spring of 2013. In August 2013, Texas A&M University acquired Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, forming Texas A&M University School of Law. Respectively, the Texas Wesleyan Law Review became the Texas A&M Law Review in the fall of 2013.
