Texas Wesleyan Journal of Real Property Law
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.
