The process for becoming a member of the Journal of Real Property Law is open to all first-year Texas A&M University School of Law students and transfer students. Members are selected at the end of their
first year through a blind write-on exercise that tests candidates on their editing skills and legal writing ability. Out of the first-year class and transfer students, roughly twenty membership offers are extended.
Candidates who accept membership offers must serve a two-year commitment to the Journal of Real Property. During their first year, members are part of editing teams that substantively edit, bluebook,
and proofread the content that goes into the Journal of Real Property. During their second year, members become senior editors that lead editing teams and serve on various committees (such as the Articles Committee, the Notes Committee, the Marketing Committee, and the Business Committee). Members
are also responsible for writing a Note or Comment for possible publication. The Journal of Real Property strongly encourages all current Texas A&M University School of Law first-year students to consider
becoming a part of the Journal of Real Property.
