The Legal Research Board focuses on providing legal memoranda to licensed attorneys. Whatever your legal research needs, the LRB offers a cost-effective solution. We regularly provide memoranda answering the most challenging of legal questions across a wide range of practice areas, as our members possess an array of legal experience and expertise. We also stand ready to provide a disinterested second opinion or locate legal authority. In any of its myriad capacities, the LRB provides economical access to its virtually unlimited research resources.
The LRB consistently adds value to law practices across the country. We are able to do this by leveraging the collective skills and resources of some of the nation’s most talented law students. The LRB is unique among student organizations in that it provides first rate legal research support to attorneys across all practice areas at an unheard of value.
The LRB owes its success, in part, to its rich history at The University of Texas School of Law. The LRB was founded in 1961 pursuant to a charter by the State Bar of Texas. Membership has always been competitive and highly selective. The first class of members was selected by a write-on competition, the prompt of which was written by Dean W. Page Keeton, himself, and the candidates’ submissions were evaluated against Dean Keeton’s model memorandum. The LRB’s current member selection process places the LRB among the most exclusive student organizations at the law school.
