URRENTS is the official international trade law journal of South Texas College of Law. It is published bi-annually by the law student members and editors of the Journal and is received by a wide range of subscribers, which include law schools, practitioners, private companies and universities in the U.S. and abroad. The full text of Currents articles are available on Westlaw and Lexis.

Currents focuses on international trade law in its broadest sense. It addresses issues concerning the effects of international trade agreements as well as aspects of international business transactions, including the sale of goods and services, licensing, investment, and dispute settlement. Previous editions have focused on the NAFTA marketplace, the European Union, maritime law, emerging markets and international finance, and oil and gas transactions in Latin America. The goal of the Journal is to present practice oriented articles and notes on up-to-date topics. To this end, Currents welcomes unsolicited manuscripts that emphasize practice-oriented articles on up-to-date topics and suggestions of topics for future editions.

Currents offers its law student members the opportunity to satisfy their substantial writing requirement needed to graduate from South Texas College of Law. Additionally, Currents gives members the opportunity to improve their research and writing skills in dealing with U.S. and foreign law sources. Finally, after one semester of membership, members are eligible to submit their student notes for publication and run for a position on the Currents Editorial Board.
