Volume XIII, Number 7 SOUTH TEXAS SBA Elections 1995 COLLEGE OF LAW ANNOTATIONS It's election time; your vote counts By WILL BURDINE SBA President Well, it's lhat time ofyear again. The S.B.A. elections are upon us, and that means it's time to cast your vote. The polls will be open on Wednesday, March 22, and Thursday, March 23, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Run-ofTelections will be held Tuesday, March 28, and Wednesday, March 29. The voting booth will be set up in the atrium, underneath the stairs where the posters are lo- cated. The winners will be announced on Thursday, March 30, and the new officers will be officially recognized at the Spring Banquet on April 1. It is extremely important that all students participate in the election pro- cess. Officers in the SBA hold a unique position in that once they are elected, they represent the entire student body. The Student Bar officers serve as your representatives in a variety of situations, so it is important that your choices re- flect ca...

Page 2 introducing: The candidates far JENNY DEPONTE This is theyear to DO IT RIG HT!! My name is Jenneite (Jenny) DePonte and I am running for the office of Presi- dent. My GOALS as President would include, but are not limited to: (1) Establish an excellent relation- ship with Dean Read. I am confident that I can establish this relationship and use my diplomacy skills to fight for our stu- dent rights and needs! (2) If elected, I plan to increase student awareness and interaction with the student bar. I propose that once a month there should be a Voice Your Concerns Forum in which all students are welcome to participate. The purpose of this meeting would be to make your officers aware of the problems students are facing whether it be with faculty, administration, or other student organi- zations. Once a complaint has been voiced, I would assign an officer to represent the student's concern. (3) I want to revise Orientation so that it would be more effective and so that it would giv...

Page 3 SB ft President, /99S-96 LEEANNE RICHARDSON My name is LeeAnne Richardson. I would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for president of the Student Bar Asso- ciation. I started at South Texas in Janu- ary, 1994.1 began as a part-time student and switched to full-time last fall. Last semester I worked in the Career Devel- opment Office. I am on the SB A as a 1L senator. I am a highly motivated indi- vidual with big ideas. I feel that my experience as a "part-timer," who had also worked in the "real world," uniquely qualifies me to represent our varied stu- dent body. I have noticed that there are some positive changes/additions that could be made in the following areas: 1. Student/student relations - make friends now & networking will get easier as each class graduates. The more friends you make in here — the better oifyou'll be out there. 2.. Student/Staff relations - with the many stressful financial aid, registration and other administrative details w...

Page 4 LAURI ANDRESS As Secretary my goal will be to increase the effort that the Board expends on behalf of South Texas students. To do this I will support and recommend initiatives that help the Board heighten its level of contact with students. Essen- tially, the SB A should be the organi- zation to assist you in addressing issues. To accomplish this task the Student Bar Association must com- municate with you. Asstudents ourprimary con- cerns are: access to classes at times convenient to us; the aiTordability of these classes; and employment upon graduation. I was able to ascertain these basic concerns simply by talk- ing to my colleagues. It is the re- sponsibility of the SBA to do the same by establishing a dialogue with students. My observations on enhanc- ing the communications function of the SBA are based on service to the organization as a first year repre- sentative for Section B. Addition- ally, prior experience as advisor to several public officials in the field of com...

SAMEER AHMED Wandering the halls last semes- ter, I'd look up every so often and see a poster that said "Atrium Party spon- sored by the SB. A." O.K., so just what exactly is the S. B. A. ? The more of these posters I saw, the more I thought the Student "Bar" Association was just a group of drinking buddies. The S B. A. should serve as a liaison between the students and faculty of South Texas as well as a link to the State Bar of Texas and the American Bar Association. As a student, I want to know who to address my concerns to and I want to know that someone cares and will do whatever he or she can do to address those concerns. I would like to turn the S B. A. into an organization that does more than just throw parties. I would like to see the same effort and enthusiasm put into g...

Page 6 ° * The students who are elected senators of their classes will plan social and academicfunctions unique to their class. 'The seni or senators plan the winter and spring gradua- tions; the freshmen senators organize orientation and the freshman mentor program; and the mid-law senators promote school-widefunctions and paties. STCfstudents will elect two senators to represent each class. CALLEY CALLAHAN My name is Calley Callahan and I am running for the office of SBA Senior Senator. The responsibilities of the two senior senators involve both beginnings and endings. The senior sena- tors are responsible for "beginnings" by helping first year students acclimate to law school through an organized and well-advised orientation program. Addi- tionally, the senior senators are respon- sible for "endings" because they assist in arranging and planning the December and May/August graduation programs. Most of us can remember the anticipa- tion and anxiety we felt the first day of law sc...

Page 7 WENDELL M. CHAMPION Background: United States Military Academy, West Point,N.Y., 1986 Former U.S. Army Officer Corporate Sales Representative Captain, U.S. Army Reserves The focus of my candidacy is to help the Student Bar Association enhance student camaraderie and the esprit de corps of our student body at STCL. I realize that the challenging and competitive nature of our law school environment often makes it difficult for us to focus beyond the immediate re- quirements of academia. Yet, I also realize that to actualize our fullest poten- tial as aspiring legal professionals, we must balance our academic experiences with positive, effective and enjoyable interaction with our colleagues, the STCL faculty, STCL Alumni and other mem- bers of the legal community. My com- mitment to you is to compliment the current SBA-sponsored functions with more substantive and invaluable student body activities. First, we must create efficient means of communication between the SB A and indi...

February 1995 SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW Page 1 ANNOTATIONS Students and faculty give passing marks to letter-grading system By ARTHUR GRIMALDO Although they are not quite used to it yet, STCL students and faculty gave generally passing scores to the A-B-C grade system, which was launched with the posting of fall exam results. Part-time student Gary Linthicum said letter grades are a good idea overall, but inflates the grading system for students who are caught in the transition. "It was a little difficult to ad- just to at first," Professor Jean Powers said. "I graded the exams the same way (as in past semesters) to get the raw score, but I had to spend more time on where the division between the grades would be." However, she said she believes the letter-grade system will prove to be the better method in the long run. So it seemed to the students who huddled around the grade boards, noticing the unexpectedly high num- ber of As and Bs and apparent dearth ofDsandFs. However, Powers...

A 3L's brush with greatness STCL student's mom visits Oprah By BRIAN CASEY I would like to announce with great pride the publication of "The Rapist's Wife by Kathryn Casey, my mother. It's her first book, a true- crime book recounting the coura- geous struggle of a Houston-area woman, Linda Bergstrom, who dis- covered her husband was a serial rapist. Linda attempted to alert Hous- ton police for two years before her concerns were taken seriously. When her husband, James Bergstrom, was arrested in March 1992, he admitted attacking as many as 30 women in the Houston area. He is now serving a 99-year prison sentence. Apparently, the book is gen- erating interest ...

February 1995 Enrollment goal is met with slight student dip By WILLIAM L. WILKS The new semester has be- gun. Graduation went smoothly. Alumna JanisJack,judgeoftheU.S. District Court in Corpus Christi, de- livered the commencement address, which was personal and marvelously brief. We will miss the 145 seniors who graduated, but welcome the 105 new students who replaced them. This 40-student drop brings us down to a student population of 1,250, which has been our goal for some time. This school had a student population of more than 1,400 just three years ago and the faculty be- lieves that 1,250 is closer to an opti- mum number for this fine school. David Cowan is now aboard as the new director of our law library. Don't hesitate to drop in and see what a reformed Baylor librarian looks like. He would be glad to chat with you about your concerns and about his plans for the coming years. The dean has gained perhaps 20 pounds over the past several months for a good cause. Various direc...

Page 4 February 1995 It's never too late for resolutions By ALLISON WATERS It's only a month into the new year, but with hectic school and work schedules, many of you are probably beginning to slack off on your New Year's Resolutions such as studying more efficiently, exercising more often, saving more money, etc. For those of you who have not yet made any New Year's resolutions, or those of you who have decided that your original resolution is a little boring, South Texas offers an excellent op- portunity for you to make good on a resolution and help your community at the same time: the Travis Elemen- tary Tutor Program. Professor Rich- ard Carlson coordinates this program, which pairs South Texas students with Houston elementary school chil- dren who need tutoring assistance. Second-year student Ginger Durham volunteers approximately one hour per week at Travis, where she tutors a student named Raul. Raul has improved his grades under Ginger's tutelage and, for the first time, has...

Page 8 February 1995 A view from the front of the class Oil & gas prof energized by teaching experience By JEFFREY STRAUSSER The vast majority of you don't know me; however, I hope, over time, that will change. My name is Jeff Strausser. I am an adjunct pro- fessor. I taught the a section of Oil and Gas Law last fall, and I teach a section this semester. The fall semester was my first time teaching at STCL. In many ways, I felt like I was dropped in from outer space. I didn't have any idea of what to expect. Whenever I first learned about my good fortune of being able to teach here, I was both excited and anxious. Excited, because I love to teach. Anxious, because I knew very little about this place where I was supposed to do that. Whenever I shared my excitement with my col- leagues, many just shook their heads. The story I got from a lot of them was that South Texas was where every- body went that couldn't get into some- where else. Why else would they pay that tuition? The st...

February 1995 Page Bits and Bytes continued from page 2 Macintoshes are the finest personal computers made, and the Apple Powerbook portables are certainly among the best. However, for most law school and law office applica- tions, Apple computers are not a par- ticularly good choice. Almost 90 per- cent of law offices use MS-DOS- based computers, and our law school does not currently offer any support for Apple products. Choosing a Macintosh would make it extremely hard to work jointly with other stu- dents orto move work back and forth between home and school. Most of- fices our students work in expect them to be familiar with MS-DOS computers. Apple's new PowerPC computers may be able to turn the market around, or at least make it easier to move work between Apple and MS-DOS, but until they do, law students and lawyers should prob- ably stick with MS-DOS-based ma- chines.
