SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW An notations Volume XXIV, Number 5 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law January 1996 Board shifts library plans By Mark Bankston Editor Be content with the South Texas Law Library in its present form. It's going to be here a while. South Texas officials at the Dec. 5 board meeting scrapped plans to build a new $25 million library adjacent to the law school in lieu of a $10 million addition to the current library, said Dean Tom Read. A private fundraising campaign targeting well-heeled individual donors has resulted in $4.5 million in donations thus far, Read said. Because of the giant price tag on a new li- brary and the relatively low amount of money coming in, officials decided to recraft the fundraising campaign and go with the smaller priced library addition. Originally, plans were to build a spacious, traditional law litirary on a lot adjacent to the law school, which would have featured significantly more shelf space for books and stud...

January 1996 Page 3 Library— continued from page 1 lie phase of the library ñindraising cam- paign should get underway next fall and will include raising money for other things such as endowed scholarships and endowed faculty chairs and profes- sorships. In a related matter, the school has hired Kim Parker as the new Vice President for Development, Read said. "Kim Parker has held a key position with the American Bar Association's highly successful CEELI program (Central and Eastern European Law Initiative)," Read said. "In that capacity, she has raised a substantial number of grants from private practi- tioners, law schools and the federal gov- ernment. She is adept at dealing with highly placed persons in the legal pro- fession." In other hiring news, the school Law Review symposium focuses on third parties has made offers to five individuals to fill faculty positions, one of whom has already accepted.

January 1996 Page 7 Moya represents U.S. atenviro-seminar By Arthur Grimaldo Contributing writer On Oct. 25-27, 1995, the United Nations sponsored the Seminario Interamericano sobre la Responsabilidad por el Daño Ambiental, the "Interamerican Seminar on the Responsibility for Environ- mental Damage" in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The seminar's purpose was to help underdeveloped Latin American and Caribbean nations address the problems associated with the environ- ment, environmental law and the implementation of a regu- latory system to monitor both. The participating countries main concern was how they would be able to best strike a balance between the in- terests of environmental protec- tion and the growth of indus- trial technology in their respec- tive nations. Brazil and Chile voiced concerns that major de- veloped nations are sending their hazardous waste to third world countries knowing that it will not be properly disposed. What these developing nations lack the most are people ...

He had a 60 year association with the school and was one of the strongest driving forces behind the institution. Judge Bell's father, the Coryell County Judge and a state rep- resentative who served with Lyndon Bell Johnson's father, ingrained in him a sense of ethics, hard work, and love of the law. He graduated from the University of Texas in 1933, and as an attorney he pros- ecuted the high-profile assas- sination of Jake Floyd, Sr. His illustrious career also included positions as Assistant District Attorney, Harris County; First Assistant City Attorney, City of Houston; State Prosecuting Attorney before the Criminal Court of Appeals, Austin; Judge of the 125th District Court; Chief Just...

February 1996 Page 3 ABA/LSD drives for members By Rcbecca Eplcn ABA Representative The American Bar As- sociation Law Student Division (ABA/LSD) has issued a chal- lenge to law schools nation- wide. The ABA/LSD has chal- lenged all law schools to in- crease their student member- ship. Schools are competing with each other to gain national recognition from the ABA/ LSD as being the school with the highest percentage of stu- dent enrollment. Schools have also been urged to compete with themselves by setting an enroll- ment goal and then surpassing it. The STCL Student Bar As- sociation has accepted this challenge. Last year, 24.5 percent of STCL's student body was enrolled in the ABA/LSD. STCL has set a goal of having a 50 percent ABA/LSD mem- bership enrollment by March 15. As of Dec. 31, 1995, STCL had a 36.4 percent mem- bership enrollment—almost a 12 percent increase. Over 470 STCL stu- dents have already taken ad- vantage of the numerous ben- efits offered by the ABA to law stud...

Dell James I would like to thank you for your attention in my attempt to represent you and the school as President of the Student Bar Association. I am qualified for this position hav- ing been involved in student government organizations throughout my academic ca- reer. Over the last few months I have worked in the Business office which has given me a great opportunity to interact with the student body and to listen to your ideas on how to better your experience at South Texas.

Page 6 February 1996 VICE-PRESIDENT Patsy Yung My name is Patsy Yung, and I am running for the office of vice president. Among other duties, I would like to concentrate on three main areas as vice president. First, 1 would like to continue to fill the 1996-97 SB A calendar with community service projects. As a member of the SBA Community Service Com- mittee, I have actively par- ticipated in a plethora of projects this past year, and have received some good ideas on new projects as well. Second, I would like to promote a sys- tem that addresses student concerns in a manner in which students will be com- fortable expressing their feelings and thoughts on student issues. As a mem- ber of the Student/Faculty Committee, I have brought to the committee student concerns that were heard by faculty members and re- solved; however, I am sure there are other matters of student concern that 1 have not received notice of and therefore, could not bring to the attention of the commit- tee. Third,...

February 1996 Page 7 ABA REPRESENTATIVE Mike Milich After giving much consideration to which (if any) Student Bar Association posi- tion I would run for the 1996/ 1997 academic year, I came to the conclusion that I could best serve the students here at South Texas in the capacity of Ameri- can Bar Association Represen- tative. Let me explain. During my service with the SBA as a Freshman Senator I have had the oppor- tunity to watch others do their jobs, and I have tried to do my job. To a great extent the at- mosphere in which SBA rep- resentatives work is one of trial and error. As a result, the first course of action taken does not always get the job done. The point is that with trial and er- ror comes experience, and I believe that my experience on the SBA recommends me as a candidate for the position of American Bar Association (ABA) Representative. A law school's mem- bership level with the ABA is extremely important if that school hopes to be taken seri- ously on the national ...

Page 8 February 1996 Doug Atkinson My name is Doug Atkinson. I am a candidate for the office of Freshman Sena- tor of the Student Bar Associa- tion. As a candidate I envision three priorities for the SB A: First, the planning and organiz- ing orientation for entering stu- dents at South Texas; Second, representing the interests of the Freshman class to the Student Bar Association; and Third, the implementation of new ideas to benefit students. Planning and organizing orientation is vitally important because it is the first real ex- perience new students have with South Texas. One aspect of orienta- tion that I would improve is the mentor program. It is an in- valuable program and the im- portance of new students get- ting and meeting their mentors should be emphasized. Many members of my section did not contact their mentors and lost a valuable op- portunity to network and con- fer with older students. Representing the interests of the Freshman class is a vital role of this office. ...
