Page 10 September 1996 STCL students find OI' England jolly By Arthur Grimaldo Staff writer Kim Orsak, president of the Republican Law Soci- ety at South Texas College of Law, attended the Durham, England Study Abroad Pro- gram from June 24 through July 25, 1996. The program was at- tended by about approximately 10 students from South Texas, 40-50 from Cumberland Law School, the school that co- sponsored the program with South Texas, five graduate stu- dents and attorneys from a Bra- zilian L.L.M. program, and one student from the Philippines. She said the flight to England went well, "as good as a nine hour flight can be." A few friends were made along long the way. Some of the Brits made it known that they were not too happy that Americans were there in merry old England. One gentleman said that Americans were unurbanc.

September 1996 Page 11 New wild Westlaw gets mixed reviews By Arthur Grimaldo Staff writer With the dog days of summer, arrived the new Westmate 6.1 to replace the old Westmate 5.2. It has that high-tech, revved up, sleek look to it. On a first look, it seems like your getting ready to sit down at the control panel of the Millennium Falcon rather than a program that surfs through the dry mun- dane records of law that Westmate gives you access to. The program is de- signed to be user friendly, and it is chock full of window icons that are designed to help the user. The new program also allows you to jump from rank to rank easily, and it saves the last seven searches that you made so that you can quickly jump back into previously re- searched materials. So, what are the reac- tions of people who are using 6.1 for the first time? "Yuck," "Terrible," "I hate it," "Where is the DOS version?,"and some other colorful comments that made even this writer blush. However, 1 am sure that the di...

October 1996 Page 3 Fate of old USSR is in IMF's hands Editor's note: Annotations continues its tradition of pub- lishing papers that also ap- pear in Currents: The Inter- national Trade Law Journal. Because of the constraints of the newspaper format, endnotes and citations have been omitted. By Michelle Regal Herrmann Introduction While the fall of the "Iron Curtain" marked the end of the cold war, it marked the beginning of a drastic meta- morphosis for the former So- viet Union. In 1992, the Com- monwealth of Independent States (CIS), guided by Mikhail Gorbcchcv, began the transition from a centrally planned economy to a free mar- ket economy. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have major sources of financial support in the CIS's plan to privatize its economy. The plan, however, has attracted significant criti- cism. The purpose of this paper is to outline (1) the roles of the IMF and the World Bank in CIS privatization, and (2) the problems the CIS faces in...

October 1996 Page 5 Top cop treasures STCL law degree By Hcctor Garza-Trejo Assistant editor When Houston Police Chief Sain Nuchia enrolled at South Texas College of Law, he thought he was just pursu- ing his dream of becoming an attorney. But now, nearly 13 years after graduating with honors, Nuchia is convinced that getting a law degree meant more than just making a dream come true: it multiplied his op- portunities for advancement within the Houston Police De- partment (HPD;) it expanded his professional horizons; and, ultimately, it empowered him to succeed in his law enforcement career. Nuchia, who has been in charge of HPD since 1992, talked about being "A Lawyer as Police Chief' at a conference held Oct. 8, at Joe Green Au- ditorium. Donning the department's traditional blue uniform, he shared candidly his law school experience with South Texas students. "I started out wanting to be a lawyer. I recall that my parents used to tell me, 'son, you argue all the time, maybe you ar...

Page 6 Editorial October 1996 Take the time to cast vote in elections South Texas students must not neglect to vote in the elections on Nov. 5, despite the immediate concerns of attend- ing classes and upcoming final exams. Not only will this coun- try elect a new president, but several local issues will be de- cided in this election. First, the presidential race will decide who will lead this country into the 21 st Cen- tury. The candidates, President Bill Clinton and Sen. Bob Dole, each have their individual strengths and weaknesses. President Clinton en- joys the happy circumstance of being the incumbent president during a period of relative peace and prosperity. While it is true that American troops are spread out across the globe in various peacekeeping missions and economic growth has been sluggish, America is neither at war nor in a recession. Clinton has had both successes and failures. Most notably, his successes include the reduction of the federal deficit and unemployment...

October 1996 Page 7 Law hosts ethics symposium How should lawyers conduct themselves when act- ing as mediators or arbitrators rather than client representa- tives? Can a lawyer-media- tor enter into a confidentiality agreement that excuses any duty to report professional mis- conduct by other lawyers in the mediation process? Should bar associa- tions encourage alternative sys- tems for resolving disputes with a client? Or do such fora merely enlarge the advantage the attorney has over the client in these matters? These are just some of the issues to be addressed by leading academics and practic- ing lawyers at the fourth annual South Texas Law Review Sym- posium on Legal Ethics. As a participant in this symposium, you will benefit from the presentations and panel discussions between na- tionally recognized authorities in the area of legal ethics and dispute resolution. You will have the op- portunity to ask questions and share observations with the speakers in two general ques- ti...

October 1996 Page 11 Summer study abroad gears for 2nd year It is not too early for you to be thinking about your acadcmic plans for this sum- mer. There are several study abroad opportunities for the summer of 1997 in pro- grams being co-sponsored by South Texas College of Law. If that high paying summer clerkship has eluded you, you may want to consider studying in Shimla, India; Durham, England; on the is- land of Malta in the Mediter- ranean Sea or perhaps in Istanbul, Turkey (tentative pro- gram at this point). Even if you have se- cured the high-paying clerk- ship, these programs are 4 or 5 weeks in duration, and maybe you could do both. An important note to remember - if you study abroad through a program co-spon- sored by South Texas, the grades you receive in each course are averaged into your cumulative GPA. Enrolling in programs where we are not a co-sponsor means only the hours earned are transferred and your cumu- lative GPA does not change. Written information on each ...

SOUTH TEXAS I COLLEGE OF LAW I An notations Volume XXV, Number 4 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law November 1996 Read outlines future plan By Mark Bankston Editor Dean Frank T. Read has outlined a plan of action for South Texas College of Law, a plan which began Nov. 14 as the school kicked off the pub- lic fundraising phase of its campaign to construct an an- nex to the law library. Read said the five principal goals of the plan, called "The Coining Together: March to Excellence," will all be achieved by the 1998-99 school year, which will also be the 75th anniversary of South Texas College of Law. "Like a cook, with lots of pots on the stove, you start them at different times to try to bring it all together, so that they're all done at the same time," Read said. The first goal of the plan, called "Power of One," is the campaign to raise $12.5 million to construct a wing to the law library, which will be located where the Garland Walker terrace now exists. Plans a...

November 1996 Page 3 SBA plans faculty evaluations The Student Bar Asso- ciation, in response to numer- ous requests both this semes- ter as well as last year, plans to implement an independent faculty evaluation form lor stu- dents to voice their opinions regarding both courses and professors. The SBA evaluations will be independent from the official evaluations that stu- dents fill out for the Registrar's Office. Unlike the official forms, these will be made avail- able to the student body at large for review and consideration. SBA's evaluation ini- tiative is in no way meant as a hostile response to the South Texas faculty or administration's decision to prohibit students from viewing official faculty evaluations. It will merely be implemented to provide stu- dents with more information than they presently have avail- able in selecting their courses and professors. The SBA will make every effort to create a system Counseling tourney set for Jan. South Texas College of Law Intramu...
