February 1997 Page 5 Law school is long, difficult process By Arthur Grimaklo Staff writer Something interesting happened over the last month. The article I wrote to the 3Ls caused quite a number of people who knew me to stop me in the halls and tell me how much the article meant to them . . . the majority of those who spoke to me were 2Ls. Thinking about them lead to the realization that in this new semester we have new faces, the 1 Ls. Now, you 2Ls, I have not forgotten you, but there arc some things that need to be said to the new people first. 1 Ls, it is going to be hard, and when it is not hard; it is going to be difficult. Law school is like nothing else you have ever done. It will make you laugh, cry, angry, sad, happy, and at times, it will make you ponder the reasons why you are here. Ask any 2L; they will be more than willing to co-miserate with you. But, I must tell you that the whole law school pro- cess may never make perfect sense, but you will begin to un- derstand i...

Page 6 February 1997 Fraternity Continued from page 5 the preparation of the crucial document. The 30 or so attend- ees of the first seminar heard from Richard Laminack, rep- resenting O'Quinn & Laminack, and Dean Cauthom, representing her experience at Baker & Botts. The next semester the eighty-two attendees were en- lightened again by Richard Laminack, and first time par- ticipants James Maloney, the hiring partner of Baker & Botts, and Ron Mitchell, a sole proprietor. (This seminar was taped by the audio/visual staff and is available in their office for viewing at students conve- nience.) This semester the sponsorship of the resume' seminar, in its new format, was acquiesced to the Career De- velopment Office in lieu of sponsoring other new and de- sired programs. The spring of 1996 also saw the First Bi-Annual Judge's Night. From humble begin- nings the Judge's night invited twenty active judges on the Harris County bench. Unfor- tunately, a scheduling error, not fo...

Page 8 February 1997 I Came To Hie United States Four Years Ago... March 9, 1996 Dear People of PMBR: I am writing this letter in deep appreciation of your help in passing the Feb. 96 Texas Bar Exam. I came to the United States 4 years ago to go to law school. When it comes to my second language English, I always thought of myself as a very slow reader. Naturally, I was extremely worried about the time limitation in completing the MBE. After I took the PMBR three-day course and practiced on the PMBR questions, however, I was surprised to find that I no longer felt serious time pressure. The PMBR course and practice questions truly gave me the realistic picture of precisely what to expect on the MBE. Although my Texas Bar Review course was adequate for the Essays, it was entirely off the mark on the MBE. On the Feb. 96 Texas Bar Exam, I confidently finished each morning and afternoon part of the MBE more than 1 5 minutes before the call. And I got a MBE score of 174 which was absolut...

SBA Election Guide pp 5-10 SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW I An notations Volume XXV, Number 7 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law March 1997 Directory won't have faces By Keith Housholder Contributing writer The 1996-1997 South Texas College of Law Student Directory was sent to the pub- lisher in late February with hopes of distribution the day before spring break or the day after spring break. The direc- tory doesn't include pictures of the student body this year. And, remember "Murphy's Law" still applies. During the spring and summer of 1996 the law school, Phi Alpha Delta Fra- ternity and West Bar Review negotiated a deal in which the Fraternity would produce the student directory and West Pub- lishing would print it. All par- ties involved have put enormous efforts toward this goal with only dubius success. Until last year the law school had received hard cop- ies of photos of entering stu- dents, which it kept on file to use in various school publica- tions, includ...

March 1997 Docket Call Page 3 Board of Advocates South Texas College of Law wins first and second in two out-of-state advocacy competitions. In Chapel Hill, N.C. at the J. Braxton Craven National Constitutional Law Moot Court Competition the South Texas squad defeated Boston College to capture first place. Also, another South Texas team took second place at the William B. Spong Na- tional Constitutional Law Moot Court Competition in Williamsburg, Va. Each moot court team has three members who argue before a three judge panel.

Page 6 March 1997 IBEMT Okey Akpom My name is Okey Akpom, and I would be hon- ored to represent you as vice- president of the SBA. I received my B. Sc. from Texas Wesleyan in 1995. In all elections, candi- dates make promises, but not all deliver. This makes it harder for us to m ake the right choice. A candidate for vice-president should be one who is active in the SBA. I am currently a 1-L Representative, and very in- volved in SBA. During this past year, I attended every SBA meeting and was a voice to those I rep- resented. I would like to con- tinue in a capacity that will give me a greater voice in three ma- jor areas. First is accessibility. The real importance of the SBA is its responsibility to meet the needs and concerns of the en- tire student body. This goal cannot be achieved if SBA of- ficers are not accessible to stu- dents. I will insist that a no- tice board be placed in the atrium area with the names and phone numbers of each elected officer. Several students last s...

It is important that your representative be accessible, a good listener, and most importantly be will- ing to heed your concerns. I am this candidate! Some other goals that I will pursue include : 1) improvement of the orientation program, a) by making changes in the program to in- clude a social event the night before orientation, an "intent to study law" workshop as well as a small group panel session with 2L's and 3L's to address the new student con- cerns 2) expand our intra- mural sports program, 3) encourage stu- dent involvement in the SB A meetings. Having served on the SB A this year, I am fa- miliar with the means in which to accomplish these goals as well as your goals for South Texas.

-f* Page 8 March 1997 i Andrea Stroh My name is Andrea Stroh and I'm running for the position of Senior Senator, Place 2 graduating in May 1998. I am very excited to have the opportunity to run be- cause the Senior Senator has what I think is the most fulfill- ing job at South Texas — over- seeing graduation!! After enduring three long years of reading, writing and recitation, the Class of 1998 deserves to go out with a bang. As Senior Senator, I would be responsible for meet- ing with the administration to select the location and program for the ceremony. In addition, I would arrange for the representative company to take our An- nouncement and Certificate of Appreciation orders so we can be sure that everyone we know knows when and where to be, to witness this milestone in our lives. I look forward to be- ing an active member of the Student Bar Association Board of Governors and will rely on your input and participation to ensure that we have a com- mencement worthy of our ac- com...

I want to be a part of this orga- nization and represent you as a Freshman Senator. My priority project will be to expand the Student Bar Association's outline file. We have all spent valuable time and effort tracking down those all too precious outlines. The Student Bar Association has an outline file that is available to all students, but it is far from complete. As your freshman senator, I would work hard to enlarge this file with a goal of covering at a minimum every bar course from each of the dif- ferent professors that teach them. Additionally, I want to rework the mentor/mentee pro- gram. This program, while a great idea, can do more than provide a first year student with a single point of view during that stressful first two semes- ters. Certain students have strengths in different areas, and we should try and capitalize on this. ...

March 1997 Editorial Pag© 11 Law students should work in our clinics By Hector Garza-Trejo Assistant Editor Taking part in one of South Texas' legal clinics this semester has made me see the great need for pro-bono work and community service. Sadly, however, it has also made me realize that law students don't seem to be interested in these kind of activities. Though I don't know the exact reason the schools clinical programs don't have larger groups of students, I get the impression that it is be- cause students generally feel they don't have the time to take a clinic or they don't think that the time invested in such pro- grams will yield productive results for their legal careers. If these are the reasons, I would say that they are wrong. The HIV Clinic has provided me with more practi- cal knowledge and skills in six weeks than any of the courses I took in the previous four se- mesters. During this short pe- riod, I have had the opportu- nity to interview several cli- ents, decid...

SOUTH TEXAS [COLLEGE OF LAW An notations Volume XXV, Number 8 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law April 1997 Favorite staffer leaves STCL By Hector Garza-Trejo Assistant editor If you are one of those who frequently visited the fi- nancial aid office in the last few semesters you will certainly no- tice that a familiar face is gone. In fact, even if you were one of those who went by that office only once or twice each school term, chances are you will know that I am talk- ing about that lady with short, hair, rosy cheeks and a seem- ingly-permanent tan; the one who worked out of the cubicle behind the receptionist's desk; the one who always greeted stu- dents with a smile, courteous, soft voice, and transparent will- ingness to help them out. That's right. Nadine Boyle is gone. She left Friday, April 11, after giving what she called "a very, very sad two-week notice of resignation." Mrs. Boyle, or Nadine, as most students knew her, said she kept her decision "rather ...

Page 2 April 1997 FAFSA Express makes life easier Current and prospec- tive college students have enough to worry about—ap- plying for federal student aid should be as easy as possible. That's why the U.S. Depart- ment of Education introduced FAFSA Express, the Department's electronic finan- cial aid application. Anyone with access to a computer with Windows 3.1 or higher and a modem can use FAFSA Express to apply for federal student aid. FAFSA Express can be downloaded free of chaige in just minutes from the World Wide Web at www.ed.gov/of- fices/OPE/express.html. Also, many computer labs, libraries, postsecondary schools, job de- velopment centers, and high schools have FAFSA Express on their own computers for public use. On a computer screen, FAFSA Express looks similar to the paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). introductory screens describe the application pro- cess and list what is needed to complete the application.

That and we were out of stuff to fill newsholes. (Hey, except for the baseball caps, it's been a slow news month around here). By Rick Butler Houston, July, 1974 Many questions of na- tional concern have been raised as a result of Watergate. One of these questions involves the discipline and conduct of the legal profession today. As Chesterfield Smith, President of the ABA, said in a speech last year, . . law- yers bear a special responsibil- ity in our society toward the preservation of a free and democratic government." "Yet, the fact is that the public has experienced a growing distrust of the attorney's ability, or willing- ness, to functi...

Page 4 Editorial April 1997 Hats off to AALS By Arthur Grimaldo Staff writer A few weeks ago, the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) inspected our school. The fallout from it was a memo from Dean Read which listed some of the criticisms that the AALS left with the school. Some dealt with stu- dent-professor interaction in the classroom, but the one that ran through the student body like a keg of beverages at the After Finals Bash was the wearing of ball caps in class. At the Spring Ban- quet, Dean Read explained his memo, and even joked that someone using his name had sent it out. His explanation, summarized, was that we have the freedom to wear ball caps, but we should have the wisdom to know when it is appropriate to wear them. Why do ball caps in the classroom cause such a commotion? I have been in a class where students have been asked to remove the offending apparel. The main reason cited, "You would not wear a ball cap into the courtroom because it would be disrespect-...
