April 1997 Page 5 Pro bono is good, but we can do better By Lauri Andress Contributing writer I want to caution my colleagues about the concept of "pro bono" work. In my, never to be humble opinion, I believe that pro bono work as required by the ABA can lead to a false sense of security that we as at- torneys have satisfied our duty to the community. It is my belief that do- ing pro bono work results in the loss of a sense of the ultimate purpose of lawyers as serving the public good, and contrib- uting to and not impeding society's efforts to attain inter- ests and aspirational goals be- yond individual rights. Between 1948 and 1955 a legal scholar by the name of Lon Fuller wrote at least two articles describing the role of attorneys. (Lon L. Fuller, What Law Schools Can Contribute to the Making of Lawyers, 1 J. Legal Educ. 189 and Lon L. Fuller, The Philosophy of Codes of Ethics, 74 Elec. Eng'g 916.) Fuller believed that attor- neys should understand their role and purpose, and t...

SOUTH TEXAS I COLLEGE OF LAW [COLLEGE OF LAW|| Annotation Volume XXVI, Number 1 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law September 1997 Welcome! Dean Read Offers Insight By Dean Frank T.

Dear First Year Student: Congratulations and welcome to law school. Chances are that your first year of law school will be a bit overwhelming. For many students, the endless case briefing, all night study sessions and Socratic method can make things even worse. But rest assured, there is a way to make your first year of law school a little bit easier: BAR/BRI Bar Review's First Year Program. You see, the secret to success in your first year of law school is understanding the "big picture" and being able to fit loosely constructed principles of law together in a meaningful way. Unfortunately, your professors are not going to make it easy for you. As a first year student, you'll need an experienced guide to show you the "big picture" and a way to cut through the fog of details created by thick casebooks, complex hornbooks and class notes. BAR/BRI is your guide. Over 100,000 law students nationwide have relied on BAR/BRI's First Year Program to gain the edge needed in today's challengi...

Page 8 Editorial September 1997 Think Like a Lawyer . . . By Ken Pajak Editor South Texas Col- lege of Law instituted an academic policy change this spring 1997 semester which pertains to aca- demic deficiency and dis- missal. This new policy is better known as the "First Semester Rule."

Additionally, a student would not be eli- gible for readmission un- til 2 years after the dis- missal date.

Page 12 September 1997 One-L Survival Guide by Ken Pajak - Editor Welcome to South Texas! By now you have wiped the sweat from your palms that accumu- lated during the "anticipa- tion period" of being called on for recitation in your first law school class. Get used to it. For now you have survived, but can you cope with the stress and maintain the pace day af- ter day until the year 2000? Hopefully, this ar- ticle will facilitate your journey. CLASSWORK - First, study hard and prepare for class. There is noth- ing worse than sitting in class trying to follow a discussion on a point of law when the only thing you hear is the roar of the jet that just flew over your head because you didn't read the assignment. You are definitely not getting your money's worth at this point. Second, learn how to write legal essays by completing practice ex- ams on reserve in the li- brary and reading books on legal essay writing. Do not assume (you know what happens when you assume) that just because ...

I have compiled them for your convenience. /\s a current student at South Texas College of Law, I am pleased to finally see some major recognition for the quality legal education and excellent courtroom advocacy training the college provides. It is distressing that, despite the numerous state and national advocacy championships, the vast number of alumni serving as well-respected judges and some of the best trial lawyers in the country, the college fails to get the respect in the national rankings it deserves. This is my second year at the college, and I have nothing but praise for the excellent education I am receiving. I am not alone in this opinion. Many students here feel that South Texas is providing them with the proper tools to make them better lawyers. They also feel, as I do, that those compiling the national rankings have not given the c...
