Page 2 February 1998 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 "anticipation 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 after day until the year 2001? Hopefully, this article 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 exams found on reserve in the library or on the STCL's Web page and also by reading books on legal essay writing. Do not assume (you know what happens when yo...

February 1998 Page 3 Affiliation . . . South Texas President and Dean, Frank T. Read, says this is a win-win situa- tion for Texas. "This is the single finest example of public/private partnership I have seen in higher educa- tion in America." Texas A&M University President, Dr. Ray M. Bowen, notes that an affili- ation with a respected law school will contribute significantly to Texas A&M's goal of establishing itself among the nation's top 10 public universities by the year 2020. "Even if we were authorized by the state to do so, creating a new law school for ourselves would cost, conservatively, $150- million," says Bowen. "With the affiliation we create today, we overcome that challenge in a constructive, widely beneficial manner." "We are especially proud to have this high-visibility presence in Houston, the home of so many of our former students and the area which provides more students annually than any other part of Texas," says Bowen. "We welcome the chance to join ...

Page 4 February 1998 Lawyers Viewpoint By John Ritter Practical Internship for Bar Membership Legal education today does not prepare lawyers to practice law. They lack practical experience to plan, negotiate, draft and advise, as well as to conduct trials and clos- ings. Bar membership must be premised on something more than graduating from law school and passing a bar examination that is merely a summary of three years of legal courses. The history of American legal educa- tion and its relation to Bar membership leads me to recommend a major addition to cur- rent requirements for Bar membership—a period of internship. Before the turn of the century, most legal education in America was not received in law schools. The most common route to the bar was office apprenticeship and "reading the law" in a lawyer's office. Since law schools competed with law offices, formal legal education re- mained oriented toward practice. In the last 75 years, we have done a remarkable aboutface. School...

Page 8 February 1998 Editorial To Ride or Not to Ride. That is the Question. . . by Ken Pajak Editor in Chief V^asey Martin wants to walk. He would give almost anything to be able to walk 18 holes, but he can't. Martin has a severe congenital circulatory disorder, called Klippel- Trenaunay Syndrome, in his right leg. The disor- der makes Martin's right leg swell to three or four times its normal size in minutes when he stands upright. Martin is good enough to play in the PGA Tour, but the rules say that there are no carts allowed. The PGA Tour sympathizes with Martin, yet will not bend its rules to allow Martin to ride in a cart. It's tradition. It's part of the game. It's the rules. The two sides will meet in federal court on February 2, 1998 to decide whether the PGA Tour is in violation of the Americans With Disabili- ties Act because it does not make an accomodation to enable Martin to play with a cart. The PGA Tour believes that its governing board, and not a judge, should dict...

Judge Gist's knowledge, teach- ing ability and sense of humor is an asset to our school The Judge, as we refer to him, teaches Criminal Procedure and Criminal Trial Advocacy at the Law Center. Everybody, and I mean everybody, who works in the criminal justice system receives volumes of mail every week. Some of us probably get more than many celebrities and movie stars. Sometimes, you get those wonderful letters in which somebody thanks you fordoing an especially good job and bringing justice to a case. I generally get about I of those a year!!! But I'm sure others get a lot more. Most of my mail comes from the jail or prison.

Paoe A March I OQ8 South Texas College of Law ADVOCACY By T. Gerald Treece - Director of Advocacy Each semester, stu- dents approach me and ask how to explore their interest in participating in the Advocacy Program on the varsity-team level here at South Texas College of Law of Texas A&M University. Mock Trial and Moot Court are the two basic forms of legal advocacy. MOCK TRIAL advocates prepare a case, either civil or criminal, and then try that case before a judge and a jury. MOOT COURT advocates prepare and submit briefs to and argue before a panel of judges who ask the speakers questions of law. Both types of advo- cates are chosen on a try-out basis but there are certain basics which students can learn and develop in order to have the skills necessary to try-out for these varsity-level teams. Under my direction at STCL of TAMU are two advocacy classes which teach students the funda- mental basics of both trial and appellate arguments: 1. ADVANCED CIVIL LITIGATION (two hours...
