Page I O March I 998 Freshman Senator Senior Senators Lesli Barber Hi! My name is Lesli Barber and I am a candidate for the office of freshman senator of the Student Bar Association's Board of Governors. 1 am writing this letter to allow the stu- dent body to get to know me and why I feel that I would make a good sena- tor. For starters, I am not a Houston native. I relocated here from West Texas and specifically Midland, Texas in order to obtain a law de- gree. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology degree from the University of Texas of the Permian Ba- sin in July of 1994. As a student at this institution, I was a student senator. Therefore, I do have prior experience which I feel is an asset for the current po- sition that I am seeking. I then received a Master of Arts in Sociology from Baylor University in May of 1997. I am also a single mother with one child named Barry who is ten years old. He currently re- sides with his father in Odessa, Texas. I understand the balanc- i...

March I OQ© Page I I Job Goddess Continued from page 6 focus on - that is, getting a paying position with as large a law firm as possible. There are at least three reasons not to do this. One is that unless you go to one of the tiny handful of schools whose first year students are sought by large firms, you will quickly frustrate yourself by trying to break into their traditional summer clerkship programs. The Job Goddess does not want you to be frustrated; she wants you to be happy and fulfilled. Another, more important reason is that you can get broader experience and much more versatility from other kinds of employers than you can from large firms. Where should you look, the Job Goddess hears you asking? Your happiest hunting grounds are likely to be small firms and judicial internships, and of those two, a judicial internship is likely to open the most doors for you. As you undoubtedly know, there are about a bajillion courts, between the federal court system, states, municipal ...

Rage Reversible Error March I 990 Parting Shots Editor's Note: The following editorial is a special to Annotations. All views by the author are supported by the Annotations editorial board. In writing this article, I could have asked the faculty to account for it's selection, and explain their criteria for commencement speakers, but I ran across two obstacles. One, I was confronted with the problem of whom among the schools approxi- mately 37 Deans to ask. The second obstacle was the track record of the administration in listen- ing to addressing student concerns. The response last fall by the administration to the student petition concerning May/Decem- ber graduations included as a factor that the admin- istration hoped, by consolidating graduation ceremonies, to bring more widely known speakers to the ceremony. In theory that is a good idea. In practice, we get Donald E. Powell, Chairman of the Board of Regents - Texas A&M University System. Now this is not to slight Mr. Powel...

Prepaid plans are available to consumers through employers, labor unions, credit card com- panies, and even auto as- sociations. Simple access plans entitle members to unlimited telephone advice from hotline attor- neys. Comprehensive plans are more like health insurance, reimbursing members for covered matters like wills, clos- ings, and divorces, or paying members' law- yers directly based on a schedule of fixed fees for each service. Some plans provide a closed list of pre-selected attorneys who must be used, while others permit payment to any attorney selected by the member. The Ameri- can Automobile Associa- tion uses this method to reimburse members $50 to $300 for traffic court representation by any lawyer.

August i 996 Affiliation not affected by Coordinating Board decision News\ Page 2 By Frank T. Read President and Dean On July 16, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board voted 15-2 against adding law to the table of programs for Texas A&M University. This vote does not affect the affiliation signed between Texas A&M and South Texas in January. The request to add law to the Texas A&M table of programs was denied amid groundless concerns that South Texas would eventually seek state appropriations. An offer to make any approval condi- tioned on South Texas remain- ing private, apparently fell on deaf ears. Texas A&M plans to lobby the coordinating board for adoption of guidelines dealing with public-private partnerships in the next legisla- tive session before reapplying to add law to the table of programs. The approval is needed before South Texas students can receive diplomas with the Texas A&M name. Other terms of the affiliation agreement are being carried...

August I 996 News Page a Don't count out the Career Services Office when considering smaller firms Many students seem to have the misconception that the Career Services Office caters only to the large firms. We'd like to take this opportunity to inform you about what we do to promote relations with the small and mid-sized firms, as well as provide you with some general information about their hiring practices. Hiring Practices The small firms do not customarily participate in the formal on-campus interviews because they are not able to predict their hiring needs so far in advance, and they do not have set hiring patterns like the larger firms that commonly participate. In addition, on- campus interviews can be time- consuming and costly. Conse- quently, smaller employers will typically list their immediate student and graduate openings through avenues such as our law clcrk board and Graduate Placement Bulletin, respec- tively. The CSO posts approxi- mately 500 student positions and ...

Page 5 News August I 990 Affiliation Board echoed this opinion calling the agreement void while enlisting the aid of Attorney General Dan Morales who also called the deal illegal. Though Morales' comments were made as counsel for the Coordinating Board and not as an advisory opinion from the Attorney General's office, a shadow was cast on the union sug- gesting the two schools eloped without required permission - from the Coor- dinating Board. "They should have come to us first," said Leonard Rauch, Coordinating Board Chair- man. Rauch explained that because Texas A&M does not presently have the authority to issue a law degree, it was obligated to seek approval of the board first. However, both Zamora and Rauch were aware of the affiliation as both met with South Texas officials prior to the signing. Furthermore, South Texas sued the Coordi- nating Board in April claim- ing the board has no legal say in whether the affiliation is sound or not. Citing the Texas Constitution and t...

August I 998 Getting started A student's view on law school preparation OpinioISÍ Page 6 By Jennifer Hyatt O'Neil Editor Welcome to South Texas! This is an exciting year for South Texas, as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary! There are lots of events planned, starting with an anniversary edition of the Annual Alumni Association Golf Tournament on September 23, 1998. On September 24, 1998, a symposium is sched- uled at South Texas entitled The Lawyer's Duty to Promote the Common Good. Check the STCL website at www.stcl.edu for the 75,h Anniversary link for more information! It is not difficult to recall the feelings I had at the beginning of my law school experience. The dance I did around my house for a week after I was accepted to law school soon turned into what felt like the belabored drag of Quaz/.imoto. The excitement of moving to a new city, going back to school again, and taking on this new "challenge" was soon replaced by constant anxiety and exhaustion. I often wondered if 1...

September i 998 Page 2 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/BRJ's First Year Program to gain the edge need...

Does it matter President Clinton lied to the American public about his personal life, or should scrutiny of the Presidency extend into the bedroom? This month, our constitutional law professors speak out on some of the constitutional issues raised by the continuing saga in the White House. Series of failures in an imperfect institution Ultimately, the legal issues arising from the Jones case and Starr's investigation should be viewed as a series of failures by individuals working within imperfect institutions.

Paoe 5 September I 998 Even the respected can fall prey to allure of power The Jones v. Clinton case and Judge Starr's Investigation remind me of the wisdom of two famous aphorisms: (1) The Supreme Court is final not because they are infallible, but is infallible because they are final; and (2) Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The first aphorism applies to the Supreme Court's decision in Clinton v. Jones. There, the Supreme Court assured the Nation that the Jones lawsuit and its related matters were not likely to distract the President or the Nation, in part because "[m]ost frivolous and vexatious litigation is terminated at the pleading stage or on sum- mary judgment, with little if any personal involvement by the defendant." The district court judge in the case, perhaps better attuned to the realities of trial practice, and the time and cost of defending even cases which are thrown out at the pleading or summary judgment stage, had ruled that the Pre...
