September i 998 Opinion Page I O A journey to perspective By Jennifer Hyatt O'Neil Editor Just three months to go until another semester is done... October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. If you didn't know this, you may want to have a quick read, because.I bet there is at least one woman in your life that you love. If you did already know this, I suspect maybe you have an interest in health, or, this issue has somehow touched your life. I fall into both categories. My life before law school involved applied health sciences, but that is not the reason why this particular October is different for me. I have known families whose lives became forever changed the day they got the news about breast cancer. Although I saw the anger and sat through the tears, I always felt like I was on the outside looking in. Although I empathized with their fears, and often questioned what it was we are supposed to learn from such painful experiences, there was still a distance between me and it. Now I...

Professor Helen Jenkins to host television program as part of STCL/A&M affiliation This month, South Texas made its television debut, "Law Talk from STCL", with Profes- sor Helen Jenkins hosting the 30-minute, round table talk show. The first show aired on Friday October 9, 1998 at 8 p.m. on KAMU-TV, the PBS station in College Station. Jenkins said the program is generally aimed at non-lawyers. "Our initial aim is to enhance public awareness of legal issues and to educate." The program includes a call-in period, and "Law Talk on the Street", where Professor Jenkins will go on campus and interview students on various legal questions. "Law Talk" is one of the joint programs between STCL and Texas A&M, as part of the affiliation agreement struck earlier this year. South Texas Professor Mike Wheeler, a member of steering committee charged with developing resource-sharing endeavors with A&M, provided the idea for this project...

October ! 998 News Page A Should law students be required to participate in a period of practical training prior to licensing? A Negativo Voto Many moons ago, Pennsylvania adopted a "praeceptorship" system, requiring new law school graduates to serve a sentence with a praeceptor, a practicing lawyer, before becoming licensed to practice. The system was designed to be a bridge between theory (law school training) and the practicalities of law practice. The system lasted many years. It has been abolished in Pennsylva- nia. Why? 1.Law schools have become more "practical" with various skill courses, clinics and advocacy programs. 2. Some praeceptors were very good; very helpful. Others were not. The praeceptorships therefore were very uneven. Some new graduates were given heavy responsibilities (sometimes too heavy). Others made coffee. Close monitoring by the bar was impossible. 3. Many busy and very fine lawyers were too busy to take on the training of a recent graduate. 4. Many praec...

I also feel it's important for you to know what your fellow students* concerns are and what the SBA is doing about it. Remember, all students at STCL affiliated with Texas A&M University are mem- bers of our SBA upon admission to law school. Below are two update sections which detail some of the progress the SBA has had regarding immediate and year-long student concerns. Immediate Concerns Our "immediate" concerns are those which many students have expressed to me directly or through other members of the board of governors: First, student identity cards.

The point being, because we are so busy, (trying to learn the law) when we finally take the time to go out and relax, there should be no doubt that our time (and money) will be well spent.

Page i i OP/mom October l 99© One professor's power By Terry O'Neill STCL 3L Student I write to air a very disheart- ening experience I had here at South Texas so that other students might be more aware. In the fall '97 semester, I took a required second-year course at night with about 70+ other students. I didn't research the professor first; I simply picked the class because it fit my schedule well. As the semester progressed, I began to regret picking the section I did. One night, a few of the students came in late by probably no more than 10 minutes. The professor told them to leave in no uncertain terms in front of the rest of us. He wouldn't let them come to class because they were late. Later in the semester, the professor men- tioned that he would be video taping a future class. However, he was unsure of how the tape would be made available to the class. Since I was a work-study student in the multimedia department, I raised my hand to explain what the students needed to do ...

The kickoff event ushered in the College's campaign to raise funds for its proposed new campus courtroom, to be named in honor of the long-time advocacy director.
