August 1999 Features Pag e 5 Navigating Through Your Legal Career By Stuart Vogt Staff Writer If you are like most first- year law students you prob- ably have no idea what type of law you want to practice, and would like some sort of direction, if so, consider a judicial internship. "It is very difficult for many law students to come to a final conclusion on what, when, or where to practice law and would like some guidance," says Jus- tice Tim Taft of the First Court of Appeals. Judicial internships can offer several beneficial things to law students, from resume building to a pos- sible future position or, at least, some direction on your future law career. "There are many differ- ent types of internships on both the state and federal level, and our Chief Justice [Schneider] began his law career through these intern- ships which helped him de- cide on his legal path," says Judge Taft. Judicial interns are as- signed certain cases for judges and will research and write applicable l...

Page 6 Features August 1999 CSO: Finding a Legal Job By Stuart Vogt Staff Writer In the rush of all there is to do in law school, it is sometimes easy to forget that there is a point to all of this work.. Ultimately, find- ing a job in the legal field is the reason most people go to law school. But even with the best grades, finding a legal job is not an easy task . However, if several im- portant steps are taken, that task can at least be manage- able. "Many students enter law school unsure of how they want to use their law degree," says Reginald Green of the Career Service Office. "As career services staff members, we attempt to ex- pose students to the myriad of opportunities in the legal profession." Whether you are a brand new one-L, or third- year veteran, the time to plan your law career is now. And the first step to this is to decided what type of law you'd like to practice, and what kind of environment you'd like to practice in. This can be a difficult decision because ther...

August 1999 Features Page 7 BATTLE OF THE BRIEFS: Book Briefs/Written Briefs the Champion for Success? By Stuart Vogt Staff Writer Contrary to popular opinion, briefing was not de- signed as a form of Medi- eval torture. Rather, the task was implemented by profes- sors to help law students learn to "think like a law- yer." It is important that a law student learn to extract a concise holding, rule and issue from the learned legal- speak of judges who often use confusing language in the simplest of legal conclu- sions. However, it is de- batable whether or not a lengthy, hand-written brief is realistic for all students, all of the time. "A full brief is not always necessary in every circumstance. . students may simply not have time to brief every single case.", says Shawn Divine, J.D., an assistant to T. Gerald Treece. Time management is a significant issue when stu- dents are suddenly faced with several cases to read Langdell from pg. 3 written test scores taken at orientation or ju...

Page 8 Features August 1999 Summer Mock Trial Competition By Sean Palmer Assistant Editor It was more than the Houston heat that made some South Texas stu- dents sweat this summer. Competition was hot and heavy during the Intramu- ral Mock Trial Competi- tion presented by the South Texas College of Law Board of Advocates held early this summer. Sixty-eight students divided into seventeen teams competed in a se- ries of mock trials testing their skills in legal re- search, brief writing and oral advocacy. The finalist round was held on June 24. In the end, there were only two surviving teams. Team #2 was captained by Geoige Weissfisch and included Heidi Dohse, Michelle Brewer, and Travis Bence. Team #9 was captained by Chris- tine Vinh and included Julie Ladner, Denise Adkison and Geoff Kirkshbaum. In a close mock trial of the Leonov v. Easton case, three panel judges held Christine Vinh's Team #9 victorious and awarded them the Sum- mer Mock Trial trophy. "The summer pro- gram went ...

August 1999 Advice from Professors to 1 L's Prof. R. Randell Kelso "Do not let the first month overwhelm you. Study hard, ask questions. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Just keep asking questions." Prof. Sandra Degraw "As a new student you should view the study as the most rigourous adventure of your life! Be prepared: (1) to learn at a level of abstraction you have not experienced before; (2) to encounter many more ques- tions than answers; and (3) to live in a world of constanly changing principles and ideas. The secret I want to share is the need to combine your solitary study with enthusiastic formal or informal group discussions-one without the other is rarely sufficient. The key is putting in the time, attention to detail, skill, persisteance, and interest from day one that is necessary for you to make this the best adventure of your life. And, oh yes, everything takes longer than it ever did before. Prof. Mike Wheeler "It has been my experience that the successful la...

The green flag will fly for the Texaco Grand Prix on Sept. 24-26, and STCL and Texaco representatives ex- pect little to no parking problems this year.

The foreseeable prob- lems are higher daily rates, less available street and ga- rage parking, increased traf- fic and dosed streets. The race track is on the east side of downtown, and Brothers suggests, "com- muters should enter down- town from the north, south or west to avoid any com- plications."

Opinion September 1999 Fall Recruitment Falls Flat for Most By Sean Palmer Assistant Editor oon, various firms ¡3 from around the ■■—'state will arrive at South Texas to decide who will be the lucky law students to have the privilege of be- ing an intern with them over the summer. The 2L's will be looking for a clerkship that will mean experience and not just a little "cha-ching" in the pocket for next year (many of the big Houston firms are offering $1,000-51,500 per week). The 3L's will be looking for offers of permanent employ- ment and the desperate hope that they will be able to make the payments on the huge loan debt that they've been racking up for the last three years. The CSO puts a large por- tion of its time and re- sources coordinating the Fall Recruitment Program every year. A glance at the criteria submitted by the participating law firms however indicates that for all the hard work put into this program, it seems to yield only a small return for the majority of studen...

September 1999 News Page 3 Big Changes in the Computer Labs By Susan Spillman Computer Instructional Services Librarian 3-1 f you have not been | hanging around the "-"'computer labs this summer, you will notice some big changes. We pur- chased 21 new Pentium computers to replace the old 486 models. This makes a total of 32 Pentiums in the glass-en- closed computer labs.

Each STCL student will receive 400 free pages of printing/semester in con- junction with their computer account. When printing from one of our computer labs, the software will inform you of the number of pages you are requesting, and will give you an opportunity to can- cel or to go ahead and send the request to the Print Server.

Page 4 News September 1999 HBA Allows Student Involvement By Stuart Vogt Staff Writer he Houston Bar As- sociation, the largest legal organization in Houston, encourages law student participation. According to Andrew Hanen, President of HBA, "The sooner law students get involved the better. We have several events each year that law students can get involved with to better acquaint themselves with the community."

September 1999 Features Page 5 Alternatives to Firm Work: Government Employment By Carrie Holman Staff Writer 11 here are numerous reasons for coming —Jto law school. These reasons range from, "I've wanted to be a lawyer since I was three," to "My par- ents forced me." However, most students fall some- where mid-range between these extremes, and are not really sure what to do with their law degrees. Many new lawyers, af- ter trying the traditional law firm route find it is not for them. Some STCL gradu- ates have discovered an al- ternative and found their niche in a government legal career. Miles Bradshaw, 1991 STCL graduate, worked for both large and small firms before pursuing his true calling as Assistant General Counsel with HISD. He as- sists the administration with legal issues that may arise in the context of employee grievances, teacher termina- tions, and student special education placements. "After working in a big firm and in the area of school law with a small firm, I w...

Page 2 Editorial October 1999 Farewell Old Girl - By Michael Thompson Asst. Business Editor X he date October 3, 1999 will forever stand in my mind as the end of an era in Houston sports and the beginning of the long and difficult task of saying goodbye to major profes- sional sports in the Astro- dome. How do you bid fare- well to the Eighth Wonder of the World? For 35 years the Dome reigned supreme over the Houston skyline hosting concerts, political conventions, any number of sporting events and, yes, the sport it was originally de- signed for—Houston Astros baseball. The Astrodome stood as not only a symbol of the city, but also a sym- bol of the state itself. Show any person who lives north of Huntsville ( aka, the "Yanks") a Roarshach ink- blot smear in the shape of an upside-down bowl, and you are sure to garner the same response—"Well, of course that is the Astro- dome, Doctor! Flashing back to my own first Dome experience, as a seven year old growing up in Jasper, Texas, I ...

Seventeen teams en- tered this fall's competition with Team #6 claiming vic- tory after five rounds of in- tense competition. Team #6 consisted of Matt Caligur, Stephen Coovert, Jennifer Grillo and Allyson Mihalick. However, Freeman adds "Because the tournament conflicted with fall recruit- ing there were a fewer num- ber of teams participating, but that did not take away from the success of the tour- nament." Paul Noak, Vice-Chair- man of the BOA, stated, "We would always like to see more teams, however, the tournament was a great suc- cess despite the low number of teams that did enter." The success of the tour- nament rested with a new organized a...
