Page 2 Editorial Summer2000 ft Global Nothing The dramatic impact that globalization is hav- ing on the practice of law is beyond debate. The end of the cold war, the pas- sage of NAFTA and G ATT/WTO, the ongoing unification of Europe, the opening of post-soviet markets and mostly, the development of cheap communication via the internet has shrunk the. world fast. Because of this, it is now recognized by nearly every pundit of jurisprudence that the attorney of the 21st Century will be a different animal than his forbearers. The new millennium attorney will be connected to the world as never before, and he or she will be struggling with legal issues that extend well beyond local jurisdictions; into the uncharted territories of extra-national law. The ABA has reacted to the rapid shrinking of the world by hosting a flurry of conferences that produced mandates that called for America's law schools to prepare students for a future where the practice of law will be dramati- cally differ...

Summer2000 Amicus Brief Page3 Law School & JI/lAtffi&ifi&ad, A Juggling Act Accomplished By Janice Pickett W hen the news came that I had been accepted into law school, I was thrilled. It was a dream that I had put on hold for a long time. Fifteen years ago, when I re- ceived my accounting degree, I chose to stay home and be a full-time Mom. Now Mom was going to law school and family life would never be the same. The lessons learned, friendships gained, rethinking of priorities and tears shed will stay with me forever. The most important thing is that our family survived. It is not the same relationship we had before; we are stronger and more supportive of each other. We learned to give and forgive, to adjust and to accommo- date each other. Hillary Rodham Clinton said it takes a village to raise a child. Well, I believe that it takes family and friends to put Mom through law school. I thought I understood the demands that law school would require. How wrong I was. For f...

Page4 Comment Summer 2000 Fans Say Enron Field a Hit By Stuart Vogt Staff Writer Snron Field opened March 30th just a few blocks away from the South Texas building and according to most students it was worth the wait. "It's great, not only is it close to school but the atmosphere is so much better than at the Dome," says Trace Johnson a 3L. The Astros played host for the first time against the current world champion New York Yan- kees to keep in line with the Astro tradition. When the Astrodome opened in 1965 the first game played was between the Astros and Yankees whose lineups offered many stars like Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford for the Yankees and Jimmy Wynn and now Manager Larry Dierker for the Astros. "It was great to see the Yankees come in and play here for the first time just like they did in the six- ties," adds Johnson. In 1965 Mickey Mantle belted the first home run in the Astro- dome and just like in that first game a Yankee hit the first homerun at Enron field, except ...

Page 6 News Summer2000 Associate Salary War Good News For Grads By Alexzandra Taylor Staff Writer In order to compete for associates, firms across the nation are start- ing to realize they can't be cheap. Ever since Silicon Val- ley firm Gunderson Dettmer, Stough, Villeneuve hiked their first-year starting salaries to a whopping $145,000, firms throughout the coun- try are starting to jump on the bandwagon in a com- petitive war to retain first year associates. Not all large law firms in Texas have bit the bul- let yet, but firms in Cali- fornia, New York, and Washington, D.C., are walking in Gunderson's footsteps. Despite the fact large Texas firms are moving at a snail's pace, the recent trend of increasing start- ing salaries is already af- fecting the Texas market. For instance, New York's Weil, Gotshal & Manges, which has offices in Houston and Dallas, and Los Angeles-based Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, with lawyers in Dallas, have raised their associate compensation.

Summer2000 News Page 7 STCL Board of Directors Raises Tuition Higher Costs Cited, Increase Frustrates Students By Sean Palmer Editor At it's April meeting, STCL's Board of Directors voted for a tuition increase of $24 per hour for the 2000- 2001 school year. As a re- sult, a student taking an aver- age 30 hours will pay $720 more than last year in tuition. South Texas' tution has decreased compared to the national average over the last few years. During the 1999- 2000 year, STCL tuition and mandatory fees were 22% lower that the national aver- age for private law schools. Despite increasing concern over record student debt bur- dens, tuitions continue to rise across the nations law schools. According to the U.S. Department of Educa- tion, the last ten years have seen the average law school tuition increase 59%, while in- flation has increased only 19%. According to Vice Presi- dent of Financial Administra- tion, Greg Brothers, costs have risen in higher education and unlike other in...

Summer 2000 News Page9 Diploma, from pg. 1 ploma options available at the election, and we're making adjustments to the one chosen to make it look more like the di- ploma pictured on STCL's 2000-2001 Admissions Bulletin (see rendering). The point is to make as many people happy as possible - that's what I'm trying to do." Assistant Dean and Registrar Lylene Pilkenton (whose office issues the diplomas) agreed there was confusion surround- ing the choices presented, and some of it may have been due to miscommuni- cation. "I never expected the students to think they were voting on a final di- ploma. What the mock- ups represented were gen- eral ideas that we would finalize later". Although STCL's di- plomas have been the same for at least the twenty-six years Dean Pilkenton has been at the law school, this is not the first attempt to change them. Pilkenton reports that the last at- tempt at changing the diploma was instigated by the Registrar herself. "Most students prob- ably don't kn...

Summer2000 Docket Call Page11 Editorial Continued from pg. 2 etc.? The argument that there is barely enough time to cover the core material let alone "extra" issues like international law , would only prove the point that the faculty are behind the times if they think international issues are superfluous to the modern practice of law. Despite the fact that South Texas strives to be more than just a regional class law school, many first year courses devote most of the class time to discussing Texas law exclusively. How can diversity of legal thought be promoted when students are indoctrinated in such a narrow frame of reference. Shouldn't equal time be given to the comparative or international per- spective of the given legal topic? The pedagogical benefits of seeing how other nations handle legal issues should alone justify a little bit of class time. For example, from a narrow local perspective, the concept of prop- erty is seductively simple. A mere ten minutes of lecture time dis...

Page 2 Op Ed & News ^ February 2000 Just Say No to Student Pro Bono! Editorial Many in the legal pro- fession consider law stu- dents a convenient scape- goat because we are on the lowest tier and we often don't speak up for our- selves. This sad truth is blatantly obvious in the current debate over whether to mandate pro bono hours as a condition for graduation. Recently, the Texas Su- preme Court has come un- der fire for not taking a more active role in making Texas lawyers meet their ethical obligations for pro bono work. Such recrimi- nations may be justified given the weak record of the Texas Bar's pro bono program. The solution ac- cording to some? Pass the buck. In making suggestions to the Texas Supreme Court on how best to address the issue, Justice Michol O'Connor of Houston's 1st Court of Appeals doesn't look to the practicing Bar memebership for a solu- tion. She would rather visit the "sins of the father" on the next generation of lawyers by instituting man- datory...

February 2000 Commentary Page 3 Fred Parks Law Library begins 18-month journey By Frank T. Reed Dean We are about to embark on the most exciting thing a dean can have happen on his watch: realization of a dream. The construction crews are on the grounds, hard hats are seen daily and the new site of the Fred Parks Law Library is being cleared. We've seen the beginning of an approxi- mately 18 month project to build the state-of-the-art library addition for South Texas College of Law. As a full-scale con- struction site tákes shape on the southeast corner of the South Texas block, the sidewalks and parking meters on the school side of Caroline and Clay streets will be blocked off. Initially it will be tough to see what the workers are up to on the other side of the wall, but our curiosity will be appeased by regu- lar updates posted around the school and on the library web page. By the middle of April, the steel structure which will support the new five- story library, should begin to...

February 2000 Feature Fair Trial vs. Page 7 "The GIST of it... " By Judge Larry Gist Funny thing about our Constitution. It guarantees such wonderful rights. It's basis for all of the freedoms we enjoy and so often take for granted. But what looks so simple on the surface is also a big problem when what appears to be equal rights bounce into each other. Then the enormous ques- tion tossed to the courts is which right should prevail. One of the most reoccur- ring conflicts is the battle between every citizen's right to a fair trial and the media's right to be free in the administration of that profession. Who wins of- ten depends on the minute details of that case. But there are some general prin- ciples that we should be aware of. < ? v 1 As with every right, there is a corresponding re- sponsibility. Our right to free speech, for instance, does not permit us to holler "fire" in a crowded theater. Our Constitution gives the courts, as the Third Branch of Government, the responsib...

Page 8 Hurricane from pg. 3 left dizzy but exhilarated from the first year of the hurricane. These law stu- dents faced the pressures and battering of the winds and debris as much as any. They may have even re- ceived disappointing grades, law review declines, or employment rejections. But somehow, they are left with a positive outiook and an eagerness for what lies ahead. Are these students masochists or merely punch-drunk from all the mental blows received in the first year? The answer lies in the art of attitude. The later group faired better psychologi- cally because they took things in stride in the first year. Essentially, in the face of the hurricane force gust, they bent in the wind and emerged stronger than be- fore. They worked to the best of their abilities and were happy with that, or at least acknowledged that they did not try their best, but were up to the challenge of doing better. .. first group held rig$ in the wind. Aftar the first initial blows, they clamped down ...
