Februaiy200fr Docket Call P*ge 9 See the World this summer...Study abroad By Wanda Morrow Assistant Dean Want to escape the Houston heat this summer but need to earn course credits toward your J.D.? How about earning those credits while studying in Europe or India? South Texas College of Law co-sponsors a variety of summer study abroad programs, as well as a full semester cooperative exchange program, that offer students the opportu- nity to immerse themselves in the study of international and comparative law. Each of these programs has been approved by the American Bar Association for credit toward the J.D. degree.

Page 10 Docket Call February 2000 Habitat for Humanity: Take a break from your books and Build a House for Habitat! By Jenni Hodges Habitat for Hu- manity is a worldwide ef- fort to eliminate poverty housing through both the construction of simple, modest homes and raising public awareness of the need for decent shelter. The houses are built us- ing primarily volunteer la- bor and donated materials. They sell the homes to low income families at cost, with no interest. Since its beginning in 1976, Habitat for Human- ity has built over 600,000 homes in the United States and around the world. South Texas Col- lege of Law is participating in Habitat for Humanity on February 19, 2000. Be- cause this is a school-wide project, all students, fac- ulty, administration, staff and their families are en- couraged to participate. Each participant will volunteer for either a four-hour shift (morning or afternoon) or an eight- hour shift (all day). Work at the sites begins at 8:00am and ends aroun...

Page 2 Editorial March 2000 SBA Elections DO Matter Think that the SBA elections don't matter? Think that it is just a nice little club, like student government in high school? Consider this: The Student Bar Association President receives $10,000 a year from the fees that you are pay- ing, and in fact all the SBA reps receive a small scholarship. This is money well spent if the candidates keep their promises and do their jobs. But if there is one thing that we all have in common is that we are all laboring under the heavy costs of going to this law school. Besides tuition, books and the costs of living, you will shell out at least $1,800 in general service fees before you are done. If such a large portion of that money goes to one person who is supposed to be serving you and representing your interests, wouldn't you want to make sure that person was giving you your money's worth? Somehow this fact has never been stressed during elections. In fact, ew students even know that the SBA ...

March 2000 Amicus Brief Pro Bono Balancing Act By Elaine Urmy Guest Commentary For most of the past twenty years, I have worked as a paralegal. During this time, I have been fortunate to work for three outstanding attor- neys: David Gibson, Norma Trusch, and Joan Jenkins. All three of these people are successful, Board Certified attorneys. All three of these people have made a personal commitment to pro bono, contributing hundreds, if not thousands, of hours to aiding the indigent. Ms. Trusch has been honored by the State Bar of Texas for her pro bono contributions (Texas Bar Journal, 1998), and in 1998 the law firm of Short and Jenkins received the Houston Bar Foundation's award for Outstanding Small Firm Contribution to the Houston Bar Associa- tion Houston Volunteer Lawyer's Program. These people are not pro bono lightweights. So, in preparation for this ar- ticle, I spoke with Ms. Trusch and Ms. Jenkins - I could not speak with Mr. Gibson, as he died in 1991 - to feel them out a...

I've had the pleasure of serving the student body for the past 2 years as 1L Section Representative and as Mid-Law Senator this past year.

I am running for SB A-VP to become more involved with STCL as well as the community, and I am well-quali- fied for the office based upon my good organi- zational skills, my friendly personality, and my "ability to get things done."

I have a good deal of experience with student govern- ment. At Oklahoma City University, where I received my Bachelor's de- gree in Religion, I was President and Vice-Presi- dent of the Stu- dent Senate. 1 have also been involved in many other programs which have al- lowed me to be a liaison between administration and students. The past three summers I have been the direc- tor of a leadership program at Camp Olympia, an athletic camp in East Texas. The program involves teach- ing 16 year olds the fundamentals of what it means to lead others. The program has also allowed me to strengthen my own leadership skills. Skills such as patience, flexibility and delegation are just a few. I am a very open person and love to hear input from others. I think it is important to give and receive feed- back. I am goal driven, decisive and optimisti...

The students competed against teams from 35 other law schools from across the nation at the National Con- stitutional Law Moot Court Competition at William and Mary School of Law Circuit, and the Virginia Supreme Court.

Say "Hallo" when you see them around. So how do they like it here? Overwhelmingly, thie FES' favorite thing about America is the people.

Page 2 Editorial April 2000 The "Ears" Have It... The administration of South Texas College of Law has gone out of its way to listen to the concerns of the students and needs to be applauded for its efforts. The Spring Forum is only the most recent and conspicuous example of the administration's generally receptive attitude towards student feedback, negative or otherwise. The Leadership Luncheon is another structured fo- rum in which Dean Read's administration makes active efforts to exchange concerns and ideas with students. The open door policy of most (but not yet all) departments and the general receptivity of department heads to meet students individually are other examples. The very autonomy of student organizations such as the Student Bar Association and ANNOTATIONS and their ability to communicate without administrative censorship is still an- other tangible example of the administration's commitment to hearing stu- dents out. It is easy to forget, especially among those of ...

April 2000 Amicus Brief Page 3 Marvin's Closing Argument Getting Hammered by Marvin Laws I wonder if today is going to be any different than yesterday? Yesterday was good and bad. I was prepared for all of my classes. At least most of the professors thought so. The one who didn't, really put the screws to me. But I read that case at least three times. I don't know, sometimes it just doesn't make sense. For example, why can I lose points for having a bad day without getting an opportunity to make it up? Is that what the practice of law is like? Don't ask me, I am not a lawyer — yet. Of course, this does not mean I never look down upon the benefits of a good hammering. Getting hammered forges character, quick thinking and a thick skin. I have seen lawyers who could have used one or all of these traits at one time or an- other. Yesterday afternoon was produc- tive. I finally finished that project my boss had been anticipating for a few weeks. Work makes me glad I got the experience res...
