She pointed out that by the following May, many December grads will have been working for six months, possibly in another city or state re- quiring travel back to Houston to participate in a ceremony with students they may not even know. "Getting a December ceremony is a high prior- ity for me", said the President-elect. SBA School Store: Erica said that she got her idea for an SBA book store from her experience with the American Bar Association. Her plan would be for an SBA store to facilitate match- ing students in an easy way to buy and sell their used books - a plan she feels will benefit everybody. "Students would leave their books on consignment, set- ting their own price, and would get paid when they sell. The SBA officers could run the store during ...

Page 2 Editorial September 2000 The Thick of Thin Things Steven Covey, author of First Things First, and American guru of time management has a saying : "Don't get caught up in the thick of thin things". All of us (this newspaper included), fall from time to time into the trap of focusing on the 'urgent but irrelevant' when we should pay attention things that are truely important. The SBA is charged with overseeing student organizations and with promoting social and chari- table events. Our SBA has excelled in this duty as evidenced by its recent national recognition. But according to the student handbook, it also has a much more weighty charge: to act as an advocate for the students. This duty has largely been ig- nored in the past years. Perhaps in the past it was because the representatives lacked the leadership courage to challenge the administration when the administration makes decisions that were not in the students best interest. Or perhaps it was because of simple apathy on...

September 2000 Amicus Brief Page 3 SBA President Outlines Plans for Semester Erica Hakimi Hello! I hope the summer went well for every- one. This summer I had the pleasure of representing South Texas at the American Bar Association Annual Meeting which was held in New York City. Our Student Bar Association was honored with winning the SBA of the Year award for the West Region. This marks the fifth year in a row that we have received this award. Congratula- tions and thank you to all the students for your con- tinued efforts in making us a nationally recognized SBA. As you get settled into this semester, I want you all to remember a few things about the Student Bar Association. Each student that is enrolled in school here is automati- cally a member of the SBA. Whether this is your last semester here at South Texas or your first, the SBA has a lot to offer you. First, I encourage you to become familiar with all the SBA officers. We are all here to make the SBA run smoothly and would ...

Page 4 News September 2000 Judge in Criner Hearing Defends Justice System Roy Wayne Criner was released on August 15,2000 after spending 10 years in jail for a murder he didn't commit. After two failed ap- peals, conclusive new DNA evidence persuaded 410th District Court Judge K. Michael Mayes to join Dis- trict Attorney Michael A. McDougal and Sheriff Guy Williams in signing a formal recommendation asking the parole board to recommend that Criner be pardoned by Governor Bush. The highly publicized case has created a flurry of criticisms about a broken criminal justice sys- tem. Many South Texas stu- dents will be entering the field of criminal law as prosecutors or defenders. Some say they are entering into a 'broken' criminal jus- tice system. ANNOTA- TIONS is here printing for the first time in any publica- tion, the full text of Justice Mayes statement in which he defends the outcome of the Criner case, and the Texas Criminal Justice System...

September 2000 News PageS SYSTEM, from pg.4 long to exonerate Roy Criner, this Court says you are in error. Because it is this system, this living, breathing, listening, and "Justice, while elusive... does exist as a reality in the American Criminal Justice System." alive Justice system, that does now move this Court to recommend a full and complete pardon for this man. It is Justice in its tru- est, absolute form that has al- lowed your pleas to be heard, and now allows this Court to render such a rec- ommendation. And so, the legacy of the case known as State of Texas v. Rov Criner is this: Justice, while elusive and often too deliberate, none- theless does exist as a real- ity in the American Crimi- nal Justice System. The pain and anger that we often feel by the impatience we all ex- perience from our system of Justice are far outweighed by the ultimate satisfaction that we all embrace when truth is ultimately estab- lished by the very same sys- tem. I have this date signed a re...

September2000 News Page 7 ! U.S. News Gives South Texas Low Grades By Sean Palmer Editor-in-Chief The 2001 edition of U.S. News and World Report's annual issue on law school rankings hit the stands this month. According to the widely read publication, South Texas College of Law ranks among the least pres- tigious law schools in the country. U.S. News ranks law schools into "tiers" with the first tier including schools such as Harvard, Yale and University of Texas. South Texas is listed in the bottom or "fourth tier". Among the 36 fourth tier schools, U.S. News does not assign a nu- merical rank. However, the national ranking can be ex- trapolated from the numbers they do give. A careful re- view shows that U.S. News has bad news for current and prospective students at South Texas. Reputation by academics: STCL ranks second to last in reputation score by aca- demics in Texas. On a scale of 0-5, South Texas received a rating of 1.8. Texas Southern and Texas Wesleyan were tied for last...

Page 9 News September2000 PARKINGfrompg. 1 ever, many students ques- tioned the methodology of these figures. Jaime Rocha, 2L, com- mented, "What was up with that parking survey? It didn't take into account the three weeks of prob- lems caused by the Grand Prix race. Also, many of the metered parking spaces around the school are not extended stay - only two hours, and some of those are only for one hour. There is no way those spaces can be used to park for a Tuesday/ Thursday class." Rocha continued, "Another thing the survey missed was the fact that some spaces, in- cluding the entire row on Polk across from the new entrance are unusable from seven to nine in the morning and from four to six in the afternoon for rush hour." The impartially of the survey was also ques- tioned. In the Spring Fo- rum, a student proposal was made to look into the feasability of building a parking garage. Although the survey was supposed to clinicaly tabluate the parking availability in the area, the co...

I was a gymnast for the ma- jority of my life. I am a good skier and not such a good bowler, but I do love the athletic competition. If it was about athleticism, the athleticism I have! So, why am I not qualified to play on the intramural flag-football team this fall? It is merely because I am a woman at South Texas College of Law. The magnitude of that last statement should touch the heartstrings of every female hear at STCL. I am not allowed to play SB A sponsored in- tramural flag-football be- cause I am a woman. From this one small de- bate, I have now been wit- ness to many deplorable personality traits that I had no idea my "close" friends harbored.
