Page9 Feature Novmeber2000 Mind Your Manners! CSO Sponsored Professional Etiquette Program By SJ Davidson Staff Writer Picture this: You, at your prospective employer's dinner recep- tion. You, wine glass in one hand and a crab- stuffed mushroom with cheese sauce in the other. You, with cheese sauce on your fingers and wine drips on your white shirt when the hiring partner approaches you. Let's face it, we can all use a little polishing, especially now after years of college and law school's bad habits have eroded whatever social graces we may have left home with. Fortunately, help is available to bring you back to civilization. In October, twenty South Texas students par- ticipated in the two and a half hour Professional Etiquette program orga- nized by the Career Ser- vices Office and taught by Marjorie Perry, a South Texas 3L. Long before entering law school, Perry founded and is still the principal of Perry-winkle Productions, Inc., a com- pany focused on etiquette education for...

Page 11 Round-Up November2000 From AFFILIATION, pg. 4 use the joint name since that time. The Third Court of Appeals in Austin heard oral arguments in the ap- peal in November 1999. Since then, there has been no word as to when an opinion and order will be issued. STCL's Thorn would not speculate on what the delayed opinion means. "We thought there might be some new the week of November 1st because that makes it a year since the hearing, but no word." The lawschool checks each Thursday when the Court posts opinions on their website according to Thorn. He noted that al- though most opinions in that court are issued in less than a year, it's not unheard of for a case to go longer than that with- out an order being issued. Joint Activities Anyway Despite the legal prob- lems with the name, many of the collaborative plans called for by the original agreement have been car- ried out. Some examples are the linking of the two libraries, joint course of- ferings, and special pro- grams, inc...

í#fc€ í*t' Inside: STCL Pro i >j Volume XXXII, Number I Board of Advocates Wins Again..... p. 7 Going Wireless. .p. 8 NOTATION The Student Newspaper of South Texas College ofLaw ■ i Wi By Grace <X Egbufor Staff Writer It was an awesome sight as the 341 graduating men and women of South Texas College of Law strode into the George Brown Convention Center May 19, 2001. The atmosphere was that of pomp and pageantry as the red gowns worn by the members of the faculty and the board of trustees harmonized with the black robes of the 2001 gradua- ting students. This is the day all law students look forward to. As the graduates strode in, proud family members and friends cheered in delight for, at last, the prayers, hard work and sacrifice have paid off. In the words of Shanna Hennigan, one of the graduates, "The South Texas College of Law school exper- ience was challenging; the grad- uation ceremony was special." The guest speaker of the occasion was the soft-spoken and distinguished...

Page 2 Comment Summer 2001 GRATITUDE Over the past couple of weeks, members of the South Texas College of Law community, and for that matter, many others in our community, have been pushed to an awakening of how vulnerable we are against things beyond our control. The great flood that took 22 lives and which caused billions of dollars ur damages reminds us all too well how weak we really are, even when compared to something as harmless as water. Thankfully, no one from South Texas College of Law was among the fatalities of the floods Some students and staff members did receive flood damage, however, South Texas' facilities were unharmed by the water. Thank goodness the new library was also passed over by Allison, as it would have been terrible to lose all of the hard work that has been completed on our spectacular new library. On the subject of gratitude, we should all be thankful that unfortunate incidents such as Allison missed our school. There are, however, other incidents beyon...

mi m Summer 2001 Amicus Brief Page 3 By Erica Hakimi How many lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb?...Never -mind. Interesting isn't it?—these lawyer jokes just aren't quite as funny as they were before start- ing law school. There are many negative stereo- types about lawyers, but I guess the joke is really on everyone else, be- cause people still need and often pay top dollar for our services. As the school year winds down, I find it ex- tremely difficult to be- lieve that law school is finally coming to an end for the Class of2001. For those of us who have been here for a while, we have seen the school un- dergo many changes. We have watched the library built from the ground up—it is now state-of- the-art with quite a few private study rooms. Now we can sit in the li- brary and act like we're studying when we're re- ally chatting with our friends so that we don't bother the lLs who are actually trying to read. The more things change around here, the more tilings, remain ...

Page 4 1 Summer 2001 I H TEXAS OPEN FORUM Should STCL Have a Mandatory Pro Bono Requirement? - By Laura Forsythe Assistant Editor Preston Cunningham, 2L I think they should have the requirement. The only test, should there be one, is some- thing that benefits the community. However, I would like for the school's requirement to be very liberal and the students to decide for themselves what pro bono they think benefits the community. Also, I am reluctant to support the school if STCL pigeon holes stu- dents into doing certain types of pro bono work. Jim Rock, ?L I am against the man- datory pro bono re- quirement. I would be more inclined to agree with a voluntary one. I think that is already in place here through the clinics, but I don't think the clinics are doing a very good job of adver- tising themselves here on campus. If we had an expanded clinic role on campus, maybe more people would be able to use those programs to fulfill those needs. - f On a personal response, I think pro...

Vr YnMtvvi^v ■ Psgc 8 GOING WIRELESS Law Schools Are Becoming Technological Proving Grounds By Jason P. Sharp Staff Writer News Summer 2001 Imagine retrieving a map of the library, law school, or the entire campus at the touch of a button. Visualize arriving early to class and accessing WestLaw or Lexis wireless to find the case you failed to read the night before. Envision receiving an instantaneous e-mail telling you that cláss is canceled or checking the latest law clerk listings while standing in line for lunch. No more anxiety if you forgot your books—all of the materials needed for your classes are at your fingertips and available anytime. Does this seem far off in the distant future? Think again. The tools to build the "21st century law school" currently exist, and law schools are beginning to implement programs with the goal of placing law students at the forefront of technology and learning. For example, the first-year students at the University of South Dakota School of La...

Page 11 CRIMINAL HALL OF FAME - ill? «sff* i A - * " C vci $Pp By Honorable Larry Gist Adjunct Professor Everybody working in the criminal justice system has seen more than their share of offenders who appear dead set on getting caught. Their stupidity literally jumps out at you. But some are just naturally set apart. And you wonder how in the world somebody could be so incredibly dumb. Let's take a look at this year's winners from around the country. In Yankton, South Dakota, a woman was arrested at her son's Boy Scout meeting. At the meeting was an officer who was there to demonstrate his drug dog's ability. While awaiting few: the demonstration, the dog alerted on marijuana in her purse, and she was promptly hauled off to jail. A guy walked up to a con- venience store clerk in Colorado Springs, and armed with a shotgun demanded money from the cash drawer. After the cashier put the money in a bag, the robber saw a bottle of scotch on the shelf behind the counter. He told the clerk...

Page 2 Letters February2001 Coercion! COERCION! This is the word that immediately came to mind when I at- tempted to cash the finan- cial aid refund check that South Texas College of Law issued to me this se- mester. Please allow me to ex- plain. Students who re- ceive financial aid to at- tend the law school are owed any monies that are left over after South Texas College of Law deducts tuition, fees, and any other charges the student may owe. The law school issues a check to each student that is drawn on account with Chase Bank. Normally, when someone owes a person money, he or she expects to be paid that amount - no less and no more. However, I dis- covered that Chase Bank will not honor the legal demand instrument that South Texas issues a stu- dent without first sub- tracting a cut for them- selves. If a person does not have an account with Chase Bank, regardless of the fact that the check is drawn on that bank and there are available funds in the account, the bank will charge ...

Page4 News February 2001 Fall Forum Centers On December Graduation By SJ Davidson Staff Writer On November 9, the student lounge was the site of the STCL Fall Fo- rum 2000, an event seek- ing to bring student con- cerns and proposals to the school faculty and administration's attention. Billed as "the place to be heard", the event started with an update on open issues from the Spring Forum 2000, followed by six new student proposals. Registrar and Assistant Dean Pilkenton reported one step had been elimi- nated in the course regis- tration process. Students no longer have to sign off on a finalization form. That step is now included in the original registration forms. She relayed that her office was continuing to "look into electronic registration options" but had no definite program or plan at the time. Associate Dean Burnett reported there will not be a new, separate Domestic Violence Clinic as pro- posed at the Spring Forum. However, there will be an evening section of the clinic...
