February 2001 News Page 5 Promising 1L student dies By Allan Turner Houston Chronicle Auriela Juarez was the last of 12 children born to Jose R. Juarez and his wife, Maria. But in al- most every other aspect, she became the first. She was the first to graduate from college and enroll in law school. She expected to be the first of her family to be- come a judge, and ulti- mately, Texas' first His- panic governor. Those who watched her grow academically, socially and profession- ally found those ambi- tions plausible. But Juarez's dreams ended early Saturday (January 13) when her car struck a curb in the 6000 block of the Katy Freeway. The 23-year old South Texas law student died when she was thrown from the vehicle. "Everyone who knew her could see her poten- tial," said Tatcho Mindiola, a former UH professor of Juarez's. "When something like this happens, it just shakes you up. She was so young, so energetic, so full of life." Jauarez was born in Chicago, where her par- ents settled...

Page 6 News February2001 The BLUE & The WHITE:: Battle of the Style: Books By Carla Lujan Staff Writer Several South Texas legal research and writ- ing professors are using a new manual that competes with The Bluebook. The manual, written by the Association for Legal Writing Directors is nick-named "the white book" and called the ALWD manual. Assistant Dean of the Legal Research and Writing Department, Professor Ursula Weigold, is on the board of the Associa- tion for Legal Writing Directors. Weigold was skeptical when learning of the new ALWD manual. How- ever, after teaching 10 years and working on the Central Legal Staff for Civil Ap- peals, she liked this product. I* Professor of legal " research and writ- ing, Mark Steiner said, "There are some professors who are sticking with the Bluebook this semester. I'm not using ALWD be- cause I'm naturally conservative and wanted to make sure that the differences weren't too great. However, [ALWD] is a much easier book to learn from ...

February 2001 News Page 7 Technology Links Classrooms South Texas/A&M Joint Course Challenging But Exciting By Sean Palmer Editor-in-Chafe "Texas A&M, can you hear me!?" Twice a week, Professor Richard Graving shouts these words to an oversized projection screen directly over his head. As he does, another session of an experi- mental joint course offering between South Texas Col- lege of Law and Texas A&M begins. The course is the first in what is hoped to be an on- going series of classes that will allow law students from South Texas and graduate students at Texas A&M's George Bush School of Gov- ernment to take the same course and interact, even though separated by hun- dreds of miles. The joint course uses real- time streaming video over the Internet to link the class- rooms in Houston and in College Station. The first subject chosen for the experiment was Interna- tional Law because the sub- ject had both law and policy aspects appealing to law stu- dents and gra...

Page 11 Round-Up February2001 LIBRARY, from pg. 1 it's awesome up here. We also have a nice view." Moving away from the window, Rock stared at the newly installed carpet embedded with designs resembling either dancing bananas or flying boomer- angs. "Interesting carpet too," said Rock before re- turning to his treatise. Vice President & Di- rector of Library Services, David Cowan said, "I per- sonally think that there has not been too much disrup- tion ... I think that if there are going to be com- plaints, it's going to be between now and May, which is when we finish, because people will be in here studying and our con- tractor will have to be in here doing touch-ups." Erin O'Driscoll, 2L, has utilized the new library since the first day of the spring semester. "Sure, the new library was a little noisy from construction, but compared to all the noise from people talking on the first floor of the old library, the new library is much more conducive to studying." "We have really t...

Page 2 Comment March2001 Hush Money Last year in this column, to stress the importance of voting for the SBA president, we told you how much the position got for a scholarship. At the time, we got this informa- tion right from the horse's mouth: then SBA President Marvin Laws. After the column ran, we got a lot of good feedback from students on the "gosh I never knew that" meter. So we thought that this time we'd include all the scholarships for the leadership positions at STCL. Our assumption was that most students weren't aware that top positions on the advocacy organization, the student government, law journals, student newspaper and others receive sizable scholarships. If more students did know, then more would seek out these positions. We premised that some students may feel that they would like to get more involved but cannot because the have to work part-time to finance law school (see related story on page 8). Granted that some students may not be quite as civic minded as th...

March2001 Amicus Brief Page 3 "Spring Break? Maybe I'll Just", Boy, am I looking forward to spring break! I plan to kick back and do nothing for the whole week. I'm going to soak up some sunshine and let my brain have a rest. The most pro- ductive thing I plan to ac- complish is a trip (or two, or three) to the mall. I might even make it to the grocery store to stock up on some much-needed food - some- thing other than frozen din- ners - but that's still in the maybe category. Or perhaps I'll head to the beach. At least I'm close enough that I don't have to plan ahead and make reservations, I'll just get in the car and go. Spon- taneous and free - that's me, the whole week just to catch up on my life outside law school. I'll call my non-law school friends to make sure they're still alive. These are my true-blue friends, the ones who stick with me through thick and thin. The ones who told me I was in- sane because I wanted to go to law school. Looking back on their advice, they may h...

I obtained a B.S. in Banking and Finance from Florida State University, and gained two years experience at a bank in Tampa, Florida. I am currently running for Student Bar Association Treasurer. After one se- mester of meeting many new people and making some new friends, I decided to become more involved in something other than class-work. I believe being a hard worker and a person with high morals and integrity qualifies me for the job. I will be in the student lounge on campaign day to an- swer questions that you may want to ask. Finally, since we are in Texas I don't believe we will have any ballot prob- lems, however, after our experience in the recent Presidential election if needed will also be providing explanations of the following: "Thomas Folsom —> (o)" Thomas Folsom I would like to take this opportunity to campaign for SB A Treasurer.

Page 6 Voters Guide March 2001 OFFICE OF SENIOR SENATOR My name is Courtney Hoff, and I would like the opportunity to serve you, the stu- dents, as next year's Mid-Law Senator. Having participated in all of the events this year planned by SBA's Mid-Law Senators, I feel that I am qualified for this position. As the 1L representative for Section C, I was required to make announcements and encourage enthusiasm toward the events so I understand the art and importance of pub- licizing. It is my goal to not only have strong attendance at the events held, but to increase the bond among our students so that ev- eryone can feel as connected to the school as I do. I attended all of the SBA meetings this year so I am already familiar with the process and know what it entails to be a good board member and representative of the students. I have held many leadership positions throughout my life, and have planned events for groups of all sizes, but more importantly, I know how to work with people ...

Every person in the world has this uniqueness; and this uniqueness gives us our diversity.

Page 8 News March2001 New Bill May Help Law Students Afford Public Service Careers By Sean Palmer & Carla Lujan Recently, the University of Texas hosted a public ser- vice career fair. Inside the law school, students from around the state roamed the long halls of UT waiting for their turn to interview with government and non profit organizations. Each door along the long halls of Uni- versity of Texas School of Law had a single sheet of paper hanging from it. The paper listed the names of the law students who would be interviewing along with the name of their law school. A quick perusal of the list showed many students from UT, University of Houston, and other public schools. But few from private schools. In fact, in a career fair with hundreds of appli- cants, only a handful were South Texas students. Be- cause South Texas is one of the largest law schools in Texas, proportionately there should have been many STCL students at the public service fair. Where were South Texas Anno...

Page 11 Round-Up March2001 TASK FORCE, from pg. 1 community service pro- gram. There is disagree- ment on how to define "pro bono". In some schools, pro bono work in- cludes both legal work and public service work such as volunteer activi- ties Habitat for Humanity. Others consider "pro bono" only as legal work for the indigent. The destinction would be an important one if the school adopts a manda- tory program because it would limit the options students would have in fulfilling the required hours. Southern Methodist Uni- versity's program makes pro bono a mandatory re- quirement for the law de- gree. Many of the law programs across the na- tion with the requirement usually require 10 to 70 hours. Some members of the task force have said that if the new requirement is adopted, it will not be imposed retroactively to enrolled students. If South Texas adopts the prerequisite, it will only be imposed on entering students. "Everyone I have heard talking about this seems to be of the be...
