Page 2 Comment WELCOME BACK!!! Welcome back everyone to another great semester here at South Texas College of Law. We would especially like to welcome all of the lL's and new faces as they begin their legal careers. This issue of Annotations is geared mostly to- wards first year students and their questions. The best advice we can give is to remember that everyone feels how you do and just take it one day at a time. We are lucky to be the student body that can enjoy the first full school year of our new Fred Parks Law Library. The architecture, layout, furniture, and colors are spectacular. The Sixth Floor Terrace has one of the best views in all of down- town Houston. What a great place to go and take five! Student organizations can reserve the facilities for meetings and fund-raisers. In fact, there are plans for a Texaco Grand Prix viewing party atop the terrace. The terrace will no doubt offer one of the best views to watch the exciting race!

Page 4 September 2001 Social Your "Main" Destination The Pubs and Clubs of Main Street in Downtown By Erin Murphy Staff Writer Complaints of change and construction in downtown aside, the center of Houston's levitalization has brought with it a number of positive trans- formations. Even overlook- ing trendy new living spaces, a vast assortment of eating es- tablishments, and Enron Field, perhaps the most im- portant change is occurring at night, making downtown the place to be for everyone. From the black-clad partygoer to the jeans-wearing beer- lover, downtown is rapidly becoming a place for all to mix and mingle, and for all of these trends, Main Street is pulling them all together. DEANS: 316 Main Street For club-goers wanting a change from ordinary, non- distinctive bars around town, Dean's is the place to be. Be- ginning originally as a cloth- ing store in the early 1900's, it claims tide as the only bar/ clothing store worldwide where a martini and a vintage dress can be purc...

Seotember 2001 Special Page 5 ABA TO TSU: BUCKLE UP!! By Grace O. Egbufor Staff Writer Recently, and as part of its seven- year accreditation review, the Ameri- can Bar Association asked the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University to buckle up on its current bar passage rate. This will require the school to raise admission standards for incom- ing law students. According to a re- port by the Texas Lawyer (July 30th, tablished in 1946 to provide mi- norities, especially African-Ameri- cans, with opportunities for legal education. Today, it caters to stu- dents who could not be admitted into most law schools because of their LSAT scores and their under- graduate grade point average. Ac- cording to the Texas Lawyer report, Brittain acknowledged a correla- tion between the LSAT scores, un- dergraduate grade point average, and the likelihood to succeed in the bar. Furthermore, the school has " The education we re- ceive is not less in value to that of other law schoo...

Page 6 News September 2001 THE MALTA EXPERIENCE By Laura Forsythe Assistant Editor Many people in the United States have never heard of Malta. However, around 40 STCL students, who partici- pated in the summer-abroad program, lived in Malta for five weeks. Only 17 miles long, Malta is an English-speaking island in the Mediterranean Sea be- tween southern Sicily and the coast Tünisia. For a small island, Malta offered stu- dents an incredible nightlife, beautiful coastlines, un- matched diving, and a chance to study international law. Many of the law students participating had just fin- ished their first year, so Malta offered them a much-needed break. How- ever, the sun-baked stu- dents did not get that much of a break. Many students found classes like Euro- pean Union Law and Inter- national Criminal Law re- quired a lot of study time. According to Erin Muiphy, 2L, the classes were on par with classes taught in a South Texas classroom. "European Union Law was one of the more diffi-...

September 2001 News Page 7 ONE L WITH A TWIST By Natherral J. Washington Staff Writer By now, most people familiar with this publi- cation have heard of Scott Turow's best-seller, OneL. First published in 1977, One L is still very timely and poignant read- ing for anyone contem- plating or engaged in the prolonged academic haz- ing that is law school. But few, if any, books and ar- ticles address the topic from the perspective of a first year student who at- tends classes at night. Most night-time stu- dents find fatigue is the toughest thing about law school. As Van Williamson, a network engineer, husband, and father stated, "you bring the whole day with you." Unlike full-time day stu- dents, most night stu- dents have worked entire the day before their first class begins. After three or four hours in class and the drive home, which for many students means a trek to exotic locales like Conroe, Huntsville, and Beaumont, it's time to prepare for the next day of kids, work, and school...

September 2001 Round-Up Page 11 THE CHANGING FACE OF MOCK TRIAL: A BRIEF OVEVIEW By J.D. Schacht Board of Advocates The beginning of the fall semester here at South Texas College of Law al- ways brings new changes and many new faces. This semester is no different. Students can now enjoy the Fred Parks Law Library, and hundreds of new stu- dents have entered our midst to pursue their dreams of practicing law. The advocacy program is changing as well, specifi- cally in continuing South Texas' winning tradition in Mock Trial. This fall we welcome the beginning of Mock Trial Litigation. For all of you second and third year stu- dents, Advanced Civil Liti- gation has changed its name. But more important than the name is the focus and goals of Mock Trial Litigation. The focus of the Mock Trial Litigation classes is twofold. First, the classes offer students the opportu- nity to learn the ins and outs of trying cases. Second, the classes offer the mock trial coaches the opportunity of eval...

Page 2 Comment Grand Prix 2001 WAR t ■ . 7 . ~ #* - For the rest of our lives, September 11, 2001 will always be a day of remembrance. As past generations can recall where they were when Kennedy was shot, all of us will remember exactly where we were when we first heard about the plane crashes in New York and Washington D.C. Nineteen terror- ists have forever changed the way we will live our lives. Changes in the time and procedures to board airplanes have already changed. Congress is ex- pected to pass new anti-terrorism laws which would give the Government greater power for wiretaps and seizing laundered money. Things have changed here at STCL as well. The side entrance facing Polk Street is now closed, the only way in or out of school is the front door. One member of our student body, Johnnie Almon, has been activated from the Air Force Reserves to help with the war effort. He left STCL on September 28th. Our thoughts and prayers are with all South Texas students, faculty, and st...

Page 4 Social Grand Prix 2001 Three Cheers for Houston Sports Bars By Erin Murphy Staff Writer Fall is synony- mous with the combination of two of America's great- est pastimes-football and baseball. As the first kick- offs take place and the homerun streaks come to an end, fall is the sports lover's season. While the best views are often up close and personal, if not cheering on the field or in the stadium, the next best place to catch the big game is the local sports bar. With the Astros' lead in the National League Cen- tral, the new Houston Tex- ans NFL franchise, the up- coming Super Bowl and All-Star Game in 2002, and the possibility of a 2012 Summer Olympics on the horizon, Houston's sports bars are fast becom- ing the hottest ticket for the sport's fanatic wanting to witness sporting history. bw-3 Grill and Pub 2525 Rice Boulevard Rice Village's charter of the Ohio-based chain, features a winning combination of pub atmo- sphere, traditional bar food, and sports viewing.

Grand Prix 2001 Special Pag? 5 By Grace O. Egbufor Staff Writer A THE DANISH TEAM It was a Thursday af- ternoon and we were all done with classes for the day. So, we all sat on the second floor corridor discussing their stay in America for the past sev- eral weeks. Henrik Damsgaard the only male amongst the five team Dan- ish exchange students here at South Texas College of Law, assumes the guardian's atti- tude while the girls Laila Beck, Marianne Skodborggard, Lone Marcussen, and Anne Qvortrup and this writer did most of the talking. Observ- ing the dynamics of the "Team", one gets the impres- sion that the five knew each other back home in Denmark before commencing on this trip, but when asked if they were friends before now, the response was a unanimous no. They only met perhaps a couple of times before com- ing to America. The "Danish Team" is here on an exchange pro- gram between AARHUS UNIVERSITY and STCL.

Grand Prix 2001 News Page 7 ALLISON TEACHES STUDENTS BASIC LIFE LESSON By Natherral Washing- ton Staff Writer More than $25 mil- lion in damage, approxi- mately 250,000 lost books and roughly 1,000 stu- dents displaced. You guessed it, Tropical Storm Allison! In addition to the thousands of homes, cars and businesses damaged by flooding this June, the University of Houston and the Texas Southern Uni- versity law schools each suffered significant dam- age. For U of H, Allison's torrential down- pour cost the Law Center the bottom floor of its two- level underground library. For Texas Southern's Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Allison's floodwa- ters cost the students their entire law school, as stand- ing water spawn dangerous mold. So what's a student to do? "I just basically come and find a room to study," says Ghavrie Walker, 2L, Law Review candidate at Thurgood Marshall.
