Grand Prix 2001 High Above Houston, Mentees Meet Their Mentors By Laura Forsythe Assistant Editor On Sept. 20th, the Student Bar Association hosted the student's first ter- race party on the 6th floor of the Fred Parks Library. High above the ground, mentors and mentees introduced themselves as they met for the first time. For many students, it was their first time to see the 6th Floor Terrace. Accord- ing to Brian Fears, 2L, "this terrace really changes the whole atmosphere to the SBA parties." One student, who smokes, commented that it allowed them to socialize and still feel comfortable smoking. Also, the function gave a chance for 1L mentees to meet their upperclassmen men- tors. Erim Jivani, 2L mentor, met her two mentees Lonnie Burgett and Katherine Bitsoff. During their conversation, the group realized they had the same professors. Jivani stated she wanted to help them with outlines and give them advice. "She told us what to do and what not to do," said Burgett. While some fo...

Page 2 Comment November Iftftl FRED PARKS O n November 14th, South Texas College of Law will honor a great man and South Texas graduate, Fred Parks. Sadly for South Texas, Parks will not attend this cel- ebration, for he recently passed away at the age of ninety-five. Even while he was in his last decade of life, Parks accomplished more than many of us can ever hope to achieve in our entire lifetimes. He is a man to be admired and revered. As students of life, as well as the law, we should learn from his example. Parks was born in Oklahoma in 1906 and reared by his mother after his father abandoned the family. With little means to support the family, Mrs. Parks worked at any job she was able to find. Her hard work and determination apparently made a lasting impres- sion on her young son, for he never retreated from hard work. After his mother remarried, Parks spent any time not in school working on his stepfather's farm in South Dakota. He also worked odd jobs around town. Following...

November 2001 Events Page 3 By Laura Forsythe Assistant Editor SBA SELLING SHIRTS TO HELP THE RELIEF EFFORT The Student Bar Association is selling T-shirts to raise money. The white T-shirt has an American flag across it and reads, "South Texas College of Law Remem- bers." The T-shirts are available in the Student Affairs Office on the second floor. Students can pur- chase one shirt for $10 or 2 shirts for $15. So far, around 400 shirts have been sold. The SBA, working with other organizations, intends to sell 1,000 shirts. The profits will go to the relief effort toward the recent terrorist attacks on America. Amy Kavalewitz and Jonathan Anderson came up with the idea to sell the shirts to raise money. According to David Swick, SBA President, this fund-raising effort was not only to raise money but to make a statement that South Texas cares. SBA President David Swick models the T-shirts benefiting the Sept. 11th victims. Photo by SJ Davidson "It isn't the money that is important, b...

Page 4 NEWS November 2001 BOARD OF ADVOCATES South Texas vs. South Texas The Advocates begin the season with a sweep! From the Desk of Associate Dean and Professor T. Gerald Treece X he President has called upon Ameri- cans to return to "nor- malcy". The Astros did their part as they com- pleted their customary October collapse, and the South Texas Advo- cates got back to busi- ness by sweeping every award at the 4th Annual State Bar of Texas Administrative & Public Law Moot Court Com- petition held in Austin at the Third Court of Appeals. Each law school, with the exception of TSU and St. Mary's, participated in the 3-day tournament. In fact, this tournament allows multiple entries from the state's law schools. UT, Tech, Baylor, Houston, and Wesleyan each had 2 teams while SMU had one. Our team of Wendy Yates, Wade Vandiver, and Delia Reyna went undefeated through their five rounds and received the travel- ing championship trophy. Moreover, the team brief authored by Wendy Yate...

November 2001 Special Page 5 For Whom the "Bell" Tolls By W.C. Bullard Staff Writer -L he mystery continues! Residing on an appropriate pedestal in the STCL foyer, the Bell sits silent and impressive in a position of prominence most of the year. Most people hurry by it, without a thought or a glance, on the way to the bookstore or the elevators as they strive to get to class on time. Then come the moments when everyone draws near to reach out and touch the Bell in what, at South Texas College of Law, has become a rite of passage. It is a traditional event, Ringing the Bell. Each semester, after the graduating 3L's have taken their last final, they will ring the Bell. This usually takes place in the presence of friends, Jim Rock, ?L looks for cracks in the bell. fellow students and family members.

Page 6 Politics November 2001 STCL SPEAK-OUT By Grace O. Egbufor Staff Writer David Swick (SBA President): "The debate was great. The student's impression of Joe Green Hall is that it is dark and cold but during the debate, it was bright. The debate brought to light issues important to students. I wish students could have asked some questions." Heather Bradford: "The debate was more interesting than I thought it was going tobe. Chris Bell made his point without being tacky, while Sanchez and Brown had an attitude. I have now made up my mind to vote because of the debate, I wasn't going to vote before now." Debate, from pg. 1 waited until the recent death of a fire fighter to offer a plan that puts four firefighters per truck, waved his vast Smith: "Great experience. It was a good opportunity for students to become aware of the platforms of the candidates. I would have liked to see more students there and more clear answers to the questions."

November 2001 News Page 7 Waiting Patiently... Over three years and two courts later; A&M and South Texas still wait By Laura Forsythe Assistant Editor If good things come to those who wait, South Texas is overdue. Since 1998, South Texas and Texas A&M wait to see if they can find relief through the Texas courts to complete the affiliation. Currently, South Texas is appealing a 3rd Court of Appeals decision to the Texas Supreme Court. In the decision, the Court of Appeals ruled that Texas A& M exceeded its legal authority in signing a contract to affiliate with South Texas. The Texas Supreme Court will decide sometime before December on whether or not they will hear oral arguments and review the case. The lead counsel for STCL is Doug Alexander from Austin. Yet a number of lawyers are assisting in the action, including some faculty members of the law school. hiD shot —— The pleadings that have been filed in the STCL - Texas A&M affiliation case.

Page 8 News Nnvemher 2001 New Wave, from pg. 3 right away. If the appli- cant has two years experience in appellate brief writing, chances are the firm will not hire that applicant for the position of an insurance defense attorney. How- ever, all of this depends on the type of organiza- tion doing the hiring. A big law firm, regardless of the law school and one's experience, will train the new associate. So that is why it is important to position and "distinguish your- self' by deciding earlier in your law school career what type of law you want to practice, and in what situations, so that you can zero into that area. Neal suggested that law students participate in extracurricular activities in their field of interest and, if possible, do some work in that area before graduating. Bell, from pg. 5 STCL students are not missing much. Dean Read compared this school to Georgetown Univer- sity Law School and New York University Law School because these schools are big urban schools locat...

The Fall semester was an exciting time to be a student at South Texas and another challenging semester begins again for those who just finished their first one. We would also like to welcome all of the new students to South Texas this semester as you begin your legal training. For those who did not attend the Library Dedication, you missed a great time. The long, hard work of the Development Office, staff, students, and the Technology Department came to an end as the party went on well into the evening. Succulent food, soothing music, and a great speech by former President George Bush made the day one to remember. The food was placed in the student lounge and the second and sixth floors of the library with each station offering different items. The varied menu included everything from shrimp cocktail, fried chicken fingers, to fresh fruit and many, many different desserts for all types of different palates. Ummm! For ...
