Page 6 By Alex Nelson Staff Writer News January 2002 A TALE OF TWO LAWYERS JLn October, South Texas's Joe Green Audito- rium was the site for the hear- ing of the criminal trial of lo- cal investment banker Rich- ard Walker, who was charged with murdering his wife. The trial was held here because the Hams County Criminal Courts building is still under- going repairs from Allison's flood damage. The trial lasted a little more than a week, and many students watched during class breaks. Two of the attorneys in the case - one defense and one prosecution - were South Texas graduates. Defense counsel Dan Cogdell gradu- ated in 1982. Harris County Assistant District Attorney Casey O'Brien graduated in 1980. Both attorneys stated they enjoyed being back at their old alma mater and both had some special feelings to- wards the Joe M. Green courtroom Cogdell noted, "Be- ing in this room is kind of strange. I took the bar exam in here almost 20 years ago." O'Brien told a story about how he actu...

News Tanuarv 2002 FRED PARKS, ONE OF THE FEW By W.C. Bullard Staff Writer "Never in the field of hu- man conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." w inston Churchill spoke these words in the House of Commons as the Battle of Britain peaked on August 20, 1940. The "Few" he referred to were the Royal Air Force pi- lots, who were successfully de- fending England from the Ger- man aerial bombing onslaught, more commonly known as the 'Blitz*. The pilots to whom Churchill referred were men of a unique caliber and character. They were men who unhesitatingly gave of them- selves for the benefit of their nation and society. Fred Parks was a unique man of such cali- ber and character. Parks was a man who walked tall among his fellow man. BornJuly9,1906in Okla- homa City, in what was then Indian Territory, Fred Parks was a modest man from humble be- ginnings with a truly unique character. He was a man, reared in poverty, whose character would allow him to sleep in a graveyard as a ...

Special SUPER STUDY SPOTS FOR STUDENTS By Erin Murphy Staff Writer Ev, ery law student has an idea of the "perfect place to study." Many stu- dents find the law library at school to be sufficient. How- ever, the constant reminder of the level of competition in law school can become over- whelming, causing many stu- dents to find a study spot outside of school. Here are some of the class favorites: Starbucks Coffee Company: Numerous Houston Loca- tions: 12850 Memorial Drive Houston TX 713-461-3918 10001 Westheimer Road Suite 2530 Houston TX 713-532-7666 1655 S. Voss Road Houston TX 713-975-7667 7626 Westheimer Road Houston TX 713-952-9688 5801 Kirby Drive Houston TX 713-522-4898 For some, the time pre- ceding and during finals is purely caffeine-induced. What better place to fuel your brain than the world- renowned king of coffee, Starbucks? With locations on practically every corner in the Houston area, most law students are familiar with the coffeehouse atmo- sphere and large menu ...

Januaix2002_ Round-Up Page 11 Walker, from pg. 1 that Aneeka was having another affair." Less than a week later, Aneeka was dead. "There were gunshot wounds to both knees, one to the head and one to the hand, what we call a defensive wound," testified Houston Po- lice Lieutenant Nelson Zoch. The trial opened with defense attorneys, Dan Cogdell, class of '82 and Chip Lewis asserting that Walker shot his ex-wife Aneeka, while he was in a state of shock: hurt and upset about his ex-wife's infidelity, a condition the defense termed "Dissociative Disorder." The defense asserted that the discovery was particular shock- ing to Walker because he and Aneeka had reconciled and were planning to remarry. Prosecutors, Casey O'Brien, class of '80 and John Brewer painted a different picture. Un- der the prosecution's version of the truth Walker was something more than an innocent man crushed by his then ex-wife's sexual relationships. Instead, prosecutors portrayed Walker a spoiled, egotistical, c...

Dear PMBR; I lust received my July bar exam results and I am thrilled to report that I achieved a MuWstate score of 190 which apparently was the HIGHEST MBE score in Texas.

Page 2 Comment ANGEL AT STCL O ften, I have heard the saying that angels walk among us. Officer Paul Madison was such an angel, who at South Texas touched so many lives every day. Last month, Officer Paul Madison passed away from health complications. Like many students, this writer was shocked to hear about Madison's passing. It was only last semester that I met Officer Madison. Often, I would stay late to study at the library. Officer Madison was usually there to walk me out to my car. After a long night of studying, Officer Madison always cheered me up as we walked to my car. On those short walks, he reminded me that life is not always about law school. Also, he shared with me his love for being a police officer, During those walks, I came to realize that a deeply nice and caring person lived in Paul Madison. When Madison walked me to my car, he would wait to watch me start my engine. Then Madison would run down several flights of stairs to wave me on as I headed out of the garag...

Page 6 News February 2002 By Grace O. Egbufor Staff Writer A Ma ny students probably noticed bro- chures displayed along the corridors about study abroad. If you do not already have plans for the summer, it is the time of the year when you should start thinking about what to do for the summer. One choice is to pick up a brochure and find out more about STCL summer abroad programs. This year's programs may seem a little curious in light of the Sept. 11 th terrorist attacks and the ensuing war against terrorism. However, Assistant Dean Wanda Morrow assured that there is no cause for alarm. Her department is on the State Depart- ment alert list. This means that STCL is actively monitoring the State Department travel advisaries for the latest information. In the event of any advisory against Ameri- cans traveling to any of the regions hosting the program, the school will advise students accord- ingly. Dean Morrow states that Dean Read has traveled to Istanbul since the Sept. 11 attacks,...

February 2002 By S J Davidson, Staff Photographer and Official Calendar Girl Events Page 7 D ouglas Grimm and Matt Williams lead double lives. By day, they are mild- mannered first year law students, struggling through Property I and Constitutional Law cases, and stumbling through Socratic method recitation. But after class, when the two students put down their backpacks and books, they fire up two guitars and transform into up-and-coming rock and roll icons. Williams and Grimm met and became buddies on their first day at South Texas College of Law where they were assigned to the same section. They quickly determined they both had a strong interest in playing music and had both played in bands before law school. As their first semester wore on, the guys needed a stress relief and decided to get together and play some music. Over the Christmas break, they held their first jam session and "pounded out five songs in about ten minutes." The Douglas and Matt Band was born. Currently, the...

Last November, a memo in- formed students and faculty of a $10 million bequest by Parks to STCL. This bequest by Parks, in conjunction with two earlier endowments, will provide an investment base with the potential to yield immense, unfathomable returns in the future for both the law school and the students.

February 2002 Advice Dear Justine: Advice for Lawschool by Justine Learned Hand Dear Justine: Every time I get called on to re- cite in class, I get weak in the knees, break out in a sweat and get very ner- vous. How do I correct this? Signed, Sweaty Dear Sweaty, Try knee braces or thigh high leather boots and Arrid Extra Dry for start- ers. Then get used to it. Almost everyone gets nervous whenever they recite in class. If they say they don't, they are either fools or liars or both. Being prepared for class will help you get over those jitters. Read the black letter law for the material your professor will cover during class, read a canned brief, if you must, but always read over the case in the book because the canned briefs can trick you or be wrong with their facts and other things. Also the cases in the books will contain reasoning and facts that are not found in the briefs. Your pro- fessors are each experts in their fields and most have taught these classes before and can run...

Prior to entering South Texas, Proctor earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Howard Univer- sity and a Masters of Science degree in Library Sciences from The Catholic University of America. While attending night classes at South Texas, Proc- tor worked as the Director of Library Services at the Texas Southern University School of Law.
