By SJ Davidson Scott Hall, 2L "Best Thing: They gave me an oppor- tunity to go to school here and fulfill a goal of becoming a lawyer. Worst Thing: All of the interesting student fo- rums and guest speaker events are during the day when I work which, prevents me from at- tending. There should be more consideration given to night students in planning the various school-sponsored events." Connie Slocomb, 3L "Best Thing: I'm about to Thing: I'm about to graduate."

Page 4 Special March 2002 2QQ 2 Voter's Guide OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT For those of you who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Courtney Hoff, and I would like the oppor- tunity to serve you, the students, as next year's SB A President. From the moment I got here, I knew that I had found my home. I was greeted by people who helped point me in the right direction, and for that, I am eternally grateful because that was the driv- ing force that led me here today. My goal was to create an environment for each of you that was comfortable and enjoyable to help make this intense journey we are all on a little easier. I know as well as you do Courtney Hoff that law school is probably one of the most challenging experiences of our lives, espe- cially when dealing with all of our additional outside stressors. It is for this reason that I have continuously taken on posi- tions like 1L rep and Mid-Law Senator where I could not only plan events that brought smiles to your faces, bu...

Page 6 Voters Guide March 2002 OFFICE OF MID-LAW SENATOR (cont) My name is Marit Babin and I would like your vote for Mid-law Senator. Past experience planning events, current service as an SB A 1L rep- resentative and an outgoing personality will allow me to serve you well. Being the eldest of five children, I come naturally to the position of social chairman. 1 also held leadership positions and planned a variety of social functions throughout my college career. Recent work experience plan- ning and supervising events of every shape and size provided ample opportunities for enhancing my repertoire of party ideas. I look forward to the challenge of presenting my fellow law students with an interesting and varied schedule of events. As a current SBA1L representative for section A, I have informed my fellow classmates about SBA activi- ties, important dates and functions and encouraged them to participate.

March 2002 Voters Guide Page 7 OFFICE OF TEXAS BAR ASSOCIATION REPRESENTATIVE Ken Riney My name is Ken Riney and I am running for the position of South Texas College of Law's represen- tative to the Texas Bar Associa- tion (TBA). Though only a 1L, experience is perhaps my most outstanding qualification for this position. This past fall, STCL's current representative to the Texas Bar Association created a new committee with several po- sitions that greatly enhanced the State Bar of Texas, Law Student Division program here at South Texas. One of these positions was that of Junior Representative, of which I was chosen to serve. My duties included assisting other com- mittee members in the execution of their respective programs such as membership, philanthropy and social. In addition, I assisted the cur- rent TBA representative in different aspects, while learning the de- tails of what their position truly entailed. Of the nine law schools in Texas, South Texas has one of the strongest ...

Page 8 Special March 2002 By W.C. Bullard Staff Writer WHAT STCL STUDENTS CAN DO FOR THEIR COMMUNITY "A* not what your coun- try can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." With these words, John F. Kennedy in his presidential inaugural ad- dress set forth a challenge to America that continues to this day. In an effort to instill in STCL students an awareness of the value of volunteer activities, the Law Institute for Medical Stud- ies (LIMS) at STCL compiled a list of volunteer organizations for STCL students and student as- sociations. This effort by LIMS started with a focus toward medical-service institutions, but has been expanded to include lay organizations. LIMS maintains a data binder of background information on each of the agencies and organi- zations with which interested stu- dents can work in a volunteer capacity. The background in- formation for each agency or organization includes not only contact information, but also basic information relating to the typ...

March 2002 GEM, from pg. 1 sis. At any given moment roughly a dozen South Texas stu- dents serve as clerks or interns for the combined courts. As Jason Sharp, 3L, ex- plained, the application process is rather simple. "1 called Justice Taft with the First Court of Ap- peals, who is the head of the in- terns and submitted to him a package which consisted of my resume, transcript, writing sample and a cover letter," said Sharp. Also, Sharp explained that the courts like interns to work 16 hours each week. "You can ba- sically knock out all of your hours in three days," added Sharp. In addition to the substantial boost an internship at a Court of Appeals adds to a student's re- sume, Sharp explained that the practical experience is even more beneficial. "I research issues and write pre-submission memorandams, which is kind of like a memo, but in the form of an opinion, and the judges, staff attorneys and briefing attorneys will look that over," said Sharp. "If they have no problems wit...

Brown convention center to congratulate and ad- mire the South Texas Col- lege of Law class of 2002. Amazingly, a graduating class of ap- proximately 260 students (including July graduates) filled each of the general assembly's 3,000 seats with family and friends. As evidenced by the sea of cameras, video re- corders, noisemakers and banners, an air of pride, joy and in many cases re- lief, permeated the anx- ious crowd. With the fa- miliar, but never outdated, tune of Pump and Cir- cumstance playing in the background, 260 future lawyers, cloaked in tradi- tional cap and gown, emerged from...

Page 2 Comment August 2002 WELCOME BACK!!!! Top Ten Things You Need to Know About STCL 10. South Texas is not an Ivy Tower that guarantees its students place- ment in the law firm or corporation of choice. South Texas is, for all intents and purposes, a working man's (or woman's) school. Success here is not granted merely because one is admitted. Success here, and beyond for that matter, is achieved the good old fashion way. It is earned! 9. Despite complaints from many poorly motivated students, Career Resoucres does a pretty good job. However, Dean Green and his staff are not miracle workers. Do they mistakes every now and then? Sure, but who doesn't? You cannot expect to waltz into CRC two months before graduation or summer break with a 2.4 G.RA. and get an offer from Vinson & Elkins the next week. Ain't Gonna Happen! 8. Parking has improved, but it can still be atrocious, especially at 10:00 on a Wednesday morning. 7. Professor's are usually right when they blame students fo...

August 2002 News Page 3 By Gary Rosin Professor of Law á Are You At Risk on the Bar? O n the February 2002 administration of the Texas Bar exam, only 70.5% of takers from Texas law schools passed the Bar on their first attempt. For first-time takers from South Texas College of Law (STCL), the passage rate was 67.4%. As shown in Table 1, those passage rates are down from those on the July 2000 and July 2001 Bars, but are comparable with those on the February 2001 Bar: Table 1 First-Time Bar Passage Rates Texas Law Schools STCL July 2000 81.7% 81.6% Feb. 2001 68.5% 67.8% July 2001 Q.A 1 CL 85.5% OH. 1 7C Feb. 2002 70.5% 67.4% With the February 2003 Bar just around the corner, many of you December graduates must be wonder- ing whether you are at risk on the Bar. The question is not whether you are at risk- all graduates of all law schools are at risk on the Bar. The Bar exam is the Mother of All Law Exams. It covers most of the subjects you took in law school-and, probably, some you di...

Page 4 Special Aueust 2002 BAR, from pg. 3 In addition, the February Bar is more likely to include students who are still taking classes towards the degree. The Board of Law Examiners allows you to sit for the Bar if you're within four hours of graduation. Students who are taking classes while studying for the Bar must split their preparation time. Because fewer people take the February Bar, students preparing during January and February may feel more isolated. More of their friends are not studying for the Bar, but are instead carrying on life-as-usual. To the extent that the February Effect is due to relatively poorer studying conditions, one would expect that weaker students would tend to be more strongly affected. We know from internal studies that part-time students tend to have lower Bar passage rates than full-time students with similar STCL GPA's andLSAT's. Moreover, this effect is more pronounced in February than in July. We also know that February Bars generally have highe...

Page 8 Special Aiieust 2002 By W.C. Bullard Staff Writer IF WE BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME w ith the construc- tion of the Fred Parks Li- brary completed, STCL eagerly awaits the com- mencement of construc- tion of the T. Gerald Treece Courtroom. Still in the fund raising stage, this traditional courtroom is to be equipped with modern audio-visual capabilities. It will be a showcase teaching facility utilized by STCL faculty, students and local legal profession- als. The Treece Courtroom was planned by a commit- tee composed of faculty members, staff and alumni combines the architecture of the traditional court- room with modern techno- logical features. The structure will be unparal- leled not only in its in- tended use but also in its design. "The key goal of the design committee was the addition of a 'state-of-the- art' courtroom facility to STCL. Yet the committee felt that the purpose of the facility was equally impor- tant. The design the com- mittee agreed upon is one that incor...

August 2002 Advice e 9 By Lou Ann Nolan Staff Writer Dear Justine, Dear Justine, Here I sit in law school. All I seem to do is read, read, read. Now as the semester is about one half over everybody is talking about "outlining." I am about to pull my hair out, what are they talk- ing about? There are only 24 hours in a day, how can I do this also? The Sleepless One L Dear Sleepless, First of all, who said there were only 24 hours in a day??? Some days are longer and some are shorter than 24 hours, technically speaking. Outlining is a tech- nique to help you organize and know the material your professor is teach- ing. An outline for Pro- fessor Mirrow's Property I class will be different from the outline for Pro- fessor McGreal's Prop- erty I class and both will differ from the Emanuel's or Gilbert's canned Prop- erty outlines. The secret is that you are outlining for YOUR professor's class ONLY! First, I would advise you to go by the professor's syllabus and type that information int...

August 2002 BAR, from pg. 5 what's available in Academic Support. If you're at higher risk of failing the Bar, focus on subjects tested on the Bar. Students with STCL GPA's below 2.333 are under Academic Supervision, and must take required and Bar courses. Students in the bottom half of the class (below 2.75 or so) should consider doing the same thing. Your goal is not just to graduate, it's to practice law. To do that, you have to pass the Bar. Graduating Students If you will graduate in December, you can't go back and retake the last couple of years of law school. The best advice for how to improve your chances of passing the Bar on your first attempt is to give it your full attention. A prominent advisor to various state Bar examin- ers has argued that it doesn't matter how high the examiners "set the bar." He reasons that Bar candi- dates will respond to a harder Bar by studying harder. That is good advice, especially for those who plan to take the February Bar. For the last thr...
