Williams Staff Writer Anniversary of 9/11 Terrorists Attacks: A Time of Reflection and Remberance It's hard to believe that 365 days have come and gone since the tragic events of Sep- tember 11, 2001, where planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A third plane went down in an open field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. All told, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the most orchestrated terror- ist attack on a major world power ever. Since that fateful day, this country has suffered anthrax attacks, gone to war with the Taliban, been unable to de- termine where Osama bin Laden is hiding (or even de- termine if he is dead or alive), seen the collapse of Enron, and experienced a double-dip recession. From fear and disbelief in thos...

Page 2 Comment Bookstore Problems Why Basic Business Rules Apply Even in Law School Bookstores Business, like the law, has a set of very definite rules. On the first day of business school, much like the first day of law school, those rules are set out. One such rule is to "treat your customers with respect." But, who defines respect? And as a proprietor, how do you know whether or not you have successfully adhered to this most basic of rules? In business, unlike the law, answers to often perplexing questions like these are answered rather simply - your customers will tell you. The sentiment shared by a significant portion of South Texas students/customers is that a certain member of the bookstore's management has long since forsaken this fundamental principle of business. Where's the proof? Everywhere! Engage any student in conversation about the bookstore, and you're likely to hear, "What is his problem?" Listen to professors in class, and you're likely to hear, "He's the manager ...

SeDtember 2002 News Page 3 By Natherral Washington, Editor-in- Chief Deans For A Day i\t promptly 9:24am, an hour and a half after the rest of America starts the work day, Richard Laminack and Tom Pirtle arrived at 1303 San Jacinto via stretch limo - ready to assume their duties as Deans for the Day. Decked out in royal crowns and robes, and flanked by an anxious crowd of reporters, the two STCL alumni (and their ante rage) were rushed to a bank of waiting elevators. Upon exiting the el- evators, Deans Laminack and Pirtle immediately comman- deered the office of Dean Tom Read. Former Dean Read was banished to a smaller area just outside of his old office. When asked about the limo and its impact on the South Texas budget, Pirtle replied, "The limo is to save on park- ing." "And it looks good when we're taken to our private jet," added Laminack. After summoning ci- gars and chewing to- bacco from one of their many assistants, the deans were ready to tackle the tough issues. First up ...

Page 4 Spotlight September 2002 By Lori Laird, Staff Writer a Second Career Students Make Their Mark 1 articipation in student or- ganizations provides students with significant learning expe- riences beyond the classroom. Affiliation with a student or- ganization offers cultural, so- cial, and fellowship opportu- nities. But of equal impor- tance students encounter the opportunity for leadership de- velopment and community out- reach. Student organizations are a dynamic and vital part of campus life at South Texas College of Law. There are approximately twenty-eight student organizations on cam- pus-one of which is the Sec- ond Career Students Associa- tion. The Second Career Stu- dents Association was formed to assist part-time students assimilate into the law school environment and to serve as an advocate on their behalf. When the group was originally formed it was known as the Part-Time Stu- dents Organization, however the group evolved to include full-time students who had alre...

September 2002 Career Page 5 A Piece of Information for Our Part-Time Students: A Message From the Career Resources Center Many factors directly related to your status as a part-time student will affect your career planning. Although part-time students enter law school with different levels of experience and goals, some generalizations are possible. There is no doubt that many employers value students with legal experience. Legal experience not only demonstrates to employers that you are committed to pursuing a career as an attorney, but it provides you with references who can attest to your abilities in a legal environment. I will candidly admit that there are many graduates of the part-time program presently in rewarding legal positions who were unable to pursue legal experience while attending the part-time division. Each student must weigh individually the costs of obtaining legal experience. Many part-time students find it difficult because they work full time, are established ...

Page 6 9/11 from, pg. 1 September 2002 in my office to tell me that not only had the WTC been at- tacked, but a plane had also crashed into the Pentagon. Not being able to get any in- formation from the Inter- net, I stepped into the com- mon area on my floor. Someone had pulled a tele- vision out for people to watch. About 30 people had begun to gather around it. I approached the crowd just as the first tower collapsed. Everyone stood there stunned. The only sounds 1 remember hearing were the sounds of the television broadcast and weeping. There was not a dry eye in the crowd. Then minutes later the other tower fell. When I vacationed in New York City during Spring Break this year, my visit to Ground Zero just happened to be on the six-month anni- versary of the attacks. As I stood on the platform over- looking Ground Zero and paid my respects, the grief experienced by the crowd and the observance of the devastation made the events seem all too real and all too fresh, despite the l...

September 2002 Page 7 By Gerald Francis, Staff Writer O Nightlife: Evening Students Speak Out f the 1,231 students enrolled at the South Texas College of Law, about a third are part-time stu- dents. Most of these part- time students attend STCL's evening division. The evening division is con- sidered the time frame from 5pm to 9:30pm. Of the three law schools in Houston, only STCL and the University of Houston Law Center have part-time evening schedules, but only STCL allows part- time students to attend day classes. STCL was founded with the goal of providing quality legal edu- cation to working students. However, as the student body of the school changed, so did its focus. Arguably, STCL now ca- ters to its younger day-stu- dent population. Your Typical Night Student Most of the students in the evening division work full-time, and are second career students looking to leverage their current oc- cupations with a law de- gree. Many of the part- time students tend to be a little olde...

Page 8 Special Open Furum: Where Did You Clerk This Summer? S8Bigfflte& 2002 OUTTAKES By Erum Jivani, Staff Writer D uring the summer, law students often obtain ex- perience through clerkships and internships. Below stu- dents talk about the advan- tages and disadvantages of these coveted positions. Students also offer candid advice to fellow students about summer clerkships. Phil Slaughter, 3L: Harris County District Attorney's Office, Special Crimes Bu- reau ¡M|| I enjoyed working at the DA's office this summer be- cause I got my own caseload and hands on experience. The biggest advantage is that I got my 3rd year bar card, which allows me to practice under a licensed attorney, argue motions, and try mis- demeanor cases. The advice I would give to students about summer clerkships: "Find a job with someone who will give you hands on experience and let you sink your teeth into the profession, not just paper crunching!"

September 2002 Advice Page 9 By David Lee, Assis- tant Editor Yada, Yada, Yada... L/et's face it - advice from many upperclass- men regarding the first semester of law school is hit-or-miss, at best. On one hand, there is the guy who tells you to not worry about Con- tracts I - just read the "canned" briefs, add onto an old outline (in- stead of creating your own), and expect an A from a given professor. Sure! On the other hand, there is the library rat whose nose is buried in his Civil Procedure casebook until mid- night every night. His advice, "Study like crazy and hope to get at least a C like he did." The key is to take ev- ery piece of advice on the first semester of law school with a grain of salt. So - naturally - this article should be read with a skeptic's eye. See something that looks absurd? Forget it and move on. See something that might help your studies? Try it out; maybe adapt it to your habits. The Backbone Without a doubt, class notes, briefs prepared before class ...

Page 2 Comment October 2002 STUDENT ORGANIZATION CALENDARS Blade Law Students Association No matter what you call it - a dirty little secret, or a stinky situation - the student restrooms here at South Texas (particularly the men's rooms on the fourth and fifth floors) are disgustingly unsanitary. From standing water, to broken urinals, to overflowing waste receptacles and oh yes that smell! WHAT IS THAT SMELL? Getting the standing water and broken urinals out of the way, lets just call both of those "plumbing problems." In a 20-year-old building that is in constant use, there will be a plumbing problem or two every now and again. That's to be expected, so for the sake of fairness, we assume the administration is aware of the plumbing problems and a fix is in the works. Waste receptacles, or in Texas parlance, "trashcans." The problem here is obvious. The trashcans are too small for the traffic that passes through the restrooms. On most class days, usually by noon, the trashcans are...

October 2002 By Lori Laird Staff Writer A News Page 3 ABA Re-Certification Background R< ^e-certification is a complex process. Our campus operations will be inspected by two dis- crete organizations. The first organization is the American Bar Associa- tion (ABA). The second organization is American Association of Law Schools (AALS). The ABA's section on legal education is the official accreditation agency as sanctioned by the De- partment of Education. The ABA's examination is objective in nature. There are extensive lists of standards that cover every aspect of law school operations. South Texas' compliance with these standards will be evaluated. South Texas has been accredited by the ABA for many years. ABA accreditation is re- quired to for students to sit for the state bar. The second group is the AALS-Association of American Law Schools. Membership in this orga- nization is restricted to schools that have been ABA accredited for a long time and maintain standards that excee...

"She invited me to spend a half day at her firm sitting in on some meetings, meeting the associ- ates, and just getting an idea of how an English firm oper- ates. I also got to eat lunch at the Middle Temple, a sort of private London law society where no one except mem- bers get to eat lunch, but somehow the administrator of the London program got us in. I also got to have tea at an English prison that we toured. We were actually inside the prison, having tea!"
