October 2002 By David Lee Asst. Editor News Page 9 The Legacy of 9/11 With the first anni- versary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 in recent memory, the South Texas College of Law has embarked on a yearlong effort to identify how the school can pursue its missions post-Sep- tember 11. "We hope to ac- complish this by hosting a series of forums to discuss rel- evant topics and identifying service projects for either the College community as a whole or for spe- cific organizations within the College," said Assistant Dean Wanda Morrow. "The faculty-stu- dent-staff forum held on September 12 gen- erated some good ideas," she said. "A committee made up of constituents from the three groups will meet in the next sev- eral weeks to plan for future activities." "Two [sugges- tions] that are first on our list to pursue fur- ther are from the College's Health Law Society, which relates to legal issues raised by bioterrorism, and an- other on Islamic ju- risprudence," said Professor...

Page 2 Comment February 2003 Letter to the Editor: I am writing this letter to mention a recent change in the school calendar. As students, we are all aware of the academic policies regarding minimum GPAs. We are also aware that there are penalties, up to and including dismissal, for failure to maintain a minimum GPA at STCL. In August, 2001,1 entered STCL to find an academic policy that allowed faculty members 30-days after that semester's graduation date to grade exams. Ostensibly this policy existed to provide the faculty with sufficient time to contemplate the exams before them, and render thoughtful, considerate grades through a thorough evaluation of each paper. However, in providing this timeframe to the faculty, the school's window between graduation and the start of classes for the next semester was less than thirty days. Thus, there existed a situation where a student would re- turn from the previous semester, embark on the new semester's course work, only to discover seve...

February 2003 News Page 3 By Amy L. Williams Staff Writer Students Benefit from Seasoned Lawyers' Experiences in New Pilot Program D< 'o you know what kind of lawyer you are going to be when you graduate? Do you know how to play by the rules? How are you supposed to treat clients or deal with different personalities in a case and still be true to yourself? How will your ability to handle situa- tions in your first few years of practice affect your entire law career? John Turner, class of 1970, and STCL bene- factor, has just the pro- gram for students look- ing for practical, hands- on tools to deal with ev- eryday practice situa- tions. Turner's program goes beyond the con- fines of a three-hour Professional Responsi- bility class. The pilot program is a combina- tion of textual material with seasoned personal experience to equip law students on the brink of becoming new lawyers with the tools needed to deal with professional issues all lawyers face on a daily basis.

Page 4 Commentary February 2003 By Matthew Riherd, Guest Colum- nist 661 : has been frequently re- marked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their con- duct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of es- tablishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever des- tined to depend for the po- litical constitutions on acci- dent and force." Alexander Hamilton Federalist No. 1 What is most alarming about the aftershocks of the attacks is not that feeling of vulnerability, nor the small nagging fear of further at- tacks, or the chest caving sor- row of our loss. It is the deaf- ening sound of silence that has smothered our country. When did it become so wrong in our county to ques- tion our government and the powers that be? There is more to being an American than waving a flag, eating apple pie and falling lock and step behind the President. Being an American means ar...

Page 6 Special February 2003 South Texas Heroes As most everyone knows, there is a chance our nation will go to war in the coming weeks, maybe even days. In an effort to prepare for that event, our political and military leaders have deployed thousands of troops to the Middle East. Those who are deployed must put their lives on hold to defend our country. They leave behind families, friends, careers, and law school. It has come to our attention that there are students at South Texas that have been, or are about to be deployed. These students are placing their legal education on hold so that the rest of us may continue our daily schedules. Therefore, it is with great honor, pride and respect that the Student Bar Association recognizes the following students: Daryl Aaron John Hafley Dr. Ken Peters Are You Interested in Running for a Position on the Student Bar Association? *****STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION 2003-2004 ELECTION NOTICE***** As a member of the Board, you have an opportunity to ...

February 2003 Special Page 7 w ant to escape the Hous- ton heat this summer but need to earn course credits toward yourJ.D.? How about earning those credits while studying abroad? Increasingly, legal employers are looking for individuals with an understanding of today's complex legal environment. Recognizing the importance of providing students with a legal education that transcends boundaries, South Texas College of Law co-sponsors a variety of summer study abroad programs, as well as two full-semester co- operative exchange programs, that immerse students in the study of international and com- parative law. Last summer, nearly 60 South Texas College of Law students joined law students from across the country for courses in inter- national and comparative law in one of the five STCL co-spon- sored study abroad programs. This summer, we again plan to offer five co-sponsored study abroad programs to provide South Texas students the option to experience the culture and legal systems o...

February 2003 Spotlight Page 9 International Law Society Plays Host JJ/very semester, South Texas hosts a number of foreign exchange stu- dents. Last semester the school hosted students from Bosnia, Turkey and Denmark. Last fall, the In- ternational Law Society (ILS) took the students out for a day on the town. The group visited the Museum of Natural History, the An- nual Greek Festival, and ended the night in Rice Vil- lage. The ILS also held a for- eign exchange student panel for the students of STCL. Dean Read, Assistant Deans: Wheeler, Morrow, Burnett, and Rensberger, along with other faculty and staff members attended the program. Students from each coun- try talked about the differ- ences between their educa- tional and legal systems in comparison to the Ameri- can legal system. The fol- lowing are excerpts from the Q & A period: Darko (Bosnia): Question: "Is there a re- quirement that you finish college before entering law school?"

Page 2 Comment March 2003 Letter to the Editor: At disturbs me that STCL is consistently ranked as a Tier IV school - there is no reason we cannot have a national reputation for excellence in legal education. At least, there is no reason out of our power to fix. STCL has so much potential that I refuse to believe we should be relegated to the bottom tier of law schools. However, in the words of a military hero, "Potential means you ain't done anything yet!" In the three years I have attended STCL, we have done nothing in so many areas. In those areas, we need institutional change - core changes that redefine how our school operates, how we identify and solve problems, and how we rise to meet contemporary challenges. One vital institutional change must address the lack of diversity awareness within our community. Prior to attending law school, I worked as a corporate executive with three Fortune 100 corporations. I served as a Captain in the U.S. Army. I've lived all across the U.S. ...

March 2003 News Page 3 By Lori Laird Staff Writer Celebrating the T.

The typical response is a laundry list of each schools strengths and weaknesses-filtered through the eyes of the speaker, of course. But in- variably, no matter who you ask about South Texas College of Law, the re- sponse is, "great advocacy program!" But one needn't rely on anecdotal evidence to secure this opinion. Just a stroll through the front hall of the Cullen wing tells the tale. Cups, trophies, plat- ters, plaques...photos of smiling winners and their coaches. There are more awards than there is room available in the trophy cases that house them- many taking temporary refuge on tables, others scattered in various areas around campus-yet all proclaiming the over- whelming successes en- joyed by the advocacy pro- gram at S...
