TILL MAKING HISTORY The Peiegrinus was first published in 1949 by a group of law students and faculty who formed a non-profit Texas corporation, The Society of the Peregrinus, Inc. Every member of the Student Bar Association Board of Governors was automatically a member of the Society of The Peregrinus Board of Directors. In addition, two members of the Law School faculty were appointed by the Dean to membership on the Board. The Editor of each yearly edition was appointed by the preceding Editor with the approval of the Board. The Editor then appointed his own staff. The first Editor of the Peregrinus. James P. Tennet, is pictured to the left. The Society continued to publish the Peregrinus until Texas Student Publications assumed the role in 1971. Through the past forty-nine volumes, the Peregrinus captured the monu- mental events at UT Law. The 2000 edition reflects upon select events while continuing to record the history-making events of 1999-2000. Portia With the birth of the Peregrinus yearbook came Portia, the title bestowed upon a female law student each year by popular election to recognize the gid ' s charm, grace, wit, and beauty, as well as her intelligence. The girl selected reigned for the year as the Portia of the School of Law, representing the school at the various university functions. m P . m ' .
