lBOVE: Construction of the Tarlton Law Libraiy began in 1977. :IGHT: The students of UT School of Law voted on December 2, 1970, to 5call Darwin McKee (pictured right) from the presidency of the Student lar Association. There were 1014 students voting — 58% of the elec- jrate; final count was 610 - 402, with 2 blank ballots. The recall vote was rompted by McKee ' s attendance at an American Bar Association (ABA) ionvention held October 10-12 in New Orleans. McKee obtained $200 om the SBA and $300 from the Law School Foundation to attend the leeting. He was later severely criticized and asked to resign because: I) e told neither group the other was funding him; 2) he was accompanied y Nathan Johnson (his roommate), when the Foundation and the SBA ' ssumed he would go alone, and, 3) the two flew first class, which was gainst both Law School and University policy. At the Fall Drunk in 1970, Dean Keeton crowned the final Portia, Bettie Willerson Driver, but prefaced his announcement with the donning of a women ' s lib button. Fourteen females did not participate in the 1970 Portia Competition because they believed a contest singling out females was not conducive to the promotion of equality between the sexes. Thus, they created a student organization known as Law Students for Equality of the Sexes, com- mencing the women ' s lib movement at the law and ending the twenty-two year old Portia competition. 4 QjCmiiU TiXa UA.

Dedication of the Tom Clark Lounge In honor of a great alumnus. Justice Tom C. Clark, the Law School dedicated one of its principal rooms in 1966; the Fireside Lounge became the Tom Clark Lounge and remains as such today. The Justice ' s chair, his writings, and memorabiha were collected and made into a permanent display in the Lounge. Justice Clark, pictured to the right, visited the law school in 1966 to receive the tribute. Legal Research Board The Legal Research Board originated in 1962 to furnish qualified students an opportunity to gain skill in researching legal problems for lawyers over the state and the nation who had inadequate libraries or crowded trial dockets. At that time, the board was only the second established legal research board in the United States; LRB continues to provide valuable legal services today. First year law students are selected for membership in LRB based on out- standing performance in the freshlaw research and writing program. Pictured below are the original members: Lee AKvorth, Les Mendelsohn, John Holstead, John King, Bob Moore, James Kreimeyer, Mario Mailinez, Glenn Jarvis, Wanda Creamer, Bob Andrews, Jim Foutch, Warner Fassnidge, Laurance Fann, John Nelms, and Joe Spudock. 4 — The Years 1960- 1969

More Construction The northeast wing of the law school, which houses Keeion ' s Casino, organization offices, and classrooms today, developed in the early 1980s via a transformation of the old library. T.Q.s - Limited Purpose Faculty? In 1981, controversy over the content of the packet memo raised the issue of what status Teaching Quizmasters had in their own program. A new packet problem prepared by T.Q. supervisor. Prof. Bamdt, was used overT.Q. protests that the problem was too complicated and inappropriate. Grade Delays After almost five months of waiting for spring grades in 1981, some students grew upset about the lack of a grade deadline. The Student Bar Association approved a resolution calling for Dean Sutton to require professors to complete and post grades within 90 days after finals. Tarlton Law Library In June 1980, after three and half years of planning and construction, the Tarlton Law Library opened its doors. The Library cost over $9.6 million and became the fifth largest academic library in the country. A few years later, in 1987, cutbacks by the Texas Legislature forced Tarlton Library to close at 10 p.m. on weeknights. This measure led law students to rally, reach deep into their pockets and dole out money to pay for two Library staff members that would keep the Library open from 10p.m. to midnight. -The Years 1980-1989
