ANNOTATIONS 7 * Are the Grades in Yet? Phi Alpha Delta WARWICK BANQUET CAPS PHI ALPHA DELTA ACTIVITIES " II Y\ Y i The most recurrent complaint of students at any law school deals with grades. They are either too low or too late or both. If they are too low, the problem lies generally with the student, while the lateness of grades is the responsibility of the administration and the instructors. It is disconcerting to most* students to have to wait two or three or four months in anticipation of the last semester's grades. It is difficult to begin to study for finals while one's standing is in doubt. The problem is real and readily apparent. | The solution is not so clear. Consider the problem. Classes at South Texas range from 6 [to 150 with the mean lying close to 100. The average three hour final examination is thirteen pages long. This means for the "aver- age" instructors, thirteen hundred pages to read, decipher, analyze and grade. He must be objective, and the student's grade d...

ANNOTATIONS of The South Texas College of Law A PUBLICATION OF THE STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION WINTER 1968 HONOR CODE - 1st SEMESTER REPORT The students of South Texas College of Law again have an honor code, which is an important part of student life at this school. All law schools I know have an honor code. It places the responsibility for the conduct of student life squarely on the students where the responsibility should be placed. Just as the ethics of the licensed prac- ticing bar is subject to the control of the supreme court of the state, administered by local grievance com- mittees, the honor code and honor court of South Texas College of Law derives its power by grant of the admin- istration. That the administration of South Texas College of Law is clearly working toward a better defined relation- ship between school and student cannot be subject to good faith doubts when the honor code and its provisions are studied in any detail. The present code was adopted by the Student B...

* + HONOR CODE (cont.) pendent group to the benefit of some students, and the detriment of others. Editorially, I feel that it might be a fair solution to this problem if the instruc- tors would file a copy of the examination in the library where each interested stu- dent could see what prior examiners thought important about the course. It is now an honor code violation to sign a class card for another student, to remove one's own roll card from the card file, or ask any other student to do such an act. This works to the benefit of the conscientious student. We are all aware of the class attendance requirements, and no one should be allowed class cuts in excess of the number authorized. It has become a violation to fail to respond when called upon to recite. This is, as most older students are aware, very important. We have all seen name after name called with no response, yet a single glance could tell there were not that many students absent. It will also let the full penalty any...

LAW REVIEW The South Texas Law Journal was privileged to announce in September that Mr. John Ensle had been appointed as the faculty adviser for the law review. Mr. Ensle, who served on the staff of the Texas Law Review during his law school career, just retired from private practice, and has been particularly helpful in conveying to our staff the manners in which we can be of service to the Houston Bar Association as well as the State Bar of Texas. With Mr. Ensle's excellent assistance, the Jour- nal will become increasingly important to the practicing attorneys in Texas. The Board of Editors for the Fall, 1967, was selected earlier this semes- ter, and the positions on the Board are as follows: Editor-in-Chief Sam J. Brown Assistant Editor-in-Chief Ed Hardin Leading Articles Editors C. J. Bushman and Jack R. Bailey Casenotes and Comments Editors Gene Jones and John Hoft Book Review Editor Aubrey E.

ANNOTATIONS i*p>l Uk{ c A PUBLICATION OF THE STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION of The South Texas College of Law WHAT'S IN A NAME? Your school has changed! Based on figures released by the American Bar Association for the 1967-68 school year, South Texas College of Law ranks 35th in size among the 136 law schools in the nation currently accredited by the A.B.A. This places us easily in the top 30% of those approved. In a state boasting eight law schools, South Texas enjoys the third largest student enrollment. With the largest full-time staff in the school's history combined with the .expansion of its teaching facilities, South Texas Col- lege of Law is truly upon the threshold of prominence in the academic community. It is in light of these developments that several, both students and alumni alike, have begun to question whether the name ''South Texas College of Law" fairly reflects the stature of our school to the public at large. Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate our school's nam...

WHAT'S IN A NAME? (continued) nition as a major law school in this country, we will need a designation that will adequately project our achievements and standing. The title by which we are presently known gives, to many, the in- dication of smallness and the impression of moderate ability. These are connota- tions which we do not deserve and which we should now attempt to alter. Once we have agreed that such a change is desired, how may it best be accomplished? Although several methods come to mind, it is the suggestion of this writer that the Board of Governors of the Student Bar Association appoint a group of interested persons to study this ques- tion. They would receive proposals and comments from the students, instructors, and alumni and then prepare a recommen- dation report for the consideration of the Board of Trustees. It is hoped that we will now turn our thoughts to the selection of an identity that will mirror the individual personality of our student body and the leader...

SBA INITIATES LAW CLERK PROGRAM Beginning in the Summer Session, 1968, the Student Bar Association has gained Administration approval for the "Law Clerk Program". This program will be for those students enrolled in Legal Writing II who have already completed Legal Writing II (a). Mr. John Ensle, presently instructing Legal Writing II, is faculty sponsor of this program. Attorneys in the city will present to Mr. Ensle problems on actual cases on which re- search is needed, and these in turn will be given to those interested students enrolled in Legal Writing II as their in- dividual problem. In addition to the stu- dent working on an actual case problem and receiving one semester hour credit, the attorney, upon completion, will pay the student $25 for the paper which will pay in full his cost of enrollment in Legal Writing II. It is hoped that this program will prove beneficial to both the student and the practicing attorney. It is a fur- ther step toward meaningful participation by ...

AH NOTATIONS Of The South Texas College of Law 1220 POLK - HOUSTON, TEXAS DECEMBER 1968 TOWARD A LEGAL SPECIALTY by CHARLES J. WEIGLE A small boy with an interest in the legal profession, if asked what he would like to be on reaching maturity will reply in straight forward una- dorned fashion, 'a lawyer.' Two dec- ades later, on the eve of his entry into the world of, law, he is apt to produce the same answer, with unfortu- nately little or no interim thought devoted to the type, style, mark or modification of 'lawyer' he can and perhaps must be if he is to succeed or even survive. Formal legal education would be a unique entity were it not for the fact that the United States Navy has a- dopted the same format in its singu- larly surprising OCS program. There, would-be officers are carefully nur- tured in theory, with the utmost pre- caution taken to protect them from ever going near the water or even on board a vessel in dry dock until such time as they are commissioned Ensigns of ...

Legal Aid Cont. From Pagel yers are licensed, with very few ex- ceptions, without the slightest inqui- ry into their capacity to perform the practical functions of a counselor or an advocate. The appellate case method of study is really a form of escapism- a simplistic effort to solve a very complex problem in a neat, easy, com- fortable way which avoids the foul an- tiseptic odor of the jail house and the depressing atmosphere in the abodes of the poor. We must shake off the dead hand of Langdell and begin to work toward the "clinical" method of training. We must recognize that "cases" are people-- people with problems, just as doctors' "cases" are [Jeople with pain. We can do this not by abolishing the present system, but rather by supplementing it with legal aid of public-defender pro- grams for the more advanced students. This is already being done by many law schools throughout the nation, in- cluding The University of Texas in our own state. One of the finest programs of this ...

MUSSER DEMONSTRATES POLYGRAPH Most law students probably have a preconceived idea as to the function, s-impl ici ty, and limited applications of the polygraph testing device-other- wise known as the "lie detector." If, indeed, they have such an impression, it is clearly erroneous; for the poly- graph is neither simple in function, nor limited in application. Being aware of the possibility of such misconceptions, Phi Alpha Delta invited Mr. Bob Musser of Musser and Associates, a highly professional in- vestigation service, to bring one of his machines to the law school to de- monstrate • its functions and explain its many applications. Mr. Musser is the first to recognize that there is wide latitude for bad as well as good in the use of the poly- graph. For this reason he stated that there is a great need for education of the public in this area. He first explained that monitoring normal body functions is not a new concept in the search for truth. Cen- turies ago in China a man could...

BUSH Cont. From Page 4 posed Human Investment Act, to utilize private employers in the training of the unskilled and to make this not only feasible but also economically attractive through the allowance of tax incentives for the participants. He stated that Mr. Mills is a power- ful, but fair, chairman who remains unconvinced of the proposal's wisdom. Mr. Bush then discussed the recent appointment by Mr. Nixon of Daniel Moynihan as Director of Urban Affairs, a former liberal Democrat whose think- ing in the last year has undergone a complete reversal after a realistic appraisal of the failures of the li- berals and their centralized approach. One great challenge Mr. Bush sees for the new administration is the over coming of the country-club image of the Republican Party. He contends that this image of deafness to the problems of the poor is a myth which must be laid to rest by the economically sen- sible proposals which have been put forth. Mr. Bush stated that he encountered on the...

CAREER PLACEMENT THROUGH THE LAW STUDENT DIVISION by George Jacobs Almost universally the primary ob- ject of concern to a senior law stu- dent, with the possible exception of grades, is in finding that first job. Each year graduating law students a- cross the country initiate intensive, energetic searches for the perfect po- sition with the right firm which will assure them of a successful career. The search is not always an easy one and the law student quickly becomes aware of the many problems and obsta- cles with which he is faced. It is usually at this point that a student begins to seek some assistance in his efforts and it is precisely at this time that the Law Student Division can offer to it's members one of its most valuable and beneficial services. This service lies in the Law Student Divi- sion's placement program, an area in which the Division has made great strides in the past few years result- ing in a most outstanding nation-wide program. Regardless of the position o...

HINTS ON FRESHMAN EXAMS With final exams just around the corner, the Annotations felt that it would be appropriate and helpful to the freshmen to interview the instruc- tors of the three major first year courses: Torts, Contracts, and Real Property I. The following are some of the comments and hints which came forth. Torts: Mr. Reiter The first step in answering a law exam is to read the exam quickly without stopping to analyze. It should then be re-read as many times as necessary to make sure that the facts and issues are clear. The student should then determine the areas of law involved (i.e. an intentional tort). If further subdivision is necessary, it should also be included (assault and/or bat- tery). The student should then deter- mine the respective issues involved and he should decide whether the is- sues require broad based answers or more general ones. The second paragraph should contain a "general resevoir of law." The stu- dent should begin by using concise, accurate def...

SPECIALTY Cont. From Page 1 Whatever the basic Interests prove to be, further efforts should be made, while in school, to enlarge upon them. After finishing, to the extent possi- ble, the required courses, electlves can be sought out to bolster the aca- demic background of the student in a particular area. Specific electives can be shored up with complimentary courses of a contributing pattern. The man who loves misery, for example, would also find, in addition to torts, the anguish of legal medicine and the mysteries of Insurance, Workman's Com- pensation and Damages fascinating. If he is going to do more than contem- plate or theorize in this field, how- ever, he will have to prepare himself for practice, which of necessity in this area takes place in the court- room. All the procedure he can absorb, interspersed with Evidence and Prac- tice Court would be indicated. Finally, the student can narrow his focus somewhat further through one of the advanced writing courses, giving his ...

ANNOTATIONS of The South Texas College of Law 1220 POLK - HOUSTON, TEXAS FEBRUARY 1969 PROMISE OF THE PRIVATE PRACTIONER toy Charles J.Weigel In analyzing the areas of legal work available to a graduating law student it becomes convenient to first cate- gorize them into three general fields: private practice, governmental or pub- lic service, and corporate counsel. These three fields draw the largest portion of aspiring attorneys, and of these the first, private practice, is the motivating factor in the commence- ment of most legal education. If the motivation is not present at commencement, it quite often looms large at the conclusion of law school. It seems that the young graduating law student's position is analagous to that of a pedestrian, city-bred type who moves to the country and engages in fierce and costly bidding for a horse. Now having bought the horse, whatever his original designs, he feels somewhat of an obligation to do the traditional thing, and with no other impetu...
