A South Texas College of Law m nnotationS VOL. XVIII NO. 6 FEBRUARY 1990 Sub-committee Will Propose New Code Cheating Policy Concerns Students : Mm Hv-v • - K: Mid-law senator Moses Mercado (left) makes a point while BOA Director Carl Shaw takes notes. SBA President Paul Clayton (front) and CLS President Laura Hunt Swonke listen as others discuss the cheating policy. The failure of the cur- rent academic mis- conduct policy to firmly deal with stu- dents who cheat was the chief concern of the 16 student leaders who met January 20 at The Houstonian. The group, which SBA president Paul Clayton has established as a permanent, standing SBA committee (the Executive Committee), met so that student leaders could share various student con- cerns. Though several topics were discussed, the prime concern presented was that of cheating. Clayton explained to the committee that the current policy divides academic dishonesty into cheating on exams and having possession of unauthorized material. Th...

■ Page 2 ANNOTATIONS FEBRUARY 1990 Dicta By Raymond Daniel All faculty, staff and students are charged with the responsibility of enforcing the new smoking policy. Because the old policy was routinely ig- nored, some smokers may have trouble in adjusting to the new policy. A few simple steps will help make it easier to make this policy enforceable. First, all faculty, staff and students should read this policy so that they will know where the smok- ing and non-smoking areas are located. Copies of this policy are posted throughout the building, but anyone unable to find one should see Dean Dennis or Maggie Kautz. Second, if you're a smoker, never smoke in a non-smoking area. If this rule is followed there should not be any problems. Third, since Step Two, will probably be vio- lated, develop a short staement with which to con- front someone who is found smoking in a non-smoking area. Be polite. Let me repeat that. Be polite. Say something like, "Excuse me. Our school has just adopted...

Rather urges return to old Texas values By Steve Petrou Dan Rather, who reports on rapidly changing world events, returned to the law school he once attended to urge graduates to go back to the "values of the old Texas." Addressing over 180 graduates at South Texas College of Law, the CBS News Anchorman told the soon-to-be lawyers that money and power is not as important as generosity. Rather recounted the depression era story by James Agee of an old pov- erty-stricken woman who was asked what she would do if she was given a million dollars. "I reckon I'dgive it to the poor," Rather quoted her as replying. Rather grew up in Texas and is a good ac- quaintance of former judge and STCL Professor Spur- geon Bel, who worked with Rattler's father in the oilfields during the Depression. Rather said the story of the old woman who was in- terviewed in her rodüng chair deep in the woods, is what the Texas of Judge Bell is all about. "It's easy to think of wealth, power, making part- ner or ge...

Page 2 ANNOTATIONS JUNE 1990 DICTA By Raymond Daniel Annotations Editor Regardless of your personal feelings about Dan Rather, you must admit that it was quite a coup for South Texas to get someone of his calfcer as the commencement speaker. We should continue to seek commencement speakers of national importance, and the search for the May and December graduations should begin now. The commencement speaker is most important to those people who go through graduation, and it is they who should speak up about the selection of a graduation speaker. How- ever, it is Dean Wilks who has. the final decision over the selection of the graduation speaker. Since coming here nearly a year ago, Wilks has been receptive to students. He has listened to them when many were concerned about proposed schedule changes, and has listened to them in his office, at forums and meetings. There is no reason to think that he will not listen now. However, in order for him to hear anything, students must be willi...

Annotate ONSMMs . VOL XIX NO. 3 AUGUST 1990 4 Joscelyn Wilder dies in auto accident The South Texas ^College of Law Disability Clinic will be housed in a once vacant building at 1602 San Jacinto. South Texas opens disability clinic By Raymond Daniel A legal clinic has existed in the minds of several faculty members for a number of years, and has existed on paper for the past year. When the fall semester begins on August 20, the clinic will exist at 1602 San Jacinto, just three blocks south of South Texas. South Texas' first clinic will be a disability clinic. The claims that the clinic will handle will involve federal government entitlements such as social security benefits, which stem from medical limitations on the clients' ability to work, and to a lesser extent, direct income supplements such as food stamps and aid to families with dependent children. Cathy Burnett, Director of Clinical Studies, said that b disability clinic was chosen as South Texas' first clinic for a number o...

Page 2 ANNOTATIONS AUGUST 1990 DICTA IN MY OPINION By Raymond Daniel Annotations Editor Dean Wilks has stated that he wants to be more successful in communicating with students (and faculty) this year. This is not only a worthy goal, but one that is essential for someone in his position. To accomplish this, he has budgeted money for mailboxes. This will help him in his efforts to better communicate with students, but other campus offices and organizations will benefit as well. Let's face it, Dean Wilks is not the only person who has difficulty in communicating around here. It's a widespread problem. Decisions which affect students are made without students having the least idea that proposals are even being considered. For example, many four-hour courses were changed to three-hour courses without students knowing that this proposal was being considered. Notices are sometimes posted with information that is vital to students, but these are often posted just a few days before students...

AUGUST 1 990 ANNOTATIONS Page 3 AALS accreditation remains high priority for Wilks By Raymond Daniel After a year on the job as dean and president of South Texas College of Law, Dean Bill Wilks has the same goal in mind as he did when he arrived: to make the southwest and the country aware that South Texas is a great law school. Wilks made a number of changes during his first year as he tried to achieve his goal, and more are in store in the upcoming year. Not the least of these is attaining accreditation from the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). Of the 13 standalone law schools in the fountry, only four do not haveghe AALS accreditation. The AALS accreditation is important not only because South Texas wants to be thought of in the same class of schools as those who have that accreditation, Wilks said, but for other practical reasons as well. The AALS accreditation is important in the recruitment of quality faculty. Wilks said that he failed to lure one or two good facult...

Please let us know who you would like to see in future issues. By Steve Petiou At one time Julia Dawn Epps had aspirations of becoming a Playboy model, but the murder of her father shattered her world and strengthened her desire to study law. With her flowing blonde hair and her shapely figure, Julia Epps gets more than her share of stares as she walks the halls of South Texas College of Law, but behind her smile and easy manner is a serious drive to succeed. Epps' journey to law school was motivated by a personal tragedy. Charles Epps, her bigger than life father, in whose footsteps she hoped to follow, was shot to death inside his Houston home four years ago. "It devastated me," said Epps. "For a long time I had this helpless feeling." Charles Ep...
