Annotati 'OA/S^ÜÜ? L VOL. XIX NO. 6 NOVEMBER 1990- Students criticize tutoring for giving some an unfair program advantage By Steve Petrou A tutoring program that has helped several new students score some of the highest grades in their classes has come under fire from other students who claim that tuition money is being used to give an unfair advantage to a select group of students. "We're all graded against each other and compete against each other in jobs," said David Wilson, a first year student from Lufkin. "It's not fair to allow some students to have an edge over others." But Assistant Dean Elizabeth Dennis, who oversees what is officially called the academic support program said she is pleased that the program is achieving its main goal of keeping new students from dropping out of law school. Since it was launched in the fall of 1989, the tutoring program has helped 50 "high risk" students. Dean Dennis said those selected for special attention were students who were admitted...

PAGE 2 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER 1990 DICTA By Raymond Daniel Annotations Editor Though we kidded around about it before Criminal Procedure, there was no doubt in either of our minds that what had happened was a very serious matter. A woman, a friend of mine, had just been the victim of an assault and attempted robbery in the parking lot. It was broad daylight. Though she was able to laugh about it as she told me her story, we both realized that she could have been killed. And we, and those around us, realized that what had happened to her could have happened to any of us. Or to one of our friends. We can't allow this to happen. After learning of this incident, Dean Wilks acted immediately to beef up the school's security. This decision deserves our applause, but we can't let it stop there. The school's security needs to be monitored to ensure that students, faculty, staff and visitors may enter and exit our school without being assaulted. We can't expect our safety to rest solely with t...

PAGE 4 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER 1990 Wilks, Treece debate the method of judicial selection in Texas Treece By Karen Ball All-out verbal sparring recently erupted in the Student Lounge as two of South Texas College of Law's most eminent debaters partook in an organized argument on the merits of judicial elections vs. judicial appointments. The week after the debate, the Supreme Court overturned Georgia's at-large system of electing judges, which is akin to Texas' system. Some detractors of the present Georgia and Texas judicial election systems urge that judges should be elected from districts for more equitable representation. But others concerned with judicial selection advocate a complete revamping of the system to initiate gubernatorial appointment of judges. Deans Bill Wilks and Gerald Treece engaged in a parliamentary, Oxford-style debate (accepting questions in mid-debate) on whether Texas should retain judicial elections or institute an appointment system for judges. The two were...

NOVEMBER 1990 ANNOTATIONS PAGES It's not the typical job STCL Disability Clinic offers students hands-on experience By Jeny Clark For many second and third year law students finding a job that provides for client contact and allows for individual decision making is almost impossible, and they are often relegated to filing papers, running errands or researching obscure points of law. With this in mind, these students eagerly await the day when they become full partners and can choose their own cases while acting freely on behalf of their clients. However, this dream usually takes years of hard work and many long hours- On the other hand, it could take two months. Such is the case for the seven students involved in the South Texas Disability Clinic. the experience I Had with these interns has resolved it. To watch their dedication and It has been a little over two months from the time the South Texas Disability Clinic opened and since then the seven third-year student interns have org...

PAGE 6 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER 1990 South Texas graduate handles 'revolutionary' new case By Jerry dark The claim has been around for more than two hundred years and potentially could be worth close to $100 billion, yet it has never come close to being heard, let alone resolved. That is until recently, when a South Texas graduate and current professor became involved. The claim involves a Revolutionary War debt where Jacob De Haven, a wealthy Pennsylvania Merchant, lent the Continental Congress $450,000 to support George Washington's troops at Valley Forge in 1777. The debt has never been repaid and De Haven's descendants are attempting to take the government to court to collect the money they believe they are owed, which with an annual percentage rate of 6 percent totals $98.3 billion. But while the debt may have been around for 213 years, the attorney chosen to handle the case had not been a member of the bar for long-she had been practicing for three weeks. Jo Beth Kloecker, who gra...

NOVEMBER 1990 ANNOTATIONS PAGE? Pat Foley Begin preparing now for international career, world trade rep says By Andy Marker The time to start preparing to be a successful international lawyer is now, said a representative from the World Trade Division of the Greater Houston Partnership. Success in the field of international law requires more than a solid background in the American legal system, said Pat Foley, program director, World Trade Division. She told a group of around 30 South Texas College of Law students at an Oct. 11 meeting of the International Law Society that the key to successful international practice is mastering both the legal system and language of a foreign country. "You have to go beyond American law to find a good job," she said. "If you understand another country's legal system," Foley said, "you stand a better chance of getting a job." The growth of the international market, coupled with dramatic changes in Europe and the Soviet Union, is opening new doors of...

NOVEMBER 1990 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 9 Students traded their books for barbecue, beer and bids at the SBA Faculty-Student Picnic on September 29. Students enjoyed a barbecue dinner at Spotts Park. The event was highlighted by a auction in which professors donated items. This year student organizations had professors and other donate items, and the money raised on these items went to the organizations. A total of $1518 was raised. $638 was raised by the Black Law Students Association. A dinner for six at Dean Wilks' house was the top money raiser. It was purchased for $135 by Seward Snell, a former professor at South Texas. Professor Mark Steiner donated perhaps the most unusual item. The highest bidder on his donation won the right to cut off his ponytail. Two free recitation passes and a Black's Law Dictionary were donated by Professor Michael Wheeler. Even without the dictionary, this was a steal!

PAGE 10 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER Reader fears for republic after reading "In My Opinion" To the editor: It is, or should be, rare for one to find himself outraged by the expression of ideas with which he fundamentally agrees. However, if In Mv Opinion is the best defense Annotations can offer for the First Amendment and the environment, perhaps the time has come to fear for the survival of the republic If the literary excrement and intellectual dandruff offered thus afar are indicative of the abilities of nation's best and brightest, it should come as no surprise when the brown shirts begin walking the hall. This summer, the column purported to stand for the First Amendment, and argued against censorship and racism. These are ideas on which widespread agreement should be had. The audience to which it is directed should be sympathetic. Yet instead of a thought provoking essay, the column acts as an apologist. The language and tone of the column demonstrate the ignorance Picnic planners a...

NOVEMBER 1990 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 11 Students learn about differences in American, English legal systems Though they looked as though they'd be right at home singing Monty Python's "I'm a Lumberjack," they were actually English barristers. On their recent travels, in which they debated schools throughout the United States, they found themselves in Houston, where they debated at Rice. While in Houston, two of the four debaters stayed with Kellye Heasley, a South Texas student. Kellye and South Texas students David Falk, Shelly Flowers and Alan Wittenberg entertained the four Englishman at The Gingerman one evening. There they learned the differences in the American and English legal systems. The differences are substantial. In England, a student must make a declaration to study law when starting as an undergraduate. They must also declare whether they will become a solicitor or a barrister. Solicitors do all of the legal work and handling of clients outside of the courtroom, including a...

PAGE 12 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER 1990 Integrity, service, dedication make a good lawyer, judge says By Scott Cordes Recognizing that she may not have the flare that previous guest speaker Richard "Racehorse" Haynes has, nor the money that next month's speaker Joe Jamail has, Judge Alice Oliver Trevathan expressed something that all three have in common: an extremely high enthusiasm for the honored profession of lawyering. Judge Trevathan, judge of the 151st judicial district, spoke to South Texas students September 27. Her speech was sponsored by the BOA Judge Trevathan was quick to recognize that most of the lawyers she has seen in the last four years on the bench are a credit to the profession. However, the Judge noted that, "we are getting a real bad rap in the public, because we are just not as bad as they say we are." Most of the attorneys she knows are really honorable people. Perhaps the reason lawyers have a "bad rap" is that some are motivated by riches. However, Judge Trevatha...

NOVEMBER 1990 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 13 Successful interviews require planning, employment agency owner tells WLF By Karen Ball Nancy Wooldridge, a certified public accountant who has an employment agency for attorneys, recently gave members of the Women's Legal Forum tips on successful interviewing. Her general tips included: be yourself, dress conservatively but reflect your personality, arrive early, maintain eye contact with interviewers, be friendly, don't monopolize the conversation but do be a full participant, find out something about the firm and/or interviewers beforehand and have a positive attitude. The last attribute is "particularly important if you have gotten three or four dink (rejection) letters. You know how people are attracted to people who are going out with other people. If nobody wants you, nobody wants you, so project an air of desirability," Wooldridge said. She cautioned the women to be prepared to participate in small talk about hunting, fishing, baseball playo...

PAGE 14 ANNOTATIONS NOVEMBER 1990 Wynne breaks tradition in choosing water instead of oil & gas Editor's Note: This is the first of a series of articles that will look at several varied ways attorneys are using their legal training. Texas has a lot of traditions. In Texas, the environment wasn't always considered to be a key ingredient in every deal that was made. Of course you wanted to have clean water to drink and fish in, but business was business and the show had to go on. When you're related to a former State Bar Association President, chances are pretty good you will follow in his footsteps and become an attorney yourself. It's just the way work here.

Five students receive point penalties for academic dishonesty Five students who admitted to signing the roll on a day when they were not in class were assessed point penalties by Dean BUI Wilks. This crackdown on student dishonesty came about as a result of one professor who consistently saw that a large number of students were absent, but saw very few absences on his roll sheet. He felt that students who had been absent on a certain date were signing in on that date if the professor had failed to turn in the roll to the registrar's office. To see if his theory was correct, the professor copied his roll sheet after one class and did not return the original to the registrar. After the roll was returned to him the next class, he saw that the names of six students who did not have initials by them after the previous class now had initials by them. These students' names were turned in to Dean Wilks. Wilks called each one in to his office and asked them why had gone back and signed the r...

PAGE 2 T ANNOTATIONS FEBRUARY 1991 DICTA By Raymond Daniel Annotations Editor Whenever we tiy to do something good for someone or our community, there will always be the chance that we will not live up to our expectations. Such was the case with the SBA food drive last November. Planned for the week after Thanksgiving, the project's goal was to raise over 4000 cans of food. That wasn't an unreachable goal since a similar food drive had raised over 3000 cans of food the year before. And with over 1300 students enrolled, this goal could have been reached had each student donated just three cans of food. But, alas, such was not the case. The food drive raised around 900 cans of food, or about three-fourth of a can per student. Why? The efforts to plan this event were well organized, credit here should go to Shaun Devine. She organized the drive and obtaining backing from the SBA. Some students gave food to avoid recitation, and some gave for the reward of giving. Those of Houston's hom...
