ANNOTATIONS ANNOTATIONS PAGES Entertainment lawyers need expertise, Randy Jamail says in SEL speech There is a growing market for attorneys interested in entering the music field, said Randy Jamail, but new attorneys may be surprised at the expertise that is required in order to practice law in this area. One must develop a working knowledge of the unique aspects of the industiy, he said. For example, negotiating a contract for an artist differs greatly from handling merchandise contracts because an artist has a psychological investment. In his speech last semester which was sponsored by the Sports & Entertainment Law Society, Jamail shared his philosophy with South Texas students. One should use all his talents and genuinely be interested in his work in order to do well, he said. A law degree is a valuable asset in any business and should be used to further an individual's talents rather than simply preparing him or her Tor a routine office practice. Jamail has practiced this p...

SBA sets referendum for March 4-5, election March 18-19 Student Bar Association elections have been postponed by one week because of alleged unconstitutional action by the Board of Governors. The action took place at the February 18 meeting as the Board attempted to resolve ambiguities regarding qualifications for office. Article 5, Section 4 of the SBA Constitution sets out the qualifications for each office. The section states that no person shall be eligible to file or to hold office unless a certain number of hours have been completed. The next section defines "completed" as those courses for which a passing grade has been received or those courses for which the requirements have been met but no grade has been received. At the meeting, several students hoping to seek office questioned whether this meant that the hours had to be completed by the beginning of the current semester or by the time the person began the term of office. Terms begin the day after spring graduation. The B...

PAGE 2 ANNOTATIONS MARCH 1991 Guest Column Hypo Logical v. Illogical (Everybody Else v. 4th Floor Smokers Club - STCL 1991) ... by Boyd Shepherd Now that scientific research is beginning to catch up with common sense, how long will it be before STCL bans smoking from the building; or will we all continue to turn our head, hold our breath, and hope somebody does something about the smoke filled hallways and lounge. It does not take a scientist to figure out the inhalation of second-hand cigarette smoke is harmful to the human body. One needs only to breathe near a lit cigarette and his body will adversely react. Some of us are allergic, some of us hold our breath until we are out of harm's way, others cough, and still others cuss under their breath. Whatever our immediate reaction is, it is not as bad as the long term reaction. Four years ago the U.S. Surgeons General's office and the National Research Council firmly linked passive smoking to lung cancer. Recently, the EPA released a...

PAGE 4 ANNOTATIONS MARCH 1991 South Texas student 'strolls' through Tenneco Marathon by Tucker Graves Marathon runners are asked many times why they do it. The "it" being a 26.2 mile "stroll" through the streets of Houston in the annual Tenneco Marathon. For myself and several other South Texas students and alumni, the answer lies much deeper than the standard "because it's there" philosophy. Debbie Rank and Joel Ephross (a 3L and 2L, respectively) joined this foolish 1L on January 20 in search of a simple quest-the finish line. (3L's and 2L's make much better runners than lL's because they have so much more free time.) I say the finish line because most marathoners, especially first-timers like Debbie and myself, only want to make it alive to the end in under five hours, which is the official time limit for a marathon. However when my wife discovered that first place was worth $25,000, she strongly suggested that I find some way to win either to cover either my impending emergency ...

MARCH 1991 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 5 War with Iraq affects legal studies of South Texas students By Sieve Petrou When allied forces launched their war against Iraq on January 16, the military action ended the law studies of at least four South Texas students who were called to active duty. Joe Willie, who was on his last semester before graduation, had just started his first week of his final semester when his Air Force reserve unit was activated. These days Willie, who is a dentist, is in England Air Force Base in Louisiana. Willie is filling in for regular Air Force medical personnel who were sent to Saudi Arabia. "He's working like hell over there," said Joe Willie, Sr., the father of the South Texas student. The elder Willie said his son arrives at the base clinic at 7 am and does not leave until 5 pm. Willie, Sr., who is also a dentist and was in the military during World War II, said he would be a lot more worried if his son was with combat troops in the Persian Gulf. "I wish they wo...

PAGE 6 ANNOTATIONS MARCH 1991 No longer in the shadows, mock trial teams earn recognition by Jeny Clark Iki the past, two words were synonymous with success at South Texas College of Law-moot court. Mock trial, on the other hand, was sort of the stepchild of competitions. It received very little recognition and whatever success it had was overshadowed by the moot court teams. However times have changed, and while the moot court teams continue to be preeminent in their field, the mock trial teams at South Texas have developed an identity of their own brought on by success under the direction of Professor Peter Murphy. In 1985 when Murphy became coach of the mock trial teams, he basically had to start from scratch. However, he knew that he had the talent and support on campus to develop teams that could consistently compete on a national basis- -he also knew it would take time. Murphy said much of the support early on came from the coach of the moot court teams, Dean Gerald Treece. "H...

PAGE 2 ANNOTATIONS APRIL 1991 DICTA Hypo By Raymond Daniel Annotations Editor Student organizations exist in order to meet the needs of their members. These members share some common desires and goals. As such, it is not surprising that student organizations work to help their members. But once a year, each of these student organizations come together to help South Texas College of Law. That time of year is Law Week. It runs April 4 - 10. We encourage members of each student organization (and those who are not members of student organizations) to support this school-wide joint effort. Law Week is in its sixth year. This year's event features nine speakers. Though every student will not be able to attend every speaker, each student should try to attend one or more. These speakers, which include a state official, a local judge and two South Texas graduates, are busy people. They have taken time out of their schedules in order to speak to the student of South Texas. We should thank the...

APRIL 1991 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 5 All Right tightens policy Students must 'tow' the line with new parking regulations By Doug Welmakcr You better watch out, you better not cry, your car is being towed and I'm gonna tell you why... Recently, AH Right Parking decided to implement a new parking policy among the lots adjacent to South Texas. Very simply, it consists of, "you park in an unnumbered space, you get towed." Although this may seem logical, this sudden about face in the All Right policy has caused students to question parking policies. Greg Brothers, Chief Financial Administrative Officer at South Texas, explained the towing situation. All Right decided to start towing cars March 10 after noticing that the illegally parked cars were interfering with the ingress and egress of properly parked cars. A paper sign was posted on the lock box warning of the towing, and All Right planned to begin towing that same week. However, a South Texas security guard noticed the sign and informed th...

PAGE 6 ANNOTATIONS APRIL 1991 Wilks can't promise hold on tuition, but will keep it at inflation rate South Texas explores joint programs By Steve Petrou Dean Bill Wilks said his goal is to prevent another tuition hike this fall, but there is no way he can guarantee that until his budget for South Texas is completed later this month. "I can't promise I can keep the tuition at the current rate," said Wilks, "but if tuition does go up it will not increase more than the current inflation rate of four to five per cent." Wilks said he is proposing to give another pay raise to professors, but he is asking all other departments at the school to draw the line on spending. "I want them to start with a zero budget," said Wilks, "Each department has to justify any increase in expense." SBA President Moses Mercado said the possibility of another tuition hike does not sit well with him. "I hope they remember the big tuition increase of last fall," said Mercado. South Texas had the largest tuitio...
