September 1991 Annotations Page 5 Doubting Thomases debate high court nominee's qualifications by Andy Marker While Senate hearings over the nomina- tion of Judge Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court continued in Washington, D.C., last week, there was another confir- mation hearing of sorts much closer to home. South Texas College of Law was the scene as STCL Professor Neil McCabe and Vinson & Elkins attorney Clark Ervin squared off last Thursday to debate the Thomas nomination. A capacity crowd packed Garrett-Townes Hall for the event, which was sponsored by the Student Bar Association and the Black Law Students Association. The theme of the debate was "The Thomas Nomination - Quota or Qualified?" Ervin said Thomas had been a "victim of a series of attacks none of which is justi- fied." Ervin dismissed accusations that Thomas is not qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. "If Judge Thomas is confirmed," Ervin said, "he will be the only justice in the history of the court,...

Paae 6 Annotations September 1981 Academic Support Program quietly celebrates second birthday by Bobbi Mihal Shhh! No, it's not a secret. The Academic Support Program has been at South Texas College of Law for two years now. Entering students got a first-hand account of the program from Associate Dean James Musselman during orientation. The pro- gram has been a big success. Before the program was started, 15 per- cent to 20 percent of first-year students whose LSAT scores were at the lower end of the admissions standards were dropping out because o flack of success in law school. Now, those students who were identified and participated in the program are still in school. Students are chosen in one of three ways. The most common way of qualifying is based on the LSAT score. Because the test measures analytical skills, those students with low scores may lack some of the necessary analytical skills, but their overall qualifications meet the criteria for admis- sion. The program is desi...

Fall entering class boosts overall enrollment to more than 1,400 by Lee King The entering class of fall 1991 is setting new records. South Texas College of Law admitted the largest class in its history. More than 300 new students have signed up for classes. The increase in the entering class also boosted overall enrollment to beyond 1400 students, another first for the college. "We have 305 people in the class that entered this fall," said Lylene Pilkenton, South Texas registrar. "Of that number, 231 go full time and 74 go part time." By comparison, the class that entered in fall 1990 numbered 282, and the class that entered in fall 1989 totaled 248. "We are definitely seeing an increase in the size of entering classes," she said. "Our overall student body is increasing, too," Pilkenton said. "We'...

Page 8 Annotations Swttmtar 1991 Parking woes leave students driving in circles by Lee King Finding a parking space is still a problem for some students at South Texas College of Law, but school officials say that improv- ing the parking situation is a high priority. "Coming in at midday, you can almost guarantee you can't find a space in either school lot," said first-year student Christa Kearney. "Since I've been here, I've only been able to park in the school lots twice.'' Other students have had similar problems. 'Tve already gotten a ticket," said part- time, first-year student Suzanne Bradley. "If I don't get here by 9 a.m., I can't find a place in either lot. I'm surprised that the school didn't build an underground parking lot when they built the school.'' Greg Brothers, chief financial and admin- istrative officer at STCL, admits there are problems and sympathizes with students whohavedifficulties.' 'Improving the park- ing situation is one of our top priorities,'' he said....

September 1991 Annotations Page 11 O'Quinn says hard work is key to big-time success by Steve Petrou Personal injury attorney John O'Quinn, who has won numerous multimillion dollar verdicts, told South Texas students there is "no magic trick" to winning the big case. O'Quinn said it takes a combination of skill and "work, work, work," to get a winning verdict from a jury. The fiery attorney spoke earlier this month at the invitation of the Board of Advocates and was introduced by Assistant Dean Gerald Treece, who called him a "man who has taken on the powerful giants of industry." O'Quinn said hard work takes the place of the magic trick.4 'It is staying up till 2 a.m., getting two hours of sleep and getting up again at four in the morning," said O'Quinn. O'Quinn said successful trial lawyers may sound like great orators, but' 'they know the law. You have got to know your evidence, know your rules." He said some students may be surprised to learn that while jurors are impressed by t...

Page 12 Kathleen Matev boards the airport shuttle for the first lee of her lournev home. COMMUTE, from page including a case of spaghetti sauce. For years Matey has known she wanted to attend law school. In fact, she came close to enrolling 12 years ago, but her husband, a physician, got stationed in Guam, so she put her plans on hold. When she decided to return to school, she had some doubts about the travel. "In fact, I was the one who kept saying to my husband, 'This will never work. You'll never get along without me. It won't work.' That was a real shock, too, to find out I was not indispensable at home," she said. There are drawbacks to her schedule, how- ever. To take advantage of low fares, Matey must make airline reservations weeks in advance, which means she cannot take part in many extracurricular activities at school. But, she added, there are advantages to com- muting, including in-flight instruction from attorneys. "They recognize those books. I've had all sorts of less...

Vol. XX No. 4 ANNOTATIONS Xhe Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law October 1991 tti Fortney celebrates after being declared high bidder lor lunch with 'Racehorse' Haynes. The auction highlighted the SBA picnic Sept. 29. School just says 'no' to enrollment boost by Steve Petrou Fot the first time efforts will be made to reduce rather than increase enrollment at South Texas College of Law. Instead of accepting 150 students for the spring 1992 semester, the law school plans to add 120 new students. The reduction comes at a time when gradu- ates of South Texas and other law schools are having a difficult time finding jobs. Dean Bill Wilks said the decision to cut the size of the entering class has nothing to do with the current job market, but is a response to faculty requests and to the elimination of admissions during the sum- mer session. The number of law students at South Texas reached a record high this fall when total enrollment peaked at over 1400 students. Wilks said...

Page 2 ¿namim SUPREME BEINGS October 1991 Editorial South Texas College of Law enters prime time Oct. 28 when it hosts a debate featur- ing the three candidates for Houston mayor. The event will be carried live by KTRK, Channel 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity for viewers to get an inside lode at South Texas. Let's do our part to make sure they come away with a good impression. A standing-room-only crowd in the Joe M. Green Jr. Auditorium would look great on television. Whether you are a fan of mud-slinging or not, the debate should be entertaining. And, no matter which of the candidates prevails next Monday, the real winner is South Texas. The exposure can only help to boost the college's reputation. Perhaps if viewers tire of listening to the candidates, they will at least remark about the well-appointed, spacious trappings of the auditorium. Just think of it as Family Feud or Wheel ofFortune, minus the prizes and Vanna and Pat. Letters to the Editor Dear Edi...

Octohar 1991 Annotations Page 3 With tight market, more grads go it alone by Steve Petrou The tight job market for lawyers has pro- duced an explosion of solo practitioners, many of whom are South Texas graduates. "It's really tough to get started," says Deborah Gallington, a 1989 South Texas graduate who has formed apartnership with a friend of hers. "I have many friends who have no choice butto go out on theirown," says Gallington. At South Texas, a class in law office management that used to attract 20 to 30 students has an enrollment of 90 students this semester. Professor Hanson Lawton says a student survey he conducted revealed that most students signed up because they want to set up their own practice. Gallington found herself suddenly with- out a job last year when the firm that employed her following her graduation "had money problems." Both Gallington and Ria McElvaney, a UH graduate with the defunct firm, had to scramble to restart their legal careers. Gallington said she...

Paw 4 áammim October 1991 Dean Wilks goes one-on-one with himself in interview by Dean William Wilks The staff of Annotations has graciously invited me to contribute an article. I have decided that I will simply interview myself with a question-and-answer format, asking the questions most frequently asked me by students, which perhaps are the questions that many of you would wish to ask. Q. Dean, what are we doing about security here at South Texas in view of the current crime wave in Houston? A. As strange as it seems, we are advised by the Houston Police that the downtown area is not even on the list ofthe top ten most dangerous areas in Houston. Nevertheless, we have made permanent the presence of the horse and uniformed rider, have beefed up the ABM outside security force, and have replaced the off-duty firemen on foot patrol with Houston police on bicycles. It is up to each of us to stay alert. Feel free to request escorts in the evening. Q. What are we doing about the parking ...

But, the law firm which sent the letter said it was all a big mistake. Hopkins was not only upset because he was not offered a summer clerkship, but was incensed when informed no one from South Texas is even being considered for a position with the firm. Here is the second paragraph of the letter: "The typical hiring channel this firm goes through for recruiting summer associates is the on-campus student/employer interview process. At this time Baker, Brown, Sharman & Parker recruits second-year law students at The University of Houston Law Center and The University of Texas School of Law campuses only." When Hopkins showed the letter to Assis- tant Dean T. Gerald Treece, Hopkins said Treece immediately picked up the phone to call a partner at the firm. Hopkins r...

A committee with representatives from all organizations worked with Lee to develop a set of criteria to use to assign offices. She then prepared a tentative list of office as- signments. The committee then made final changes to the list and voted to adopt it. "We wanted the decision to be as demo- cratic as possible," she said. ' 'This way, all of the groups involved had a say in the outcome." The criteria the committee used to allo- cate room assignments included activity level, membership, seniority of the organi- zation at STCL, and national affiliation.

ANNOTATIONS .Vol. XX No. 5 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law November 1991 Holidays hum with gift ideas by Andy Marker With the holiday season in full swing, now is the time to start thinking of what to get that special law student or faculty member. While most students probably would settle for a decent schedule and passing grades, those gifts depend upon divine interven- tion. So, here are a few suggestions to help make your shopping a little easier. Final exams are stressful for students and faculty alike. For students, there is the stress associated with trying to make sense of a semester's worth of notes, followed by 10 days of blue books and Pepto-Bismal. For professors, there is the less-than-appealing prospect of spending the holidays grading all those papers. To relieve the stress, there is the Shiatsu Massager from The Sharper Image. The ancient Japanese remedy for stress features 36 watts of tension-relieving power. Two Teflon-coated "massage nodes" knea...

On the plus side, students were treated to a new state-of-the-art lounge. Plus, expan- sion of the library is almost complete. Ad- vocacy teams from South Texas continued to bring back national honors. Heck, there are even building blocks on the patio. However, not all the news was good. Efforts to improve the college's reputation have yet to produce real results. STCL students faced the prospect of no job upon graduation as the economic downturn con- tinued to put a squeeze cm the legal job market. And, in perhaps the most disap- pointing episode of the foil, the Student Bar Association and administration locked horns in a bitter conflict over graduation. As we say good-bye to 1991, let's make an effort to improve die lines of communica- tion between students and administration. We can achieve great things if we work together. Go...

The debate also foreshadowed the conflict to come in the run-off race as Bob Lanier and Turner, the two top finishers, focused more attacks on each other and seemed to ignore Mayor Kathy Whitmire, the 10-year incumbent who was knocked out of the race a week later. In one confrontation during the debate, Lanier handed Turner a copy of a bill dealing with Metro and challenged him to find any limits on diverting funds from mass transit. "Ifyoufindany limits," said Lanier, 'Til pay for the rest of your campaign." The only time moderator Dave Ward asked the audience to control itself was after Lanier told Whitmire, "if you beat up on criminals as muchas you beat upon me...
