November 1991 Annotations Paas_5. SABBATICALS, from page 1 mit a request to the Dean. The request must include a description of the project the faculty member would like to work on. Wilks forwards the request to Associate Dean Sandra DeGraw, who checks to as- sure there will be no disruption of the course schedule. "Most of our faculty, with very few ex- ceptions, have come up with very worth- while projects," Wilks said. For example, Professor Randall Kelso will use his sab- batical to finish an article tentatively titled ' Trends on the Supreme Court: Formalist, Holmesian, and Natural Law Approaches among the Conservative Supreme Court Majority." He also plans to write another article dealing with methods of statutory interpretation used by the Court today. Kelso's article, titled "Filling Gaps in the Supreme Court's Approach to Constitu- tional Review of Legislation: Standards, Ends, and Burdens Reconsidered," will be published in the South Texas Law Review in the spring. The cha...

Paoe 6 Annotations Usuaaíiai 1991 Student Bar Association finds year full of surprises by Susan Durr This has been a busy semester for the SBA and for me. We have tried our best to represent the student body by planning activities and by acting as advocates for student concerns. The board of governors met earlier this year to make plans and set our goals. For the most part, we have done what we set out to do. We have also met with several surprises. One of our goals was to try to be more efficient in ordering and distributing the Dean's List certificates. When we took office, we met with Surprise # 1: last year's senior senators had taken applications and checks for Dean's List certificates last spring, but they had never taken them to the registrar for verification, and had never sent them in. Chris Bell and Melody Tezino spent a great deal of time trying to get all of the old certificates ordered and distributed before we ordered certificates this fell. Another goal was to avoid t...

November 1981 Annotations £aas_L cally together making the arrangements, and trying our best to publicize the event so we wouldn't be embarrassed by only 3 students showing up. 1 was astonished to walk into the auditorium with Jerrie, Dean Wilks and the debators to find an overflow crowd. I could not imagine hosting another debate that could be that successful, but I would like to try another one in the spring. I am not sure if Surprise #7 was pleasant or not. My feelings are mixed. I explained to Dean Wilks that I would like to be able to address the faculty during their monthly meetings and give them the student per- spective on policies and procedures at South Texas. My first appearance was at the Sep- tember faculty meeting. 1 had two major goals at that meeting: 1. To persuade the faculty to grant a posthumous degree to Joscelyn Wilder, a former classmate of mine who was killed in an automobile accident after our first year, and 2. To get the no-audit rule changed, so that stud...

mmm Paae 8 damaim November 1991 REGISTER, from page I "Once we open the doors at 9, there was not this taking two hours to drop your form s off. And, I think, that last semester really was unfortunate, and I can't apologize enough." The result is while students still spend hours waiting just to get into the Registrar's office, once inside their stay is a short one. Pilkenton said student response to the changes has been positive. "The feedback I've got from the students so fiar I think has been favorable," she said. "Some of them have actually stopped by and said it (regis- tration) was nice." Pilkenton credited the students also with helping to cut down the discomfort of the process. She said students are doing abetter job of checking the problem lists posted by the Registrar. Previously, students received a courtesy call from Pilkenton's office if there was a problem. "Unfortunately, what happened then was if we couldn't get ahold of someone and there was no way to leave, then it ...

^VqL XX No. 6 ANNOTATIONS Xhe Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law Improved image tops STCL '92 wish list January 1992 J by Andy Marker With library expansion completed and the finishing touches having been applied to the renovation of the student center, South Texas College of Law is ready to enter 1992 with a renewed commitment to improving the college's image in the legal community. Last year was abusy one for South Texas. The frenzied pace of construction kept stu- dents dodging scaffolds and work crews for much of the year. The $1.5 million renova- tion project added much needed space to the library and breathed new life into a quickly aging student lounge. But, with all that work done, the question is where does South Texas go now? "We really have a big drive now on image. We started that last year, and we're really working hard on that," said Dean William Wilks. "I'm calling on law firms again, ones that we have not hit before, just to educate them. We've now done ...

Page I Annotations J?nv?rY 1992 Editorial Something came across my desk the other day that served to remind me why I decided to go to law school. It was a flier about a fund-raiser sponsored by the Houston Hu- mane Society. Nothing out of the ordinary really, just another owner/pet fun run. But, something unusual caught my attention. It was the waiver of liability attached to the entry form. Not only were owners asked to sign away any rights they might have with regard to liability by the sponsor, but their pets were asked to do so also. Pets? Well, that raised an issue I had never thought about before - the legal rights of domestic animals. I asked my two basset hounds if they were represented by counsel. They gave me a mournful look, which I tookasa'no.' I offered my services, but my girls graciously declined and asked if I knew how to get in touch with 'Racehorse* Haynes. They liked his name and thought he might be better able to understand the concerns of animals. Do pets really...

T January 1992 Annotations Paas_l Businessman Edgar Smith named to chair STCL board of trustees For the first time in South Texas his- tory, a non-lawyer has been elected chair- man of the law school's board of trustees. Edgar Smith, a Houston businessman, was picked by the board to be the new chairman. "We can use his business advice in run- ning this law school," said Dean William Wilks. Smith owns a barge company and holds a 27 percent interest in the Dallas Cowboys, according to Wilks. "He's a philanthropist, a nice guy and a great fund-raiser," said Wilks. Wilks said no one objected to Smith's lack of a law degree when he was nomi- nated to serve as chairman. "We have enough lawyers on the board," said Wilks. Former Chairman Elliott A. Johnson will continue to serve as a board member. Also elected to the board at last month's meeting were Don D. Jordan and Larry L. Shryock. Jordan is chairman and chief ex- ecutive officer ofHouston Lighting & Power Co., as well as chairman,...

Paoe 4 Annotations January 1992 Student Bar Association starts '92 with clean slate by Susan Durr This is a new semester, and a chance for a fresh start. Accordingly, I would like to clear a few things up before we get involved in all of the spring activities that the SBA has planned. 1. Some people expressed concern that my comments published in A nnotations are one-sided. They certainly are, and if you are looking for objective, quality journalism, you should concentrate on the articles pre- pared by the Annotations staff. I have never taken a journalism class in my life, and merely contribute ideas and comments like this from time to time that the editors are gracious enough to publish. 2. As to the posthumous degree issue, the faculty asked me to inform everyone that they did vote to honor Joscelyn Wilder with a moment of silence at graduation. Later at the same faculty meeting, they voted to award an honorary degree to Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, the December graduation speaker. Logica...

January 1392 Annotations Pane 5 CDO serves up brown bag lunch menu by Peggy Former Director, Career Development Office "Choices," "options," "career paths," "flexibility," "research" - these are some of the buzzwords used in legal recruiting and the development of an effective job search strategy. These are choices to be made, options to select, career paths to follow, practice areas to focus on or to discard and research which must be started before a single resume can be mailed or interview planned. Toassist students through this maze, this semester's theme for the Career Development Office-sponsored brown bag lunches is "Different Areas of Law Practice." The programs have been planned to help all law students, from first to last semester, learn a little more about everything from environmental law to in- surance law; work as an attorney with the State Security Board to career paths for graduates interested in law librarianship.

iT ILVol. XX No. 7 ANNOTATIONS Jhe Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law South Texas is venue for major trial by Steve Petrou STCL's largest auditorium has turned into a giant courtroom that is the setting for a trial with $100 million in damages at stake. "This is not moot court or mock trial," said plaintiffs attorney Pat Maloney Jr. of San Antonio. "It's the real world and any law student who walks in here can see it." The products liability trial, Grace Wessel, et al. v. The Dow Chemical Company, pits workers from New Mexico against the giant chemical manufacturer. Thirteen workers and five spouses allege they have suffered permanent injuries from a toxic chemical manufactured by Dow at its plant in Freeport, Texas. The trial originally was scheduled to be held in the Harris County courtroom of IS 1st District Judge Carolyn Clause Garcia.

Pace 2 Annotations February 1992 Editorial Despite the am val of the new year, South Texas continues to be plagued by some of the same old problems. The failure to settle on a reasonable attendance policy has frus- trated both faculty and students. No one seems toknow just what the college's policy is, much less how to enforce it. Aside from the troubles inside the classroom, there's another fire smoldering in the hallways. The battle between smokers and non-smok- ers is threatening to ignite unless the admin- istration takes decisive action. Last spring, the faculty voted to abandon the old method of taking attendance. Gone were the attendance sheets distributed by the Registrar's office. The decision meant students no longer would have to fight to sign in; instead, teachers could concentrate on teaching, and students could concentrate on learning. It was thought highly educated people (both faculty and students) could arrive at a dignified means of taking atten- dance without disr...

Ffthrnarv 1992 Annotations ±232-2. Salcines fuels Florida-South Texas student pipeline by Jennifer James Why would a law school "deep in the heart of Texas" have a Florida Law Stu- dents Association? Could the answer lie in the fact that 5 percent of all South Texas alumni are from Florida? According to a recent report in The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune, more than 430 South Texas alumni are licensed to practice law in Florida, including five judges in the 13th Judicial Circuit. Largely responsible for the Florida-South Texas pipeline is E.J. Salcines, a 1963 South Texas graduate and former Hillsborough state attorney and as- sistant U.S. attorney. Salcines served on the South Texas board of directors from 1975-89, and since has been a member of the STCL board of visitors, made up of business and civic leaders who advise Dean William Wilks. Further, he is a trustee emeritus, president for life of the Florida Alumni Association, and credited with referring at least 300 students to South Texa...

Paoe 4 AngsMm Fgfrruary 1992 Police caution students 'Let's be careful out there' by Sandra Hollingsworth The increase in violent crime has made an impact on every Houston resident. TV and newspapers report the daily body count along with their stories of the various rob- beries, muggings and shootings that have become commonplace. With the murder of a Harris County deputy near Greenspoint Mall a few months ago, it would appear that anyone can become a victim. Every day when we leave our homes, we take a risk of becoming the next victim. Criminals have become dauntless and down- right brazen in their actions, committing crimes in broad daylight and shooting vic- tims without provocation. There is little to deter criminals now because they know, even if they get caught, it won't be long until they are back on the streets. Sergeant Johnnie Stein, of Harris County Constable Precinct 1, knows how bad things are out on the streets. He's out there with the criminals everyday, he says you ...

With that as a premise, and a vested interest in learning what constitutes a successful job search, recent graduates were questioned about how they found their job, which methods were die most successful, how long they devoted to the job search, etc. Each year,as required by the American Bar Association, we survey the most recent graduating class to ascertain employment status (which in- cludes die type of employer and geographic location) and salary information. Our data is sent confidentially and anonymously to the National Association for Law Place- ment (NALP), where it becomes part of a national repot.

As he made his way along Memorial, Haas was followed by three police cars and a long line of angry motorists. Memorial had been closed for the first four hours of the race. But, Haas, who was battling a stomach bug, turned onto Memorial a little behind sched- ule. Needless to say, he could have done without the special attention. Haas was one of a handful of South Texas students who took part in the Jan. 26 endur- ance test. Other STCL students who com- pleted the marathon included Susan Jahn, Marylyn McNaughton, Hance Myers and Allison Spruill. The 26.2-mile race, which began and finished at the nearby George R. Brown Convention Center, attracted more than 6,000 runners. Haas finished the race in just over five hours. He started training right after finals in December. This was his first marathon.
