Vol. XX No. 8 ANNOTATIONS The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law March 1992 What it thev gays, a/i election and nobody osmeZ SBA races draw few takers by Pamela Hilsher South Texas students will have fewer candidates to choose from in this year's Student Bar Association elections. Accord- ing to SBA Election Commissioner Monica Stepchinski, only 11 names will appear on the ballot for the nine different SBA of- fices, leaving the only contested race that for SBA president. Thirty-three candidates were on the bal- lot last spring, but only 17 have signed up this year. And, that figure was reduced to 11 after six of the candidates were dropped for failure to attend a mandatory meeting on Monday, (see related story on page 3) "We are not sure why so few have an- nounced candidacy," Stepchinski said. "People are either apathetic or due to the job market, everyone is focusing on grades and they do not have time for outside activi- ties." Stepchinski said the SBA is not con- c...

Paga 2 Amuügúsm March 1992 Letter to the Editor Dear Editor BLSA's "Have a Heart" program was very successful. BLSA would like to thank all the people who contributed items and money. Special thanks goes out to Profes- sor Jenkins and Professor Burton, the His- panic Law Students Association, Grisby's Snack Bar and the school bookstore. The drive was a successful event for BLS A. The items which were donated and bought with the money collected made Valentine's Day a little brighter for SO residents at the Herman Park Manor Conva- lescent Home.

March 1932 Annotations Pages, Successful job search not complete without 'tools of the trade' by Peggy Fortner Director, Career Development Office "Tools of the trade." A phrase that is as important to the job-seeker as the proper implements are necessary for a skilled craftsperson. Last month's column dis- cussed a survey which was sent to recent graduates, in which they were asked to identify, among other questions, the "tools" which were the most beneficial in their job search. Many of the responses, rather than a simple 1-2-3, were narrative, and I'll attempt to group these responses so that they are more easily understood. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, networking was the tool or method most often reported as being instrumental in securing employment. Included in this response was contact with former employ- ers, personal contacts and re-establishing ties with attorneys known priortolawschool. Networking can be as simple as shaking the hand of a CLE or Brown Bag ...

March 1332 damaúm ppq«? 11 Controversial talk-show host Matthews brings message to STCL by Lee King "We've got too many lawyers and not enough good teachers," Jon Matthews told a small, but very interested group of stu- dents and faculty March 5. The controver- sial radio talk show host, whose show airs weekdays on KPRC- AM950, was the latest guest of the Benjamin Franklin Society here at South Texas. "The United States has 750,000 law- yers,' ' he said. *4 And, that's just too many! A professor at the University of Texas has published a study that shows that each lawyer costs our economy $1 million a year. We could give each one half a million dollars a year to do nothing, and still be better off." Matthews said the 15,000 lawyers in Harris County were responsible for the clogged civil courts system. "And, it's a real problem when we have people writing laws that the average man can't understand," he said. "Lawyers should be barred from serving in the legislature. It's adirect conf...

2 September 1992 ANNOTATIONS Letters to the editor Computer-posted grades I cant wait. What, you may ask, can I not wait for? Well, imagine, if you will, the image of 500+ eager law students awaiting their turn in line to view their grades on the registrars new computer system and termi- nals. The numbers will be greater than the number of students who wait in line to register each semester. As it now stands, in order to assure yourself getting into an externship or whatever, you must begin your wait early in the morning, hours before the registrars office is even open. Now, the same image is to be seen when grades are released. However, you must wait in line just to find out what great or lousy grade you received in a class you have already waited hours in line just to get into. I'm not writing this letter because I have this new fangled solution to an old problem. My question is — what was wrong with the old system? Sure, some people may get their toes stepped on in the mad rush t...
