Be sure to VOTE on Nov. 3rd. SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW Student/Faculty picnic - Oct. 17th. ANNOTATIONS Volume XXI Number 2 The S tudent Newspaper oe South Texas College of Law October 1992 An Advocate for Humanity by Camille Whitworth When Karen Zellars graduated from South Texas College of Law in August of 1982, she assumed she would go back to work for the insurance company where she had served as treasurer and later as director for seven years. Her participa- tion in the advocacy program led her astray. After being hired for a position with the Harris County District Attorney's Office, she discovered that she had been the only one out of the poól of twenty applicants who was not yet licensed. Zellars, who won the Garland Walker Mock Trial Competition, believes that her experience in various mock trial and moot court competitions is what gave her the edge. Today, Zellars has a busy private practice and is known for her work defending battered women and rehabili- tating clients wi...

Pa°e 2 ANNOTATIONS October 1992 A Word From The Dean Dean W. L Wilks At the outset let me remind all South Texas students of opportunities of which they are taking little advantage. First, Dean Dennis maintains a marvelous collection of announcements of a wide variety of national writing competitions. It is my understanding that there are relatively few entrants competin g nationally for the sometimes substantial cash prizes that are awarded for top essays. South Texas wins all advocacy competitions and there is no reason why we should not be bringing home all the essay prizes as well. Second, all of us are missing a great chance to see some fine lawyering (and some of the other kind) in the First and Fourteenth Courts of Appeals which occupy the top three floors of our building. An argument schedule is regularly posted, and both Courts welcome student observers. Several jury trials held in Joe Green Auditorium this pas t year have also been attended by only a few of us. We are not ...

October 1992 ANNOTATIONS Page ? BOA kicks off Fall by David Wilson Almost 200 students crowded Garrett- Townes auditorium on September 2 for the first Board of Advocates meeting of the 1992-1993 academic year. The BOA members were treated to a rousing presentation by Harris County Criminal District Judge Ted Poe.

Paoe 4 ANNOTATIONS October 1992 An Advocate for Humanity Continued from page 1 defending battered women," she says, "is at least you know you're on the right side." According to Zellars, the hardest thing to do is to get the jury to understand why the defendant didn't just leave the man. Battered women suffer from a condition called "learned helplessness." Their abusers diminish their self-esteem by exercising complete control over their lives. "A lot of these women aren't allowed outside the home," says Zellars. "The husband of one of my clients was so controlling, she wasn't allowed to go outside to check the mail, she couldn't go to the grocery store, he wouldn't even let her wear shoes.'' He was an obsessive- compulsive who would return home several times a day to check the TV to see if it was warm and to make sure the telephone cord was twisted in the way he'd left it. He even drew a circle on the lawn outside and designated it as the only place where she was allowed to brush h...

Paoe 6 ANNOTATIONS October 1992 ☆☆☆ CLINTON "ft ft ft ft Jr Jr ¿y ATmf/ Boylan & Jerel Twyman During the 1980's, our govern- ment betrayed the values that make America great: providing opportunity, taking responsibility, and rewarding work. While the rich got richer, the forgotten middle class took it on the chin. They paid higher taxes to a government that gave them little in return. The Republican Administration failed to put people first. Given the Republicans' short term "solutions" to long-term problems, it's not surprising to see why our nation is suffering. This article will focus on three main weak- nesses of the past 12 Republican years: the economy, the American family, and health care. THE ECONOMY - When it comes to the economy, the record speaks for itself. For twelve years, the driving idea behind US economic policy has been cutting taxes on the nation's richest individuals and corporations, and hoping that their new wealth would "trickle down" to the rest of us. No...

Qntoher 1992 ANNOTATIONS Page 7 ☆☆☆ BUSH ☆☆☆ )< is )i By Tucker Graves When George Bush took office in 1989, I had high hopes for the man. Only Lori Massey had a better resume. Less than four years later, Bush is in the political fight of his life and I am forced to cast my vote in 1992 for a man I admit has fallen far short of my expectations. But despite his short-comings, Bush is still the better choice as compared to the Southern Fried Socialism ticket of Clinton-Gore. The issue that has been Bush's Achilles Heel is the economy. But is the economy really that bad? With interest and inflation rates at a 20 year low, certain sectors of the economy are prospering . What about unemployment? For the last year, the unemployment rate has been hovering around seven percent. Most economists state that even in an ideal economy, five percent of the population would still be unemployed. Granted, if you are part of the two percent actively seeking work, times may be tough. But at least th...

I don't think that horror show had too much of an effect on me. I'm still By Anne Elk Last week, a well-meaning friend took me on what he described as "an educa- tional field trip." After several hours journey, we arrived at a complex of small cottages set amidst the East Texas pines. The sign at the gate proclaimed this mini-village to be the "William Jennings Bryan Home for the Formerly Sane." I realized that he had brought me to a sanatorium for lawyers. My "friend" (I'll call him Montresor) explained that there were a few people he wanted me to meet. We walked across a clearing and saw a young man mumbling to several small juniper bushes. "That's an interesting case," Montresor said. '' He was plaintiff s counsel on a slip and fall. Everything was fine. They even had the grape as evidence. Then he found out that the entire jury pool was made ...

Ortnher 1 93? ANNOTATIONS Paoa 11 Campus Security by Julie Templin On September 1st, South Texas College of Law published its first campus security report as required under the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act, a new federal law. The act requires all schools re- ceiving federal aid to publish an annual security report. Gregory Brothers, Chief Finan- cial and Administrative Officer at South Texas College of Law, said the report demonstrates the commitment Dean Wilks, the administration, and the safety committee have to the school community. The Houston Police Depart- ment is the source of the statistics in the report, Brothers said. The report includes statistics from 1989-1991. The statistics represent the number of crimes reported that occurred on the South Texas campus. The campus includes the main facility (1303 San Jacinto), the Disability Clinic (1602 San Jacinto), the parking lot used by the faculty, and the three parking lots used by the students and the public (...

Paoe 2 ANNOTATIONS November 199? A Word From The Dean Dean W. L. Wilks The job description of a law school dean, particularly the dean of an indepen- dent law school, includes a big section on fundraising. As most of you know, capital expenditures at South Texas are not made from tuition dollars. Any improvements of the physical plant, funds to support the advocacy competi- tions and any purchase of major items of equipment must be funded from dollars raised by the Dean and the Institutional Advancement staff from alums, corpora- tions, foundations and other friends of South Texas. Alumni/ae support of South Texas has doubled in the number of participants just in the last year, and as the legal commu- nity and other communities know more about us, fundraising has become much easier for the Dean. Occasionally we are blessed with donations for which we have made no requests. The art (some of which comports with my taste and some of which does not) which appears quarterly in the studen...

Page 4 ANNOTATIONS November 1992 How Houston Margaritas Measure Up r by Teresa Byrne-Dodge Reprinted courtesy of Houston Metropolitan Magazine r nyone who's lived in Houston for five minutes knows this is no Perrier-with-lime kind of town. We drink margaritas, darlin', and lots of them. Tart or sweet, thick with lime pulp or clear as spring water, personal tastes vary greatly. There is one thing most agree on, however. We don't like weak drinks, weak men or weak women. So when we got a letter complaining about the less-than-zero octane in the margaritas at one of the city's better-known Mexican restaurants, we were compelled to investigate. Here's how it worked: Using plastic screw-top specimen bottles, we collected margaritas from 21 Mexican restaurants known for their drinks. We ordered the real thing: two margaritas on the rocks, with salt. Because the margarita is a beautiful thing in its simplicity, harking back to the tequila shot cut with a suck of lime and a lick of salt, we...

Pa°e 8 ANNOTATIONS November 1992 Legalies By Anne Elk As law students, we sometimes forget how out of touch with reality we are. Just the other day, a disheveled gentle- man asked me if I wanted to smoke some crack. I immediately launched into a lengthy (albeit well-organized) diatribe on why cannibalism is immoral and unhealthy. It was only later that I realized that he must have been offering to exterminate my apartment. That reminds me of the Rhodes Scholar I met at Oxford. He was from Arkansas, too. He tried to woo me with Bailey's Irish Cream. (Another non sequitur, but who's counting?) Sometimes things jerk us back to reality with a blow like an LAPD baton. I was in a bar, discussing manicures and Planned Parenthood v. Casey with a friend when a handsome young man approached me. After about 30 seconds of innocuous conversation, he asked the inevitable question: "What do you do?" I didn't dissemble or waffle, I held up my head proudly and answered that I was a law student. He g...
