April 1993 ANNOTATIONS Page 5 AIDS Clinic at STCL by Ruth Pi tier If all goes as planned, South Texas College of Law students who seek to enroll in a clinic next fall will have one more choice. Plans are underway to develop an AIDS clinic with the Houston Bar Association's Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program, officials said. The program, which would be STCL's fourth in-house clinic, would pair STCL students with attorneys involved in the Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program's AIDS project, said Professor Cathy Burnett, coordinator of STCL's clinical studies programs. The students will have a classroom component as well as direct contact with clients, she said. "I've been interested for a long time in doing something for HIV-infected people, because that seemed an underrepresented group," Burnett said. The clinic has been approved by STCL's board of directors, and the faculty have approved the clinic in principle, along with plans to move forward. When details are ironed out, the program ...

Pa°e 6 ANNOTATIONS Aoril 1993 By Professor Bruce W. Burton Charms and magic do exist in law school. There are a few tiny but miraculous toeholds and handholds that can allow a law student, or a practicing lawyer, to better climb their respective mountains. Following the "faculty perspective" precedent set by my distinguished colleague Professor Mitten in the February 1992 issue of Annota- tions (and with his encouragement), this column discusses three things that usually pay off well in the world of law students and lawyers. The story is one that dates back nearly 30 years to my own first days in law school during the mid-1960s. It was then that I was initiated into the mysteries of what we came to call the "3 Ws": WHAT, WHITHER and WHY? This introduction to the "3 Ws" came during a very special first-semester course at my alma mater, the University of Minnesota Law School. Running scared and haunted by the lL's usual array of dark visions (failure in law school, humiliation, financ...

April 1893 ANNOTATIONS Page 7 Final Words From Rob by Robert S. Clark, S.B.A. President As graduation fast approaches, I have had the time to reflect upon the past year and both the successes and failures of the Student Bar Association. We have accomplished a good bit, especially in light of where we started, but I think that we still have a lot of room for improve- ment. The newly elected officers should re-evaluate the role and the purpose of the S.B.A., and should make the neces- sary adjustments to become a more effective organization. The primary purpose of the Student Bar Association is to assist all of the students at South Texas to achieve their ultimate goal of obtaining a law degree. In addition, we also have a responsibility to contribute something back to both our community and the legal profession. Our law school has changed quite drastically over the past few years, and quite simply, the S.B.A. has not been able to keep up. For starters, many of the functions which the...

Pa°e 8 ANNOTATIONS April 1993 Sample First Year Law School Exam Erik's new wife Sheila reels in a Barracuda while the couple was honeymooning in Belize over Spring Break. Sportsperson's Corner by Erik Wollam Weather, bad weather, is the scourge of spring. So often I hear that April is "the Month" for things to "turn on" in the Galveston Bay system. With visions of a full stringer, I continually attempt to go fishing and am habitually denied by wind and rain. Perhaps those that feel spring is such a great time for fishing are suffering from winter delusions of catching nothing. In an attempt to one up the weather gods, my wife and I went south for Spring Break. Belize, hot spot for tarpon and bone fish. Our plans were thwarted. The killer storms of March followed us to the Cayes south of the Yucatan and sent the Belizians scrambling for warm ups and hot cocoa. The front did eventually blow itself out and Sheila and I managed to get a good burn, drink rum and do some fishing. No tarpo...

Anril 1893 ANNOTATIONS Page¿. From Books To Bosnia Ask SWAM I By S. M. FitzPatrick By Kristi Boy lan Dean Triantafilou, former STCL student, is trading in his law books for a ticket to Bosnia. As part of a private relief effort to provide food and supplies to war-torn households in Bosnia- Hercegovina, he will be responsible for organizing food convoys from Belgrade, Serbia into Bosnia. Fortunately for Dean, he'll be head- quartered in the relative safety of Belgrade. While he is there, he will meet with food suppliers to determine which types of food will be available for the He'll also be in charge of verifying the delivery and disbursement of the sup- plies. What this means for Dean is that he will have to take tours of the "front lines" by actually riding with some of the convoys. This could be extremely dangerous considering that the first convoy never made it to Bosnia because it was blown up on its way to Sarajevo. Approximately 5-15 trucks are included in a convoy. Each truc...

STCL received a score of 155 out of 176, 176 being the worst. This ranks STCL academically equivalent to the Catholic University of Puerto Rico and Cumberland Samford University. Because of some ties in this category, the U.S. News survey says that STCL is academically superior to only eleven of the 176 ABA accredited law schools in the survey. CATEGORY 2 - Reputation Rank bv Lawyers and Judges also makes up 20% of the total score. This category was determined by surveying pver 3000 practicing lawyers, hiring partners, and senior judges and having them list the top twenty schools based on their appraisals of the work of recent gradu- ates. Admittedly, we are not in the top twenty, but we sure as hell are not in the bottom forty-four. STCL scored another 155 in this category out of the 176 schools in the survey ...

Team mem- bers Shannon FitzPatrick and Elyssa Schnurr defeated teams from Texas, Texas Tech, and Texas Wesleyan to win the title. Competition coaches were Professor Lawton and Brett Shine. The South Texas victory marks the school's second consecutive champion- ship in the new tournament. The mediation competition was developed by South Texas Professor Kimberlee Kovach and debuted as a state level competition last year. "Texas continues to lead a nation-wide trend toward mediation. As more states adopt this form of dispute resolution, law schools should become better equipped to train students in mediation advocacy," Kovach said.

The six-member Legislative Study Delegation of the Bureau of Legislative Affairs of the State Council of the People's Republic of China included Li Pei-Chuan, deputy director general of the Bureau of Legislative Affairs.

Pa<as 2 Annotations JULY 1993 Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: I wanted to take a minute to share my recent experience with the intramural mock trial competi- tion with some other people who may feel that mock trial is some- thing that they don't have time for or won't need because they're going to become "corporate" attorneys and aspire to never see the inside of a courtroom. I was hesitant to participate since summer goes by so quickly and I hadn't had Evidence yet, but I'm glad I did. I found out that there are very few things more exhilarating than hearing a judge say, "Sustained." (Even when your objection clearly shows that you haven't had Evidence.) What I learned: 1. You don't have to have had evidence, but you can definitely see how it would help. I was lucky; my partner was an evidentiary whiz. 2. You're nervous before the trial starts, but once it begins, you get so wrapped up in listening to what the witnesses and opposing coun- sel are saying - so you can nail them...

Well, we are working on a number of alternatives. The first option would be to have a cable line run to the school. But, if this is too expensive, we may attempt to have a satellite put in. Our last proposal would be to buy a VCR and have taped shows, such as the morning CNN telecast or sporting events.and possibly taped movies. As soon as we have reached a decision on this, though, we will let you know.

This past spring, the Committee on Character and Fitness noted a discrepancy between the Application and Declaration in answers given by two of our students. In both instances, on the Application for Admis- sion the students answered "No" to the question, "Have you ever been arrested, charged, indicted or convicted or have you received deferred adjudi- cation or probation on any felony or misdemeanor (except minor traffic offenses)?". However, on the Declaration, which included a specific reference to drug or alcohol related charges, the stu- dents described such a charge or charges.

VOLUME XXII, NUMBER 2 FORUM: FOREIGN INTERVENTION page 3 SOUTH TEXAS OCTOBER 1993 COLLEGE OF LAW BOA UPDATE: CONTESTS & MORE page 6 ANNOTATIONS STCL makes the grade By SUSAN W. CRUMP Chair, Faculty Grades and Calendar Committee For the past several years, students, the administration and the faculty of South Texas have been concerned with a trend at law schools to change from numerical grading to letter grading. South Texas is one of the only schools in Texas which has retained a number grading system. This puts South Texas students at a distinct disad- vantage in seeking employment. For one thing, employers are innundated with applicants, most of whom have grades and grade point averages based upon letter grades. It is difficult for an em- ployer to compare a South Texas graduate with an 76 average with a graduate of the University of Houston with a C+ average, for example, and know if those averages are equiva- lent. This lack of grading parity requires that our graduates spen...

October 1993 Page 3 Forum: Foreign intervention - problem or solution? By RICHARD GRAVING One of Henry Kissinger's more colorful one-liners is to the effect that disputes in academia are so bitter because so little is at stake. The test of that aphorism may depend on how ne charac- terizes the exertions of the World Court at The Hague, officially the International Court of Justice. Ronald Reagan thought they were academic, and defied the court by first illegally withdrawing from the proceedings in Nicaragua v. U.S. and then ignoring its 1986 default judgment against the United States on the merits. It was a case the United States might have been able to win. But its litigation strategy of cut-and-run was, in effect, a wager whose terms were heads-you-win, tails-I- lose. And what of the stakes? Were they indeed "little"? Article 94(2) of the UN Charter provides that winners of World Court cases may petition the Security Council for enforce- ment. Of course, when Nicaragua did this, t...

Page 4 October 1993 SPORTS Dove season unearths hunters, environmental lessons about waterfowl By STEVEN HUDGINS and SCOTT SMITH Annotations Sports writers Sept. 1 was opening day of north and central zone dove season in Texas, and your two sportswrit- ers were there for it. After correct- ing our aim, which had grown rusty from the off season, we managed to make a good day of it and still make it back in time for class. The rice fields around Katy are generally some of the most pro- ductive areas in this part of the state for early-season hunting, and this year is no exception. We were able to hunt the Katy farmland courtesy of Larry Gore, owner and operator of Katy Prairie Outfitters. Larry's specialty is normally guiding first- class duck and goose hunts in the area, but he also uses his acreage for top-quality dove hunting as well. After an early morning breakfast buffet, one of Larry's guides, Mark Stephens, drove us out to the area we were to hunt. We stopped at the edge of a ...
