March 1994 Page 9 Sports Big Bend: A scenic escape is only one day away By STEVEN HUDGINS and SCOTT SMITH Annotations Sportswriters Perhaps one of the most unpolluted and scenic national parks is only a one-day car ride from Houston. That's right, I'm talking about Big Bend National Park. The park is approximately 600 miles from Houston, which makes for an easy, and, toward the end, beautiful road trip. The park is bordered by the Rio Grande River to the south, east and west, with the undulating plains of West Texas to the north. In the middle of the park are the Chisos Mountains, where the highest elevation is about 7,500 feet above sea level. The Chisos are the most fre- quented area of the park, with various hiking trails for begin- ning, intermediate and advanced hikers. Because the range has a high elevation, the trails offer a break from the otherwise hot desert areas surrounding the range during the spring, summer and fall months. The trails range from the relatively easy, ye...

CA 90401 Dear Professor Feinberg, I just received my bar examination results from the Colorado Board of Bar Examiners and learned that I scored 172 on the July, 1993 Multistate Bar Examination. As a result. I was AUTOMATICALLY ADMITTED IN COLORADO and my essays were not even graded! Although Colorado doesn't release percentile scores, I'm quite certain this is one of the HIGHEST "MBE" scores in the entire state. In preparation for the bar exam I took both BAR/BRI and PMBR. Although BAR/BRI was adequate for the Essay section, I relied exclu- sively on PMBR's Multistate materials for the "MBE". I found the PMBR Multistate questions to be outstanding and truly representative of the types of questions tested on the actual exam. In fact, I recognized at least 35 questions on the "MBE" that were similar to nuances covered by PMBR! There is ...

VOLUME XXII, NUMBER 6 SOUTH TEXAS APRIL 1994 COLLKGK OF LAW ANNOTATIONS Center shows students how to use ADR By URSULA WEIGOLD (Editor's note: After completing law school at the University of Texas, Professor Weigold worked as Chief Justice Evans'briefing attor- ney at the Houston [ 1st Dist.] Court of Appeals. She then served on the court's central legal staff for five years, first as a research attorney, then as senior staff attorney.) Many in the legal profession believe that the future of resolving disputes lies not so much in traditional litigation, and the lawyer as a "hired gun," as it does in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, and the lawyer as a problem-solver. The adversarial nature of the lawyer's role in society has also contributed to a break- down in civility and profes- sionalism among many law- yers. Although South Texas College of Law has provided its students with courses in alternative dispute resolution and mediation for several years, a new program...

Page 2 Letter from the Editors Dear Readers: As the year winds down, and as we find ourselves with a dearth of letters to print in this space, we, the editors, want to take a quick moment to reflect on this past year's Annotations. First, we want to thank the student organizations, most of whom made at least one contribution to the newspaper this year, and many of whom made several. The paper cannot represent the campus community as it should unless it has your support. Thanks also to the faculty and staff, who expressed great interest in the newspaper and who took time from their busy schedules to submit articles and letters to the editors. And, finally, we extend our thanks to the individual students - staff members and others - who wrote articles, took photos and gave suggestions to Annotations. We have enjoyed working with you this year and we look forward to another productive and entertaining term. The 1994-95 Annotations staff is: Ruth Piller, editor in chief; Jeri Wechsler, ...

April 1994 Page 3 Plain talk: It's been quite a year for the SBA By CLINT E. JONES SBA President My term is almost over. When this issue of Annotations is published, I will have less than a month before I hand over the reigns to my successor. And, just as those before me, I want to take this opportunity to reflect on the past year and to reveal my thoughts and concerns for South Texas. In addition, I need to thank certain individuals who are responsible for the successes experienced this year. Often going unnoticed, these individu- als are the ones who deserve the credit, for without their enthusi- asm and support, many things would not have changed. When I took office last summer, I had many ideas and plans for the upcoming year. While not all of these ideas were implemented, many were, thanks to my 11 officers, and I owe them a great deal of gratitude. So, I must say thanks to my vice-president, Bill Rustam, for all of his hard work in organiz- ing our Christmas ski trip and for d...

Page 4 April 1994 Sports It ain't Fantasy Island, but it's close enough By SCOTT SMITH and STEVEN HUDGINS Annotations Sportswriters About this time of the semester, many students are wishing they could get their heads out of that BarBri outline and just be on some deserted stretch of beach somewhere far away from law school, appellate briefs and the rest of civilized life as we know it. Perhaps some deserted island in the South Pacific or the Caribbean with palm trees, crystal clear water and pina coladas would be just the ticket to wipe away those pre-exam blues. As it turns out, this paradise is only a two and one-half hour drive from downtown Houston, along the Texas coast on Matagorda Island. Well, perhaps Matagorda Island doesn't offer palm trees or pina coladas, but the place is one of the most isolated and unspoiled places on the Texas coast. Matagorda Island offers a look at the Texas coast the way it used to be: before chemical plants, beachside housing developments and wee...

April 1994 Page 5 Wells continued from page 1 Wells said her fame, though fleeting, was fun. It began when she felt nature call after about the third song of a George Strait concert at the Summit. Faced with a long line in the women's bath- room, she used the men's facility. Emerging from the john, she was cited for violation of a city ordi- nance and thrown out of the con- cert. A few days later, her story appeared in the news, first locally, then nationally and, ultimately, internationally. "At first I was just kind of overwhelmed by the attention that it brought," she said. "I didn't try to make a case out of this. But when it turned out so many women wanted to talk about it (the lack of women's bathrooms in public facilities)... I was kind of in the forefront of this issue. I didn't mean to be there, but I didn't mind once I got there." Eventually, a municipal jury acquitted Wells of violating the city ordinance (using a restroom of the opposite sex in order to cause a disturban...

April 1994 Page 7 whowhatwhenwherewhywhowhatwhenwherewhywhowhatwhenwherewhy HILLEL The 12th annual Confer- ence of the National Jewish Law Student Association was held March 3-6 in San Francisco, Ca. A delegation of six South Texas College of Law students attended the conference: Laurel Agris, Felicia Cweren, Michelle Cweren, Miriam Hittner, Heather Horwitz and Melissa Jaffee. The theme of the conference was Modern Jews, Modern Concerns. The keynote speaker was the Hon. Stephen Reinhardt. Judge Reinhardt is a graduate of Yale Law School and was ap- pointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit by President Carter in September of 1980. Judge Reinhardt ad- dressed many legal issues which affect the Jewish community today. Another dynamic speaker, Rabbi Gary Greenebaum, cur- rently serves as president of the Los Angeles Police Commission. Rabbi Greenebaum spoke about his dual roles as a rabbi and a police commissioner. There were several panel discussions on topic...

Page 8 April 1994 New grade system may throw a few curves By JOHN J. WORLEY The faculty, particularly the Grades and Calendar Committee, would like to thank all the students who responded to the article in the October 1993 issue of Annotations, which announced a proposed change from the current numerical grading system to a letter-grading system. Student responses to the proposed change were predomi- nantly favorable. Since other Texas law schools now use letter grades, most respondents acknowledged that the numerical grading system at South Texas creates a competi- tive disadvantage for our students when interviewing with employers who also are considering graduates of other law schools. Prospective employers cannot readily compare South Texas student credentials with those of students from other schools without some explanation, and South Texas students have found it necessary to devote valuable interview time explaining the grading system rather than accentuating their job qualif...

April 1994 Grades continued from page 8 portion of the student's cumulative GPA will be tacked on to that counterpart. For example, a cumulative GPA of 77.543 would be converted to a 2.7543. The faculty recognized that this tack- ing of the decimal portion of existing GPAs to the converted GPA is artificial, but its principal virtue is that all class rankings will be undisturbed. We believe fundamental fairness dictates that no class rank dislocations take place as a result of the conversion, and this conversion method as- sures that result. Moreover, whatever benefits there may be in the current numerical grading system will not be lost in the converted grades: If Student A received a 79 in Property I and Student B received a 77 in the same course, the cumulative grade-point advantage of that 2- point superiority will be reflected in that converted GPA. Another concern is that the transcript with some grades on a 55-95 scale, others on the new letter-grade scale and a converted GPA...

The Center for Legal Responsibility opened its doors early this semester on the eighth floor of the tower and is headed by the Hon. Frank G. Evans, retired chief justice of the Houston [1st Dist.] Court of Appeals. Judge Evans pioneered the use of alternative dispute resolution in Texas during his long tenure on the appellate bench, and later left the court to establish the Texas branch of Judicial Arbitration & Mediation Services, Inc. Although its mission includes community outreach programs and serving as a nation- wide model for conflict resolution training, the Center's primary mission is to augment the legal education of students at STCL. The Center's programs will focus on ways in which law students can be trained to be not only excellent lawyers, but also skilled conflict managers and professi...

Volume XXm. Number 1 SOUTH TEXAS August 1994 COLLEGE OF LAW ANNOTATIONS Does free speech give the press the freedom to mislead? By MANNY CAIATI There is a relation- ship between a family court and the people of the surrounding community. This is a relation- ship born of the constitution of the state. In Texas, this relation- ship has existed, in much the same fashion, for almost 200 years. Within this relation- ship, the court serves the people's need for domestic order, tranquility, and the resolution of family problems. The people, on the other hand, must recognize the authority of the court and respect its judg- ment. To adequately serve the people, the court must respond to legitimate public concerns. This is most com- monly done on an individual basis, through the advocacy skills of the attorneys. It is also accomplished, on a larger scale, when the court follows public policy instituted by the legisla- ture. To adequately serve the court, participants must obey court orders an...

August 1994 A note from the dean Houston's heat has met its match; STCL's dean looks to the cool year ahead in 1994-95 By WILLIAM L. WILKS Welcome to all the new arrivals, and welcome home to the 2Ls and 3Ls. Summer at South Texas was busy, as we did some major housekeeping and prepared for a great new class to enter in the fall, all while summer students were going back and forth from the hot outside Houston to the cool inside the law school. The dean and the Institu- tional Advancement Office were extremely busy pounding the pavement to raise money for the construction of our beautiful, new $25 million library. The capital campaign will be launched at the end of 1994, but we have been quietly at work contacting key persons and foundations so that we can be halfway toward our goal when the campaign is an- nounced. Already, we have ac- quired the $5 million lead gift and, by the time you read this, I hope that we will have reached the $10-million level in pledges. The Department of ...
