Page 6 August 1994 Stephanie's baby monumental proportions for this barely pregnant woman. It was amazing that such a small being could be causing such havoc. 1 found comfort in the fact that morning sickness generally disappears after the first trimes- ter. I patiently counted the days and was very disappointed to learn that I was one who would have no such relief. (I had fallen into the category that has even been given a scientific name which I could never pronounce nor remember.) After five and a half months of illness, I was able to reclaim my body just in time to observe first-hand its systematic expansion, I was finally able to enjoy the other elements of pregnancy, like being fussed over, attending showers, decorat- ing the baby's room, etc. I felt entitled to this time after having had to withdraw from law school for a semester, having had to observe a Jamaican vacation from my bedroom (as well as a mountain trip) and having had to decline numerous other events. Despite my ...

August 1994 Getting to know them: Meet STCL Professors Powers and R. Carlson By KATHLEEN CARNEY Annotations Assistant Business Manager (Editor's note: This story is the first in a series of monthly profiles of STCL professors.) Richard Carlson Interested in employment or labor law? Professor Richard Carl- son teaches a variety of courses re- lated to the employment and labor field, including Employment Dis- crimination, Labor Law and Em- ployee Rights and Responsibilities. In addition, Carlson teaches Family Law and Contracts. Carlson began teaching at STCL in 1985. His helpful hint for students in his courses — and in all others — focuses on the importance of outlining. "The process of mak- ing an outline is most valuable," he said. "It forces the student to or- ganize the material in the mind. One of the problems students have is that they receive such an enor- mous amount of information that it is hard to recall that information in any useful form." Devoting time to the community...

What a field trip! Student finds class in Oxford By LINDA JONES My brain was fuzzy, my thoughts were barely coherent and I felt numb. Seventeen months of continual law classes had taken their toll on my mind and spirit. It was time to get away — away from the college and away from the heat and humidity of a Texas summer. A study abroad program in Oxford, England was my escape. It sounded terribly presti- gious,...

Page 2 September 1994 Juror finds lawsuit abuse not just a billboard By TONY NOLTE "Stop Lawsuit Abuse." I'm sure you've seen the bill- boards around town. As a third- year law student who wants to practice corporate law, I used to think that these billboards were immaterial to me and would not impact me. But I was wrong. About a month ago, I received a jury notice. I went down to the big (jury assembly) room, and sat, hoping not to be called. But the clerk called my name, and I was number five on a civil panel of 40. The bailiff led us over to the courtroom, and the attorneys began voir dire (pro- nounced vor dye-er). The case involved alleged medical malprac- tice. There were four attorneys: one for the plaintiff and one for each of three defendants. I attempted to persuade them that I would not be a good jury member, pointing out that I was a 3L at South Texas. But other panelists said they had previous experiences with lawsuits against doctors, or that they worked in the health ...

7 September 1994 Page 3 School continues search for excellence — but that's not all: Now, the search is on for a new STCL dean and library director By WILLIAM L. WILKS It seems as if a quality law school is always searching — for something. We are constantly searching for ways to improve the quality of life at South Texas; for ways to increase and enhance the reputation of South Texas with our various publics; for techniques to train the lawyers of tomorrow; for the means to acquire more "things" for the school, be it carpeting, computers or a new library; and for incentives which will continue to attract students dedicated to becoming true professionals, and staff and faculty to help them reach that goal. We are achieving remarkable success in these searches. We are currently conducting a search for a new director of the library. Several candidates from widely diverse backgrounds and parts of the country have been interviewed on campus. In addition, the Board of Trustees is now in ...

Watch out, Miss Manners... These are the definitive rules of STCL etiquette By REBECCA EPLEN With the influx of approximately 300 new students, and the return of 1,003 continuing students, it seemed appropriate that we all be informed of the proper law school etiquette. By following the guidelines below, life at STCL should at least be tolerable as we trudge through another semester toward the ultimate goal of gradua- tion and a license to practice law. * Don't be the first person on a crowded elevator if your destina- tion is only the next floor up or down. The elevators aren't really slow, it just takes a long time for 25 people to unload and reload to let you out. * Remember that students coming out of a classroom have the right of way. Simple rule of physics: No two objects can occupy the same space at the same time. * If you are notoriously and chronically late for class, choose an aisle seat in the back, instead of the middle seat in the front row. Despite your best efforts, y...

At least 80 teams have signed up to compete in the intra- mural moot court competition set for mid-October and the first mock trial tournament is already under- way. The Garland R.

As of publi- cation, 36 teams have signed up for this competition, and a trial skills seminar was presented by Houston attorney and South Texas graduate Dean Barth.

— September 1994 Page 9 Downtown Demeanor continued from page 3 shaking. He was tall, skinny and had grey hair. I gave him a down- town half smile, acknowledging that I saw him (for safety pur- poses) but showing no interest. 1 also gave him the downtown once- over. My evaluation was that he was homeless and either drunk or hung over, attempting to make his way back to some flop-house. He smiled and kept walking. My suspicions were confirmed as I returned from my car to the sidewalk in front of the student lounge and found him sitting on the ground with his hand out, mumbling. There were several people between the man and me, going in both directions. I felt safe, but a little disgusted. That is when the moment of truth and true education struck me like a lightening bolt from that cool, blue sky. Several students, downtown demeanor in full position, walked by without noticing the man. As I got closer, I readied myself: Eyes straight ahead, hearing off, heart closed. Then a black stu...

SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW ANNOTATIONS Volume XXIII, Number 2 October 1994 Can term limits remedy all that ails Congress? By JIM RUSSIAN Annotations Columnist Americans are fed up with Washington politicians. According to a recent Times Mirror survey, eight out of 10 people believe that "most elected officials don't care what people like me think." It is no wonder that term limits have become a popular solution to cure the electorate's woes. In Novem- ber 1992, voters in 14 states approved laws limiting congres- sional terms. The limits are uni- formly 12 for senators and vary from six to 12 years for House members. However, state-spon- sored term limits have recently come under fire from groups such as the League of Women Voters and the American Civil Liberties Union. It is likely that a federal constitutional amendment is necessary to bring such a drastic change to the face of American politics. Although the United States Supreme Court has not ruled on the issue, a federal distric...

Page 2 October 1994 In Reply Enforcing positive duty could lead to a disaster By ARTHUR GRIMALDO Tom Browder, in his article, "Positive Duty: What, Exactly, Is It, and Does It Come With Our Diploma?" (Annota- tions, September issue) said the law, that is, the law of humanity, should express the pursuit of the common good. As an example, he proposes that there should be a legal duty to save an infant lying face down in a mud puddle. I disagree. I do not mean to suggest that the infant should be left to suffocate in the mire. I know I would not hesitate to save such a child, nor do I think that the great majority of the human race could leave the child to its demise. I merely take issue with the idea that the duty should be bound by law, and made enforceable. To make such a law would lead to disastrous results. For example, take the same situation, but make it two infants. Which should the passerby save first? Does she not have a legal duty to save both? What if there is only time to ...

October 1994 Page 3 It's too early to start cramming, so... SBA has fun in store By WILL BURDINE SBA President Well, we are more than halfway through the semester, and everything seems to be running smoothly. We have accomplished several of our objectives, but I would like to tell you what we plan for the future. First, we are in search of a graduation speaker for the May 9 ceremony. Our graduation com- mittee will be checking on pros- pects, but if any of you has con- tacts, please drop us a note in the SBA office with your name and phone number. We will be glad to do the rest. Second, we are planning a ski trip (like last year) to Vail, Colo., on Jan. 3-8, 1995. The cost will be around $285 (exclud- ing travel) and $12 a day for ski rental. We will have a sign-up poster in the front of the school for anyone interested, with a meeting to be scheduled soon. Third, our Halloween party will be on Saturday, Oct. 29, hopefully from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. Last year's smash band, AXIS, will ...

Page 4 October 1994 Sports and Recreation Book casts no aspersions on fly-fishing By STEVEN HUDGINS Annotations Sportswriter AUSTIN--A new book about fly-fishing in Texas that recently was published caught your sports-writer's eye. Fly- fishing the Texas Hill Country by B.L. "Bud" Priddy is an in-depth look at one of the state's untapped resources: fly- fishing in hill country streams. The book gives information about lodging and access to 13 streams, ranging from the Frio in the western part of the hill coun- try to the Colorado River, which dumps its waters into the Gulf of Mexico. Al- though I have yet to fish all 13 streams, I took a trip earlier this year with Univer- sity of Houston 3L Trey Griggs to the Blanco River just east of Wimberly. Used in conjunction with a Texas road map, the book gives accurate directions to access points along the various streams. In our trip, the access point was a low river crossing/dam. The water was cool, clear and relatively shallow (2-4 feet)...
