SOUTH TEXAS rAi Volume XXVI, Number 4 The Student Newspaper of South Texas College of Law December 1997 Moot Court Stars Shine in Connecticut by Prof. T. Gerald Treece The advocacy "victory" train went through Hartford, Connecticut this past week as South Texas again has won the Judge William F. Starr National Insurance Law Moot Court Competition hosted by the University of Connecticut and sponsored by the Hartford insurance community. Actually, the news is doubly good, because our two teams met each other in the semi-finals and the toughest round we faced during the com- petition was when we had to play ourselves. At any rate, the team of Jonathan Horowitz, Sandra Howard, and Todd Trombley defeated Drake University Law School in the final round which was judged by members of the Connecticut Supreme Court. Our semi-finalist team was Chad Points, Melanie Rubinsky, and Robin Taylor. Both STCL teams were recog- nized for tying for the 2nd Best Brief award. Moreover, Robin Taylor receiv...

Page 2 December 1997 STCL's Terrace Cats Find Happy Home by Eddie Yarbrough Administrative Associate - STCI Library If you visited the school terrace the past two years, you may have noticed The Cats. The mama, a tortoise shell, de- livered a litter of two last year. The kittens were captured and placed in a horse stable thanks to the efforts of Kim Parker, Vice President for devel- opment. She boards her horse there and the stable owner was delighted to welcome the mousers. This year mama had a kitten. Kind people here at STCL supplemented their diet, but both badly needed veterinary care. In late October, Laura, Edstrom, Library Ac- counting Assistant, "vol- unteered" her sister, Dr. Mary Tatum of Post Oak Willowbend Animal Clinic for the job. Dr. Tatum agreed to charge a reduced rate and loaned Laura a wild animal trap. Through the efforts of several concerned school employees (Laurie Gaas, Margie Holt, Julie Saunders and Eddie Yarbrough), the Terrace Cats were captured and treat...

December 1997 Page Students Speak Continued from page 1 Many of the recom- mendations that came out of that 1991 survey have become part of the fiber of what South Texas is today. That same year, the Strategic Planning Com- mittee dissolved, conclud- ing that their work was done for the time being, and that the recommenda- tions initiated by the image survey needed to be implemented by the board and the administrative staff of the college. By 1997, some of the questions that were asked in 1991 resurfaced, and the board decided that a new survey was in order. The board agreed to use the '91 survey as a benchmark to determine how much change had occurred, and to ask some questions concerning some new issues. The new survey was mailed in July to 1250 students, 8300 alumni and 160 staff and faculty members. Here are the questions that were asked of the students, and their responses. * How did you hear about South Texas College of Law? Most students heard about South Texas from friends (...

Twenty-eight percent of the students feel that the facility is better than most other schools, and 22% feel it is about the same. * How do you rate the aca- demic program offered at South Texas ? Thirty-three percent of the students rated the academic program better than most and 34% said it is about the same as at other law schools. They made the following suggestions to improve the program: more class options, better faculty, more legal research and writing courses, changing the grading system, and offering more practical skills courses. * Compare the full-time program to the part-time program. Fourty-eight percent of the students could not com- pare the two programs. Thirty-two percent said the programs were equal in quality. * Rate the quality of teach- ing. Twenty-eight pe...

Page 6 December 1997 Reversible Error ... Consider me not. By Ken Pajak - Editor A his semester has been plagued with controversial changes at South Texas. Granted, 1 have stirred the pot a little, but without intent to create harm - only to create discussion. Correct me if I am wrong, but I feel I speak for a majority of South Texas students when I say that I get the impression that our input does not matter to the administration. Over the past two years we have become, pardon the cliché, the often mentioned "red-headed stepchild." Many decisions have been made without any concern for the students currently attending South Texas. From grade enforcement to eliminating the December graduation ceremony, the decision- makers have undoubtedly had South Texas' best interest at heart; however, they failed to consider the effect these decisions have on current students. First, South Texas instituted a "First Semes- ter Rule" which kicked out students for eight months if they did not make a...

Page A April-May I OOS Stye "(Slat" of it: "Adjunct" Law Professor By Judge Larry Gist Senior Criminal District Judge & Adjunct Professor One of the guys who works for our criminal courts started going to law school several years ago. He registered at South Texas College of Law in Houston, and because like so many others he had to work all day, he attended classes in the evening. As he got closer to graduation, he registered for a course in criminal trial advocacy. The course is designed to provide practi- cal exercises for law students so they can learn the proper ways to enter and exclude evidence at a crimi- nal trial. The course ends with an actual "mock" trial in which the students serve as either the prosecutor or defense counsel. My friend asked me if í would like to serve as a judge in one of these "mock" trials. It seems that the professor wanted to have sitting trial judges preside over the cases, but since the trials were held on a Satur- day morning, it was difficult...

Page 6 April-May i 9©a South Texas College of Law ADVOCACY By T. Gerald Treece - Director of Advocacy Each semester, stu- dents approach me and ask how to explore their interest in participating in the Advocacy Program on the varsity-team level here at South Texas College of Law of Texas A&M University. Mock Trial and Moot Court are the two basic forms of legal advocacy. MOCK TRIAL advocates prepare a case, either civil or criminal, and then try that case before a judge and a jury. MOOT COURT advocates prepare and submit briefs to and argue before a panel of judges who ask the speakers questions of law. Both types of advo- cates are chosen on a try-out basis but there are certain basics which students can learn and develop in order to have the skills necessary to try-out for these varsity-level teams. Under my direction at STCL of TAMU are two advocacy classes which teach students the funda- mental basics of both trial and appellate arguments: 1. ADVANCED CIVIL LITIGATION (two h...

Page 8 April-May I 990 Guard Your Reputation Set the Standard Well this year has finally come to an end and I'm still alive. Actually, these three years are coming to an end and I am still alive! This should give all of the under- classmen some hope. Don't worry, you will see the light at the end of the tunnel soon. It seems like yesterday that I took the reigns at Annotations and began writing this editorial column - to the delight of some and to the trauma of others. Regardless, I hope I have created debate over some of the important issues facing South Texas College of Law of Texas A&M University (Whew, that's a mouthful). I hope that the next editor will continue bringing issues to the forefront. As I toiled over the subject of this last editorial, I found it appropriate to focus on the future: the future of those who are graduating and those who will ultimately graduate. I recently had the fortune to view To Kill a Mockingbird during an ethics discussion (surely you remembe...
