MARCH I 999 OF>inío*J Page 6 Texas Supreme Court decision leaves a wrong without a remedy for patients "Vf By Jennifer Hyatt O'Neil Editor Out of fear of litigation, some hospitals in recent years exchanged their silence regarding disciplined physicians' records of incompetence for the physicians' voluntary resignations. This "arrangement" left physicians free to practice medicine elsewhere without a record of incompetence following them, and hospitals free to cany on with business without the cloud of looming retaliatory suits by disci- plined, reported doctors; thus, some hospitals were avoiding their obligation to report incompetent physicians. This situation ran counter to the growing trend toward improv- ing quality of health care through professional peer review. Recognizing the impact of this situation on health care delivery, the Texas Legislature enacted article 4495b, section 5.06 of the Texas Medical Practice Act ("TMPA") in 1987 to encourage professional peer review i...

WLF provides an exciting opportunity to create a support- ive network to help you now and throughout your legal career. WLF's Mentor Program matches members with volun- teer mentors from the legal community. This is your chance to learn about life after law school: practicing law and the "real world". In the past, mentor pairs have been seen together at dinner, at the gym, in the courthouses, in the park, at depositions. Like any relation- ship, this is whatever you and your mentor want it to be—only without the fights over the remote. Interaction among members and between WLF members and the legal community is also encouraged through various social events throughout the year.

APRIL I 999 Page 2 Texas Supreme Court Justice to speak at May Commencement Ceremonies & ■ I Texas Supreme Court Justice Harriet O'Neill has gratiously accepted Dean Read's invitation to speak at the up-coming commencement ceremonies. "Justice O'Neill is well acquainted with our school." said Dean Read. "She is a very good public speaker, and will craft a message that will touch families and students. We have gotten better speaches from people with a sense of the profession and the school." Justice Harriet O'Neill was elected to the Texas Supreme Court in November of 1998. Before her election, she served as a Justice on the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in Houston. She was appointed to the appellate court by Governor George W.

Students remember Judge Gist's knowledge, teaching ability and sense of humor long after they leave his classroom. He teaches Criminal Trial Advocacy and Criminal Procedure at South Texas. I recently got a call from a local civic organization asking if I would talk at one of their meetings about the funny things that happen in criminal court. Now that's a really interesting request. Like everyone involved in the criminal justice system, we seem to focus most of our time on the tragedy and heartbreak that's unfortunately all around us. But is there another side to our business? Someone mentioned that there are occasionally beautiful flowers at the garbage dump. There certainly are plenty of stories in the naked jungle A criminal prosecution, so I started sifting through some of the things we often talk about and sure enough, ...

By John Ensle The newly licensed attorney who en- gages in extensive trial practice will devote the predominant percentage of his time handling cases before the courts of the state in which he is en- gaged in the practice of law. However, one who practices in a large metropol- itan area, such as Houston, will fre- quently have occasion to appear as counsel in litigation filed in the United States District Courts. He may find that he must defend a case which has been filed in federal court by his adversary or may deem it advisable to institute suit In federal court from time to time on behalf of his clients. For example, a bankruptcy case may be commenced there only. An admiralty case, wherein one desires to use pro- cess in rem to obtain security for a claim by seizing a vessel , must be in- stituted in federa...

Hutchins says he hopes tentative agreements will be reached in early August with Linbeck Corp., general contractor, so the order for structural steel can be placed. Hutchins says the six to seven month delivery for steel will be the critical factor in setting the starting date for excavation. If the steel is ordered by mid-August, Hutchins says, crews may be on the site in October or November. From the date steel arrives, construction will take about 12 months, including renovation ...

AF'RIL I 999 You don't know what you don't know OF*íníon Page ! O By: Jennifer Hyatt O'Neil Editor Everyone said it would be here before I knew it. What they didn't say was that it would be as unnerving as my first law school exam. I'm not referring to the exercise of mental gymnastics in writing the bar exam. I'm not referring to the closest thing to hell I will know so far in my life, so I'm told, known as studying for the bar exam. I'm not even referring to the time when seconds seem like minutes and minutes seem like days, when I have to wait for bar results. I'm referring to the time after all of this...when I am a lawyer. The mere thought of this is frightening because after we leave the safe, protective womb of law school, we are on our own in a world where we are just beginning to learn how to survive. As I learned more about the law, the more I realized how much I won't know even with a J.D. freshly in my hands. The mitigating factor allaying some of my fears, however, is t...

But the issues are complex. Stakes are high. Pressures increase as we try to balance the demands of practice, family and ministry.

Page 2 Editorial August 1999 tf A. One-L's Higher Duty f f By Sean Palmer Assistant Editor We were a group of freshly minted "one L's" into our first few days of law school. Sitting in the caf- eteria the excitement in the group was palpable, and my new classmates and 1 were trying to act cool and col- lected. We had no desire to advertise how green we were and we all put on our best nonchalant poker faces, as if these first few days in law school were just a rou- tine thing, and not an elec- trically charged time of ad- venture. But we weren't fooling anyone; not even ourselves. We had all been talking on and on about what we were going to do, about how much money we were going to make, about what the law school and the legal profes- sion in general was going to do for us. But at no time did anyone mention how they were going to serve others with their new "lawyerly" powers. No one mentioned the plight of the homeless, the greed of the corpora- tions, the corruption in our city hal...

You show up for your first class, find a seat, unload your backpack, take a swig of Naya, and casually scope the room. For the first time you notice that some of your fellow students... look like they could be your par- ents. Man, some of them look like they could be your grandparents. And you don't want to stare, but you think you've spotted one of them wearing... bermuda shorts to a law school class. Are these codgers really your class- mates, or have they just got lost on their way to the bingo hall? After the first week or so, you notice that these older students tend to be a cliquey bunch-they sit in small groups in class - talk among themselves at breaks - walk to and from classrooms together. Dur- ing class, you notice how these student...
