Commentary Legal Ethics Quandry Reveals No Easy Outs By RICK BUTLER Business Manager Many questions of national concern have been raised as a result of Wateigate. One of these questions involves the discipline and conduct of the legal profession today. As Chesterfield Smith, President of the ABA, said in a speech last year, "... lawyers bear a special responsibility in our society toward the preservation of a free and democratic government." "Yet, the fact is that the public has experienced a growing distrust of the attorney's ability, or willingness, to function in that respect. A Harris survey reported in the Wall Street Journal recently showed that only 24 percent of Americans view lawyers favorably. As the Journal put it, critics question "whether lawyers can be trusted to police themselves and punish their own brethren." The problem seems to go deeper than the fact that many of those involved in Watergate happened to be laywers. There seems to be a failure on the part of attorn...

)TAT10NS H A Simple Case of Decency Thomas Paine called it "Common Sense," but the events he addressed were far more momentous than those which confound us at South Texas College of Law. And yet the principles that we regard as governing the relations between one human being and another, in this country, are pretty much the same, regardless of scale. Tuition will be $5 higher per semester hour beginning in the Fall, the Dean's office tells us. The increase is to be announced in the new catalogue; in much the same way McDonald's raises the price of a Big Mac. You get the price when you read the menu. Roughly 850 human beings stake their lives and their careers on South Texas College of Law each semester. Every action taken by the Board of Trustees or the administration of the college which affects either their ability to continue in school or the public image of the law college has a lasting effect on each of them. We do hot argue with the tuition increase specifically-it is, in all ...

ANNOTATIONS, Rige 3 The King James Version By JIM SKELTON S.B.A. President Fellow Students: During the month of June your new S.B.A. Board of Governors sought to remedy many organizational problems faced bymost new administrations. In effect, the Board is still "getting its feet wet" while attempting to initiate programs and realize goals we set during the campaign and election last March. With this in mind, the format of this first report is in reference to the proposals listed in my campaign article of the March, 1974 edition of ANNOTA- TIONS. OUTLINE FILE The S.B.A. outline file has been re-organized and is ready to begin functioning on a 24 hour loan basis. Current student outlines, not commercial outlines, are those in which the outline committee is primarily interested. I've donated all my outlines and hope everyone else who has something to contribute will follow suit. The outline file is now open to all students every afternoon from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Room 328. GOLF ...

4, ANNOTATIONS VIEW FROM me 5 "Ya Gets Whatcha Pays For" is an old expression which tells the story of the South Texas Student Bar Association. For the past several years the students of the school have paid little for good student government and in return they have received even less. The quality of the student government of the school is wholly dependent on the attitude that the students themselves take towards the conduct of their elected officials. If students do not expect much from these officials, then they will not get much. Heading the list, is the office of the President. It is on his or her shoulders that the responsibility for good student government lies. If the president is not able to function properly, then the student government will fail. A good president spends countless hours working for his constituents. For the person elected, the office becomes a full-time responsibility leaving little time for outside activity. It is for this reason that it is about time that...

Brad Morris Legal Profession Faces Loss of Confidence The legal profession continues to ride a strife-torn path of uncertainty in the arena of final judgement, the American public. During the last few years law school applications and enrollments have soared. Whether this great demand is merely a seasonal expression which wil be short-lived has yet to be determined. However, it appears certain that the great number of students currently attending law school will have continuing influence upon the American legal system and community at laige for the next forty to fifty years. One question which readily presents itslef after making these brief observations is whether the current training ground for future lawyers provides a conducive atmosphere for healthy professional development. My medium for observation must necessarily focus upon those areas at South Texas which I feel have a dehabilitating effect on prospective laywers. Law in inherently a competitive profession, as seen in the ...

Plage 6, ANNOTATIONS "?K¿d- ¿euv StKAtófi 't Bv JANET BOYLE I tried to organize these various thoughts and observations into a high school English class outline format, but they just wouldn't go. Please excuse any literary leap frogging. (I will try to use paragraphs.) I have suggested that S.B.A. meetings be held at 4:00 instead of 4:30. We simply need more time to have full discussion on the various proposals that come before the S.B.A., and all of us would like to get to class by 5:20 or so. I realize this is a problem for the student who works until 5:00 ... but let's be realistic... the student who works until 5:00 can barely make a 5:30 class. If you fall into this category, call us ... 223-1448 ... (Some of us are in the S.B.A. office every afternoon) or leave a note at the S.B.A. office or in the S.B.A. mai. box in the main administration office ... we want your participation. My primary function, as Mid-Law Senator, is to organize the Spring Banquet. Jim Skelton and I have ...

ANNOTATIONS, Page 7 ABA Law Student Division - Circuit Report by E. DEAN ROPER LSD 13th Circuit Governor I am writing this article as the L.S.D. Rep of S.T.C.L. as well as Governor of the 13th Circuit of A.B.A./L.S.D. Both of those positions carry with it the responsibility of keeping the law students informed about current activities of the Law Student Division. I feel that once the student becomes aware of the contributions the Division is making in the field of legal education they will be more anxious to support it through membership. As of March, 1974, we had 252 members at S.T.C.L. The Annual Meeting of A.B.A./L.S.D. will be ehld in Chicago, August 1-4.1 encourage each of you to consider attending this year's meeting. It will be an excellent opportunity to meet other law students from every state, plus leaders of the law profession. There will be many exciting and educational panel discussions and work shops. Elections for national officers will be held, also, The meeting will...

Page 8, ANNOTATIONS Golfers to Compete in Second School Tournament By RICK BUTLER Business Manager The second of this year's golf tournaments will be played at Gus Wortham Municipal Golf Course on July 14. Sixty-four players participated in the tournament at Hermann Park last March and hopes are that this event will be even larger. Although the last tournament was highly successful, there will be a few changes made. Two dozen individual trophies will be given for the lowest scores in six flights. Each flight will be broken up so that persons will be competing against the same calibre player as himself; therefore, everyone will have an equal chance to take home a trophy. In addition, for those who played poorly in the last tournament, there will be a chance to win the "most improved" trophy. And for those who play poorly consistently, there will be a "worst score" trophy. A new golf glove will be given for the "longest drive" on a designated hole and a dozen golf balls for the "close...

STCL To Participate In Legal Aid Foundation Legal Aid Clinic, this year's Student Bar Association project, is now seeking student participants, reports E.D. Roper, LSD representative. Student participation will be the key to success, he adds. In his report to ANNOTATIONS, Roper explained that the purpose of the project is twofold. It will provide a valuable service to the community and provide students with an opportunity for valuable practical training as an addition to their legal education. Roper says the project will be coordinated with the existing Legal Aid Foundation now in operation in Harris county. These centers provide legal services to indigent people in the community. The six centers in Harris county are in great need of qualified Legal manpower. "We need students who can spend a minimum of one half day with a maximum of two days per week working in one of the Legal Aid Centers," Roper said. Hopefully, we can have the project in operation by October 15, 1974. This will ...

Page 2, ANNOTATIONS A QUESTION OF COMMITMENT Somewhere, 65 or 70 years ago a man was bom on a Tuesday morning; he died today. And nothing of any consequence in his life intervened. He might, just as well, have been a toad, for all the difference it would have made. Many people are like that. Somehow, they are never able to grasp hold of that elusive something that in some intangible way separates the significant from the inconsequential. That something that marks the difference between a plumber and a fitter of pipes; between a President and an elected official. They come and they go, but it just doesn't make any difference. 01 £• Grade m* Mutabe.1L . — Bate oCetteró to the ¿Editor Proctors, Legal Pads Cause Problems In Finals Dean Walker: As I am sure you are endeavoring to improve the system of administering the final examinations, I feel it is my duty to bring to your attention two situations I have experienced.

The King James Version By JIM SKELTON SBA President Fellow Students: Due to a back injury, during most of the month of September, I was unable to attend classes. However, beginning with the S.B.A. general meeting of September 24, I resumed my duties as your President of the S.B.A. I hope to continue a comeback to fulltime participation in both academic and S.B.A. work. The other members of your Board of Governors have been working with me to keep me informed of the events at STCL. Together, I believe we'll be able to have a full and successful semester. The cooperation of the other members of the Board has allowed me to file the following report: STUDENT DIRECTORY The 1974-75 Studnet Directory is now being prepared by your Board of Governors. Advertisers are currently being contacted and a list of student names and addresses will be completed within the week. Target date for distribution is the end of the month of October.

Page 4, ANNOTATIONS Job Opportunities For Young Attorneys Federal, State And Local Positions Available Charles J. Weigei III By CHARLES J. WEIGEL III Assistant Professor of Law Some years ago, a sea captain, who had more than enough of the charm and mystery of the sailor's life, vowed that when he signed off his vessel for the last time he was going to put one of the ship's anchors over his shoulder and start walking inland. He planned to woalk until he met someone who would ask what he was carrying on his back. Then he would drop the anchor and settle. This attitude toward the practice of law is not unknown among graduating law students. Even though a young lawyer has an antipathy toward practice, he has alternatives. Several areas besides the practice of private law offer opportunities for rewarding careers. Paramount among these are public or government service and association in the business world. ALTERNATIVES EXPLAINED The first of these alternatives, government service, can b...

Ralph Nader and Mike Royko, for example, are Gadflies; Nelson Rockefeller and William F. Buckley are Gotz-bees. Traditionally, the have ("gotzes") distrust Gadflies because the Gadfly's stake in the system is usually so negligible that his tanding to criticise it is suspect. Conversely, the have-littles and the have-nots (collectively, "gotz-nots") distrust Gotz-bees because their stake in the system is so substantial that it would seem difficult, if not impossible, for Gotz-bees to avoid conflicts of interest. However, most people never- theless follow Gotz-bees be- cause most of our leaders are Gotz-bees; in fact, they've cornered the market on leadership for so long that people have historically ac- cepted Gotz-bees as the group most qualified to lead.

ftge 6, ANNOTATIONS Declaration Of Intent; Fewer Requirements, Larger Grey Areas By HOLLY CRAMPTON ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer There have been some changes regarding the filing of Declarations of Intent to Study Law. Some of the laiger hurdles have been abolished. Specifically, let.ers of recommendation and personal interviews are no longer required of every student. There is an interesting assortment of items which MAY be required. These include a personal interview, fingerprints, and any supporting documents and other information which the Board may reasonably require. In searching the Rules for an idea of what "good moral character and fitness" really means, we discovered that convicted felons are automatically barred, but anything further is a large grey area. Quoting from Rule II: The purpose of.. .good moral character is to exclude from the practice of law those persons possessing character traits that are likely to result in injury to future clients, in the obstruction of justic...

ANNOTATIONS, PAD Legal Frat Report Tom Taylor receives the "Outstanding P.A.D. of the Year" Award from Dr. W. B. Wharton. The Constitution and International By-Laws of Phi Alpha Delta Fraternity, International set forth the purpose and goal that Samuel Houston Chapter attempts to fulfill. Article II, entitled "Declaration of Purpose", emphasizes the importance of professional development programs to supplement the regular scholastic programs at South Texas College of Law. PAD has been striving to provide these programs for the benefit of all students at STCL. July 18, PAD sponsored the second summer program with Dr. Duffy speaking on real estate closings. On Wednesday, September 25, the first of the fall programs was held. These programs are designed to give the law student some answers to practical problems that will be faced early in his legal career.

2, November 1974, ANNOTATIONS Jlelt "THE TIME HAS COME, THE WALRUS SAID. It doesn't take an expert's eye to discern that the students at South Texas College of Law are taking a screwing. It is perhaps a bit more difficult to point squarely to those responsible. And yet we've passed our nose along the lip of this particular kettle of fish, and the character of the smell is not in doubt. Something is dead. And something else is very nearly so, and we've all seen the It is a fact, for example, that the student body has petitioned the faculty and administration for a number of sorely needed changes in the operation of the law school; it is also a fact that not one single substantial change has been made. And the changes sought have not been wide-eyed radical changes. Rather, they have been hard, they have been sound, and they have been reasonable. They have, in fact, been conservative, . . . things like a reasonable deadline for the return of grades, like a student-faculty curriculum co...

November 1974, ANNOTAITONS Trustees Active, Set General Policy — Tunks 'The students have every right to know what the hell the Board is doing." said Judge Tunks in a recent Annotations interview probing the present activities of the STCL Board of Trustees. Tunks, Chief Justice of the 14th District Court of Civil Appeals, is a part-time professor at STCL and has been an active member of the Board of Trustees at STCL for the past seven years. "It's not uncommon for a student to ask what the Board is doing for me or for the school," said Tunks, "Students don't see the work and self sacrifice of our Board members, but let me assure you, the Board is active." Tunks described STCL as a non-profit corporation whose Board of Trustees includes 23 general members and 7 officers. "Basically," spoke Tunks, "the function of the Board is to fix policies." Thé Board considers and votes on policies and operates generally; it does not devote itself to details. The President of the school and the De...

>4, 1974, ANNOTATIONS Buc Bax "And The Beat Goes On 99 Last week's schedule I meeting of the faculty, the purpose of which was selection ot office space in the new building was postponed indefinitely due to a lack of interest. Apparently, many of the faculty members had other pressing appointments while the others were making a last ditch attempt at grading last semester's exams before the deadline for submission of this semester's exams fell upon them. Let us now take a look at a few of the underlying reasons for the faculty's non-attendance of the meeting: Dean Walker was supposedly composing a letter to those faculty members who are delinquent in getting their grades posted. The dean is being very cautious not to offend any of these teachers since their services are needed next semester. Besides, registration is coming up soon and that mean rearranging the furniture in his office. Judge Bell has been too busy checking off the names from his "unprepared slips" received earlier ...
