November 1974, ANNOTATIONS F*** Rob Hopper Keep Those Cards & Letters More and more columnists these days are covering their off-days by occasionally publishing odd lots of pan mail laced with humorous rejoinders. I've always avoided that sort of thing but I've recently been told that I've got too think a skin and that I take myself too seriously; so I've decided to publish what readers have written about me in order to prove that I can take it as well as dish it out: Dear Mr. Hopper: The next time I need someone to tell me that I've disillusioned with our government, I'll ask - until hten, don't offer! - a happy "gotz-not" COMMENT: Kiss off! Dear Wise Acre: Your condescending remarks regarding Good Ole Boys are offensive to myself and others like me who are proud to have been born and raised in the Southwest. - Bubba Lee Stear COMMENT: Get snapped! R.H.: Reading your column is like fishing in Buffalo Bayou; you never know what you're going to get, but you know it'll be unfit fo...

Internship Filling Legal Education Gap By TOM JOHNSON In a speech at Fordham Law School in December of 1973, Chief Justice Warren Burger urged that law schools require additonal training and testing before a lawyer may be a trial advocate. Burger, who has had 43 years of trial and judicial experience, lamented that perhaps as many as one-half of American trial attorneys are incompetent. These practitioners either stymie the courts in an awkward attempt to account for every minute possibility, or, at the other extreme, ruin their client's case by disregarding a crucial point. Burger proposed that the. current three year curriculum be compressed into two for the prospective advocate, thereby allowing him to concentrate exclusively on courtyroom advocacy in the third year. He further urged that the last year be followéd by a few years of apprenticeship, comparable to medical residency. BRITISH SYSTEM The British legal system, Burger's model, differentiates between "office lawyers", sol...

November 1974, ANNOTATIONS Page 7 State Bar Experimenting With Specialization By JIM SKELTON The State Bar of Texas is participating in a pilot program which should be of interest to most law students. The State Bar Board of Directors and the Supreme Court of Texas have adopted standards which will permit specialization by Texas lawyers in three substantive fields: family law, criminal law and labor law. Similar pilot programs are bemg undertaken in California and New Mexico. The program is an out growth t of Disciplinary Rule 2-105(A) (4) of the Code of Professional Responsibility, which provides: "A lawyer who is certified as a specialist in a particular field of law or law practice by the authority having jurisdiction under the state law over the subject of specialization by lawyers may hold himself out as such specialist but only in accordance with the rules prescribed by that authority." A Board of Legal Specialization has been appointed by the President of the State Bar to imp...

Page 8, November 1974, ANNOTATIONS DELT Law Fraternity Report By ANN L. KREMPP Deli Bailiff The Delts had their Fall Semester' Rush Party early in October at the Pisces Club. Members, prospective members and freinds had a chance to mingle and share mid-semester "tips" about the courses in progress and other less weighty topics. The beer flowed as freely as the conversation. The Delts want to announce the postponement of the ANNUAL Joint DELT-Pad Casino Party to early in the Spring Term. But least you fear that nothing will happen in November - watch the Delt Bulletin Board for announcement of the "Mystery" Party scheduled for November. The quest is continuing for more student outlines for the Delt Outline File, that has been donated to the S.B.A. for the entire school's benefit. Least you forget, those finals are coming soon.

10, November 1974, ANNOTATIONS COMMENT Law Journal - Important To You By TOMMY GILSTRAPJR. Leading Articles Editor South Texas Law Journal South Texas College of Law has grown and prospered at the hands of many fine individuals. Our own Dr. Garland R. Walker, who has been an essential part of our school since 1959, has not only brought the school substantially out of the "red", but has transpired us from a dying, unkonwn, part-time, ABA blackball into a fine and respected school. He has increased our enrollment to near 1,000 (the second largest law school in Texas), he has year after year increased our standards and, as a result we have flourished with ever expanding respect and excellence. The purpose of this article however, is not to open your eyes, to Dean Walker and the many other administrators and fine professors who are responsible for the success of our school. But rather, it is to open your eyes as to how integral a part of this school you are. Without the individual succe...

12, November 1974, ANNOTATIONS Fall Football Off To A Passing Start n w Well, fall is in the air, leaves are turning orange and brown, Monday night football is back, and, once again, a new season starts for the South Texas Blue and Gold football teams. And start they did a few weeks ago in their long drives toward the championship to be decided in December. Coach Brannon's blue team dropped its first two games, but the coach is confident that his team will bounce back and become a strong contender by the end of the season. The team is in a building season after losing most of its starters from last year. Only six of last year's players are back but included is Felix Recio, an exceptional rusher and an all-star last year. The rest of the team is made up of rookies, but Coach Brannon predicts that the team will gel and that "true quality will show by the end of the season." Brannon has three quarterbacks to work with (Everitt Urech, Roger Schmidt, and Thes Rice) and admits that he is ...

EXAM ISSUE South 1220 Polk Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Vol-'" Nv.3. December-1974 Deadline -- Review Plans Offered for Faculty Vote gifts. While many shoppers are hunying through their Christmas shopping, STCL students prepare for examinations - a celebration at which few gifts are given, but would gladly be received. Students Meet With Dean Grading Prompts Queries On November 14, Jim Skelton, SBA president, announced that Dean Walker had drawn up two proposals regarding grading which, if the SBA approved, he would submit to the Faculty Committee for consideration. Two days earlier the Dean had rejected such plans. The proposals involving a grading deadline and a plan of limited review of examinations were considered and passed with some changes by the SBA Board. The proposals generated some heat at the meeting and changes were generally aimed at liberalizing the examination review proposal. The grade deadline approved was six-weeks. The Board unanimously agreed to meet informa...

December 1974, ANNOTATIONS, Page 3 -Jl Buc rr Times They Are A Changin' 99 Bax As many of you are aware, South Texas College of Law is currently being Besieged by requests for "change." I must admit that many of the desired changes are valid and very worthwhile. I'm afraid, however, that we've overlooked many of the important innovations needed at our school. For purposes of student awareness, I propose the following changes be made at South Texas: 1. Co-educational dormitories on campus with each student having his or her own pajamas with the South Texas emblem embroidered in a distinct location that a reasonably, prudent person would recognize. 3. Underground tunnel direct to Shelby's. This would save many lives and, furthermore, avoid even the appearance of professional impropriety. 1. 4. An organization for those students in the bottom 10% of their class. 5. Full time doctor retained by the school for any unforseen consequences of suggestions 1 and 2. 6. Devices for translating ...

While the trustees were voting to exclude him and his successors forever, Walker waited outside the room, mistakenly believing that the trustees would admit him at any moment. He had waited for more than an hour before Dean Walker informed him of the trustees' decision. The trustees operate in secrecy. As governors of a private corporation, they owe no duty to report their decisions or hear opinions of the students during their meetings.

Hgv 2, ANNOTATIONS, February 1975 On Understanding The New Code A LONG WAY BACK Five thousand "impossibles" ago, we listened as Dean Garland Walker moved his lips to form one, and having done so, he set it adrift, to float gently for a while and then to burst above a student query asking of the feasibility of a deadline for the return of grades. We all heard it, and it was just one from countless hours of Dean Walker telling us in beautifully reasoned stanzas why nothing could be done about anything ... ever. And yet, on December 11, the faculty enacted a deadline for the return by instructors of student exam grades and with little more than a wave of its hand. And Dean Garland Walker played a major role in securing the deadline. We were frankly stunned; and just a little proud. It goes almost without saying that we appreciate and heartily commend the action of the faculty. But we must add to this our commendation to the personal integrity of Dean Walker. He read our petitions and l...

By 1IM SKELTON S.B.A. President Fellow students: As predicted, the New Year has brought some important changes to the student body of STCL. Details concerning the grading deadline and the right of review of final examinations appear elsewhere in this edition of ANNOTATIONS. However, it is safe to say these changes are the direct result of the articles appearing in ANNOTATIONS during the past year and the petitions which were distributed through the S.B.A. OLD EXAM FILE One of the new developments of the Faculty Meeting last month was the agreement to cooperate with the S.B.A. in establishing an old exam file. Of course, it is not mandatory for the instructors to place exams in the file, but only one of the 12 full time professors approached has definitely decided against donating to such a file. A letter has been sent to the adjunct professors requesting their participation in the exam file. Contributions have been slow in coming in, and I foresee at least a months or two before the...

Any student wishing to file his intention to run for an SBA office must obtain a form from the SBA office no later than February 20. The form includes a declaration of intent to run for office and the signature of five fellow students attesting to the candidate's good character. Many are wondering "Am I qualified"? The SBA Constitution defines each office and its respective qualifications. The President and Vice-President shall be a person at STCL who has completed no less than 35 hours but no more than 65. In no instance shall a person who has less than three (3) semesters remaining, exclusive of the present semester, be eligible for office. The Secretary and Treasurer offices shall be held by a STCL student who has completed no less than 20 hours and no more than 65. The Legislative power of the SBA lies ...

ANNOTATIONS, Page 7 Small Claims: A Big Hit By STEVE GANO Associate Editor In these days of an inflationary economy, it sometimes seems that the word "living" means "getting the shaft". Rent deposits are never returned, garages that overcharge for repairs, stores that refuse to honor warranties, are some of the daily injustices which elevate our blood pressure, and lean our wallets. When it happens to me, I rant and rave and threaten suit, but as my anger cools so does my interest in pursuing "justice". Like many people, I feel it's just not worth the effort. But alas, there is hope for the poor and downtrodden masses. Spawned by Art. 2460a V.A.C.S., the Small Claims Court offers to everyone the opportunity to have his "day in court" no matter how small or trivial the claim. The purpose of the Small Claims Court is to allow a party to assert his rights, where the amount in controversy can't justify retention of counsel and a full blown trial. It's a "small guy" court, with a maximum...
