editorial t THE CURRICULUM: A NEW PERSPECTIVE The past few years of social up- heaval have brought a new awareness to this country - an awareness which has not been limited to simply one area nor used by simply one segment of the American scheme. This awareness, which one would expect to follow from every attempt at social change, has carried over into not only governmental areas but also to the fields of industry and education. As a result, methods of the past are now being questioned, and de- mands for change are being made. Some of these demands, unfortunately, are unreasonable, unfounded, and unavail- ing of the ills of the present or fu- ture, and those making them have lost the perspective of their goals in the brief glitter of glory given them through nation - wide publicity. How- ever, while rioting students tear away at the very system which they declare they want to assist, there are others who, recognizing the need to reevalu- ate their approach toward effective participa...

t CURRICULUM cont. Tax or in Evidence? Both are subjects which should be required of the stu- dent who expects to graduate, if not for his own good, then certainly for the good of the unknowing public upon whom is cast the fruits of our inef- fectiveness. For the protection of the students, however, it is also felt that the tax courses should be reeval- uated and organized on a basis which makes understanding of the subject matter more than a mere chance. It would also be nice not to have the stark realization that most of the grades in these courses fall below 70 facing the student who takes the course. This argument is specific only because it adroitly points out the necessity of reevaluating our "core curriculum." The possibility of establishing required courses for mid- year and senior law students must not be beyond the realm of investigation, for this . suggestion may help to pro- duce a better attorney, and this, re- sult can only benefit the reputation of our school in the c...

STUDENT POLL: THE MERGER For the past several months there has been much controversy surrounding the proposed merger of South Texas College of Law into the Texas A&S Uni- versity System. In response to this controversy, several South Texas stu- dents decided to test the opinion of the one group who was to be affected most by the decision of the state ju- dicators-the student body of South Texas. These students designed a set of questions which were intended to educe student response to the desira- bility of becoming part of a state- supported law school, as well as to indicate student feeling toward a mer- ger into the A&S System. It was hoped that a far larger number of students would respond to the questionnaire than actually did (two hundred and seventy-two students turned in re- plies), in order to draft a letter to each of the legislators to be used at a future date to explicate the favor- able and argumentative process of the night law student in Texas. Such a letter m...

PHI ALPHA DELTA We've begun the "fast" semester, the Spring one, the one that flashes past and has us all second guessing the finals just a few short weeks af- ter the registration line has myster- iously evaporated. To be certain the spring semester at South Texas is hec- tic; but Phi Alpha Delta hopes to make its regular contribution to the rich and mature student life and offer a mixture of professional and social events. PAD looks back to a successful 1968, one which saw David flail away at Goliath for a three for nine mark in the Student Bar elections, and which saw even more and significant PAD con- tributions to the Law Journal. Both the PADs and the Delts had excellent review programs to conclude the fall semester, with PADs Bushman, Manne and Robinson making fine contributions. Since the November issue things have been pretty quiet, with lingering memories of the sensational Harvest Ball held at the Ramada Inn. These memories, however vivid, are somewhat dimmed in the minds...

J T Sprecher Appointed Supreme Court Clerk South Texas College of Law is ex- tremely proud to be able to announce that Averum J. Sprecher, senior law student from East Haddam, Connecti- cut, has recently been appointed as briefing clerk for the year beginning August 1, 1969, for the Honorable Sears McGee, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas. The twenty- seven year old senior will graduate near the top of his class this coming June and is, of course, extremely ea- ger to undertake the duties of this new position, which by custom is lim- ited to only the finest law students from the state of Texas. Jay has recently been appointed Editor-in-Chief of the South Texas Law Journal and has been a member of the Law Review since the fall of 1967. His most notable writing achievement appeared in the last issue of our Law Journal, Volume 10, Number 3, page 222-268 and was entitled "Continuing Echos of Giddeon's Trumpet-The Indi- gent defendant and the Misdemeanor; A New Crisis Invol...

t CURRICULUM cont. programs is rarely over one hour, but the value to be gained from their use, especially in this area, cannot be measured quantitatively. By this writing, the Annotations hopes to raise an issue. Is South Texas College of Law using the most effective means it can to educate pro- spective attorneys? We request, as students, that the administration and the faculty reevaluate the system, without iimiting themselves to the in- quiries raised above, and answer the issue. We do not seek radical change, nor do we make student demands. We do, however, seek to assist ourselves in obtaining a better education and our school in securing an even more dis- tinctive reputation. OCffiS- PHAIR HEADS NEW LSD PROGRAM The Law Student Division of the A.B.A. has announced the inauguration of a high school law orientation pro- gram, supervised by the Pre-Law Com- mittee of the LSD. This experimental program will be conducted in four pilot cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Washingt...

WE I GEL cont. can call your partner "Dad" you may be able to best the large firm. There are always extraneous factors. Beginning incomes of from as much as $540.00 to $1000.00 a month can be looked to in the biggest firms. There is also a degree of security with the larger law concerns, if such a thing exists at all in private practice, that decreas- es as the size does. Some associations are even commencing to trifle with radical ideas like retirement pro- grams. Quite often too, though it usu- ally depends on the immediate needs of the firm, you will be able to develop a specialty which can afford a greater opportunity for recognition in the law. Most large law firms are of nec- essity composed of smaller departments devoted to one particular field of law practice. Income surveys have demon- strated that, at least from the prac- tice of law alone, the larger the firm, the most lucrative the results to the partner. A young attorney should expect to move from the posi- tion of a sa...

ANNOTATIONS Of The South Texas College of Law 1220 POLK - HOUSTON, TEXAS APRIL 1969 SO YOU WANT TO MAKE A FEDERAL CASE OUT OF IT! 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 federal court. Inasmuch as slight emphasis is placed ...

editorial A CALL FOR ACTION ea Countless terms of the English lang- uage are daily victims of sterile mis- construction, but perhaps none is as razed as the word "activism." With each new vogue comes an entirely new, and generally tainted, translation of the term which for centuries has been the forerunner of change. Webster be- lieves the word to mean "the doctrine or policy of doing things with energy and decision," and this still must be its most legitimate purpose. It is, indeed, ironic that the most success- ful adversary of the activist and his ü^l is the apathetic being of the fqmrp.on" man. Encounters are not as ten' lost to opposition as they are to apathy. There comes a time in every min's] life when he must do something %jrth energy and decision." Some will raTi " fati 'to pass the test and, as a result vríbl^r¡>emain imprisoned by their own indifference. Others will heed the call for decision, make that decision, att"# fight for its implementation. For mVs^V the decis...

4- ENSLE cont. heard on the written arguments and briefs of counsel. Oral argument on motions is allowed only if specific- ally requested. It therefore behooves the practitioner to file a written brief along with his motion. Federal judges utilize law clerks extensively, and lengthy deliberation is generally given to such matters. The court will issue a written ruling on the motion at a later date, copies of the ruling being furnished to counsel. With the approval of the court, many of the rulings are published in Federal Rules Decisions or Federal Supplement. Federal judges utilize extensively the pre-trial conference procedure authorized by Rule 16 of the Federal Rules. This is impractical in state court by reason of the overcrowded condition of the docket. A pre-trial conference is usually held between one and three months prior to trial. The court meets with counsel in chambers for the purpose of discussing the facts and legal questions involved in the case in order to eliminate...

ORAL ADVOCACY WORKSHOP IS SMASHING SUCCESS While the Ides of March might have been Caesar's downfall, it certainly proved to be an exciting revelation for many South Texas and University of Houston law students. It was at this time (March 15, 1969), at the Cullen Library Auditorium on the University of Houston campus, that the American Trial Lawyers Association presented a superb law student workshop on the art of oral advocacy. The ATLA has several educational programs designed for both students and practitioners alike, which are presented throughout the country each year. The individuals who present these programs, all successful trial lawyers, do so at their own time and expense. The purpose of these pro- grams is to instill in the law stu- dents throughout this nation an inter- est in the arena of oral litigation. This purpose was certainly accomp- lished. All South Texas students pre- sent at the program agreed that these men are performing an invaluable serv- ice to legal educ...

HONOR CODE REVISITED The 1969 Spring Honor Court was e- lected by the Board of Governors at a recent Student Bar meeting. This semester's Court consists of Bill Preston, Chief Justice, Craig Cowgill, Calvin Otte, Roger Williams, Jack Kirshner, Larry Dowell, Richard Demaris, Roy Brown, and Frank Young. David White is the Clerk of the Court, and Art Amdur is the Honor Court Coun- sel . Since the term of the Honor Court is one semester, three times a year its selection renews, to varying de- grees, a controversy which does, in fact, command a great deal of atten- tion: the Honor Code. This instrument embodies the ideals, ethics, and rules of conduct and disciplinary procedures which the Student Bar imposes upon and administers itself. Because the Honor Code is such an integral part of a student's life, it is invariably a plank in both platforms during SBA e- lections, with each candidate advoca- ting revisions. The present Honor Code, a copy of which is posted on the Student Bar bullet...

f AN ARGUMENT FOR MOOT COURT By Steve Kreiss I Allow me to preface this article by thanking the administration, particu- larly Dean Garland Walker and Profes- sor John Ensle, for its confidence, enthusiasm and assistance in granting permission for this school to enter the National Moot Court competition. South Texas received the highest score of all briefs submitted in that compe- tition. Secondly, I would like to en- courage all members of the student body to participate in a most excit- ing, memorable, and rewarding experi- ence , i.e., Moot Court. At present, preparations are being made for the State of Texas Moot Court competition. The oral argument to de- termine which team will represent South Texas will be held on May 10, while the deadline for the submission of the briefs is April 28. Interest seems keen and competitive already, despite the fact that there are only twenty-one participants. It is to be noted that there will be two moot court competitions every year hence- for...

ANNOTATIONS of The South Texas College of Law 1220 Polk, Houston, Texas • • • -77002 December, 1969 vol.1 FEDERAL EMPLOYMEN OPPORTUNI T I ES by C.l. WEIGEL Some years ago, a retiring sea cap- tain, who had 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 continue his journey in this fashion until he met someone who would ask what it was he was carrying on his back. Then he would put down the anchor and settle. This attitude toward the law and its practice is not unknown among graduat- ing law students. Even tnough a young lawyer may have such an antipathy to ward practice, he should not, however, preclude himself from the utilization of his legal education and its result- ant benefits. There are several other areas besides the practice of private law which offer the opportunity for rewarding careers. Par...

Delta Tbeta Phi Delta Theta Phi is the largest and oldest fraternity at South Texas. Our current membership consists of over 100 students who have joined together to promote legal scholarship and to participate in the many professional and social activities of Delta Theta Phi. Delta Theta Phi, in addition to many social activities, stresses acad- emic excellence among its members. The success of our members is snown by the fact that Delt Brother Neal Duvall was tne top graduate of South Texas in June 1969. Our fraternity was also well representeu at the Annual Student Bar Association Spring Awards Banquet. Among those receiving awards were Delt brothers Bob McPherson (No. 2 in 1969 graduating class), Wayne Paris (Past Student Bar President), Neal Duvall, Roger Marshall, Gene Gibbs, Craig Cow- gill, Art Amdur, Richard Tucker, and George Phair.

IN RETROSPECT by Ted Schiewitz S. T. C. L. Alumnus Each person must realize that his future is only as promising as he makes it. A like analogy will reveal that the future of our school is only as good as its faculty, students, and graduates. It should then follow, that if each of the above asserts himself to nis fullest capability and capacity he, in turn, will aid himself and his school. What does the above paragraph mean? Two things: first, your future is oeing decided with the passage of each day you attend law school and with eacn stroke of the pen on a final exam; second, the future of South Tex- as College of Law lies in your hands. It is difficult for an entering student or even for a first year stu- dent to understand the significance and importance of attaining the high- est grades possible and graduating from a respected law school. However, this first year is the most important year in your law school career and your future. It is during this criti- cal stage that a stud...
