Pfege 2, ANNOTATIONS, July 197S TIME FOR REFLECTION As we hasten to move into a new bulding, time must be taken to decide what we will take with us and what should be left behind. What better time than now to ask every one concerned with STCL - administrators, faculty, students, alumni, friends of the school, trustees - What is STCL? Where are we going? What should we be to better serve the legal profession and our nation? Where do we go from here? A study commission composed of adminsitrators, faculty alumni, and student representatives could gather ideas and insight to answer these questions. Two purposes would be served. We could all set aside our differences and get to know each other as friends of our fine school, and we could all contribute the best we have, our ideas, to our school's future. Currently, all the college at the University of Houston are engaged in "Mission, Self-Study." It is an idea whose time has come for all educational institutions. Such a commission's findi...

July 1975, ANNOTATIONS, Pfcfe 3 FROM THE E TOalfot I have had a number of students come to my office to express their concern over the grades in one section of Torts for the Spring Semester, 1975, and to ask questions on the procedure followed in grading at South Texas College of Law. I was equally upset with these grades when they were turned in as they were much higher than our grades normally run. Our grading policy has not been changed. When a new teacher is employed, I explain our grading system to that teacher and point out that generally the grades for the large beginning classes fall into a rough Bell curve. We know this from past experience; however, each class is individual and the grades do not necessarily fall into this exact sequence. I then suggest to the teacher that if he has any questions about this grades, he discuss them with me at the time his grades are submitted with the possibility that I might offer some suggestions as to the necessity or desirability of a cu...

Page 4, ANNOTATIONS, July 1975 ABA Section Issues Rights Guidelines By JAMES W. SKELTON, Jr. ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer Do STudent Newspapers Have First Amendment Rights? Yes, no and maybe - it just depends upon what authroity you base your answer. However, in the American Bar Association's Section of Individual Rgihts and Responsibilities Newsletter Vol. 2 No. 2 Winter/Spring 1975, appeared the currently recommended Model Guidelines for Student Publications which may resolbe the controversy. Since the Untied States Supreme Court has yet to resolve the freedom of speech issues pertaining to high school and college newspapers, the ABA Section on Free Speech and Press requested the ABA Section Counsil on Individual Rgihts and Responsibilities to recommend adoption of the Model Guidelines for Student Publications, drafted by the Student Press Law Center. The basic provisions of the guidelines are as follows: BASIC RIGHT - "Student publications may NOT be subjected to prior restrains or c...

July 1975, ANNOTATIONS, Page 5 Justice Backs Free Press Guarantee CHICAGO — The constitutional guarantee of a free press goes beyond freedom of expression, and "the publishing business is, in short, the only organized private business that is given explicit constutitional protection," according to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart. In a bylined article in Barrister magazine, Justice Stewart said the court, in a series of recent rulings, "uniformly reflected its understanding that the free press guarantee is, in essence, a structural provision of the Constitution." Barrister is a quarterly publication of the American Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section. "Most of the other provisions of the Bill of Rights protect specific liberties or specific rights of individuals: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, the right to counsel, the privilege against complusory self-incrimination," the Justice argued. "In contrast, the free press clause extends protection to an institution." ...

P*ge 6, ANNOTAIONS, July 197S Rob Hopper QUARE Dear R.H.: I have been here for five semesters and have yet to see Remedies offered though the school catalogue lists it as a required course in lieu of Equity. I realize that Equity is a remedies course. However, I can't help but deplore the fact that the STCL catalogue lists Remedies semester after sem- ester and yet doesn't offer it. Besides, I feel I may be missing something. You act like you know everything, so I thought you might know why this course is never offered. In Need Of Enlightenment Dear In-Need: You're not missing a thing; at least with respect to remedies. With a few notable exceptions, there are essentially TWO courses offered here - Procedure and Remedies. They appear throughout the course catalogue under such diverse and unlikely rubrics as "Corporations," "Agency and Partnership," "Insurance," "Per- sonal Property," and "Family Law". And, as you might expect, this phenomenon holds more than a modicum of surprise fo...

Rich Bensick will be the first Chief Justice under the Honor Code. Bensick commented the Chief Justice occupies a more limited capacity under this ct^de than he did under the previous code. The Chief Justice is now limited to ruling on motions and objections. This new code will allow the 2 Associate Justices a more objective view point. The Chief Justice observed the code has certain weaknesses, but overall it is a fair and just code. Our new Chief Justice attended Colorado State. He holds a position as a Briefing Clerk at Fulbright and Jaworski in the Labor Law section. Upon graduation, Bensick Assistant Dean of South Texas College of Law Dr. John F.

<1 * « «<> Finance STCL's First Concern, Cook Says Cecfl N.Cook By TERRY WYRICK and CAROLYN WHITTINGTON ANNOTATIONS Staff Writers Cecil N. Cook, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at South Texas College of Law, has prepared a letter about the topic of merger of the school with a college or university. It is to be mailed to all alumni and he has given a copy of it to the Annotations for publication so that students may have an insight into the Board's feelings on the matter. Excerpts are printed in the Editorial Column. Cook also granted an interview to give the paper some of his thoughts for publication on subjects ranging from the new building to recruiting at his firm, Butler, Binion, Rice, Cook & Knapp. Richard Allen, head of public relations at South Texas, was also present at the interview. Construction of the new building will be finished before the end of the year, Cook said, but the building will not be in full operation for 30-60 days after it is delivered. One ...

2, ANNOTATIONS, August 1975 EOT The following letters are directed primarily at the alumni. But they are also for students, who are the future alumni. Both letters, we think, reflect pride in STCL. Many students and recent alumni know the truth - their legal education and personal capability is second to none. We must shake off the persistent feelings and expressions of inferiority. We know the inferior night-school myth is real in the minds of many employers - and in too many student, alumni, faculty and administrators. We say AMEN to the Honorable Cecil Cook when he says we can expect "continued improvement." The problem is real, and must be faced squarely. Ignoring our image won't improve it. President's Report TO ALL ALUMNI: For many months now, rumors have circulated regarding the possible merger of South Texas College of Law with other educational institutions. Various schools have been named as parties to such mergers. The most recent instance of merger speculation occurred w...

Trustee Talks About STCL Continued from Page 1 has been a member of the Board of Trustees, a membership which dates back to the days when the school held classes in the YMCA building. Questions about more afternoon classes have not been raised either. "This is worked out by the faculty and presented to the Board of Trustees for approval," Cook said. He anticipates the next Board meeting to be in December, the regularly scheduled annual meeting. 'The entire Board usually meets twice a year, but there is only one required meeting, the first week of December," Cook said. If there are problems, a special meeting is called. A problem than confronted the Board at its last meeting was the question of a student liaison. "The president and vice-president of the Student Bar Association came to my office and I told them a liaison was fine," Cook said. ',There are very few policy matters that we need a student but I told them I would be willing to talk to a student liaison. They didn't mention ...

Also, the faculty might make the night students feel inferior as many would rather teach during the day and have the nighttime ftee. Q: Are there established criteria for qualifications for an attorney to teach a course here at STCL? A: Yes. Consideration is given to the type of practice he has established, and the amount of work he has done in a particular area. Consideration is also given to his past teaching background. (The Dean will not audit a course because he feels that this is an ineffective way to adequately judge a teacher's ability in the classroom.) Q: Why doesn't STCL seek out student evaluation of its professors? A: This would be of no great value. Beginning students cannot compare a professor's teaching ability. Also, many students base their evaluation upon the personality of the professor rather than his teaching qualifications. TJ: Why d...

Pife 2 ANNOTATIONS October 1975 SBA President's Report UP THE LIBRARY South Texas College of Law budgeted $71,000 exclusive of salaries for the library in 1974-75. Twenty-four of 158 ABA-approved schools budgeted less - including Baylor and St. Mary's in Texas. But the trend is to higher costs. The real reason is inflation. The Rice University library has recently reduced its subscriptions for legal materials, especially journals, because of the sharp increases in subscription rates. But law schools can't cut back, they must bite the bullet and pay through the nose. Most students, and indeed most lawyers, measure a law school by ito faculty and its library. The library is most important - anyone can walk through the door and make their own decision ... no one likes a skimpy-looking library. Our library, while it has grown tremendously since the dark days ot the early '60s, is still inadequate. We need some duplicate sets of very expensive materials like Shepard's Citations. There ar...

Quiet in the library. The PADs had spent several weeks practicing for the all-important game and had risen at the break of dawn for a final practice session. The Delts arose at the break of noon after another hard night at Possum's, their training headquarters. The Delts were firm believers in a carbohydrate diet. The two teams were dressed for combat. The PADs had arrived in morning coats, striped pants, wing collars, top hats and stuffed shirts. The Delts appeared in Lone Star tank tops in the school colors of green and gold. The two teams had both agreed to let Judge Bell officiate the game. The Delts saw no need to have an official because after all, we are law students, but the PADs contended that even a hint of impropriety should be avoided. Jim Jordan was chosen to flip the coin because of...

Page 8 ANNOTATIONS October 1975 STCL Library Ranks Above 85 Schools Continued from Page 1 years was that only $4000 was spent during the last year for non-book materials, a decrease of approximately $20,000. Dean Walker indicated that the 1975-76 budget would be roughly the same as last year with no more than a $10,000 increase, if that much. The total library budget for 1975-76 including salaries will be $140,000, he said. "We have no major library expansion plans as of yet," Walker said. "We're going to have to get the new building paid for first. But from time to time we have special projects which include the library, and of course we get a certain amount of material from donations." According to Thompson, the number of volumes added will decrease each year. "We are getting fewer each year because of inflation. So it's absolutely essential that we continue to get donations if we hope to get many more books," she added. One fact the survey did not indicate, and which may be misle...
