Page * ANNOTATIONS November lt75 EDITORIALS SBA President's Report *■ *► ON BEING BETTER ANNOTATIONS is on "hard times" - you may notice that this issue is small and late. For that the staff must take the blame, but our answer is, "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." In the past years, ANNOTATIONS has drawn heavily on the student who was dissatisfied with the system and wanted to carp about it. But times have changed! No one wants to complain anymore - perhaps the tight job market has turned on the pressure to make the top grade - perhaps the new, better-quality (or at least full-time) student has changed the mood around the old downtown school - perhaps the "new" downtown school (or monumental face-lift) has given us all new directions — whatever the cause, the result is the same. FOR THE PAST TWO SEMESTERS NO FRESHMAN STUDENTS HAVE JOINED THE ANNOTATIONS STAFF. This is apathy. What good is a student newspaper without students to run it? We could have a "student" news...

Page 2 ANNOTATIONS December 1975 EDITORIALS Guest Editorials Next Spring During the SBA campaign last spring, presidential candidates were asked if they planned to stay at school for the full term of the office. Perhaps in the future all candidates should be asked if they will make that commitment. Randy Stout has resigned as Senior Senator because of graduation, something that could have been foreseen last spring. Brian Davis missed the summer session. SBA officers serve, often long hours, without pay. It is a service to the school and the ego. But it somehow seems not quite right to run for an office knowing that there is no intention of serving the full term. Randy has done a lot of work on the Speakers Program and his replacement, Bob Rejent, has long worked for the SBA and merits the appointment to the vacancy, but students should know when they elect someone, that the person will be there for the year, not two out of three semesters. Next spring, ask the candidates what their ...

To be eligible the student must have completed 60 hours, and it is essential that the at- torney for whom he will intern be qualified under the Law Intern Act.

That comes by doing and by watching, according to A. Frank Smith, the managing partner of the Houston law firm of Vinson, Elkins, Searls, Connally and Smith. Smith states that one looks for the same qualities in a senior law student or a new attorney that one looks for when making the decision to make an attorney a partner of the firm, or that the cor- porate executive looks for in making the decision to promote a corporate officer to a key position. The most important attribute, one that Smith assumes is present in the law student, is integrity. Of course, that is difficult to ascertain during a relatively brief interview, and must be perceived while working with the man or woman in the practice of law o...

2, ANNOTATIONS Fatewy 1*7* EDITORIALS More Open Government Hie STCL Student Bar Association constitution is archaic. It is a sort of oligarchy based on a once-a-year election. We are such a small community, what do we need with a top-heavy government-by-committee which causes, by it's nature, divisiveness and misunderstanding among friends? We could do much better with a simple New England Town Meeting. Everyone who has ever attended an SBA meeting knows what a farce really is. Shakespeare could have had no better subject for comedy. The current production — (no offense meant to the actors) — also has all the best characteristics of a TV soap opera — TUNE IN NEXT WEEK FOR THE SEQUEL. More Unity Of Effort We are here at Law school to learn the law. But we need to learn to do it together. So what if the pressure is high to suceed. So what if you aren't in the top two per cent.

February 197é ANNOTATIONS SB A Names New Justice—Sets Election By NANCY WRANITZKY ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer The Student Bar Association held the first meeting of the new semester. The main business conducted was the election of Bruce Abraham to fill the post of Honor Court Justice left vacant by the graduation of Rick Bensik. Several amendments to the election code were also discussed. Bruce Abraham was elected as Honor Court Justice by a secret ballot vote of the S.B.A. board of governors. Over objections, Sam George. S.B.A. President, ruled that only six of the eight board of governors present could vote. The other two board members were in contention for the office and were thus prohibited from casting votes in the initial balloting. Abraham was elected from a filed of five students who had filed applications. The other candidates were Bruce Anderson, Holly Crampton, Carolyn Garcia and Kathy McGraw. The primary responsibility of Honor Court Justice is to preside at any hearing of ...

It is part of being a lawyer to sound off for your cause. We hope you will do it here. P02NT: Plagiarism isa serious offence — worthy of a serious penalty.

Much Plagiarism Excapes Detection Continued from Page 1 another publication will go undetected by the professor, and even earn a high mark for the plagiarist, he said. Goldstein also emphasized the difficulty in disc-overing plagiarism. He said he came within a half-hour of completing the papers when he discovered that a page of two students papers were identical. They had copied from the same law journal article. He then went back to the library and researched the other articles to discover the other three copied papers. What needs to be done to protect the students from their fellows who would destroy the reputation of the school by cheating? Is the honor code the answer? Goldstein says the professors must be the ones to solve the problem — by going to the library and researching the papers. He says it really does not take much time, considering how easy seminar classes are to teach. He believes the only papers which should be failed for plagiarism are the totally copied or paraph...
