November, 1*76, Annotations, Page 2 EDITORIAL SBA President's Report At last, something to cause as much fervor as a football team has arrived at South Texas and the student body is "fired up," or maybe they're "burned up." ATLA, The American Trial Lawyers Association, has a newly formed student chapter at South Texas, and therein lies the problem. The membership is limited to those who signed up during an initial period this summer or who have taken some clinical course or participated in moot court or mock trial programs. Its stated function is to help students become better trial lawyers, and members pay heavily for the costs — dues are $20. A series of speakers has appeared before members, and seminars have been offered to them. One seminar coming up is open to all students, printed material included, but most of the programs are for members only. Many students including ATLA members find the exclusion of non-members a hard thing to take and feel it promotes a feeling of exclusi...

November, rot, Awwtitlem, Paye 4 Jones Builds Houston (Continued from Pag* 1) of who would construct any such list though, the name Jesse H. Jones would without doubt command a top ranking among any listing of the "makers" of Houston. Although the activities and accomplishments of Jesse Jones in the private sector could easily be said to equal his successes in the public sector, it is perhaps the latter for which he is best remembered by most people. The first major national office Jones held was in 1917 when Woodrow Wilson appointed him Director General of the Department of Military Relief of the American Red Cross and as a Member of the Red Cross War Council, a high level agency set up after World War I to aid military men in recuperating from injuries received in the war. It was Woodrow Wilson who influenced Jones' political philosophy and encouraged his interest in public service. After Herbert Hoover became President, he appointed Jones a member of the Reconstruction Finance Co...

K t i ? 4 ' -4 Fifty Reasons For Attendance At Law School Reprinted from Res Gestae, University of Michigan Law School By Crusader Rabbit Now that we have entered the second month of the law school year, a sobering thought is slowly dawning over most of us — namely, why the hell are we all here in law school? For those who are in need of a quick answer or two, the following list is provided as a public service: 1. To burn up some more of your parents' money. 2. To burn up some more of your own money. 3. To sink your parents fur- ther into debt. 4. To sink yourself further into debt. 5. To avoid having to look for a job and not finding one. 6. To avoid having to look for a job and finding one. 7. Because going to school is the only thing you know how to do. 8. Because you have an allergy to sunlight and must stay indoors all day. 9. Because you want to make a lot of money. 10. Because your father's law firm needs a new junior part- ner. 11. Because your parents want you to go t...

Ntvtmbtr, W4, Annotations, Page t New Catalogue Contains Changes Which Affect Entering Student Women in Law Accomplish Goals, Set Elections The 1978-77 STCL Catalogue contains two important rule changes which affect only the students who started school in the fall semester. Those who started school in September will have to earn 90 hours of credit for graduation. The requirement was raised from 86 hours to increase the body of law to which a student is exposed. According to Assistant Dean John Ensle the change will upgrade the legal education by encouraging students to take more than the essential bar courses. The second change has a more immediate effect. All new students must take the following courses during the first 40 hours: Contracts, Criminal Law I, Legal Research & Writing, Personal Property, Procedure I, Real Properly I, Torts and Wills. These courses total 27 hours of credit. Also, in the past, upper classmen have often left some of these courses to the end of their a...

The most recent oc- cupational projections from the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) confirm that the market for new lawyers is indeed stronger than their earlier projections had indicated. In a survey conducted in February this year of 112 ABA approved law schools, NALP found that over 91 percent of the responding graduates in the class of 1975 from those schools reported employment in law related positions. Seven percent were still seeking positions when the survey was conducte...

Page 2, Annotations, December, 1976 Editorials SBA President's Report Teacher Evaluations have been delivered by the Faculty-Student Committee. After grades are turned in, one copy of each evaluation goes to the professor, and one copy to the Dean. They won't be available in book form for students who are always seeking the funniest or easiest professor, but hopefully they will accomplish a much more practical result. Dean Walker will now be aware of student attitudes toward professors that he is sometime ignorant of merely because the student is afraid to talk to the Dean or fears a bad grade if anything is said before the semester ends, and once the semester is over, why bother? There is a lot of talk around school about certain professors that the Dean was surprised to hear about because no one had gone to him. Students were merely complaining to other students. Now the complaints will go to the man who has authority to do something about the problems. And the evaluations will do...

Page 4, Annotations, December, 1976 Phi Alpha Delta PAD has once again broken the laugh barrier. The fall semester has seen Mock Trials with attorneys from the Harris County District Attorney's Office and STCL students (PAD members): playing the roles of Mr. Prosecutor and poor maligned porno peddlers. At this time thanks go out to Cynthia Kent for her purveying of the film classic DEEP THROAT, which was most stimulating; and to Bill Sheetz who portrayed the porno ped- dler as if he were born for the job (Bill should have won an Oscar). Other PAD events included, how to close a real estate transaction, speakers from the Federal Public Defenders Office, a lecture on the mode Women Women in Law will be selling T-shirts with the South Texas logo on them. The shirts will be available in navy, pale blue and maroon, and in medium and large sizes. Proceeds from the sale will go toward expenses for the organization and to assist women who, plan to attend the Eighth National Conference on Wo...

•fc-W , lf77 Editorials It may not be spring, but it is the spring semester and changes are happening at STCL. ATLA, the American Trial Latfyers Association, has elected new officers and has opened meetings to non-members, (see related story) The Election Code is being revised to correct many of the problems which occurred last year and prevent future ambiguities. James Horvath and Milton Wyrick are working hard to get this finished before elections next month. Graduation will be held at STCL this year, in two groups, with a reception held to honor both sets of graduates. With the upcoming elections, now is the time for students to put in their suggestions for changes to occur in the future. Even before students file for office, they should be getting input from others about what changes are wanted at school, and which seem the most important. Proposals by candidates that reflect a broad base of the student body are more apt to be pushed after election than some idea dreamed up stri...

P«9* 4 Annotations, February, 1977 Consumer Fraud Theme Of Planned Symposium Consumer fraud is the theme chosen for the March 5th symposium sponsored by Women in Law. The sym- posium, to be held at STCL on a Saturday, will include speakers and panel discussions. The Law Student Division of the American Bar Association has given a grant to aid in financing the symposium and the program promises to be of great interest to law students, lawyers and the general public. Program coordinators are Patti Payne and Jean Hudson. More information will be available at a later date.

Click Three Vie For President Erskine No one individual can radi- cally alter or change student government by getting elected. I would be less than honest if I said I could. But, I do have a few suggestions that I believe will add to the overall learning ex- perience for those students who want to participate. One program I am working on now is to establish a legal services program for the elderly, assisted by students from South Texas College of Law. Funds are available for such programs from the Federal Government. It only requires a number of individuals to set down a pro- posal and apply for funds.

*V ¡Mi 1177 Editorials Letter To The Editor Last year only about half of the students voted for SBA officers in the election. While the SBA will not give tax rebates or raise the cost of fuel, the Board of Governors does have some impact upon every student Part of registration fees each semester go to the SBA. $5 a semester is not a lot when compared with the hundreds spent on tuition, but it can add up. Of the $5, three goes into a special fund for the Spring Banquet. The other $2 goes into the SBA generel fund. Money is a good reason to be concerned with who is on the Board of Governors. The SBA also represents the voice of the student body to the Dean, and he listens. Any student may individually approach the Dean on any subject concerning the school, and will find a receptive audience. But few do, feeling that the SBA can somehow do it better. If you are concerned about things that happen at STCL and which relate to you, your schooling and your future, you should care about the ...

As soon as Xerox finishes its credit check of the SBA, the contract can be signed, and the machine which has been selected can be installed. Students will have the use of a Xerox copier instead of the Saxon. Erskine continued from page 1 Whether some of you know it or not the SBA president re- ceives a free parking space dur- ing his term. I would like to raffle this spot off to the student body and the winner would use this space free of charge for a set time. After that period of time it could be raffled off again. The proceeds from this raffle could be used to provide a free phone for the student body and pos- sibly free coffee, or programs as the student body sees fit. Programs alone, however, are not enough. A program can only be as dynamic and effective as those students who are willing to put t...

«77 Phillip Bozzo, Jr. Kanneth Alan Davis Patti Payne Vice President's Race Draws Three Traditionally, South Texas Collage of Law student govern- ment has been controlled by those people who do not vote, rather than by those who do. And in large part, "your" student officials have responded accordingly. They aimed their sights at those things that were not directly and immediately beneficial to the student com- munity. Ostensibly, their efforts were intended to reap greater respect and dignity for the school. Those efforts were fine perhaps, for they were in keeping with the administration's push for ex- cellence and the students' gen- eral lack of concern for tangible benefits. But the complexion of the student body has changed and is continuing to change; as a result, the matters of prime importance no longer lay exclusively outside the1 "domestic life" of the law school. Today I announced for vice- president of the SBA. It is time student government, while con- tinuing to project...
