¡al Advocacy College Benefits Many by Lenora C. Friend Staff Writer A new field of participation and observation in the area of Trial Advocacy seems to have opened up since South Texas College of Law hosted the Texas College of Trial Advocacy post graduate seminar, August 20-26. Coordin- ated by Dean John Ensle in cooperation with the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, lawyers from around the state, and some graduates of South Texas prac- ticing outside of the state came for a week of activities to perpetuate a new crew of con- fident, trained advocates of the law in the courtroom. For a S500 fee, attorneys participated in actual trials, with South Texas students serving in various positions as jurors, bail- iffs and witnesses. Students of several court reporting schools were on hand to give the mock trials the atmosphere of the court- room setting. Practicing judges were available to hear trials that were held throughout the week. As many as ten trials were staged daily, with partici...

Page 2 - ANNOTATIONS - September 1978 Chief Caldwell Continued from page 1 How do you view the attitudes toward the Houston Police De- partmet by the public? Is it still negative? Yes, it always will be and I will say this, that at this time, I have never seen more support for the police department than I do right now in this community. This department has undergone a great trauma, a great crisis organizationally. I think it sur- vived and came out of this trauma a better police department. I think that the majority of the citizens, and that is a cross- spectrum of this community, socially and culturally, have ex- pressed the consensus that if "you'll straighten things up, we are behind you." 1 think that we will see more and more public support for the police. I am very pleased with the support we have in the Mexican-American com- munity and the black community as well as the majority com- munity. In the past, yon had the necessity of removing certain Was there a problem the civil ...

A recent request for an LEAA grant to a local community group whose job and purpose of intent was to use LEAA monies for crime prevention to put pamphlets out in the neighbor- hood, advising students that the worst enemies they had were the police. 1 won't be surprised at all if the LEAA grants this request. What precautions have you taken to Insure there will be no strike in the Houston area? I am sure you are talking about strikes by police officers. Well, strikes by police officers in the state of Texas are forbidden and prohibited by law. I think that we need not worry about our officers striking.

Page 4 - ANNOTATIONS - September 1978 A". Advocacy Linda Addison, a Houston trial lawyer, says she entered the field because of her disposition and temperament. Addison says she found the demonstrations and lectures during the seminar out- standing. When asked about her participation in the trials, she commented, "My own participa- tion was secondary to the oppor- tunity to view other talented attorneys and note their indivi- dual styles." Experts participating in the trial advocacy seminar seemed as enthusiastic as the attorneys who came to refine their trial tech- niques. One such expert, Scotty Bald- win, considered one of the state's most profound trial lawyers in the area of products liability, had a lot of wisdom to share with the visiting attorneys during the final day of the seminar. Baldwin says he never passes up an opportunity to help, lecture or advise a student of trial advocacy. He advised the group to "try to be yourselves, be sincere, and don't advance a cause to the...

*' f September 1978 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 5 V ▼ < 4 > < Editorial A Profit At The Expense Of The American Public r> « y ~ * By Philippe Symonovicz Editorial Writer From the Model-T to the Mustang, the American public has spent billions of dollars over the past 70 years on alleged Ford quality. Not only are the words "quali- ty" and Ford no longer synony- mous, they may virtually be opposites. This being the result of a long series of products liability lawsuits. In February of this year, the largest verdict ever awarded in a single claim in the history of American litigation was handed down in the Superior Courts of Orange County in California. The verdict was $2,841,000 in com- pensatory damages and $125,000,000 in punitive dam- ages. The case was Grimshaw v. Ford Motor Co. (21ATLA L. Rep 136 1978), in which a 13-year old boy sustained burns over 90 percent of his body when the 1972 Pinto in which he was riding was struck from behind by a car traveling at 35 mph. This ca...

Every qualification we have has been validated using EEOC guidelines and standards and are related to the job for which they designed. We will, in time, be able to obtain some semblance of balance, but even the departments who have signifi- cant numbers of blacks have not been able to obtain that racial balance. I cite that Detroit and Washington, D.C. have never had anywhere near the proportion of black citizens in their department as they have in their population. Policing has not traditionally been attractive to the black youngster. Whether this ever turns around, I don't know, but I think that doesn't mean you can stop trying and I intend to keep trying. What do yon think should be done to give the policemen a more just pension plan? As it stands now, as I understand it, they most of dm plan. If they do not work for 20 years, this money wfll never get a ch...

1303 San Jacinto St. Houston, Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VII Number 4 October 1978 Battered Women: Is Help Available? by JerfH Romeo Little Staff Writer "A Wife isn't a Jug She won't crack if you hit her ten times." Russian Proverb Earlier than the period of the old testament, women, like chil- dren, in exchange for the protec- tion of the marital home, were held prisoners without remedy at the hands of a violent husband.[l] For centuries, marriage supplied the license for a cruel husband to mistreat his wife. In Wales the common law provided that a husband could beat a disrespectful wife a maximum of three strokes with a rod of the length of his forearm and the thickness of his middle finger. [2] Blackstone later recorded the English "Rule of Thumb" which referred to a husband's right to "chastise his wife with a whip or rattan no bigger than his thumb, in order to enforce the "salutory restraints of domestic disci- pline. "[3] In State v. Rhodes, 61 N.C. (Phil.) 453, 98 Am. De...

2 - ANNOTATIONS — Oetotar IV INTERVIEW Justice Ben F. Overton, Florida Supreme Court "Right to Privacy, Big Legal Issue' tf By Gerald S. Bettman Basically, the internal oper- ating procedures of most courts (appellate courts) are not pub- licised. The procedures have always been there. What we did was to make those procedures available to the lawyers so they would know exactly how cases were assigned in the court, and what the procedures of the court were as far as how opinions were voted on. I think that there are now some other courts that have also done this. It is suggested by some of the recent commentators that the appellate courts do this. There are different ways that the appellate courts do this. There are different ways that different courts arrive at the appellate decisions they are making. I think this sets out how it is done and in that context it might be helpful to lawyers in what they prepare for oral argument and in the matter of their briefing. For instance, in our...

October 1978 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 3 *1 . * • •• > Students Reject Overton Proposed Honor Code By David Dies Co-editor In the largest Student Bar Association (SBA) meeting South Texas College of Law (STCL) students can remember, held Tuesday, August 3, the proposed honor code met defeat by a vote of 48 to 46. The SBA meeting, which was open to the student body, was held to vote on the proposed honor code. Although the vote appeared close, the result was a decisive victory against the honor code. Speaking for the proposed code, Terrill Flenniken cited various sections of the old code which he stated must be revised immediately. He further argued that the majority of STCL stu- dents favor the proposed code. Flenniken cited the results of the election held July 17 and 18 in which students approved the proposed code by a vote of 167 for, 72 against. The Honor Court on August 7, 1978 held the July election to be a defeat for the proposed code by finding it to be interpreted within the ...

Snell Your perpetually peripatetic editor (he likes that word he tells me) is again hounding me for copy so here we go once more. Casting about for a current topic of general interest, I have given long and serious considera- tion to writing something that seems to be always on my mind but of interest to few students. Howsomever, I'm aggonna do it nonetheless. A continual source of wonderment to me has been the abstract and somewhat blase attitude of the majority of the STCL student body toward money and their future careers. When I by J. Bennett Kraft As many of you have doubt- lessly noticed, a subtle change comes over graduating seniors at STCL. To those among you consumed with superficialities, it appears that ennui with law school, or perhaps a somewhat giddy sense of quasi-achieve- ment, drives all dedication to our studies from our minds. You be- lieve that the graduating senior's sole motivation i...

PLACEMENT SPECIAL - Pag• I October 1978 - ANNOTATIONS — •i- Á f T Summer Clerkships The Myth and The Method There's been a lot of discussion about summer clerkships, and with that discussion, some mis- conceptions about the purpose of such formal programs, applica- tion guidelines, and where such programs are available. To begin, summer clerkship programs are tools of larger firms (with annual recruiting pro- grams), corporate legal depart- ments and Federal depart- ments/agencies. The programs are designed as a screening procedure for permanent em- ployment and as a means of allowing students to observe, in a structured situation, the practice of law in their particular setting. Formal programs offer ex- tremely competitive salaries (one major Houston oil company hiring less than 20 summer clerks nationwide is projecting a $1,300 per month salary), and, because of the demand for such positions, the requirements are just as competitive as the lucrative salaries. Students are screene...

Mr. Evans has, in the past few months, gone through this process of doing the "right" things at the "right" time. The Placement Office asked that he commit his thoughts to paper as tested advice from the student's perspective. The task of applying for and interviewing for employment as an associate with a law firm can be as arduous as the law school experience itself. The proper preparation for the interview process requires many hours of search and planning. As a result, the value of beginning one's preparation for interviewing can- not be overemphasized.

Would you concur with the Burger's opinion half of the trial This is a question that the press likes to ask and I frankly feel that it is not a fair question and I tell you why. In 1971, what Burger was primarily and principally speaking about was not trial lawyers in context of civil litiga- tion. He was speaking about trial lawyers in the context in the criminal courts. If you recall that Gideon vs. Walnwright didn't come out until 1963 and then all of a sudden you had an avalanche of cases and trials in the criminal justice system. Most people try in cases in the criminal justice system. Those representing the state and representing the de- fendant had not been practicing law for three years or less. I think the context of what he was saying at the time is the fact that, "Look, we are not doing anything in the law schools on how to train lawyers to t...

We have held fimd raising projects and any time one of us would go out and speak, we would turn over the honoraria to the fund." Just when the women were beginning to lose hope, another organization sympathetic to their goals, offered a furnished house for $250 per month and with a tenuous fund of $6,000, "The Shelter" came to life. The police and Crisis Hotline refer women to "The Shelter" which is usually full to its 11 bed capacity. A recent visit disclosed that there were about five women, six children and one newborn baby. Volunteers from the original working organization of the Hous- ton Area Women's Center work in shifts to insure that someone is available to answer the phone and administer to the women's needs. Crisis Hotline takes on the average 130 calls per month from battered women. It is not too...
