Professional Orientation Day Benefits Students The third annual professional orientation day was held at STCL on September 16, 1978. Partici- pants agreed that the sessions were well attended and interest- ing, necessitating choices be- tween areas of interest. The criminal law sessions were presented by the District Attor- ney's staff. Representing the prosecution was Ray Bass. Will E. Gray represented the defense. The District Attorneys stated that a five-year program stressing trial tactics would be helpful to any recent graduate. They noted that the starting salary was good, while being paid to learn the ins and outs of trial work. In discussing the defense side of criminal law, Bass was asked why he chose criminal law and replied that he was a musician tired of the late hours. However, he added that he still keeps late hours and meets many friends from his previous vocation. When starting in practice, Bass told of asking Racehorse Harry Haynes if he could work for him without p...

Taxaa 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VI i Number 5 November 1978 p * ■«*; * H Tk Interview With Chief Justice Joe Greenhill Judicial Reform by David Dies Co-editor During the last election for the Texas State Supreme Court and the Criminal Court of Appeals, the election of November 7, In le State the number of people ly knew who the candidates were. The results of the survey showed that only 15.4 percent of the voters could correctly name the Judicial candidates. As a result of the election, Don Yaibrough was elected. Do you feel the Texas voters are not qualified to deter- mine tiie members of die judici- ary and that a i I think the voters are qualified to cast an intelligent vote. The problem is that they are not informed. 1 am surprised that 15 percent of the people knew who the candidates were. The Constitutional Revision Commission made recommenda- tions for the change of the Constitution before the last time the legislature met as a Consti- tutional Co...

Page 2 - ANNOTATIONS — November 1978 Student Advocacy Board Hosts Mock Trials by Rudy de la Garza Staff Writer An advocacy team composed of seniors Dennis Brown, Wilton Chalker, and Dennis Jones has placed first in both the Garland Walker and STCL National Mock Trial competitions and will repre- sent South Texas in the regional National Mock Trial competition. Both competitions were conduct- ed by the Student Advocacy Board during the week of Novem- ber 6. Also representing South Texas at the regionals will be the team of Donna Askew, Jim Evans, and John Morabito, who placed second in the STCL National Mock Trial competition. The regionals will be held in New Orleans in late January. The Walker competition, a preliminary to the STCL National event, drew 23 teams this year, the largest number ever to compete in STCL Mock Trial events. This was more than double the number which entered last year. The top eight teams were allowed to compete in the STCL National. The trial in both compe...

November 1978 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 3 * ! '* f\ Greenhill back to California and campaign. It has been reported that yon support the move to confer criminal Jurisdiction upon the Civil Courts of Appeal In Tezaa. Do you think this will cause problems In that the Qvfl Appeals judges are not proficient on the Criminal Code of procedure? Well, you are saying that anybody that is appointed to the Criminal Court of Appeals is familiar with the Criminal Code of Procedure, which may not be true. The governor will make the appointment off the top of his head or for whatever reason, and he may or may not pick somebody proficient on the Criminal Code of Procedure. Criminal Procedure is not all that hard. It is not anything anybody can't learn and learn quickly. By that, I don't mean that there is no benefit to experience, because there is. The Supreme Court, for exam- ple, handles without delay mat- ters dealing with the Federal Truth in Lending Act, which did not exist until a few years ago. N...

ANNOTATIONS — November 1978 * * Women Attorneys Censor Family Law Judges by Jerill Romeo Little Staff Writer A hush fell over the room. Rumor had it there was going to be a showdown. The new gang in town was out to shoot holes through time-honored legal insti- tutions without mercy. A 12-page document of problems was nailed to the courtroom door and the guns were cocked and ready. On October 25, 1978, at Bren- nan's Restaurant, the Association of Women Attorneys set forth in a 12-page critique certain out- rageous behavior encountered in the Family Courts ranging from inconsistencies in the amount of attorney fees awarded to the practice of cursing litigants and their attorneys from the bench. Eight judges from the Family Courts were invited to respond and the reaction ranged from resentment to utter dismay. One disgruntled and overworked Jus- tice remarked that in his day a good lawyer learned his judges' idiosyncracies and lived with The women lawyers were warned that this critiqu...

November 1S78 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 6 Editorial Criminal Justice American Style or How to Protect the Criminal Against Society By Philippe Symonovicz As an American who lived in Europe for 22 years, I have always been accutely aware of the fact that America has a serious crime problem. My first real contact with the United States was a short three month stint in Boston five years ago. What a rude awakening it was. Gone were the days of being able to walk out at ail hours of the evening without the fear of being mugged or knifed. Gone too were the days when you could open your door to whomsoever knocked without checking first. But I guess what impressed me the most was the incredible number of violent crimes. Murder, rape and armed robbery were com- monplace. I heard New York was worse. Why the high crime rate? Well, that was quite understandable. What was not quite so under- standable and still isn't to me is the way in which this crime rate is dealt with. Of all the legal systems av...

Page 6 — ANNOTATIONS — November 1978 Faculty-Student Committee Seeks Student Input There is a viable committee working for the benefit of the school as a whole, while main- taining a low profile. This desire for maintaining a low profile has resulted in ambiguity as to the purpose and identity of this committee. In writing this letter our purpose is to attempt to explain the function, composition, ac- complishments, and goals of the Faculty/Student Committee of South Texas College of Law. Perhaps the best possible de- scription of the function of the committee is Article I of the Constitution of the Faculty/Stu- dent Committee. That Article reads as follows: "The committee will imple- ment student-faculty commun- ications; initiate and review poli- cies and procedures related to legal education at South Texas College of Law; study proposals on education policy and assess their possibilities and alterna- tives; present recommendations on any of the above matters to the President, SBA...

November 1978 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 7 Chief Justice Greenhill but when you get down to it, it is a very sore matter, locally. But, if we do not redistrict (and I think we should) then the only answer is to create more courts. And the legislature has created a lot of courts. It created almost SO new district courts the last time. It created 17 in Harris County. In regard to the proposal by the Sunset Committee to place examination of attorneys, licens- ing and enforcement under direct supervision of the Supreme Court, do you believe this will place too much responsibility upon the Supreme Court, and add too much of a burden? Indirectly, this is the way it is now. We select the Board of Law Examiners. We don't write the questions or grade the papers. We select the examiners and provide the guidelines. I don't think it would add any more of a burden on the Supreme Court than there now is. Referring to Art. 2 § 1 of the Texas State Constitution, where does the Supreme Court get the autho...

STCL Offers Professional Malpractice Course A seminar on professional malpractice will bs conducted this spring at South Texas. The course will be taught by Richard Cross, a former South Texas professor and now presi- dent of Insurance Corporation of America. Cross is uniquely qualified to conduct this seminar as the company he heads is America's fastest growing writer of professional liability insurance. Cross is a former honor grad- uate of South Texas. As a student, he received the dual honor of graduating number one in his class and finishing first on the Texas Bar Examination. He also holds the Silver Key of Recognition from the American Bar Association. According to Cross, the course will be a general survey of the law of professional liability with parti- cular emphasis in the legal and medical areas. The course will include both malpractice theory and an analysis of the prosecution and defense of this cause of action. Cross says this seminar should be of high interest to stu...

1303 San Jacinto St. Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VII Number 6 1979 e 4 Private Placement Adoption: In Whose Best Interests? Editor's Note: Bill Adair, a senior at STCL and a law clerk for Duane T. Corley, prepared this article for an advanced legal writing course. This is the first of a two-part series, titled "Babies and the Free Market System." In February, ethical considera- tions of the lawyer's role will be examined. by BUI Adair In recent years the availability of adoptable infants has declined dramatically. The decline is of such proportions in fact that there now exists a real shortage of adoptable infants. The shortage is attributable not only to the overall declining birth rate, but to several other factors as well, indicative of the changing mores in our society: [1] 1. Widespread acceptance of birth control. 2. * Abortion as an acceptable alternative to bearing an un- wanted child. 3. Changing attitudes with re- gard to raising one's own child out of wedlock....

Paga 2 - ANNOTATIONS - January 1979 Private Placement Adoption soon produce an adoptable infant. This is no small coincidence. These lawyers are actively en- gaged in the procurement and placing of infants for adoption, and, as a general rule, not as a result of any particular over- riding interest in finding the infant a good home. Their efforts are spurred by the inflated fees which are charged relative to such Generally there is no as to counselling or screening of the adoptive parents. The ability and desire of the adoptive parents to properly pro- vide for and rear the child is of little consequence. Likewise, minimal effort is expended in assuring that the adoption, as a whole, is in the best interests of all parties involved. What is of real significance is the ability of the adoptive parents to afford the infant. These infants, for all practical purposes, go to the highest bidder with few questions The inherent abuses, relative to such a system of placing infants in adoptive...

The next item deserving dis- cussion is the All-School picnic and Race Judicata. The actual loss, according to the figures presented, sustained by the SBA was $509.88. However, due to a mistake on my part, 1 paid the T-shirt people $156.00 too much. Accurate Silk Screens is in the process of refunding this amount to us. If we deduct this $156.00 from the loss of $509.88, we have an actual loss of $353.88. Also, we had 17 T-shirts left over from the Race Judicata at a price of $2.52 each which amounts to a total of $42.84. When this amount is deducted, our loss diminishes to $311.04. This represents just a little bit over the cost of the beer, soft drinks, ice, etc., which we had planned to purchase for the picnic. The next item deserving discussion is the monthly tele- phone bill. The only thing I have to s...

Well, I thought I'd bring this topic closer to home. Let's take a brief look at South Texas College of Law. Why would any- one want to go to law school, let alone South Texas? If you've recently been ad- mitted to South Texas, you will notice that the place may seem a bit grim at first. But then, what can you expect? It's a law school. You are not supposed to enjoy it here and believe me, South Texaá makes sure of that. The require- ments to stay in STCL are so rigid that there were times when I wondered if anyone ever gradu- ated from South Texas. I have, often prayed for deliverance. The semesters went by in slow motion; like running against a strong wind. Often, I thought time wo...

The transfusion was administered immediately and the infant's condition sta- bilized within a few days. After further observation and extensive testing it was determined that there existed no conclusive evi- dence of brain damage. The adoptive parents then reconsider- ed their initial decision and opted to take the child as planned. Upon its release, the child was taken from the hospital by lawyer Smith's secretary and delivered to the adoptive parents. The adoptive parents resided in the same small community as did the infant's natural mother. The circumstances surrounding the untimely pregnancy of Ms. Jones and the subsequent adop- tion of her unwanted baby represent, in all reality, an adoption horror story. At no point were the best interests of the infant given first priority. The inf...

Senator Mengden Proposes Sunset Bills Senator Walter Mengden, Republican from Harris County, has introduced a series of bills to make state government more responsive to the people. SJR 20 is a state constitutional amendment to require all statutory state agencies having appointed officers, except instit- utions of higher education, to automatically self-destruct every ten years. This legislation would provide that these state agencies would have a life of not moré than ten years unless renewed by law for not more than a ten-year period. Senator Mengden originated this "sunset" concept during the 1974 State Constitutional Conven- tion. Since that time, a number of states have passed sunset laws, and the 1976 Democratic National Party platform endorsed this proposal on the federal level. In the last session, the Legislature passed a statutory sunset law that was sponsored by Senator Lloyd Doggett, Democrat from Travis County. "This statutory approach is a good step in the right direc...
