Nunnally, after being named all Southwest Con- ference as a defensive end at Texas, received his LLB with honors from the University of Texas Law School in 1968. by Gerald S. Bettman Co-Editor Mr. Nunnally, you are known i. Is to be mad at you for any reason. If you are going to be a successful lawyer, I think you need the type of personality that encourages a jury to like you at least in the presentation of your case. What are some of the dif- ferences you've discovered be- tween plaintiffs' attorneys and attorneys for the defense in civil In civil I appreciate the compliment.

PiQ« 2 - ANNOTATIONS - February 1979 Private Placement Adoption This is the second of a two-part series, titled "Babies and the Free Market System," considering the ethical considerations of the lawyer's rede. Bill Adair is a senior at STCL and a law clerk for Duane T. Coriey. He prepared this article for an advanced legal writing course. The lawyer plays a very signifi- cant role in the adoption process. This holds true in the case of either agency or private adop- tions. In an agency adoption both the agency and the adoptive parents will generally be repre- sented by counsel. This arrange- ment as such presents no particu- lar problems, ethical or other- wise, for the lawyer. The lawyers involved will simply represent the interests of their respective clients to the full extent of their Private adoptions, to the con- trary, may present the lawyer with numerous questions of an ethical nature.[i8] Ethical ques- tions and/or considerations are particularly prevalent with re- spect to...

LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS The Texas Legislature has enacted various statutes which may be applied directly to the role of the lawyer in the adoption process. The intent of the legisla- ture being to limit and regulate the placing of children by anyone other than a natural parent. The State Department of Public Wel- fare (renamed Department of Human Resources in 1977) under the provisions of Article 695c, Section 8a, Sub-section 2(c),[28] is charged with the responsibility of licensing and regulating child placement agencies. The provi- sions of Article 695c, Section 8a, Sub-section 1(f),[29] define a "child placing activity." Within the provisions of the Act may be found the only designated excep- tions whereby a person, other than a natural parent, may place a child for adoption. A reading of the provisions of Article 695c prompts the obvious conclusion that a lawyer cannot pla...

Pag 4 — ANNOTATIONS - February 1979 Nunnally: 'Defense must overcome bias' * Continued from page 1 I have heard yon referred to aa the master of voir dire. Daring your voir dire examination, what Mad of person are yon looking for to make np a Jury which wffl not jmnp on the bandwagon for the Utile gay, or root for the wader dog, as yea aay? You've got to remember in the federal courts in the southern district of Texas and throughout most of the United States you have a very limited voir dire, so a voir dire is not effectively used by the plaintiff or the defendant. But certainly in a state court in Texas, I find the voir dire examination to be one of the most important times for the defendant in a lawsuit. It gives you a first chance to sell your story to a jury. In my estimation the voir dire examination is more than just picking the jury. It is more than choosing people who you want to decide the case. Probably we'd all do just about as well in taking 12 people out of a hat. There...

February 1979 - ANNOTATIONS jr ♦ "H * r: # Ü1 > ** A Knox Nunnally discusses Civil litigation there's lots of other reasons that can be causing the physical problems they're claiming. So I'd say I always try to acquire all of the medical records on someone in a personal injury case. I always try to get the records of the family physician, because that's a per- son who has seen the plaintiff over a long period of time. You might find there are other com- plaints that were consistent prior to the accident the plaintiff is claiming was brought about be- cause of the accident. I think, you should take all of the adequate depositions to find out what's happening, but any good trial lawyer does that. I think it's just what you do with the material after you have it. I know for myself I'm not smart enough to remember everything in all my records, all the depositions, all the medical records, so I try to use law clerks to summarize all the depositions and to summarize the medical records...

Pag* « - ANNOTATIONS - Fatmwry 1978 Jones moves to State Senate Assistant Dsan Eugene Jonas begins hemophiliacs, to the bill now being sponsored by Sen. Jones to abolish the present rape laws and substitute assault or aggravated assault charges, with the aim of gaining convictions without the attendant embarrassment to the victim. Another important bill spon- sored by Sen. Jones, a proposed toughening of child-abuse laws, was drafted by a STCL student, Joan Anderson, for her legislation • class last fall. The present law requires for prosecution serious bodily injury to a child. The proposed bill would change this requirement to "a heinous act that results in disfigurement or impairment," making it a second degree felony when done with intent, and a misdemeanor if done negligently or carelessly. Other bills issuing from Jones' office include one to move original jurisdiction for the set- ting of electricity rates in all cases to the Public Utility Commission, on grounds that many ci...

Jan Jircik, senior law student, was appointed to be the next Chief Justice of the Honor Court. The Honor Court presides over hearings involving violations of die school's Honor Code. The new chief justice appointed Douglas Selwyn and Mike Eche- varría as his associate justices. Pam Johnson will be the clerk and Joe Messa will be the bailiff. "I would like to see certain portions of the Honor Code clarified," said Jircik, "particu- larly in regards to pre-trial hearings." Part of the controver- sy over the last trial was that the three justices presided over the pre-trial hearing as well as the trial. Jircik plans to use one of the associates for the pre-trial matter and this person would not further participate in the trial. "Our greater duty lies toward the individual on trial — to give J.

Well we now have a modern day counterpart of the "man bites dog" story on two separate fronts in the law today, and very inter- esting cases they^re indeed.

They're hired guns, so to speak. That's how they're characterized by the lawyers who deal with them. Most of the people are very honest, very reputable and trying to be fair in the way that their judgment might be that they've got for sale. You've got to remember that anybody who holds himself out as an expert witness has something to sell and that's an opinion. As a result, when you're selling an opinion, many times the opinion that you have to sell causes you to become an adversary along with one of the lawyers involved. I'm talking primarily about the experts of the type who talk about engineering problems and that sort of thing, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and metallurgists — people of that type background who'll testify that a product is defective or t...

Senior Senators SUZZEKORNBUT I seek the office of Senior Senator in order to represent the part time student who attends South Texas College of Law. I have worked during my enrollment at South Texas Col- lege for the last two years, and am familiar with the concerns of the part time student relative to parking problems and little or no voice in our student government. I plan to actively seek the involve- ment of other part time students in the planning of activities relative to our needs. I do not plan to work next year; therefore, I will have the time to become active in the student body and to serve as your representa- tive. Your support will be greatly appreciated.
