Take enough hours so that you can feasibly bring yourself above the required 70 average. Balance your courseload so there are some light courses, even if you get into a problem with the 40-hour rule on taking required courses. • The school does not make a grade calculation at the end of a summer session. This will give you two semesters to bring your average up. We did this because students avoided the summ...

March 1979 - ANNOTATIONS — P«fl* 8 Editorial <+1 'i > The Bar Exam—an exercise in futility :r % ■ * ♦> % • * * * 4* "* by Philippe Symonovicz Editorial Writer There is a place in New Jersey known as Princeton. Princeton is not just a place, it has been endowed with a divine right. It is there that a handful of computers (of human origin we know not) take it upon themselves to decide which of the great unwashed will be allowed to practice law, medicine, dentistry and who knows what other godforsaken profession. It's actually frightening. The population of this country has its futures decided by exams not conceived on the basis of personal aptitude toward a chosen profes- sion, but based upon methods which defy machiavelia. To serve the needs of American society, Princeton unleashed upon us its enfant terrible; the "standardized exam." The very phrase leaves a sterile taste in one's mouth. The standardized exam is a totally inadequate method of testing one's aptitude for a gi...

Pag 6 — ANNOTATIONS - March 1979 Judge Joe Kegans Continued from page 3 after that. And there's a bunch of things that can be done after that. I haven't seen one of them do it right yet. You're known as an expert in juvenile law. I wrote a book on juvenile law four years ago. (1) The Juvenile Code has changed, and (2) I haven't paid any attention to the juvenile code in the last two years. I've got enough troubles keeping up with the Penal Code. But it hasn't changed in some things. And that's the very thing I'm talking about. There's just a whole bunch of things that lawyers could do after a juvenile certification and just flat don't do. Give me some examples. All right. They give notice of appeal on the juvenile case to the Court of Civil Appeals. Then they come on over here to the criminal courts. And lawyers just sit on their laurels and let the criminal court proceed with the examining trial, and proceed with the indictment and proceed with the trial. They don't need to do that...

P«S® 2 ~~ AN,NOTATtONS - April, 1979 Alumni Program Has Positive Beginning by Gerald S. Co-Editor The success of the monthly South Texas College of Law alumni luncheons has been so great lately that members of the alumni association are hoping that this may be indicative of the future strength of the organiza- tion. "We're hoping to build toward a complete network similar to that of the 'ole boy network' which exists in the Ivy League law schools," said Patricia Lykos, president of the STCL Alumni Association. The "ole boy network" Lykos explained is a system maintained by graduates of an Ivy League school in which graduates may refer cases to other alumni in all sections of the country. Lykos, maintaining that active members of the organization are more than 500, believes that the alumni organization will soon be publishing a directory listing all the graduates of STCL by name, location, and specialty. "The speaker's program has been a positive beginning in developing a close knit ...

The committee was formed after Corrine complained of the number of tickets that she, and other students, were receiving from the meter maids. Corrine listed the following as the accomplishments of the com- mittee: 1) the tow-away zone that existed on Polk Street from the hours of 4 to 6 p.m. was eliminated between the cross streets of San Jacinto and Char- tres; 2) the one hour meters on San Jacinto in front of the South- western Bell Building were con- verted to two hour meters; and 3) two hour meters were placed on Caroline in back of the South- western Bell Building in what was previously free parking. Corrine said, "The major bene- fit to placement of two hour meters on Caroliine has been that it allows STCL students with early afternoon classes to find...

These on-campus contests shared attention with the National Appellate Advocacy competition April 6-7 in New Orleans, where the STCL team of Neal Hirsch- feld, Ross Rayburn, and Jan Jircik placed third in a field of eight teams from this region. The teams argued both sides of the question, a constitutional issue concerning organ transplants from incompetents. Oaks and Price survived a week of double-elimination competition involving 40 STCL teams winning the intra-school Spurgeon Bell contest.

6 - ANNOTATIONS — April 1979 Texas Speedy Trial Act Continued from page 5 "A Court shall grant a Motion to set aside an indictment, in- formation, or complaint if the state is not ready for trial within: (1) 120 days from the com- mencement of the criminal action on a felony (2) 90 days from the com- mencement of the criminal action on a Class A Misdemeanor (or DWI) (3) 60 days from the com- mencement of the criminal action on a Gass B Misdemeanor (4) 30 days from the com- mencement of the criminal action on a Class C Misdemeanor."[18] This section, obviously, in stern language, lets a prosecuting attorney know that he must prepare to go to trial within the express length of time or the court will discharge the defend- ant. This puts a new and burden- some pressure on criminal attor- neys. The words "state" and "ready" are both subject to further interpretation. On the one hand, "state" may indicate the prosecuting attorney. However, it is more reasonable that the word "state" also ...

I •v a client. If that client could show that he did not knowledgeably consent to this waiver of his con- stitutional right to a speedy trial,[44] or that he was coerced by his attorney to sign it, he might be able to connect the failure of this fundamental right with the fact that he was found guilty. One of his witnesses could die, or leave the jurisdiction, or forget some pertinent fact that would have aided his defense. He might show that the mental anxiety he suffered prior to trial was damaging. One interest of the defendant is "his interest against overlong subjection to the vexations and vicissitudes of a pending criminal accusation: anxiety, heightened vulnerability to the displeasure of public officials and private blackmailers, restrictions upon- ...

1303 San Jacinto St. ANNOTATIONS Houston. Texas 77002 V.lum.Vlil NumbsM August 1979 Survival: It's simple when you know your way around • by Phillip Patrick Survival in downtown Houston. Impossible? No, it only seems that way. The adaptable law student, like a chameleon in a garden, will learn to change his ways to suit his surroundings and feel comfortable and secure. In fact, there are many things in downtown Houston that can make the experience of attending law school in a downtown setting pleasant and convenient. Parking This is the number one prob- lem. There is practically no free parking in downtown Houston during the day, although after about 5:30 the meter-checkers and police generally stop writing parking tickets. They're too busy passing out tickets for moving violations. However, beware of parking in-a zone that says "No Parking" during certain times of the day; the city is very firm about enforcing this, and almost any working day you can see wreckers towing cars away f...

2 - ANNOTATIONS - August 1979 Help is at hand in the Placement Office by Peggy Fa Welcome, new students! With the countless professors, offices and procedures you will be learning during these first few weeks in school, I will take only a brief portion of your time to introduce you to the Placement Office and its procedures. The Placement office — the nerve center for help with finding jobs, gaining experience, and narrowing down career choices. To begin, the office deals with the entire spectrum of legal employers — government, cor- porate, and private — in cul- tivating the listing of job oppor- tunities for both students and graduates. As a student, you will be able to gain first-hand know- ledge of the day-to-day practice of law by clerking (for experience and pay), or by interning (for experience, pay and academic credit, under a third-year stu- dent program coordinated through Dean John Ensle's of- fice). These jobs are not only helpful in making career choices, they provide i...

August 1979 - ANNOTATIONS -4- ñ i- M ^Moot court, mock trials develop important skills by John Gemían Beginning once again this fall, the Student Advocacy Board of STCL will offer a program giving students the opportunity to take part in a broad range of competi- tions designed to develop skills in research, brief writing and oral advocacy. For students, from the new- comer to the blase senior, partici- pation in these competitions can be among the most rewarding and stimulating experiences of the years spent in law school. Not only are these contests valuable in that they give the participant confidence in his ability to communicate his ideas, but they are also of significant importance in enhancing job opportunities. The competitions at South Texas are coordinated by the Student Advocacy Board, headed this year by Tom Hamblin, president; Sue Ann Ray, vice- president; and Ross Rayburn, secretary-treasurer. The program is designed to benefit both the students with prior advocacy exp...
