Pag* 6 — ANNOTATIONS — August 1979 The first day is not necessarily the hardest by Phillip Patrick My first day in law school? Some of the images in my memory are still as clear as if they had only happened yesterday. Others have faded, perhaps re- shaped themselves, in accordance with my experiences since that day. How does one tell the difference? Does it matter any- way? Regardless, here are my recollections.

1303 San Jacinto St. Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume VIII Number 2 j*egtemberJ97^ 'Yes, Virginia, there is an Honor Code' by John Davis and Jo Ann Ottis ofc. One of the most important yet least understood mandates of our law school is the Honor Code that all students at South Texas College of Law are bound by. Every student who registers to attend classes at STCL consents to be a member of the Student Bar Association and to be gov- erned by the Honor Code adopted by the SBA and the school administration. The student is charged with knowledge of all provisions of the Code whether or not he or she has actually read it. Every student should obtain a copy of the Code and be familiar with it. A copy is available to all students upon initial registration at STCL. A copy is also posted in the SBA office, and a copy is available to any student upon request. The purpose of the Code, as stated therein, is "to establish the rules by which the students at STCL shall govern their conduct...

y- v September 1979 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 by Steve Mescall Staff Writer impotence of personality in the With a little help from his friends and constant prodding from Harry "Cardiac" Kelso, Dean John Ensle produced a successful second annual Texas College of Trial Advocacy, hosted by South Texas College of Law the last week in August during the summer break. Student support for the pro- gram was excellent, with more than 100 student participants being selected from over 250 applicants. Without this student support the program would not function, according to Dean Ensle. Planning for this year's college began last winter, with staff assistants being organized in the spring. This year's program was highlighted by a luncheon at the Petroleum Club, where former Texas Atty.-Gen. John Hill spoke on jury argument. An additional bonus for the attorney partici- pants was a dinner at the Barvarian Gardens. Several stu- dents from each area of the program were invited to attend the dinner. Th...

September 1979 - ANNOTATIONS — Page 7 i A T T * x •f I Attorney's role significant during lineup by Nick Pagano Staff Writer (The author of this article is a law student who is a veteran of many years of police work.) "Is this the man you saw at the scene of the crime?" This is the critical question asked of an eyewitness after a suspect is in police custody and is placed in a lineup. In police work, the lineup is used as a means of gathering evidence as to whether or not a suspect is guilty of a crime, by placing him among seven to 12 similar-looking indivi- duals and attempting to have an eyewitness identify the suspect as the actual culprit. The lineup sounds like an ideal way of solving a crime and obtaining sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It sounds conclusive. But the lineup is not an ideal method of police work. Eyewitness iden- tification is untrustworthy at best, and one need not go far in the annals of crime for examples of innocent persons bei...

Golf, racquetball tournaments Continued from page 1 October 10. Meanwhile students can sign up on the charts prominently displayed on the first and third floors at South Texas. These preliminary lists will give the tournament organizers an idea of the number of students interested in competing. Accord- ing to Gus Haddad the response so far has been "fantastic." This tournament will also fea- ture two men's brackets and an open division for women. Those players who can execute a majority of defensive and offen- sive shots with good shot selec- tion should sign up in the "A" bracket. Less experienced players will find the "B" bracket more comfortable, according to Haddad. Play is projected to begin at 7:15 on Thursday night. Winners will advance until the finals Saturday afternoon, with a party for all participants and guests to follow that night. The $10 entry fee includes not only a tournament T-shirt and beverages during the tourna- ment, but also a chance to win a trophy. Losers w...

1303 San Jacinto St. Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Voluma VIII Number 3 October 1979 The Joy of Clerking, and the Variety Thereof by Phillip J. Patrick Staff Writer CLERKING: The very thought of it boggles the mind of the neophyte law student. Yet some- where in nearly every student's career, he or she will be found out in the real world, trying to sell talents, skills, and knowledge on the open market. It is therefore worthwhile to make some obser- vations on the subject. Clerks come in all shapes and sizes. Some are called "court- house messengers," and are employed by large firms to perform a variety of fuctions. From personal experience and observation, I have seen these messengers hand-deliver cor- respondence to opposing counsel and to clients, file pleadings, review case files at the court- house, perform title searches and other record searches at the courthouse. Conversely, I have seen them pick up the boss's shoes from the shoe shop, get the boss's tickets to the opera ...

Lines from SBA South Texas students next month will have the opportunity to affect their own future, at least insofar as campus life is concern- ed. They will have the chance to vote on a newly-revised consti- tution for the Student Bar Association. Perhaps even more importantly, they will have the opportunity prior to that time to express their thoughts and suggestions about that consti- tution at a November 13 meeting of the SBA. The Board of Governors of the SBA, in conjunction with the draftsman of the document, Alumnus Rudy de la Garza, has worked long hours ironing out points in the proposed consti- tution. The results of their labor, an eminently-readable and under- standable document, has been posted on the SBA bulletin board in the Student Lounge for student consideration.

Pago 4 — ANNOTATIONS — October 1979 District Attorney's Office Discussed by Carol Vance r by Rath Brown Staff Writer Novice litigators will gain more trial experience during a single year in the district attorney's office than in five years else- where says former Harris County District Attorney Carol Vance. Vance was at South Texas College of Law on October 9 as a featured speaker for Phi Alpha Delta, one of STCL's law fra- ternities. He spoke on the ad- vantages and disadvantages of working for the local district attorney's and on trial work in general. The former district attorney has spent the majority of his legal career in the Harris County District Attorney's office, from 1958 until 1979. Thirteen of those years were spent in the top job as district attorney. Vance recently elected to give up the harrowing life of a county prosecutor for private practice and is now a partner in the law firm of Bracewell and Patterson. The Harris County Criminal Courts handle around 40,000 cas...

October 1979 - ANNOTATIONS - Page S %-<í t Prosecutorial Discretion: Valid or Undue Influence? " *■ 1 by Kevin George Staff Writer Prosecutorial discretion — that area of the law wherein prosecu- tors are allowed to make recom- mendations on sentencing after convictions — has become the focus of differences of opinion as to validity and appropriateness in recent years. Although the majority of states follow the American Bar Associ- ation's recommendation that "authority to determine the sentence should be vested in the trial judge," as set forth in its 1968 Standard: Sentencing Alter- natives and Procedures, in actual fact the trial judge has lost substantial power in this area. The trend in the relationship between the prosecutor's domain and that of the judiciary has been steadily to increase the former at the expense of the latter. As a result, the actual sentencing decision, though normally thought of as a judical function, is substantially influenced by pros- ecutorial discr...

Now, he said, he has noticed "limited participation by students in the SBA," and it is not unusual to find only SBA officers and board members at a meeting. But the change, he added may be partly due to the increased size of the student body and the fact that every- body no longer "knows every- body else." The former SBA officer said that he has tried to incorporate into the draft of the new constitution at least by reference all procedures and policies that by tradition or rule have been a part of SBA practice. The draft presented to the SBA in July by de la Garza has been closely studied and in respects...

The "spanking" law and to an even greater extent the "Di- vorce" law have not been enforc- ed for a sufficient period of time to predict how they will be applied and precisely what effect they will have on the family structure. Nevertheless the sponsors of the bill do not envision the situation where every parent who "smacks" his offspring will be hauled off to court. Even now after the passage of the "spanking" bill an army of social scientists, doctors and, of course, lawyers are attempting to formulate a workable norm. In setting a standard by which unbridled parental infliction of physical punishment is restrain- ed, the "spanking" law is more a difference in degree than kind with the general trend in western societies.
