February 1980 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 Lines From SBA by Marcus Hill SBA President On January 17, the board of governors of the Student Bar Association met for the purpose of electing a new treasurer to fill the seat vacated by the gradua- tion of John Yanchunis. Nominated were Larry Hatley, Robert Kennedy, and Fran Jack- son. The first two were present and gave their respective qualifi- cations, while Fran would make the following meeting and do the same. The board voted for an election by secret ballot. At that time it was determined that the ten-day statutory require- ment of notice had not been met. Therefore the SBA called a special meeting for the following week for the purpose of the election. At the meeting Jan. 24, the attendance was larger than usual, the reason being that Judge Ramirez of the City of Houston, Municipal Court No. 3 was present to discuss the parking ticket situation. The first order of business, however, was the election. Blank pieces of paper were distribut...

Page 2 — ANNOTATIONS - March 1980 "Even A Woman" Can Find A Position i population peaked at 860, only a * slight increase from 1975. By 1979. South Texas had 245 male graduates and 55 female graduates. Three hundred thirty- three women were enrolled in STCL that 601. while the male enrollment decreased slightly, down to 854. As the disparate ratios of female to male students show, women who comprise the largest segment of this nation's popula- tion, have yet to equal the number of men struggling their way through contracts and torts. Yet ironically, if they do survive the gauntlet of "learning to think like a lawyer," women face possible handicaps in job hunting because of their sex. As one aspiring attorney put it, "It's really hard to be a 'good ole boy' when you're a woman." In the past, many women law graduates opted to start a family rather than take on the time-and- energy-consuming role of an attorney plus the time-and- energy-consuming roles of wife In a pamphlet sent out to...

Prosecutors And Pre-Sentence Investigation Fifth in a Series by Kevin George Staff Writer Apart from being able to avoid the thrust of a "real offense" by agreeing to concede or not to oppose the defendant's character- ization of the offense, the prose- cution at his discretion may reduce the charge. This then becomes the "offense of convic- tion." Here the prosecutor exercises his power over sentencing in an indirect fashion. Rather than bargain explicitly about the sen- tence the court will be asked to impose, the prosecutor will bar- gain on whether or not he will reduce the principle charge (real offense) against the defendant to a lesser serious offense (offense of conviction). From the defend- ant's perspective, the primary significance of the charge reduc- tion process plainly is in its effect on the sentence he will receive. The question may then be asked whether or not the proba- tion officer's presentence report is a ...

Page 4 - ANNOTATIONS - March 1980 Parking Problem Taken To Houston City Council by John Healey An attempt tq resolve the dual problems of safety and parking brought South Texas College of Law students to the chambers of the Houston City Council on Wednesday, Feb. 27. With the approval of the Student Bar Association, Tom Sheffield stated a far-reaching plan to deal with the violence which shadows students as they walk to their cars at night, and the plethora of parking tickets stu- dents find on their windshields by day. During the two weeks prior to the council meeting, Sheffield and others circulated petitions at STCL which detailed the recent outbreak of muggings, verbal abuse, and auto vandalism near the school. The petition also dealt with what many students feel is an overzealous attitude on the part of meter maids in giving parking tickets, and also asked the council to consider various methods to alleviate the parking situation. Those methods suggested the petition. Each poin...

IT'S IMPERATIVE! This must be the advocate's goal every time he appears in court; but, can he anticipate the opinions of the day? Why will similar facts result in opposite rulings in different jurisdictions? What reasoning allows one plaintiff to collect a large judgment and another plaintiff a small one; why is one defendant acquitted and another hit with a stiff sentence? Many legal decisions are not decided simply on the raw facts and laws of a particular case, but on human intuition motivated by human values, peer pressure, and public policy. The inherently unpredictable outcome of a case requires the conscientious advocate cognizant- ly to maintain an intimate under- standing of human nature and all of its whimsical fickleness. It's not too perplexing that a jury will sympathize with the advocate ...

Pfigs 2 —ANNOTATIONS - April 1860 Salary Survey Is Made Two Wall Street law firms have offered 1980 graduates $33,000 to start and firms in Houston and Washington, D.C., may soon follow suit, according to the fifth annual salary survey in Stadeat Lawyer. James Kilmer of the executive search firm of Kilmer and Associates, who conducts the annual salary surveys, says, "In these markets there continues to be tremendous competition for the so-called Brahmins (super stars). It is much like a salary poker game in which the firms constantly raise the ante for the Michigan coif or the Harvard cum almost obscene wages, but in many cases are working six and seven days a week for this money. They are also earning it by depriving themselves of sleep, social and family life, exercise, and, sometimes, even their peace of mind." He offers this advice to new graduates: "The way to beat the system is still to establish a legal name for yourself in your community. Set up shop yourself or in partnersh...

Celebration by Al Orenberg and Gregg Schwartz The "promoters" of the STCL Sports Intramural program are certainly deserving of much grati- tude for the overwhelming suc- cess they have brought to the school via the court, the field, or the fairway. In its first full year of program- ming, STCL, a private institution, with the aid of no formal funding, has held numerous team sports competitions as well as individual type events to foster a sense of pride and achievement in our- selves and our school. The turnout for the intramural pro- gram has been nothing less than excellent, thanks to Larry Hatley and of course you (us) the students and faculty. Due to the high interest this year, next year's SB A has plans for a three-person intramural board to coordinate and promote all sports activities. One of the effects of such board, it is hoped, will be to procure funding for all events so the...

P&ge 4 — ANNOTATIONS — April 1900 *T* South Texas An Educational Giant II If (The following article is taken from "American Pioneer," pub- lished bi-monthly by American Title Company.) South Texas College of Law is an educational giant whose sta- ture fits nicely into Houston's way of doing things. Curiously, few Houstonians identify the College as an independent entity, which it is. Yet, South Texas College of Law is one of the finest schools of its kind in the country. In fact, it has become a rarity-a privately endowed law school in a field dominated by state-owned and state-supported institutions. Garland R. Walker, dean of STCL, considers this indepen- dence significant. Since most law schools operate under state- allocated budgets, and since the governmental sector increasingly involves itself in the affairs of the private sector, Dean Walker asks thoughtfully whether or not it is reasonable to expect a public law school to demonstrate in the classroom the same enthusiasm ...

Since the fields of wills, trusts, and estates are interrelated, it is believed that students will gain a better understanding of the sub- ject matter if these subjects are considered together in one course. Hence, the courses in Wills and Trusts will be combined into a four-semester-hours course entitled "Wills, Trusts and Estates." The subjects currently taught in Sales and Bills and Notes will be re-allocated between a four- semester-hours "Commercial Law I" course and a three- semester-hours "Commercial Law II" course, in order to give the material more logical treat- ment and to include new subjects of current significance. The Bankruptcy course will continue in its present form, and Creditors' Remedies will be re- duced in weight to two semester hours credit. A new t...

4 X April 1960 - ANNOTATIONS - P*QS7 ' f " •I- -t- " I* 1 ••-r i" ■ : l : i 1* *r The Prosecutor And Pleas Last tn a Series by Kevin George Staff Writer Perhaps the prosecutor's greatest impact on sentencing lies in the area of plea negotiation. As previously noted, sen- tencing discretion is presently shared by judges, parole com- mission, and the prosecutor. The range of potential sentences is initially determined by the prose- cutor's decision regarding the charge. If the defendant is convicted after trial, the judge selects a sentence within this range. But if a prison sentence is imposed, the defendant is eligible for early release. The parole commission decides, according to formally promulgated guidelines, whether to grant early release to eligible offenders (28 C.F.R. 2.20 —1977). This normal procedure for determining sentence is, of course, only in a small minority of cases, since about 80 to 90 per cent of all federal convictions are by plea of guilty (or nolo conten- dere...
