Annotations - August, 1970 Page 11 The Claim for Mooo-La If you believe the practice of law is all work and no play, read the following for an account of how one lawyer was able to introduce some good oP "tongue in cheek" humor into his case work. The following is the text of a letter, written in 1917, by a railroad attorney to another attorney in the deep South. The railroad attorney is counsel for his defendant railroad com- pany. The plaintiff seeks damages as a result of the death of a cow allegedly caused by the railroad company. The letter..... "You have a claim for $100.00 value of a cow killed by train (I should have said alledged value) upon which you offer to take $75.00 in settlement. Mr the Company's claim agent, is very much distressed by your figures. He wants to settle with your client without suit, if possible, but can never on earth obtain authority to pay $75.00. He strained himself to the point of exhaustion be offering $35.00, lost his nerve, dropped out of the b...

ANNOTATIONS Of Odr , 70 1220 POLK - HOUSTON, TEXAS The South Texas College of Law Message From The Dean The Traveler I am pleased to have this opportunity to welcome all students who have registered at South Texas College of Law for the Fall Semester, and in particular, to extend a welcome to the 260 new students who have registered in law school for the first time. By this time these students will be thoroughly confused with all the new terms, method of study, and trying to sort out the suggestions made by the advanced students. This strangeness and confusion disappears in a month or two, as it has always done in the past, and adjustment and compre- hension take its place. One word of advice, "Think for your- self, and think like a lawyer after acquiring the facts." Do not hesitate to consult with your teachers or with me if you feel the need to do so. I wish to thank and commend the old students for demonstrating a sense of professional responsibility during their tenure at legal ...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 2 An Interview With Mr. Reiter The odds are that the first professor that freshmen law students meet at South Texas College of Law is Professor Bernard A. Reiter. Mr. Reiter teaches Torts—that five-hour monster which, to a great degree, determines whether or not you are going to make a lawyer. So as you sit there in Torts with your hundreds of brothers and sisters and wonder about the Professor sitting back of the "reiterphone" Well. . . . Professor Reiter is a 1958 graduate of Ohio State Univer- sity where he received a B.S. in both Industrial and Mechanical Engineering. From 1958-59 he was employed as an engineer with North American Aviation. In 1959 he began work in the Patent Office in Washington, D.C., as a Patent Examiner; con- currently he attended Georgetown University Law Center and received his Juris Doctorate in 1963. From 1963-66, Mr. Reiter worked in the Office of Patent Council of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, both ...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 3 EDITORIAL T There is a present and growing need for a comprehensive patent law program at South Texas College of Law. Presently a course entitled 'Patent Law' is taught annually, but the title is deceptive in that the course schema consists of Patent Law, Copyright Law and Trademark Law. Due to an equal amount of time being allotted to each subject, only one-third of a semester of Patent Law is offered. This may be sufficient for those students who need only a talking acquaintance with the subject but for the student with a technical or scientific back- ground, and desirous of taking the Patent Law Examination and practicing Patent Law, it is patently inadequate. Neither is it sufficient for Houston, the hub of technical innovative thought in the Southwest. It is apparent to the least perceptive that Houston is destined to be the largest city in the United States. Along with population growth, technical ideas must grow if we are to continue to feed...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 4 TRAVELER (Cont'd from page 1) necessitated a carefully planned itinerary, a half-day at a time, in order to get to some of the more stimulating sessions. Such jaunts were usually at the expense of L.S.D. activities since the long recognized inability to be in two places simultaneously was not altered at the 93rd Annual Meeting of the A.B.A. Although the L.S.D. is formally committed to pro- moting academic excellence through participation by law students in the efforts of the organized bar and to achieving awareness and promoting involvement of law students in the solving of problems which confront today's changing society, no student delegate could do justice to these lofty goals and at the same time address himself to the rather mundane business affairs of operating the Law Student Division. Certainly the need for organization and efficiency in our courts could bene- ficially spill over into the management of the L.S.D. and the conduct of its port...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 6 The Honor Code And You by Andrew F. Walsh, Former Chief Justice, Honor Court Your conduct while a student of law at this school is governed by your own ethical standards, the honor code adopted by your peers in a past Student Bar Association elec- tion, and a minimum of attendance and library regulations imposed by the school administration. Although the ethical standards possessed by us as students of the law should be of the highest quality, unfortunately we do exhibit some of the weaknesses of mankind in general in our conduct at school. The honor code is intended to minimize incidents of cheating on law examinations, misrepresentation of attendance at class, and destruction, stealing and misuse of other people's property—whether that of the school or of another student. It provides the machinery for application of various sanctions against violators of the code. And, the honor code sets out a standard of conduct for us all to follow. A duty and...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 7 -<9r HONOR Law classes have begun for the evening at STCOL. The roll cards are passed and the law students place their signatures thereon: we are all here. The class period moves on.. . . then it is time for a ten-minute break. Coffee, soft drinks, cigarettes, leg-stretching, the "When are my grades coming out?" chatter and then, back to class. The honorable group returns to class for another hour. But have they? There seem to be empty chairs which weren't here prior to the break! No, this cannot be. Why Not? Because South Texas has an Honor Code that prohibits it. A code that not only prohibits it but requires you to tattle on the culpable student or run the risk of being turned-in for knowing the code has been violated and not reporting it. Let me take stock. If I am not losing my mind and we do have students who slip out at the break, who are they? Well I'll ask my brother, Rancid P. Sweetbottom—he'll know those who have fallen to such depths...

r Annotations - October, 1970 Page 8 The Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity ft by Jim Walton, Dean MAY THEIR RECORD BE THEIR PROUDEST MONUMENT It is said that young men can change the world—and as prospective lawyers we must decide now whether we will choose to "fish or cut bait" during our law school careers: i.e., whether to "get involved' in the life at South Texas or play the violin of apathy in the vacuum of indifference. For many students the time has come when its suddenly realized that the "baton" of Fraternal organizations, Student government and the Law Journal must soon be passed on to others—bearing in mind that scholarship, leadership and pro- fessionalism have always been the hallmark of every good law school. The greatest asset of the* fraternity system is the distinc- tive idealism characteristic of practically all law fraternities. Senator Mark O. Hatfield, former Governor of Oregon, has said: "Against the backdrop of a world which is so com- mitted to materialism that ...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 10 Freshmen Orientation by Keith Jenkins The first annual Freshmen Orientation at South Texas College of Law was held September 12 under the auspices of the Student Bar Association. Freshman Senator Keith Jenkins organized the program and acted as Master of Ceremonies. Many of the approximately seventy-five freshmen students in attendance expressed satisfaction with the program and the helpful information they had received. SB A Faculty Advisor Charles Weigel, as first speaker on the agenda, welcomed the freshmen on behalf of the faculty. In his remarks, Mr. Weigel called for a committment to the study of law far and above that which the new student had known as an undergraduate. In choosing South Texas, he con- tinued, the new students have placed trust in an institution where the professors and students are of the finest quality anywhere in the nation. George Preston, SB A President, spoke next about the Student Bar's activities and functions. He e...

1 Annotations - October 1970 Page 11 Book Review by Don Martin The Trouble with Lawyers by Murry Teigh Bloom. "My main purpose is to show how the American middle-class is victimized by the American legal profession." So states Murry T. Bloom in the introduction to his eye- opening book, The Trouble with Lawyers. If the cases and situations in this book are true, it is no small wonder that the 'man in the street' has a very dim view of the legal profession in general. Mr. Bloom cites many instances of, if not illegal, highly questionable acts by attorneys. These acts range from extreme- ly large fees in comparison to the actual amount of service performed, to outright thievery. In most of the instances, the local bar association either ignored or white-washed the actions of the attorneys. Judges too. received a blistering attack from Mr. Bloom for turning deaf ears and blind eyes toward these actions. In many cases these same judges were in consort with the lawyer. This book reveals ...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 12 J Public Intrest Law Firms by Donald K. Ross (Staff of Ralph Nader) There has come of age a new generation of law stu- dents and recent graduates more conscious of the urgency of social reform than any past generation of lawyers. Deeply aware of the legal profession's inade- quate commitment of time and resources to the solu- tion of social problems, many have decided to become full time advocates for the unrepresented poor people, racial minorities, unorganized con- sumers. -Edgar Cahn — Jerry Berman A student note soon to be published in the Yale Law Journal defines public interest lawyers as those who represent the poor, political and cultural dissidents and unrepresented common interests, like consumer and environmental protection. It embraces areas as diverse as poverty law, conservation, radical politics and campaigns for corporate responsibility. It includes old civil liberties attorneys and new political lawyers. This type of law holds gre...

Annotations - October, 1970 Page 13 Is Order Alone tiie National Heart's Desire? Bernard G. Segal said in the president's annual address at the American Bar Association's St. Louis meeting that. .. ."it is not law in tandem with order that the majority seeks. The signs and portents indicate that order is the national heart's desire—even if it has to be purchased at the price of sundering the heart of the law—our Bill of Rights." A recent opinion poll that showed a majority of Americans would surrender half of the first ten amendments to the Constitution was cited as the basis for Segal's comments. Americans must be re-educated in the true meaning of the principles upon which the Constitution and our democracy are based—principles which, Segal continued, have become blurred in an increasingly complex society, and which seem to many to be outmoded or inappropriate in times such as these. According to ABA President Segal, the task of re-education falls largely upon the attorney. "The l...

ANNOTATIONS OF SOUTH TEXAS COLLEGE OF LAW S. B. A.: GET INVOLVED ii( By Don Hendrix The current Student Bar Association has proposed much, but, except for a dandy beach and beer bust, they have enacted little significant legis- lation directed at the problems which beset the student body. This Reporter, who has yet to attend one of those vocal SBA meetings, would probably do well to refrain from pointing to the shortcomings of others. Nevertheless, some things should be said, even by someone so un- worthy as this writer. Recent meetings have been unusually well attended. Unfortunately, about the only thing worth noting was a rather spirited argument about who would have to assume the liability should some errant sot run amuck on his way home from the beach and beer bust. It is, I grant vou, a tonic which warrants much discussion, we would suggest though, that the law journal might provide a more suitable forum rather than the SBA rostrum. There have been more relevant discussions he...

Page two INTENRSHIP PROGRAM EXPANDED The internship program initiated last year has been expanded in 1971 to include the civil practice area as well as the criminal. This semester, a number of students were placed with law firms in order that they might get a firsthand look at the everyday world of a practicing attorney Under the directions of professors John Ensle and Ray Moses, the pro- gram has been applauded by the entire legal community throughout Harris County. Jimmy James, one of the participating criminal defense attorneys, ex- pressed surprise that such a unique program was so long in evolving, nThe medical profession has long had such a program," James noted, "It's high time the legal profession realized the merit of such a practice." William (Bud) Tise, interning in Judge Myron Love's court, has already prosecuted three criminal actions under the guidance of a&aidistrict attorney Jim Skelton. "it's the most exciting experience I've ever encountered," Tise said. "Befor...

The young lawyer's step from the theories of lav.7 school to the practical aspects of practice has been given succor by the Junior Bár's "Bridge the GapTT programs, covering a wide range of topics. i/vhat all of this should mean to the average law student is simply this: it is characteristically too late to get involved with the legal profession on graduation day.

The committee was established for the purpose of studying the feas- ibility of the enactment of a public defender program in the county. The twenty members who compose the committee represent various viewpoints in the legal community, including attorneys from large civil firms, federal and state prosecutors, and criminal defense attorneys. Although many cities across the nation utilize the public defender system to provide legal a id for indigents, the concept is relatively new to the urban Texas scene.
