Thompson's staff has already received a manual of operation, and the library staff is preparing for a three-day course to learn the skills needed to use the system.

Houston, the unique set-up here and I got an opportunity to teach what I wanted to teach." The speaker, one of the newest faculty members at STCL, is Dr. F. Lawrence Matthews. He came here from a private practice in Miami, Florida. He also served as an adjunct at the University of Miami's law school, his alma mater. While at UM he was on the law review, served as a teaching assistant in his upper level years and ended up graduating number two in his class. Joining the faculty at STCL has put Dr. Matthews into what he likes to call the "non-status role", but one that he was looking for in a teaching position. "I always enjoyed writing, 1 like to feel I'm a craftsman," he said. Evidence of his disire is the upgrading of the Legal Research and Writing classes now being offered at STCL since his takeover of the program. , He says that over...

What's even worse is when this is at eight o'clock, with less than fifteen people in the whole library, and all freshmen who we cleared earlier of any wrongdoings. You face a choice, go down to the first floor and hope the books are there and carry them back up tíie steps to copy them since the copiers on the first floor never work after six p.m., or you can undertake the impossible and go on a little search.

October 1980 — ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 +■ - i M " * * * Honor Code Violations Explained by Associate Justice Maureen O'Shea Copying from your neighbor's paper during a torts exam, plagiarizing a seminar paper, and signing your buddy's attendance card for him when he's out playing golf are all Honor Code violations. So, too, is foxholing, the old trick of going to class and sitting mute when the professor calls'on you to recite or comment. These violations are most likely quite obvious to everyone. There are others, though, that students may not be aware of and they are set forth in Title Three of the Honor Code. Violations are divided into primary and secondary areas, depending on the sanction im- posed upon conviction. A student found guilty of a primary violation is subject to suspension for a period of years, or permanently, with the possibility of a notation of the same being placed on his transcript. Sanctions for violation of a secondary violation include probation, a letter of c...

Page 6 — ANNOTATIONS — October 1980 STCL Interns mediate in NJC by Mike Wlke The Neighborhood Justice Cen- ter (NJC) is a new program in Houston, designed to function as an alternative to the formal court system. The NJC offers media- tion to help resolve "non-fee- generating" civil and minor crim- inal disputes in Harris County and vicinity. Mediation involves two or more people in conflict meeting with an independent third party, the mediator, who provides a forum whereby the disputants can construct their own mutual, problem-solving agreements. Unlike arbitration and adjudication, the mediator does not decide what the solution should be; the disputants achieve their own lasting resolutions. STCL, through the support of Dean Walker, is the only local law school instituting a program which provides active participa- tion in the NJC by law students. Eleven STCL students have been selected and trained to serve as interns this semester, through Dean Ensle's intern program. Neighborhoo...

Alice Morse, a senior law student and member of Delta Theta Phi, was elected to the office for a one year term. The Chief Prosecutor's office investigates violations of the Honor Code, and tries matters which merit prosecution. Candi- dates for the post must have 45 credit hours, and have had courses in Evidence, Criminal Procedure and Constitutional Law. Trish Saum is Assistant Prose- cutor. Additional assistants are sometimes appointed to help in certain cases. Morse is also on the Honor Code Revision Committee and intends to continue "to take an active role" in that capacity as well as her new role as Chief Prosecutor.

Page 2 — ANNOTATIONS - April-May 1981 Good Move! The present SBA, quickly gaining the reputation as abolitionists, for the many awards that have recently "bitten the dust" have taken a great step forward in the revising of awards to professors. Earlier in the year the SBA with the cooperation of the faculty and administration, and at the prodding of midlaw senator Ben Stevens, abolished the Outstanding Professor Award. But, unlike the recent dust biters, Stevens had. a solution to what was quickly becoming a popularity contest and less an appreciation of professorial excellence. The solution, called the Teacher Excellence Award, for lack of a better name, changed the process for determining the professor or professors that the students felt deserved special commendation for their contributions to the academic atmosphere at STCL. Any students wishing to nominate a professor for an award were able to do so, just as before, but now it has to be done by a petition and have signatures to...

One particular area of emphasis will be placement and recruiting, the former having undergone a major transformation this fall. "There is virtually no recruiting done now," Treece said. "This is going to be a whole new program; to tell the South Texas Story to schools who don't know we're here." Treece noted that because South Texas has no undergrad- uate programs or high-profile extracurricular activities to buttress its image, it is difficult to achieve the recognition available to other law schools.

This is no negative feature, though, for according to Dean Walker: "We don't want to register anymore than we already have." The school registered 1,229 students for the fall term. Last fall's figure was 1,248. Tota, freshman enrollment is 260 com- pared to 271 last year. Perhaps the most significant statistic reveals an increase in female students and a marked decrease in male enrollment. STCL enrolled 428 women and 801 men this fall.

Their most vocal claim is that the machines detract from the school's professional character. Obviously though, many students seem to enjoy the games, for there is a constant cluster of players and specta- tors surrounding the machines. Nevertheless, a controversy is evidenced by the fact that a petition has circulated the school and may soon be presented to the dean. So that both sides might surface in the same forum, the SBA held an open meeting on October 21 to discuss the subject. Elio Muller, an STCL student, presented his petition to the SBA and asked the body to present it to the dean in an official capacity. Dean Jones appeared and spoke in defense of the Muller's petition was inked by 175 students during the two-...

This is filed with the State Board of Law Examiners and must be done within 120 days of entering law school, according to the instruc- tions on the form. But what happens if your form is postmarked on the 125th day after beginning law school; or if you file a month or more late? Well, the consequences bear a reasonable relationship to the degree of lateness. But by and large, one will not be precluded from taking the bar unless the form is filed within 270 days of the bar exam you plan to take. The form aprises the Board of your presence in law school, and by degrees, of your intent to take the bar exam at some point down the road. According to Sylvia Cantu, an investigator for the Board in the Character and Fitness Depart- ment, one can be kept from taking the bar if the form ...
