Annotations Non-Profit Org. U.S. Postage PAID Houston, Texas Permit 8451 Volume XI, Number 2 1303 San Jacinto, Houston, Texas 77002 August 1983 Welcome First Year Students I would like to take this moment to welcome the new students into the world of Law School. You are now step- ping into your future profession, your career. You will find that there will be times of enjoyment, adventure, fright, pain and agony, and hopefully, success. For some of you there will be a large hurdle to over- come in just having to move to Houston, (speaking from experience), for others it will be natural to have the life in the fast lane. I want to offer a bit of advice to the new students that I wished someone had told me when I first started. The best thing you can do to better yourself in school is to avoid the upper classmen (perhaps persons) who will tell you all the horror stories of how class, recitation, and exams are. I tru- ly believe that one is better off to avoid these people who will try ...

August 1983 — ANNOTATIONS - Page 3 Parking meter violation policies being reviewed by Carlos A. Pazos A middle-aged woman dressed in a medium blue pant suit leans over the fender of a green 1974 Mazda. She pulls back on the windshield wiper, inserts a white card and slams the wiper back into position. Another meter violation, wouldn't you know it. An offense punishable by $10 fine payable within 10 days. The fine could in- crease to as much as $20 or $30, which includes the fine, late fees and possibly a warrant fee. This is but one of repeated situations totalling into the hundreds within a week. An attempt was made to reme- dy this situation.

August 1983 - ANNOTATIONS - Pafle 5 Judge Bell-from country lawyer to chief justice Editor's Note: The following arti- cle was written by Tommy Adkisson, '78, and appeared in ANNOTATIONS in January of 1978. by Tommy Adkisson Staff Writer Of the many individuals who have been prominent in con- tributing to South Texas College of Law (STCL) few, if any, sur- pass in prominence Spurgeon E. Bell. Known to everyone as •Judge' Bell, he has contributed a total of 40 years to teaching at the College. Judge Bell's association with South Texas began at 25 years of age when he started in the Fall of 1933 substituting for his father who was then teaching at STCL. Bell's father, Judge Holland E. Bell, joined the faculty at the re- quest of Edgar E. Townes Sr. after having turned down an offer from the latter's father, Dean John C. Townes of the University of Texas School of Law, to teach in Austin. Judge Holland E. Bell taught Agency and Partnership and Conveyances starting in 1931, in addition ...

Pao© 6 — ANNOTATIONS — August 1983 Does STCL provide adequate social activities? EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a new addition we are trying. If you would like to have a question posed and answered, please type it out and give it to someone on our stuff. Law school should involve more than just academics. Social interaction among fellow students is an essential aspect in one's lear- ning environment. Do you feel South Texas provides an adequate forum for this phase of your education, and if not, what sug- gestions do you have to improve the system? JOANIE MIL LIGAN: I don't feel South Texas provides much in the way of social interaction among the students. This is basically due to the type of stu- dent who goes to South Texas and also the school's campus itself. Most of the students are also employed, and this prohibits much social involvement. As far as the school's campus — there is no campus, just a building . . . The burden is on the fraternities to offer any social life at the school a...

October 1983 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 3 Fall intramural advocacy events announced by David W. Holman For any student who has a desire to get involved with the STCL Advocacy program, this is your semester! There will be three intramural advocacy tournaments held, each of which will be open to all students. The intramural courts are invaluable to your overall legal education, providing unique experiences in legal research, brief writing, trial strategy, appellate presentation and advocacy. "The intramural competitions are important proving grounds for our students," said Assistant Dean T. Gerald Treece. "They gain practical experience under fire and they learn the inner work- ings of the law." Dean Treece also noted that all of the STCL varsity advocates have been selected based upon their performance in the intramural events. Trophies, plaques and other honors will be awarded to the best advocates and brief writers in each competition. The tournaments will be judged by distinguished memb...

Page 4 — ANNOTATIONS - October 1983 Phi Alpha Delta provides service by Jeff Ungcr Why should you consider your fraternity? The Sam Houston Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta is you, and here's why. PHI ALPHA DELTA is the world's largest international pro- fessional law fraternity. PAD has currently 163 chapters chartered at accredited law schools through- out the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico. PHI ALPHA DELTA is unique in that it is the only law fraternity which traces its roots to a legal controversy. That controversy began on November 4,1897, when the Illinois Supreme Court adopted a rule retroactively af- fecting all candidates for admis- sion to the State Bar. In reaction, a group of students formed the "LAW STUDENT LEAGUE" with a purpose of obtaining an ex- emption from the rule for those students who had already entered law school. The league was suc- cessful in obtaining the exemption FORM H IO/82-lOM |líjt (Alpífa ¿ielta fiafo Jfraimttig, APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP ...

This was the question posed at the Dress For Success seminar presented by Sakowitz's Strictly Business de- partment and sponsored by STCL Placement Office on September 6 at noon. The main presentation, given by Vicki Kehner, professional fash- ion consultant, emphasized the important role clothes play in the initial moments of an interview. While you may have prepared yourself with hours of study on the firm and are ultra-confident from self-assertiveness courses, your confidence is FIRST project- ed by your clothes. You are sized- up and categorized long before you have a chance to speak. While yoa may be saying "can do ... ef- ficient . . . authoritative"; your clothes may be shouting the op- posite. Interviews are often basically concluded before you have even introduced yourself. There just is not enough fast talk- ing to...
