Annotations Non-Proflt Org. U.S. Postage PAID Houston, Texas Permit 8451 Volume XI, Number 7 1303 San Jacinto, Houston, Texas 77002 February 1984 Delaney lists five steps in spotting the issue by Barbara Pusch From the moment law students sit down and turn to page one of their first reading assignment, they are presumed to know how to spot a legal issue. Given the leisure of pre-class study time, the issues of nearly any legal problem can be discern- ed. However, during an exam issue spotting must be quick and ef- fortless and that can be ac- complished, according to Dr. John Delaney, professor of law at New York University Law School, only through practice. Delaney, author of How To Do Your Best on Law School Exams and other publications, offers some basic aids for learning to spot issues on law exams. The issue spotting technique developed by Delaney applies, he says, not only to law exams, but also to bar exams and, later to the problems encountered in the prac- tice of law. In o...

Page 2 - ANNOTATIONS - February 1984 Copenhagen, Denmark chosen as site for Summer '84 foreign law studies program (Reprinted from Res Ipsa Lo- quitur, Vol. 8 No. 2) Capital University Law School has decided that summer school is not exciting enough in Columbus, Ohio! To cure the boredom the school has initiated a foreign law studies program. Copenhagen, Denmark, one of the most in- teresting cities in Europe, has been chosen as the site for the summer '84 program. The program begins on June IS and lasts six weeks. Anyone finished with one year of law school is eligible to attend. Summer in Copenhagen is beautiful. The weather is generally sunny and warm. It resembles a beautiful spring day here, but lasts all summer. Copenhagen's lat- itude is about the same as mid Canada, but the gulf stream brings it nice weather. Being so far north, the number of daylight hours is enormous in the summer. The sun sets about 11:00 p.m. and rises at 3:30 a.m. In June, it never gets completely dark....

February 1984 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 3 New committee to study Texas Civil Code AUSTIN — State Bar of Texas President Blake Tartt of Houston announced the creation of a special committee to study the proposed Texas Civil Code. The proposed code is a non- substantive revision of the laws relating to civil procedure, and civil remedies and liabilities. The Texas Civil Code is but one of several codifications that will be submitted to the 1985 Texas Legislature. This will be the first time civil law in Texas has been codified. The goal of the State Bar's blue- ribbon committee, which was formed at the suggestion of the Supreme Court of Texas, is to assist the Texas Legislative Coun- cil by offering input from the practicing bar. "I envision this committee us- ing its expertise to offer construc- tive advice to the Council in its work revising the code," Tartt stated. Chairing the special committee is former chairman of the Board of Directors of the State Bar of Texas Bryan F. Russ of Heam...

The tours are designed to ac- quaint law students with the prac- tical — and necessary — steps in- volved in filing pleadings, sub- poenas and other papers in the various courts, according to Lety Barguiarena, president of Women in Law. v "This is particularly helpful for first year students or others who haven't clerked," Barguiarena said. "This is an introduction to the court system for people to get ac- quainted with where and how the process works," she said. Stu- dents will be given exposure to "the kinds of little things people don't know unless they've had oc- cassion to be in the courtroom and have regular dealings there."

Pag© 2 - ANNOTATIONS - April 1984 Heading home with memories of books, a baby, bygones by BiU McCoy As I sit here working on my last edition of Annotations, trying to decide what needs to go into the paper, I had a chance to think about the last three years — both the good and the bad that have happened throughout my law school career. My first semester in August, 1981, seems hazy. But the first set of law school exams — torts, criminal law and five hours of property with Dr. Duffy — will live in infamy. Never have I been so unnerved by anything, nor had anything I had ever accomplished prepared me for the trying ex- perience of sitting for exams. During that first exam I had so much sweat pouring off me I looked like I had been swimming. During those three hours I would have sworn the walls were closing in on me, and that the world had come to a standstill. An eternity passed before the proctor called time. I was mentally and physi- cally drained, yet my study part- ner and I had t...

Well, we all tried to learn. . .what was that? Oh well, I'll learn it by the time the bar comes around. Any- way, we all made a lot of new friends. . .hey, he still owes me $20. That bum, I'll sue.

Page 8 - ANNOTATIONS - April 1984 The year in advocacy: a preliminary review by David W. Holman Another great year! This was a year that was supposed to be a year of transition for the South Texas Advocacy Program. This was supposed to be a year of rebuilding. One year after the Decker-Rusk era. A year when South Texas would have to swallow defeat before it could once again savor victory. That hasn't happened. What has hap- pened is that STCL is on the road to its best year ever! The South Texas Moot Court and Mock Trial Programs, coach- ed by Assistant Dean T. Gerald Treece, have surpassed all expec- tations. Once again, South Texas has redeemed its reputation as the premier advocacy school in the nation. The year began well. At the Benton National Moot Court Competition in Information Law and Privacy held in Chicago this Fall, the STCL varsity moot court team won the best brief in the na- tion and placed fifth overall in a field of 28 teams. Team members included Diane Shaw, capta...
