October/November, 1986 ANNOTATIONS Page 9 Student Counseling • • • • Cont.frompg2) Typical of the kind of problems that found their way to Professor Charles' desk were ones which were often prefaced or postscripted by the question, "What now?" "What do I do now that I've made all the right sacrifices, done every- thing by-the-numbers, and I'm still flunking out?" . . . "My marriage (or other relationship) is falling to pieces . . . I'm handling law school all right, but he/she is not". . . "The doctors tell me I'm dying, Professor Charles. They don't know how long. I want to graduate — it is my dream — but.. . what now?" Not all of the "non-academic" problems which found their way to Dr. Charles' office were so weighty or catastrophic. Often the emotional traumas involved sud- den job transfers, concerns over a professor the student thought had acted unfairly or maliciously, guilt over not being able to spend more time with a spouse, children, or lover. This category of problem usua...

Randall Kelso, Professor of Law at South Texas College of Law, has recently completed a study cor- relations academic success at South Texas with success on the Texas State Bar. This study was conducted to see what might be done in order to raise the percentage of South Texas students passing the bar the first time and thus enhance the school's reputation and make our graduates more attractive to employers. The study was also conducted to provide the placement office with some numbers that could be utilized by employers to predict success of potential employees on the bar exam. As might be expected, there was a direct relationship between class ranking and success on the bar. But it might be surprising to discover how sharply the d...

Page 2 — THE ANNOTATION — March, 1986 editorial a Sobering Statistics Professor Kelso's recent study comparing grades to bar exam suc- cess presents an extremely sobering reality to some among us. What the professor discovered and what the numbers conclusively show is this: if you are barely hanging on in the grade department, chances are real good that you will not pass the bar. Only one in twelve bar-takers who had less than a 73 average became licensed attorneys. One in twelve. Of approximately 1200 students attending STCL only about 90 may fall into that sub-73 range, according to the study. It is these students that the faculty and administration have begun to "weed out." A new rigid first-year curriculum combined with rigorous grading are aimed at finding (and eliminating) the less adept and less motivated before they take the bar. And it may be harsh and it may be painful but it is also a reality. After all, it is this institution's responsibility to turn out folks who are go...

Page 4 THE ANNOTATION — March, 1986 a God, I Love the Law!" — Engerrand By Sondra Kaighen Staff Writer "He's sixteen for seventeen, plac- ing fifth and spotting eight." No, this is not a bookie's scorecard for the NBA. Rather, it is the track record for South Texas College of Law's very own adjunct team member, Kenneth G. Engerrand. The record referred to above speaks to his stats both as a practic- ing attorney and as a former law stu- dent. That is, as an attorney, he has won every case he ever tried, except one (which was reversed on appeal to the 5th Circuit, and the Supreme Court denied cert.). More interest- ingly however, he placed fifth in the state on the Texas bar, while having "spotted" eight bar courses! Dr. Engerrand is the school's Ad- miralty "coach." His reputation as an expert in the field is well known. Having been born into a family of scholars, Professor Engerrand was bound to excel. His grandfather was a Professor Emeritus at University of Texas and his uncle a ...

March, 1986 THE ANNOTATION — Page 5 Angola and Oxymora By Prof. R.J. Graving Fowler tells us in his Modern English Usage that the rhetorical device of "oxymoron" — the conjunction of incongruous or contradictory terms, such as "cheerful pessimist" — needs discreet handling or its effect may be absurd rather than impressive. The President has been calling publicly for "covert" aid to Jonas Savimbi's rebel rump group in Angola. That is oxymoronic. It is also absurd. The incongruities and contradictions abound: 1. Savimbi's Unita guerrillas are a black nationalist tribal movement overtly supplied and sustained by the apartheid government of South Africa. Equally overt is the South African purpose: to prevent the end of South Africa's in- contestably illegal occupation of Namibia (which lies on the South Atlantic coast between Angola and South Africa's Cape Province). Oxymoronic. 2. The de jure legitimacy of the present government of Angola has been recognized by every major nation in t...

Let's go to London . . . CAMDEN PLACE Just off the Northline route at the Camden tube (The "tube" is the subway!) stop. Our first nite in London happened to be a Thursday which is the best nite to go to this festive new-wave club. It used to be a theatre, so it is huge, with great acoustics and four levels with a bar at each. A live band plays a couple of sets and then D.J. and video take over for late night. Some wild looking partiers make this their regular spot, which makes great people watching for you and me! IF YOU KEEP your eyes open you might spy some rockers quietly drinking at the bar ....

Page 10 — THE ANNOTATION March, 1986 Law Review Receives Westlaw Computer By Michael Fuller Staff Writer The STCL Law Review has re- ceived a Westlaw computer system which consists of a Walt terminal, a Hewlett-Packard printer, training time as well as access time to the Westlaw system itself. The equip- ment and subscription charges were donated to the Law Review by West- law as "an investment in the. future." Westlaw realizes that Law Review members who become familiar in the advantages of using Westlaw will urge their present and future employers to purchase and subscribe to Westlaw, according to Robert Rice, Executive Editor of the Law Review. "Westlaw has been quite generous to us," he said. Westlaw basically has two criteria for charging its clients, based on whether they are a law firm or a law school library. For a law firm the equipment lease for the Walt terminal and printer would be $350.00 a month. If a firm were to purchase the equip- ment it would be $3,000.00. Sub- sc...

March, 1986 — THE ANNOTATION — Page 11 Signing the Roll: Are we the only ones? By Mari S. Blumstein Staff Writer During the spring semester of 1984, a new method of taking class attend- ance was experimented with at South Texas College of Law. The class roster replaced the signing of individual student class cards, and is still in use today. Class cards just didn't work well. It was disruptive to professors and stu- dents, who had to shuffle through a large packet to find their cards. But that was not the only problem with the system. After spot checking, Lylene Pilkenton, STCL Registrar, found that some students were taking their cards from the classroom, signing in for several classes at once, and then returning them to the packet. This gave rise to the implementation of the class roster system, which has proven to be more convenient and efficient. Since the students name will always appear in the same place on the roster, it's easy to sign. Absences are charted and marked next to...

Allen Examinations of income, estate, gift, excise, and employment tax re- turns are the responsibility of the Audit Division of the District Direc- tor's office. The audits fall into one of three categories; field, office, or correspondence. The class of the return determines the process by which it is audited.

editorial DELINQUENT GRADE DILEMMA A very disconcerting aspect of the scheme of things at South Texas Law School is that it is not uncommon for students to have to wait over two months from final exams before the grades for some courses are made avail- able There is little doubt that exam* inations are necessary but after all the factors are added up with due re- gard to the students, faculty, and administration, exams come to take the character of necessary evils at best. It is elementary that some index must be provided the instructor so that he can estimate the degree to which each student has or has not a thorough understanding of the course* Therefore, the instructor must address himself to the difficult task of composing an exam which will fairly and positively deter- mine each student's understanding of the subject matter. After the exam is administered, the Instructor is then faced with the rigors of grading reams of exam papers, each of which is made up of as many as thirty...

BOB ECKHARDT SPEAKS AT STCL The students at South Texas should hope that short notice was the only reason that more of their number did not attend the stimulating talk given by Democratic Congressman Bob Eckhardt on Saturday, October 19, 1968, at the law school. Phi Alpha Delta, sponsor of the visit, was unable to finalize the ar- rangements until a few days before Saturday, so the opportunity for pub- licity was limited. However, those who attended were treated to the infrequent opportunity to meet their truly dynamic member of the House of Representatives in an informal atmosphere. The subject of Congressman Eckhardt*s talk was generally the extent of Federal criminal Jurisdiction. It was most interesting to hear the recent legislative efforts explained and ana- lyzed. Mr. Eckhardt discussed the use of interstate commerce as the ve- hicle for assertion of Federal Juris- diction and pointed out the distinction between an act whose actual completion involves the actual use of inters...

AMERICANS FOR EFFECTIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT an opportunity It is the objective of the Annotations and the student government of South Texas College of Law to continually attempt to broaden the horizons of our student body by offering to them new ideas and opportunities. In keeping with this objective, we are reprinting this article in order to introduce the Americans for Effective Law Enforce- ment, Inc. The ABLE is a non-part-isan, non-political, not-for-profit, tax ex- empt educational corporation, which we believe offers to the students of our school the opportunity to effectively aid their community by written legal arguments on matters which have great importance to all men. The ABLE is ap- parently a vehicle which, if properly used, could not only help create a better community, but could also help create better lawyers out of students. Without further information regarding its nature and composition, the staff of the Annotations is not prepared to appeal for the support of this o...
