Page 2 ANNOTATIONS September/October student survey response Totidem Verbis After an incredible response to the Annotations Questionnaire, about eleven in all, we have tinkered with and tabulated the figures and reach- ed some conclusions of admittedly, limited value. Our survey shows the greatest interest is in reading news of current school events, school competitions, and feature interviews with practic- ing attorneys. There is limited interest instructor profiles, general feature articles, and editorials. Finally, on the "boring" side of our scale, we found intermural sports and crossword puzzles. What did we learn from this? Well, we learned our editor wasted $8.95 on crossword puzzles and we found that we need a better method of surveying our readers. We also received some interesting suggestions, some not fit to print and others anatomically impossible. A particularly interesting set of responses suggested that we rn a survey designed to reveal the "preferable" professors and...

SeDtember/October — ANNOTATIONS PaRe 3 Gravitations International Law (Bork Style) by Professor Graving Tip O'Neill has explained the absence of foreign affairs from his just- published memoirs by saying "nobody ever got elected to public office because of his views on that subject." If he is right—and I am not so sure that he is (what about Kennedy and "the missile gap", Cuba's location "only 90 miles off our shores" and the televised skewering of Nixon over Quemoy and Matsu?)—then a fortiori nobody ever got appointed to the Supreme Court because of his views on International Law. The Special Interests—by which is usually meant everyone whose interest is different from one's own—are reveling in Dionysian delight over the nomination of Robert Bork. The Impeach-Earl-Warren crowd have found their Lochinvar, and the ACLU (along with Professor Kelso's PAW) have discovered Beelzebub. Never have so many axe-grinders read so many cases for so much carborundum. From dicta to diktat we know ...

Page 4 — ANNOTATIONS September/October Movie Review by Dale Paschall" No Way Out Before you see No Way Out you need to eat a lot of raw meat and take a lot of vitamins. At the very least, it calls for a page from the "Hunter S. Thompson School of Gonzo Movie Going" (If you don't know who Hunter S. Thompson is, it's because you live in a repressive Republican society) which requires enough drugs so your mind works on several levels at once. This is a fast-paced, energetic movie. From the time the first credits roll until the last copyrights cross the screen, there is no time for dawdling. Im- mediately the viewer is dropped into a maze of deceit, deception, and political maneuvering that would confuse a well-trained research laboratory rat. The story line of this movie begins to unfold (or unravel) because the Secretary of Defense is locked into a power struggle with a phony southern gentleman senator. The Secretary needs a point man and requests Tom Far- rel, a naval intelligence of...

Page 8 — ANNOTATIONS September/October The Constitution by Aymara K. Edwards The people of the United States of America celebrate September 17, 1987, as the Bicentennial of our Constitution. Two years after the Con- stitutional Convention in 1787, Benjamin Franklin,unsure of whether the Constitution would last, wrote: "Our Constitution is in actual operation; everything appears to promise that it will last; but in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes." Does the constitutional vision of 1787 remain a reality 200 years later? Is the Constitution out-of-date? Are we faced with a current need to hold a constitutional convention? Constitutional Law Professors of South Texas College of Law endeavor to answer these questions in the following discussion. Q: Are you in favor of periodic constitutional conventions? Lewis: No, our constitution has served us very well. D. Crump: No. I think a constitution ought to be amended on- ly rarely. Treece: No. Q: Who is behind this current ...

September/October — ANNOTATIONS Page 9 Out of Date 200 Years Later? Supreme court's interpretation of the first, fourth and fifth amendments, through the fourteenth amendment that has made us what we are: this unique experiment in democracy. Hughes: The Supreme Court Opinions are not part of the Constitution. The Constitution remains after they have garbled it. If the first amendment says Con- gress shall make no law, it doesn't matter how many times the Supreme Court says "well, they really didn't mean that, what they meant was no law except...." The amendment's language still says "no law". I don't think I have a label to apply. You can use the text, the context, the history of the ratifications, and it's hard to ignore what I think are legal, historical events in our society, like the fact of the Civil War. The fact of the rise of the in- dustrial state; the fact of existence of the ad- ministrative welfare. You cannot apply the con- stituion today as if you were applying it to a...

Lewis: Thomas Jefferson could because he was against judicial review. I think he very well might have en- visioned this kind of chaos and confusion. I think that was part of the reason he took offense to it. The judicial branch ought to be able to review the acts of other branches of the government. I think some of the framers probably envisioned that. Yes, I think they could. And I think that's why we have such provisions as the Ninth Amendment which says that the failure to include a right ex- plicitly in the Constitution does not mean that right does not exist. In fact, the Ninth amendment has been looked at as a rule itself of constitutional in- terpretation....

Page 12 ANNOTATIONS September/October SAVAGE ACT IN A CIVIL LAND by Daren Harrell Editor's Note: the following is the winning essay in the STCL contest for students from the High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice. See related article. "It is but law that when the red drops have been spilled upon the ground they cry aloud for fresh blood." Aeschylus, Libation Bearers (459 B.C.) As a civilized society, the United States and Texas should constantly strive to maintain law and order and vehemently oppose injustice and cruelty. Today Texas is faced with an issue that not only undermines human compassion and decency, but exemplifies a horrible legal paradox and moral delinquency. This situation is of course the death penalty. Many have tried to explain the positive factors for its use. These trivial stabs at justification evidence ignorance of the facts and carry legal and moral implications. To preserve our courts and our American way of life, the Texas Death Penalty must be...

Page 14 ANNOTATIONS — September/October Tax Reform Act Changes Taxes Of Dependents Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs)—Taxpayers who claim a de- pendent who is at least 5 years of age must include the taxpayer identifica- tion number of that dependent on the return they file. For most individuals, this number is the individual's social security number. This change is effec- tive beginning with 1987 returns. Personal Exemption - Personal ex- emptions may no longer be claimed by individuals who are eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another tax- payer's tax return. This is effective for 1987 and all following tax years. Standard Deduction-The standard deduction allowed to any individual who is eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another's tax return is the greater of: 1. $500, or 2. the dependent's earned income, but not more than the allowable standard deduction. For example, a dependent child who is not blind and who does not work gets a standard deduction of $500. If ...

The S.B.A. formed a steering committee for the sole purpose of planning Law Week. Committee chair is Reva Morton and the members are Daurel Apffel, Sue Norman, and D'Lisa Simmons. The faculty ad- visor is Professor Hans Lawton. The committee has chosen the week of March 9th to be Law Week 1987. According to S.B.A. President Rick Laminack the date was moved up before spring break, so that more students would be able to participate. Last year's Law Week was held the week after spring break. In 1986 Law Week commenced with a ceremony wherein Mayor Kathy Whitmire signed an official proclamation announcing South Texas ...

Page 2 ANNOTATIONS — February, 1987 EDITORIAL There is no more anxious time in law school than that first semester, unless of course one includes the final semester and all the others in between. Such is life. A practicing attorney, who looked sadly across a lunch at this student when he was told that I would be entering this learned profession, had this to say about the law school experience: "It won't get easier as you go along, but it will get better". Now, entering my final year of law school, I am of the opinion that the "better" he was referring to was getting the hell out. Or perhaps passing the bar. Or maybe making partner. Or retiring. Pick a spot in the spectrum. It truly does not get easier as you go along. Do not think for a moment that by pay- ing your dues the first year it will be a downhill slide after that. The "downhill slides" in law school are not pretty sights: They usually mean sliding out of the door with fail- ing grades. Slack off a little; suffer a lot. Her...

NEWS THE NEW STUDENT CAN USE X ■f By Tom Laucius Roving Rogue Reporter Our Roving Rogue Reporter went out and scoured the country- side to find out what is the best advice for incoming students here at STCL. This is a compilation of what he found. Or so he claims . . . Rick Laminack, President, SB A: Get involved with the school besides just studying. Mark Levin, Third year student: Rip as many books as possible. Ms. Lylene Pilkenton, Registrar: Don't ever ask Ms. Pilkenton if she's in a good mood or a bad mood because it her off! Peggy Fortner, Career Development Director: Go to medical school. Dean Williamson, Dean of STCL: First, learn to think like a lawyer, and second, play it straight, speak the truth and keep your word once it is given. Frank G. Evans, Chief Justice, Court of Appeals I believe a new law student could benefit from learning negotia- tion skills — along with advocacy skills. This should improve the person's living sk...

Page 4 - ANNOTATIONS - February, 1987 Women In Law: You've come a long way baby Law Review Review or have you? By C.E. Roberts Mom's advice to her daughter to marry a doctor, lawyer or engineer to be forever secure has become an offensive anachronism. Women are no longer being reared only to be wives and mothers, but also to choose a profession or career in order to take their proper places in the work force. One reason for this change is obvious; it is a basic right. However, a more subtle reason also exists: it now often takes two incomes to support and raise a family. Recognizing that economics is playing a vital role in changing the social structure more women are choosing to enter professions, in- cluding the practice of law. This ar- ticle is an attempt to analyze the problems women face in the practice of law and, more specifically, why a large number of female attorneys are leaving the legal profession. With regard to the practice of law, Women Legal Forum's facul- ty adviso...
