SEPTEMBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS Page 3 W ilks Continued from page 2 first-year courses. Now in the spring it's still going to be first-year courses only. Next fall, now, we'll get into something else. We'llget into some upper-level courses which are generally taken by second-year students, or students with more than 30 hours. For second-year full time students those courses will also be... I hope the faculty approves this because I've got to get faculty approval for all this... I had to make a one-shot deal with just very little faculty input, just their chance to protest and that's about all. But a faculty committee should work this out, and I want to do that for the second-year courses and then, by the third year all the full-time students should be on a schedule which spreads them out during the day, or week , but also enables them to work as much as 20 hours a week. It takes a little time to tinker with the schedule and make it work. We've done it at Dickinson, we've done it at other...

WILKS: I'm not so sure it is. I don't want to pass judgment on it because I haven't really seen the honor code and the honor court operate. I really can't judge it. Maybe it would work here, I don't know. I'm happy to listen to arguments both ways on that one. ANNOTATIONS: Those are the big areas I wanted to ask you about. Like I said, this is going to come out about the middle of September, so we will have gone through a third or fourth of the semester, and the question I wanted to ask, what advice have you got? At that point, the first-year students have got their feet in the water, you've got the old guys like me who know we're going to get there and take the bar - what's your advice to people at that point - to all these different levels of experience? WILKS: I think you've got to...

SEPTEMBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS Page 5 —Letters To The Editor Murphy Praises Campa Dear Mr. Cantrell, I disagree with the letter signed by Professor Bauman and other members of the faculty, published in your August-1989 issue, and I write in support both of your editorial stance and the position taken by Phil Campa. In my opinion, you showed restraint and good judgment in refraining from entering into unseemly squabbles about who said what to whom. What you drew attention to was that the school made a representation to the A.B.A. about the ethnic composition of the faculty which, even if some- how tenuously defensible, was in fact disingenuous and calculated to lead external inquirers to a misleading conclusion. Who originated the idea is a matter of secondary importance. The real issue is whether South Texas College of Law will in the future take the question of minority representation on the faculty and within the student body seriously. If your article helps to encourage this, as I be...

Paget ANNOTATIONS SEPTEMBER 1969 STCL Finishes 7th at ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition South Texas College of Law finished 7th out of 132 law schools competing in the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition held in Washington D.C. this August. The STCL team consisted of Russell Brown, Sharon McCally, Colleen Barnett. David Medina was the team bailiff. Sharon McCally was named second best oralist at the competition and Russell Brown finished in the top 20 oralists. STCL has been to the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition eight out of the last nine years. This year, STCL was undefeated in the preliminary rounds but was eliminated in the quarter finals. In the quarter final round, STCL won the oral points but lost the round to Ohio State due to brief points. STCL ranked number one going into the competition when we defeated Oklahoma University in the regional competition.

SEPTEMBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS Page 7 Summer Intramural Mock Trial Winners HOUSTON - In a dazzling display of oratory battle, the work of a few elite courtroom warriors paid its reward. The summer intramural mock trial winners, Mark Murray and Colleen Barnett, in a split deci- sion, narrowly beat Carl Shaw and Angela Goodwin in this confrontation over a libel/s- lander case in the packed Garrett-Townes Hall. The law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Ballard, Onstead and Friend sponsored the annual competition. Dan Fontain, the former University of Houston mock trial coach and Sam Palermo, a South Texas alumnus, both of the sponsoring firm, judged the final round with Herbert Schwartz of Wood, Lucksinger and Epstein, and Lee Thibi- deaux (former Vice President of the Board of Advocates) of Weller, Wheelus and Greeri in Beaumont. The 10 top oralists gave the kind of valiant, persuasive argument that impressed the judges to give them recogni- tion. They are, in order of place: Kevin Jacks...

CLAYTON: Bruce Morris and Diane Werlein were appointed ANNOTATIONS: Annotations doesn't want you to pre-judge the Board of Gover- nors at this point, but Annotations would suspect that if you were in the same position as the prior SBA President that you're going to look pretty tough on somebody who doesn't fulfill their responsibility, live up to their responsibilities as far as what you require of them under the Constitution. CLAYTON: Yes, we would, and what we did at the start of the summer, we had an initial meeting where we sat down and we covered what each officer was supposed to do, and we went through his duties, so it's not like anyone's not aware of what they're supposed to be doing. Thus far, I'm very pleased with what they have done. Everybody has seemed to buckle down, we've really done a lot this summer, and every body see...

SEPTEMBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS Page 9 Clayton Continued from page 8 (5.) LOAN CHECKS FROM BUSINESS OFFICE: Clayton said the SBA passed on lo Wilks the complaints the SBA has heard from many students that the business office held their loan checks too long a period of time, which is generally seven working days. Clayton said the SBA requested that the holding period be reduced to 24 hours. (6.) FACULTY EVALUATION FORMS: Clayton said the SBA agreed with Dean Wilks that faculty evaluation should be handled in a different manner than it has in the past. "We hope that the evaluation will be turned over to the SBA and we will change the forms to a different format. They would be filled out in class and then they would be turned in directly to Dean Wilks by a student representative who takes them up in class. And, then after the posting of grades, Dean Wilks would sit down with the faculty member and go over the evaluation forms," Clayton said. ANNOTATIONS: Would you encourage students out the...

CLAYTON: Hattie Pace inherited that position when she was elected Vice- President, and Hattie's assured me she's going to go out there and flush out those outlines. ANNOTATIONS: Finally, let's talk about social events. CLAYTON: The social events are probably where we get the best participation and response. ANNOTATIONS: For the new students, and some of the older ones who have never participated, what are the two big social events that the SUA sponsors every year? CLAYTON: In the fall, the biggest event is the Halloween Party which we have every year, and in the spring we have the bigSpring Awards Banquet. We did sit down at the end of the summer semester and we came up with a social calendar which we think is going to spread out our priorities in a systematic way. It won't be too long between one, or too short a distance between one. We've al...

If you elect to print this letter, I believe that you should be aware of the fact that Professor Burton solicited endorsements from ALL the faculty members and that perhaps more faculty members elected not to endorse Bauman's letter than those who did endorse it. At last count, STCL had more than 40 full-time faculty members, exclud- ing deans, and numerous adjuncts. (A complete listing is found in the inside cover of the most recent ST Law Review) You may have received some criticism from Prof. Bauman, but you should know that his criticism is not shared by other members of the faculty.

New Grade Posting Policy Wilks Sets 30-Day Requirement By GREG CANTRELL ANNOTATIONS Editor Dean William L. Wilks has instituted a new pol- icy that will require members of the faculty to post their grades within 30 days after the last exam of the finals period "Faculty are now required to have their grades turned into the registrar within 30 days after the last exam given in that particular period," Wilks told ANNOTATIONS. "The grades will then be turned in to the registrar." Wilks said he was unsure what the former policy was but that he believed that it had been a six-week deadline within which faculty members were required to turn in their grades. "I know 30 days is a shortening," Wilks said. Asked if the new grade posting policy had been an issue worked out during his weekly meetings with the SBA, Wilks said: "I think that's a fair statement. Students all over the world want grades posted as quickly as possible. It affects, for example, the pro- bation because you want to know w...

OCTOBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS PAGES ■DICTA I The Roll! The Roll! By RAYMOND DANIEL ANNOTATIONS Assistant Editor Questions are always asked in law school. They're meant to be. It's part of the Socratic method by which we are supposed to learn to "think like lawyers." However, there is one question which has come up in nearly every class in which I've been enrolled. It cuts across the curriculum of torts, contracts and property and often is asked in upper level classes. The problem is, it should never have to be asked. The question: "Where's the roll?" Oh, it is often asked in various ways (Who has the roll?" - most effective when said in a whining voice) or (Have you sent the roll around?"), but it's still the same question. It bears repeating: this questin should never be asked. Law stu- dents, who, by the way, are paying $225 per hour to sit in class, have better things to do during this time than to wonder whether the roll is going to get to them or whether someone has signed it and ju...

I was visiting STCL recently and saw this survey (SBA Survey asking if you wuld contribute to STCL) and thought 1 must reveal something I doubt many of you know.

OCTOBER 1989 ANNOTATIONS PAGE 7 Letters (Continued...) ANNONYMOUS STUDENT COMMENTS ON QUOTAS Dear Editor: Students at STCL should demand that the administration consider in the employ ingof a law professor credentials based upon an applicant's academic excellence, legal experience, teaching or public speaking experience, whether or not the candidate has been published, volunteer work, and personality or energy. The varying degree to which the job applicants will meet these credentials are inevitably bound to be so diverse that a single candidate will prove to be an outstanding choice. I hope the Hispanic Law Students Association, as well as others, will reconsider their demand for emphasizing employment qualifications based upon race, color, creed, religion, or gender. I have no doubt that many Hispanics and people from other minority groups are qualified to be a professor at STCL. The issue is not, however, who is qualified; but who among all the candidates is the MOST qualified. E...

"We definite- ly should be well educated enough to ask questions," said Holly Fidler, a second year student and a member of the Board of Advocates. Dean Wilks said a student participated on a panel in an earlier congressional debate held at the college, but he said the mayoral debate was being sponsored by Channel 13 and the Houston Chronicle and "they called all the shots." However, Dean Treece managed to play a role in the debate. Treece tossed a coin to decide who went first and with the assistance of Carl Shaw. Treece acted as the official time keeper of the debate. The Board of Advocates also hosted a reception for the can- didates a few days before the debate. The reception featured an of- ficial acceptance by attorneys who represented the mayoral can- didates. David Berg, who represented Whit...
