CHAIRMAN'S REPORT
Continually improving the quality of THE ADVOCATE is one of the foremost goals of
the Section. In this regard, the Section is constantly searching for articles that will
be of interest to the legal profession. We would invite you to contact Ric Handler,
Chairman of our Publications Committee, in Dallas at 214-653-4500 or Patrick Hazel,
Editor in Chief, in Austin at 512-471-5151 if you have an article that you think would
be of interest.
Not only do we solicit articles that would be of help to our fellow attorneys, but we
also solicit your ideas on the format and types of articles that should appear in THE
ADVOCATE. It is only by obtaining your input that we can have a Section publica-
tion that is truly meaningful to all the lawyers in the State. Our Section has already
grown to be the fifth largest of the 26 Sections of the State Bar. We want to make it
an even better and larger Section.
At the present time, our Section is taking the lead in planning and implementing a
program sponsored by the Section and the State Bar of Texas on pre-trial prepara-
tion. This program will be presented April 14 through 16 in Houston. Terry Totten-
ham has been appointed Program Chairman for the Litigation Section for our June
1983 meeting. From all reports, it will be an outstanding program and everyone is
encouraged to attend.
Let me emphasize that this is your Section, and that we want it to be of benefit to
you. For this to be possible, we need to know your thoughts and your suggestions
as to what could be done to make the Section of more service to you. Please feel
free to contact me at any time. My number is 712-237-3102.
Eugene A. Cook
Chairman
EDITOR'S NOTES
In September we shall have the new Texas Rules of Evidence; extensive revision of
the rules governing discovery are being seriously considered; many new judges are
now on both our Courts of Appeals and the Supreme Court; and the Legislature is in
session! Litigators cannot languish in the tried and comfortable. We must con-
stantly learn and create.
How can THE ADVOCATE help you? I believe the articles need to be timely, short
and practical if they are to assist the busy litigator. As your new Editor in Chief, I
shall attempt to build upon the fine beginning.
Let me know how I am doing. After all, I work for you.
J. Patrick Hazel
Editor in Chief
