Vol. 4,


The Litigation Section of the State Bar has increased its membership to 3,144, which
shows the continued interest of lawyers in the work of our Section. We hope to increase the
membership in the coming year so we may become the largest Section of the State Bar.
Our Section is presently the 4th largest in the Bar
The Council of the Litigation Section met three times during my term and it decided that
the Litigation Section should present an annual seminar the first week of February in San
Antonio, Texas at the Four Seasons Hotel. The first Litigation Update Seminar was held on
February 8th and 9th, 1985.
This Section has taken a very strong position in supporting the Continuing Legal Edu-
cation programs of the State Bar of Texas. We have co-sponsored the Advanced Courses
in Civil Trial, The Deceptive Trade Practice Seminars, Saturday Morning in Court, and we
will continue to support these excellent programs in the future.
Our program at the State Bar Convention in Dallas will be highlighted by Professor Irving
Younger He will present a two hour program on The Trial of Alger Hiss. Based upon his
national reputation of excellence in the field of litigation we anticipate having a full house for
his presentation.
It has been a pleasure for me to work with the lawyers who make up the Litigation Section
Council. We are fortunate to have individuals who represent a variety of backgrounds in-
volving litigation who are dedicated to the support of the Litigation Section. I want to thank
Ric Handler for making my job alot easier since he assumed many of the responsibilities of
the Section. I also want to thank Pat Hazel for his work regarding the editing and publication
of The Advocate. I have received unsolicited comments from lawyers throughout the State
who have stated that they have used The Advocate in preparation of their respective cases
and that it has been of great benefit to them.
There are many attorneys in this State involved in litigation who have not joined this
Section. I hope that they will become members of the Section and that they will join with us
in building this Section into the largest and most viable in the State Bar

The editorial dream is a nightmare of sorts. It envisions so many good articles on hand
to print that you can't make a choice between them. As yet I haven't had it. What has been
submitted to me would qualify for the dream but the numbers are still lacking. I want to
encourage you readers to consider writing something yourselves and to encourage others
you know and believe have something important to say to do the same, If we are to get out
three more issues before the end of this year, a lot of those articles are needed. MAKE MY
CAVEAT: The section on legislation is always subject to changes as long as the legisla-
ture is in session. As this issue is being printed they remain in Special Session. Also, there
may have been some last minute additions to bills which passed of things which are listed
in this issue as failed. I have tried to avoid this as much as possible. For those of you
interested in Family Law, you will note no legislation is included. This is highly misleading.
There was so much important legislation in this area that I have asked Professor Jack
Sampson to write up a summary of that legislation for our next volume. Those of you familiar
with his style can look forward to that coming up soon.
J. Patrick Hazel
