Transcript Celebrating the big 5 - 0 Carolyn DePew 1997 marked the University of Houston Law Center's 50th anniversary, which was celebrated year-long. Fall brought the UH Law Center's 50th Anniversary Celebratory Series, five events marking the Law Center's half-century of growth and glory. The series began Sept. 26 with the program "The Media, Libel and Accountancy." The ethical responsibilities of journalists and the representation of attorney's questions were discussed. Lawyers, editors and journalists were present, commenting on the justice system's actions concerning libel. Channel 13 anchor Melanie Lawson and Texas Lawyer magazine editor Joe Calvie, were among the panelists. Many UH Law Center faculty, alumni and students attended the program. On Oct. 15, the Law Center paid tribute to Hollywood's portrayal of lawyers and the ethics lessons each film conveyed in the Law Center program "Reel Lawyers: Heroes and Rogues on the Silver Screen," a film and lecture presentation held at the historic River Oaks Theatre. University of California at Los Angeles law Professor Michael Asimov and 1967 UH Law Center graduate David "Best Boy" Berg led attendees on a collision course between Hollywood and ethics as they examined some of film's contemptible villains and inspirational champions. The third program of the anniversary series, held Oct. 21, was "The Swiss Banking Controversy: A Legal Response to a Moral Dilemma," which addressed the legal and moral questions concerning the recovery of Holocaust victims' property still held in Swiss financial institutions. These issues included the role Switzerland played in helping the German war effort. "In re: Women in Law-Stories of Texas' Legal Trailblazers" was presented Oct. 31 as the fourth event in the series. The panel consisted of firsts in their fields whose stories told of the trials associated with maintaining successful careers, marriages and children. They spoke of successes and heartaches that came with their womanhood, their sacrifices and lessons they learned. The zenith of the Law Center's series occured Nov. 1 with "Flashback and Fast Forward," an evening which included a reception and informal tours. Guests were invited to walk through a replica of the army barracks the Law Center was first housed in. Shadows of the past in the form of photos and clippings illustrating some of the Law Center's finest hours adorned the walls. Voices and events long since gone could almost be heard echoing in the minds of the attending alumni, some of whom graduated in the very first class, the class of 1950, and had attended classes in barracks much like the one constructed. The premiere of the documentary was another blast from the past, documenting the five decades the Law Center has grown through, from its founding in 1947 by Dean A.A. White in three cramped, abandoned army barracks, to the nationally reknown institute it is today under Dean Stephen Zamora. Zamora and others gave a tribute to alumni and former deans of the center. Zamora read an excerpt of a letter from White. "My only regret is that I can't be here in a thousand years to see the Law Center in its greatest glory," wrote White. Two alumni of the first graduating class, John Murray and Judge Jackson Smith, attended. The evening's presentation concluded with uproariously funny The Wizard ofLawz, which starred professors Sidney Buchanan and Tom Newhouse in the roles of Dorothy and Toto and was narrated by alumnus Richard "Racehorse" Haynes. Self-mocking lines included: "How can you get tired (of teaching) when you don't do anything!" and (when asked for heart and nerves) "No, forget it. There are some things even a wizard can't fix!" 140 February
