LEGAL LINES WITH LOCKE MEREDITH SHOW # 133, GUEST: FREDDIE PITCHER
Show # 133, Guest: Freddie Pitcher Attorney Locke Meredith interviews Southern University Law Center Chancellor & Retired Judge, Freddie Pitcher Jr, and discusses improvements to the Southern Law Center. Judge Pitcher is originally from Baton Rouge, and finished Law School at Southern in 1973. He practiced general law with Judge Ralph Tyson for about 10 years after graduating from Law School. After this, Judge Pitcher became the first African American elected to Baton Rouge City Court, then he was elected to the 19th Judicial District Court, and then was elected to the First Circuit Court of Appeals, without opposition. He was the first African American in Baton Rouge to fill each of these positions. After leaving the City Court, Judge Pitcher was the only African American judge for the first six years, then Judge Tyson followed, and others. Judge Pitcher had been an adjunct professor for a while at Southern, before being asked to be Chancellor. Next, Meredith asks Judge Pitcher to explain the difference between difference types of judges. Judge Pitcher was not interested when the applications went out, but upon a deadlocked decision panel, and much encouragement from his peers, when the application re-opened, Judge Pitcher applied for the job. When Judge Pitcher stepped into his new position as Chancellor, he found the Southern Law Center to be in a position of possibly not becoming re-accredited by the American Bar Association, which would be detrimental to the school. Judge Pitcher came in knowing this situation, and he had four years to prepare the school for the next re-accreditation in 2007. When he was elected, there were only two professors teaching 140 students Legal Writing, whereas the recommended student teacher ratio is 25:1. Therefore Judge Pitcher increased the Legal Writing faculty from two to eight. BAR passage rates were also a problem, especially on first-time takers. Longitudinally, Southern Law Center has been doing decent, meaning after taking the BAR a few times, their students were passing, roughly 94% of them, but first time takers were performing poorly. He worked increase this. Other changes Judge Pitcher made were to start a night school and to start a study abroad program. Southern Law Center is partnered with the University College of London. Students get to attend a six-week summer program at this school, giving them four courses exposing them to international law of various forms. Thanks to Judge Pitcher, Southern's BAR is now all essay. Despite increasing their admission standards, Judge Pitcher emphasizes the importance of Southern Law Center's mission to provide access and opportunity to underrepresented and undeserved populations.
