Chancellor Freddie Pitcher, Jr. Freddie Pitcher, Jr, (Judge Ret.) was appointed Chancellor and Full Professor of Law at the Southern University Law Center (SULC) in November 2002. Chancellor Pitcher's more than 25 years of teaching experience has included adjunct professorships at the Southern University Law Center and at LSU's Paul M. Hebert Law Center. Pitcher has been appointed to a three-year term of the American Bar Association Law School Legal Education Section's Committee on Professionalism and has been named to two ABA Site Evaluation Team for Reaccrediting Law Schools, one of which he serves as chair.
Under his leadership, the SULC has thrived. He has initiated a part-time evening division, created a distance learning partnership with New York Law School to offer an on-line curriculum; established a certificate program in Public Interest Law; added a Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic and a Domestic Violence Law Clinic to its successful Clinical Education Program; offered its first Summer Studies Abroad Program to London, England; attracted a donation to establish the J.J. McKernan Distinguished Lecture Series; significantly increased in size and number faculty summer research stipends; and increased the Law Center's endowed professorships from two to eight.
Chancellor Pitcher is a member of the American Bar Association, National bar Association, Louisiana State Bar Association, and the Baton Rouge Bar Association. He is admitted to practice before the United States Eastern, Middle, and Western District Courts of Louisiana and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
He received his undergraduate degree in political science from Southern University in 1966 and his Juris Doctor Degree from Southern University School of Law in 1973. While in law school, he was elected president of the Student Bar Association and won distinction as an outstanding moot court competitor. Chancellor Pitcher was also the founding vice president of the Southern University Law Center's American Inns of Court Chapter.
Pitcher has a career of many firsts. He became the first African American elected to a judgeship in Baton Rouge with his election to the City Court in a citywide election in April 1983. He was the first African American elected to the 19th Judical District in a parish-wide election in 1987. In 1992, he achieved another first with his election to the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals, without opposition. Pitcher has also served as an associate justice ad hoc on the Louisiana Supreme Court. Chancellor Pitcher authored close to 200 judicial opinions while serving on the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeal.
Upon his retirement from the bench in May 1997, Pitcher was named a partner in the Baton Rouge office of Phelps Dunbar LLP, an international law firm. His practice focused on the areas of commercial, casualty, and employment litigation. He was also a member of the firm's appellate practice group.
Prior to his election to the bench, Judge Pitcher was the principal partner in the firm Pitcher, Tyson, Avery and Cunningham. He has also served as a special counsel in the Office of the Attorney General for the State of Louisiana, and as an assistant district attorney for East Baton Rouge Parish.
