A memory submitted by Lisa Trent Meacham, Class of 1993

My favorite law school faculty memory was of criminal law professor Walter Steele. Soon after the beginning of my law school career, Professor Steele leaned back in his chair, propped his cowboy boots up on his desk, and slowly turned his “steely” gaze upon his eager 1Ls. He reached down, stroked his white beard and with absolute certainty, instructed his students how to correctly pronounce “voir dire” in the state of Texas. It was beautiful.
