I first met Professor Willie Moore during the 1989-90 recruitment season for law faculty. Willie came to our law school to meet with the Dean, faculty and students. There was much excitement among the faculty concerning his visit to the law school. Many persons had already reviewed his credentials - valedictorian of his high school class; an honors graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; graduate of Yale University Law School; law clerk to Judge Damon J. Keith on the Federal Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit; former associate at Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp in Los Angeles, California, and at that time, a Public Deputy Defense Officer in the office of the Public Defender also in Los Angeles, California. In a relatively short period of time, Willie had distinguished himself as a student, lawyer and a person deeply committed to issues of social justice especially for children. Willie came to our law school and fulfilled the promise demonstrated by his interview and qualifications.
