Baylor Law School has a long and proud history, and that translates into some great stories.

In this month’s Rocket Docket, we bring you the story of Louise “Lou” Boucher (JD ’50). More than a year ago we discovered a photo in Baylor University’s Texas Collection that showed a Practice Court session circa 1949-1950. In the photo you can see the back of a young female student. Her identity was a mystery until this past spring, when Lou recognized herself in the photo.

At a time when women were expected to remain in the home, Lou forged a career in law and continues to serve her community in Dallas.

This month’s Rocket Docket also brings you the story of James Craig (JD ’07), who recently was sworn in as the Lynn County attorney. Before James ever entered a courtroom he performed center stage as an opera singer.
