Judge Wayne Alley recently spoke about professionalism and his legal career to the Legal Methods and Externship classes at the College. Judge Alley is a retired Brigadier General, former Dean of the OU College of Law, retired judge for the Western District of Oklahoma, and is currently a Jurist in Residence at OU. He told summer law students about his involvement in the Lt. William Calley appeal during the Vietnam War, commenting on the differences between civil and military tribunals. Judge Alley also described his duties as a federal judge, providing insight on judges' preferences. He gave several examples of good lawyering skills, and the students learned a little Oklahoma trivia as well. A fax from the Federal Courthouse in Oklahoma City to Judge Alley was the last facsimile transmitted before the Oklahoma City Bombing at the Murrah building on April 19, 1995. Civility, preparedness, honesty and diligence were common themes during his discussions. "Thank you for inviting the Judge to speak," one student wrote, "It was a phenomenal presentation."
