The Hon. Meca Walker is currently serving as the 39th Chair of the Board of Directors for the Texas Bar College, which encourages and recognizes lawyers, judges and paralegals who go above and beyond their minimum annual CLE requirements. In the TBC’s 38-year history, Judge Walker is the 2nd African American to serve as Chair of the Board. Judge Walker’s term began on July 15, 2020 and will end on July 15, 2021.
“I was first introduced to the College as a baby lawyer many moons ago (early 2000’s). I’ve always been taught that doing the bear minimum would never be enough to succeed in life, which carried over into my philosophy in the legal profession.” stated Judge Walker after being named the Chair of the Board for Texas Bar College, who added, “When I learned about the TBC, it was my opportunity to do more than the minimum, so I figured out what I needed to do to qualify and set my sights on becoming a member. I enjoy learning new things, meeting new people and serving the community – so the TBC has been the perfect match. It’s truly an honor to rise in the ranks of this wonderful organization, to become a member of the board and eventually the Chair. This is not a position that I take lightly and I am committed to continuing to serve our legal community in a way that will make my ancestors proud.”
Judge Walker is currently a full-time mediator and arbitrator for family law matters in Harris and contiguous counties. She received her BA from Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA and her JD from Howard University School of Law in Washington, DC.
