“I have always wanted to speak up for those who could not speak for themselves.”
100 Years of Service
In 1915, Judge Hugh A. Locke had a vision for a non-traditional law school that would serve men and women who wanted to pursue a legal education but didn’t have either the time or money that a full-time law school required. His vision became a reality, and 100 years later Birmingham School of Law still serves students who otherwise could not pursue a career in law. Its long and storied history is a testament to Locke’s dream and to those who have continued to further its success.
