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.
