The Alabama Law Foundation Announces New Fellows – January 27, 2017
At the start of every year, the Alabama Law Foundation selects Alabama Bar members who have shown outstanding dedication to their profession and their community by inviting them to become “Fellows.” The Fellows banquet, scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery, Alabama, is held in their honor. Plans include a cocktail hour at 5:45 followed by dinner at 7:00. During the event, those Fellows elevated to “Life Fellows” status are also recognized.
The Fellows program was established in 1995 to honor Alabama Bar members for outstanding service and commitment. Since no more than 1% of bar members are invited into fellowship, the selection committee chooses new members from an exceptional group of lawyers. President Board of Trustees of the Alabama Law Foundation Joe Fawal explains, “The Fellows of the Alabama Law Foundation are selected from the ranks of the Alabama State Bar and represent our brightest and best. The fact that they are selected is in and of itself an honor. But the contribution that they make in defense of the poor in civil matters in Alabama is a much greater honor.” Fellows are given the opportunity, as leaders in the legal community, to provide financial and personal support for the Alabama Law Foundation, the charitable arm of the Alabama State Bar.
