Burr & Forman Partner Jack P. Stephenson, Jr. Elected to Council of Alabama Law Institute

February 28, 2012

Burr & Forman is pleased to announce that Birmingham partner Jack P. Stephenson, Jr. has been elected to the Council of the Alabama Law Institute, the governing body of the Institute.

This prestigious elected position is awarded to just six practicing lawyers from each of the seven congressional districts in the state of Alabama.

The Alabama Law Institute works closely with the Legislative Reference Service in the annual proper placement and codification acts passed by the Legislature within the Code of Alabama. The Legislative Reference Service prepares the vast majority of bills for each session for the Legislature, while major code revision work, such as revision of an entire section of law, is handled by the Alabama Law Institute.

“Jack is a tremendous talent and has a keen insight into legislative issues in Alabama,” said W. Lee Thuston, managing partner of Burr & Forman LLP. “We are confident that his leadership skills and incomparable experience will help him excel in this new role to the benefit of all citizens in our great state.”

Its diverse membership includes members of the Alabama State Bar Association, the judges of the Alabama Supreme Court, courts of appeals, and circuit courts, federal judges domiciled in Alabama, full-time law faculty members of law schools and lawyer members of the Legislature.
