More about Alabama

Alabama is located in the Southeastern United States. Alabama is the largest state by area, and also the most populous. Alabama boasts the largest number of inland waterways in any state, with 1,500 miles.

Alabama is also known as the "Heart of Dixie", and the "Cotton State". The state tree of Alabama is the longleaf pin pine. The state flower is the camellia. Alabama's capital city is Montgomery. Huntsville is Alabama's largest city in terms of population and area. Mobile is the oldest city in Alabama. Greater Birmingham, Alabama's largest metropolitan region, is also its economic center.

Despite the rise of major industries, rural white interests dominated the state legislature from the beginning to the middle of the 20th century. Urban interests and African Americans were significantly underrepresented during this period. The state was a key focal point for the civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1950s, thanks to high-profile events like the Selma To Montgomery march. Alabama's economy expanded with the addition of new industries during and after World War II. The development of the aerospace industry would be a key part of Alabama's economic growth over the next 20 years. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is located in Huntsville. Alabama's 21st-century economy is built on automobiles, finance, tourism, and manufacturing.

About the Alabama Legal System

Alabama State Bar (ASB), is the official statewide association of Alabama lawyers. The programs and activities of the Alabama State Bar have been serving the public since 1923 when it was established by an act in the legislature. It promotes professional responsibility and competence among its members, improves the administration of justice, and increases public respect for and understanding of the law.

Alabama State Bar headquarters is located at 415 Dexter Avenue, Montgomery. In 1964, bar members donated pledges and money to build a debt-free headquarters building for the bar. The furnishings were paid for. Six offices, a library, and an assembly room were part of the original building. A print shop was added in 1969.

The Dexter Avenue headquarters was outgrown by 1980. Bar members donated their time to furnish another building. The home of the bar's Center for Professional Responsibility was located in the building at 1019 South Perry Street. It is directly across from Governor's Mansion.

The $3.5 million addition to Bar Headquarters Building was completed in fall of 1992. A little over a third of this cost was covered by member donations. The new addition covered 32,000 square feet and included space for the Center for Professional Responsibility. Renovated was the original headquarters building, which included an office for the state bar president and three conference spaces that can be used by state bar members or state bar entities.

In 1999, a portion of the third floor was unoccupied and used as office space for several new programs. A state-of-the-art video conference room has been added to the third floor. It is available for use by sections and bar committees. This facility is available for client teleconferences or tele-depositions at a reasonable cost to attorneys. In 2002, the facility underwent major renovations on its first and second floors. Additionally, there was additional parking located across the street from the center. As part of the $626,000 renovations to the first floor and the second floor, additional office space was added on the third floor in 2008.

The headquarters of the state bar houses various public recognitions of judges, lawyers, and other non-lawyers. These public recognitions reflect dedication to the profession, judicial excellence, and the public service nature of the legal profession.

The state bar has an annual budget exceeding $6 million. Bar activities are not supported by tax dollars. Every practicing attorney pays an annual license fee that goes into a special trust account. The legislature allocates money from this trust fund to the Alabama State Bar.
