The Albritton Fund was established within the University of Alabama Law School Foundation in 1973. The fund commemorates the contributions of the Albritton family of Andalusia, Alabama, to the legal profession. Five generations of Albrittons have practiced law in Alabama, and four generations have graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law. The Albritton Fund provides academic support to the School of Law by sponsoring visits by distinguished practitioners, judges, and legal scholars. Federal District Judge W. Harold Albritton III, of the Middle District of Alabama, works with the School of Law to bring prominent jurists to his alma mater. The first lecture sponsored by the Albritton Fund was given by United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy in 1996.
The School of Law hosts podcasts of selected Albritton Lectures as well as podcasts from other offerings in the School of Law’s Endowed Lecture Series.
