Hall of Fame to Take a Hiatus for 2020

The decision has been made to postpone the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony originally scheduled for May 1, 2020 to May of 2021.  The committee wanted the friends and family of the 2019 inductees to experience a public recognition ceremony, as all of the previous 75 inductees have enjoyed. The next selection of inductees will take place following the May 2021 induction ceremony, as in past years. Thus, the Hall of Fame, like so many other activities, will take a hiatus for calendar year 2020. The citations and plaques for our 2019 honorees have already been posted to the Alabama State Bar website.
