Class Composite Update

A photo of Alumni looking at Alabama Law Class Composites

In 2019, David (’00) and Laura Drinkard Hodge (’00) made a generous donation to the Law School Foundation to create the Class Composite Preservation Project Fund. The goal of this fund is to digitize and preserve the composite photos from graduating classes throughout the years, making them accessible for many future generations to view.

As time passes, the composites are at risk of fading out, getting damaged, or even being lost due to natural disasters. While most of the composites are in good shape, the Law School is taking preventive actions to ensure that these pieces of history are preserved and that our students and alumni are not forgotten. Read more about the Law School’s efforts to preserve the class composites here.

The Law School is currently in the process of digitizing all class composites. Upon completion of this project, the digitized photos will be prominently displayed at the entrance of the Law School and the original copies will be preserved in our archives. Until the process is complete, the original composites may be viewed by appointment in the Bounds Law Library.  Please contact David Durham to schedule an appointment.
