continue to develop the fair We want it to be a regional destination he said We have told the community we want to create the cleanest most family friendly event in America December 21 2015 Professor Fair Discusses the Effect of Browder v Gayle Professor Bryan Fair recently discussed the effect of Browder v Gayle with WBHM 90 3 Once Brown is decided the question is what is the scope of Brown Fair said In this new lawsuit known as Browder v Gayle two judges agreed that Montgomery s segregated buses violated the 14 th amendment The Supreme Court later agreed The meaning of Browder is much broader than Montgomery he said The meaning of Browder is that you can t have separate systems of schooling You can t have separate systems of transportation You can t have separate systems of swimming pools or parks or golf courses All of that comes out of this next step For more read Plaintiff in Landmark Civil Rights Montgomery Bus Case Shares Her Story December 17 2015 New Field New Corn Anthology Features Research by Young Scholars Eight University of Alabama School of Law alumni have been published in New Field New Corn an anthology of research papers that explores Alabama legal history and the state s legal and judicial figures The anthology published by Quid Pro Books in New Orleans covers Alabama legal history from the pre Civil War era through the civil rights era and the essays were first written when the contributors were students at UA Law These are youthful scholars and yet their work is original and it significantly adds to our knowledge said Paul M Pruitt Jr Special Collections Librarian in the Bounds Law Library Pruitt edited the anthology and penned the introduction Alabama Legal History as a Field of Study while Professor Bryan Fair wrote the foreword Critiquing our Present Interrogating our Past Nearly 25 years ago Fair taught his first seminar at the Law School on Race Racism and American Law His class read portions of Derrick Bell s casebook and the students prepared research papers He said he was honored and delighted when the editors of the UCLA National Black Law Journal agreed to publish the collection of essays along with one of his articles Since then many faculty at Alabama Law have supported students in their quest to publish scholarly articles Fair said Pruitt s New Field New Corn is an exceptional illustration of such an academic collaboration Seven of the essayists completed their research while enrolled in Alabama Legal History a course taught by Professors Tony Freyer and Pruitt An eighth writer was chosen from Fair s seminar on Equal Protection The title of the anthology is derived from an adage credited to Sir Edward Coke who was quoting Geoffrey Chaucer when he asserted Assuredly out of the old fields must spring and grow the new corn We re only beginning to scratch the surface Pruitt said The more background we have the better we are able to judge assess and draw conclusions The essays cover a variety of topics from economics race education and concerns of the legal profession to legal doctrine to illustrate how those issues influenced Alabama s development While some of the contributors chose topics based on scholarly interests a few researched and wrote about how Alabama s laws affected their hometowns Courtney Cooper 14 a native of Eutaw researched the evolution of the Alabama Constitution the disenfranchisement that was built into the constitution and how the constitution was illegally ratified I had concerns about the constitution the fact that it was illegally ratified and that we continue to live under something that does have some corruption behind it said Cooper an attorney for Dodson Gregory LLP in Birmingham Cooper grew up in Alabama s Black Belt region where the effects of the 1901 constitution which deliberately disenfranchised black and poor white voters are still felt today She began researching the constitution while an undergraduate at UA and she said she was surprised to learn several U S Supreme Court cases before 1901 encouraged what was ultimately done by Alabama legislators Ellie Campbell 13 researched Strange v State the first case in Alabama where an all white jury convicted a white man for killing a black man in Anniston in 1965 Campbell a native of Anniston shaped her essay around the trial and what had been happening in Alabama in the years preceding the trial so that a white jury could convict Hubert Damon Strange of killing Willie Brewster as he drove three friends home one evening Campbell returned to her hometown and interviewed Judge Robert Parker because her father James M Campbell who also practices law in Anniston knew him and was familiar with the case As she researched the essay Campbell discovered her grandfather James J Campbell was among a group of more than 250 Anniston citizens who paid for a full page advertisement in the Anniston Star announcing a 20 000 reward for information on the killing That was kind of a turning point said Ellie Campbell the Reference and Instruction Law Librarian at the Grisham Law Library at the University of Mississippi Prior to the mid 1960s middle class white folks in the South had been silent They didn t like the violence but they didn t protest it too much because they didn t want to be targets Paul Rand 13 researched the way that 19th Century Alabama courts handled what are called parol problems or the admissibility of evidence that contradicts a written document The issue arises when a contract says one thing but someone involved says what the contract says doesn t reflect the agreement Rand found the law on how to handle those situations changed before
