Shawn Junkins Cole was recently invited to become an Alabama Law Foundation Fellow. The Alabama Law Foundation established the Fellows program in 1995 to honor members of the Alabama State Bar Association who have made significant contributions to their profession and their community. No more than 1% of bar members may become Fellows; therefore, the selection committee invites into fellowship an exceptional group of lawyers who have demonstrated their dedication to improving their communities and state.
The Alabama Law Foundation provides access to justice for all and respect for and understanding of the law. The Foundation is a charitable, tax-exempt organization composed of several separate programs, each providing ways for lawyers to better their profession and their communities. The Foundation makes annual grants to organizations that provide free legal aid to the poor in civil cases, for projects that improve the administration of justice and for law-related education. As the only charitable, tax-exempt organization affiliated with the Alabama State Bar, the Alabama Law Foundation has helped the state’s lawyers make a valuable difference in the lives of Alabama’s citizens.
