I was given the opportunity to teach law school at Samford University following completion of law school (JD, Cumberland) and obtaining a post graduate degree (LL.M. at NYU). While on the law faculty Chief Justice Heflin of the Alabama Supreme Court appointed me to serve as director of the Permanent Study Commission on Alabama's Judicial System. Ultimately the Study Commission activity served to offer a constitutional amendment to the Alabama constitution which reorganized the Alabama judicial system. Following the implementation of the Study Commission report I received an appointment to serve as director of the southern regional office of the National Center for State Courts (four years service) and as director of the administrative office of the courts in Kentucky (two years service). I returned to active faculty status at Samford in 1981. During 1981-2008 I served as the Lucille Beason Professor of Law and Director of International Programs. I organized and implemented Cumberland's Master of Comparative Law Degree Program and conducted the law school's study abroad activity in England and Brazil prior to my retirement. Samford University continues to conduct these programs. I am honored to continue my relationship with Samford's Cumberland School of Law as Professor Emeritus.
