The Founding of BSL

  Birmingham School of Law has been graduating some of the finest lawyers for almost 100 years. Judge Hugh A. Locke founded BSL in 1915. The first years classes were held in Locke's office, First Methodist Church, and Birmingham College, where Locke was a trustee. Later the school met at the 20th Street YMCA.


During the Great Depression, classes were moved to the Jefferson County Courthouse, where the school operated until May 1996, when the school moved to the Frank Nelson Building at 205 20th Street North in downtown Birmingham. In 2014 BLS brought and renovated the J.F. Oates building. The building will be renamed the Hugh A. Locke Building.
