Atticus Finch Society
“…in this country our courts are the great levelers, and in our courts all men are created equal.” (From To Kill a Mockingbird, by character Atticus Finch)
Alabama lawyers have long admired the character Atticus Finch, from Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, as the epitome of the type of professional that lawyers strive to be. The Alabama Law Foundation strives to ensure access to justice for all residents of Alabama, whether they are rich or poor.
The Atticus Finch Society’s initial goal is to build the Alabama Law Foundation’s endowment to provide stable funding for programs providing civil legal aid. Charter Members commit to a $10,000 commitment, payable over three or five years.
The Alabama Law Foundation calls upon the lawyers in Alabama to support the Alabama Law Foundation’s drive for a source of permanent funding through the Atticus Finch Society.
