Scott Garrett

Dean

B.A. Oglethorpe University
J.D. Birmingham School of Law

As Dean, Garrett will work with students regarding their matriculation, graduation plans, and the requirements of the Alabama State Bar and the Veterans Administration for veterans who are students. “The ultimate goal, of course, is to develop the students’ existing skills and to provide them with the tools they need to succeed, not only on the bar exam but also in day-to-day practice. I will work closely with both the students and our exemplary faculty to achieve these ends,” he says.
