Prior to the ODK event, Gov. Riley will address students at Samford's Cumberland School of Law at 2 p.m. in the moot courtroom, Robinson law building.
He will discuss Constitutional Reform during the program sponsored by Cumberland's Cordell Hull Speakers Forum lecture series.

Walthall is director of the State Constitutional Law Project, based at Cumberland. Brewer serves on the board of directors of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform. Pate and Sharp were appointed by Gov. Riley to serve as members of the Alabama Citizens Constitution Commission.
