The Cordell Hull Speakers Forum of Samford  University’s Cumberland School of Law will host Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne Thursday, Jan. 28.

 Byrne, a Republican, will speak at 12:15 p.m. in the moot courtroom of Robinson Hall law building. The public is invited free of charge. A reception will follow his remarks.

Most recently chancellor of Alabama’s two-year college system (2007-09), Byrne formerly served in the state senate and on the Alabama State Board of Education. A graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law, he has practiced law in his native Mobile for more than 25 years.
