In this April 4, 2012 photo, U.S. District Judge W. Harold Albritton is pictured in his Montgomery, Ala., office. Alabama's law school _ which generally is ranked among the nation's best _ has become a Deep South outpost for justices since the late 1990s, when Albritton began pursuing justices to speak at his alma mater in a lecture series funded by his family. The Albritton Lecture Series has featured 11 different speeches by 10 justices since Justice Anthony Kennedy first ate ribs at famed Dreamland Bar-B-Que in 1996, and the chief justices of Australia, Canada and Israel also have spoken.
