How It Got Started

In 2017, our founders Spencer Pennington, Sophia Warner and Asia Hayes saw a hole in the pre-law community at The University of Alabama.

Together they formed the Legal Research Club, an organization aimed at exposing pre-law students to legal research and publishing the Capstone Journal of Law and Public Policy, the first undergraduate run law review in the state of Alabama. 

In 2019, the Legal Research Club launched the Capstone Commentary, an online platform for students interested in legal research to test their hand at writing about the law.
