The Jones School of Law was founded in 1928 by Montgomery County Circuit Judge Walter B. Jones. The law school is named after Thomas G. Jones, an alumnus of the Virginia Military Institute, veteran of the Civil War, Democratic politician, and Governor of Alabama.
Graduates from the law school have done extremely well in the previous years on the Alabama Bar Exam. The bar passage rate, for first time takers of the July 2006 bar exam, was 97.2.
In addition to a rigorous cirriculum, the law school has several clinics, which provide students more hands on experience and real world legal experience. Students may participate in the school's Mediation Clinic, the Family Violence Clinic and the school's Elder Law Clinic. The law school recently received a federal grant which provides funding for the school's Elder Law Clinic. The Elder Law Clinic allows students to counsel and provide legal advice to elderly citizens in the middle Alabama region.
