Montgomery, Ala. – The Alabama State Bar Association has selected Beasley Allen attorney Chris D. Glover for inclusion in Class V of its annual Leadership Forum. Only 30 lawyers were chosen for this prestigious program. The Leadership Forum is designed for young lawyers, with a goal of enhancing their role in the future of the state’s communities, both as policymakers and in their profession.
Leadership Forum participants are selected based on their demonstration of outstanding leadership qualities and service to their communities. In order to graduate from the Leadership Forum, participants are required to attend five separate training sessions, and will spend approximately 60 hours in meetings and workshops with prominent business and community leaders including Gov. Bob Riley, Former Gov. Albert Brewer, Morris Dees, co-founder, Southern Poverty Law Center; Dr. Wayne Flint, Auburn University; Chancellor Bradley Byrne; and Stephen F. Black, Center for Ethics and Social responsibility.
Glover has dedicated his practice to protecting the rights of victims and survivors of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death. He has represented individuals and their families in a wide range of serious injury and death claims, including those that were the result of defective products, car and commercial truck and workplace accidents. He has been recognized by his peers as a leader by being elected officer to numerous professional associations, including the Chair of the American Association for Justice New Lawyer’s Division, Chair of the Emerging Leader’s Division of the Alabama Association for Justice, and Officer of the Southern Trial Lawyer’s Association.
Glover graduated from Cumberland School of Law and practiced law in Birmingham, Alabama for a number of years prior to joining Beasley Allen in 2008. He is married to the former Erin Henley and they have two children, Kaitlyn and Andrew. Glover is a native of Albertville, Ala., and graduated from Albertville High School in 1994. He is the son of Jerry and Karen Glover and son-in-law of Lowell and Deborah Galloway.
State Bar President J. Mark White of Birmingham (White Arnold & Dowd, P.C.) said, “In addition to developing new leaders, the program will share ways participants can implement those skills to better support their communities and the profession, encourage diversity in the practice of law, and discuss ethical issues.”
