Cordell Hull Speaker's Forum

Posted: Fri, 09/12/2008 - 12:09

Alabama Attorney General Troy King will address students at the Cordell Hull Speaker’s Forum scheduled Thursday, September 18 at 11:00 AM in the Moot Court Room. King has served as Alabama’s Attorney General since March of 2004.

Attorney General King is a staunch proponent of the death penalty. When many states voluntarily suspended executions during U.S. Supreme Court litigation over lethal injection, King continued to seek the setting of execution dates in Alabama. Alabama’s death penalty system has recently come under fire from a United Nations report in 2008 and an American Bar Association report in 2006. Despite recent criticisms, Attorney General King is among the leading defenders of Alabama’s Death Penalty System.

The topic of Attorney General King’s presentation will be the importance of the death penalty in the State of Alabama.
