History

The Legal Counsel was previously the name given to the Legal Research Team. When it became necessary to have legal advice within the state of Alabama, it became clear that the term "Legal Counsel" may have been misleading and could have been taken as suggesting the role involved giving legal advice, which the Legal Research Team did not do. At that time, it was decided to split the legal team into the legal counsel and the Legal Research Team.
