ByrneBradley R. Byrne, a partner in the firm’s Business & Commercial Transactions Practice Group in the Mobile office, was quoted in the January 11, 2013, edition of the Birmingham Business Journal. The article titled, "Degrees of Success in a Tough Economy," discussed the economic downturn and how the recession has impacted the choices of today’s college students, especially when choosing a field of study. "The economy is driving their choices more and more," Byrne said, noting that many of the top majors including biology, nursing and psychology, all require "a fairly high level of mathematics and science." In order to prepare students for these fields Byrne believes we "have to start focusing more high school and middle school – on how we are preparing students in those areas."
