Larry O. Putt
"Withhold no sacrifice, grudge no toil, seek no sordid gain, fear no foe. All will be..."
~Sir Winston Churchill's Benediction, In his own words
Professor Putt comes to Chase with a notable mixture of tenured faculty experience and a long and successful private practice. He obtained his bachelor's degree in political science at Mississippi State University and later obtained his J.D. and LL.M. degrees from the University of Mississippi.
Professor Putt has served as an associate professor of law at both Mississippi State University and Cumberland School of Law, and also as a faculty member of the Alabama Bar Institute for Continuing Legal Education at the University of Alabama.
In 1982 he was lured from his tenured faculty position at Cumberland to re-enter private practice as managing partner of Smyer, White & Putt in Birmingham, Alabama, where he specialized in corporate practice and real estate and environmental litigation.
A prolific author on water rights issues, Professor Putt is the recipient of two major U.S. Government research grants funded through the Water Research Institutes in Mississippi and Alabama and has helped to write Alabama's conservation and natural resources laws.
