WASHINGTON � President Bush has announced he will nominate an Alabama employment lawyer, who also has experience as a prosecutor and in-house counsel, to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. If confirmed by the Senate, Constance Barker of Montgomery, Ala.’s Capell & Howard would fill the remainder of a five-year term through June 2011. Barker has practiced employment law at Capell & Howard since joining the firm as a shareholder in 1996. She represents a broad cross-section of commercial, manufacturing, retail and professional firms, including such clients as manufacturing plants, retail businesses, medical groups, physicians, real estate development and investment firms, and an architectural and engineering firm. Her efforts are equally focused on the prevention of discrimination claims and the defense of lawsuits. Barker’s trial experience began with four years as a criminal prosecutor, serving as assistant district attorney for the 11th Circuit and later for the 13th Judicial Circuit of Alabama. In 1985, she was selected to serve in the newly created position of in-house counsel for Mobile County Public Schools, that county’s largest employer and the 13th largest school system in the nation. She served in that position for 11 years, providing legal advice and counsel to the board and top management on matters involving discrimination, tenure law, contracts and areas of general corporate law. Barker received a juris doctor from the University of Alabama Law School in 1977.
