Ask any current student or alumnus what makes Cumberland School of Law different from other institutions, and answers will always include the quality and strength of relationships students build with the faculty and staff. 

Cumberland School of Law faculty represent multi-dimensional aspects of the legal field and have a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience. Additionally, the professional staff at Cumberland School of Law, many of whom have law degrees themselves, will help ensure your law school experience is welcoming and enjoyable.
