What do you think is the best thing about Cumberland?
The staff - they are the “secret sauce” at Cumberland. Whether it’s connecting you to alumni, listening to a mid-semester crisis, encouraging you to find supplements, or making a legal career plan – our staff supports our students in such an authentic way that you have no choice but to be welcomed, included, valued and successful!
Why did you choose Cumberland?
Cumberland’s well-respected reputation in the legal community in the city, state, and nation. Everyone notices a “Cumberland lawyer,” whether an interviewing attorney, opposing counsel, or judge. We are truly the best trial advocates.
What do you most enjoy about studying law in Birmingham? What do you like to do in Birmingham?
Birmingham has an extremely rich legal market – from local politics to some of the best law firms nationwide. I love going to coffee shops with a pile of books and causally meeting alumni – they always recognize Cumberland students, even if they’ve never met you. Those encounters often lead to the most organic encouragement (and sometimes, free coffee)!
