What do you think is the best thing about Cumberland School of Law?

The best thing about Cumberland is our community. Cumberland defies the nature of most law schools and is truly a family away from home. The students and administration are a welcoming body that are fundamental to the unique experience we have at Cumberland. 

Why did you choose Cumberland School of Law?

I chose Cumberland because of its reputation as a welcoming and inclusive law school environment. I knew many students and alumni of Cumberland that spoke highly of the relationships they formed while in law school and the sense of community that Cumberland offered. The sense of community and family at Cumberland drew me here.

What do you most enjoy about studying law in Birmingham? What do you like to do in Birmingham?

The best part about studying law in Birmingham is the opportunities it provides. Being in the largest city in Alabama, we have access to one of the largest legal hubs and job markets in the southeast. The social life and food scene in Birmingham is hands down the best in the state and possibly the area. There is so much to do, so much to see, and so many people to meet.

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities

Alabama Student Bar Association, Career Development Advisory Board (CDAB), Federalist Society, Parham H. Williams Trial Competition, Transactional Law Society

If you could give any advice to your pre-law school self, what would you say? 

Take a deep breath, all will be fine. Law school is not as scary as it seems.  If you put in the work, you will be rewarded with opportunity and success.

What do you plan to do after graduation?

After I graduate, I plan to return to Washington, D.C., and Capitol Hill as a dedicated public servant working in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, or for a Congressional committee. I hope to serve my community, my state and my country in any capacity I can.
