What do you think is the best thing about Cumberland?

The best thing about Cumberland is its students. Cumberland’s students work incredibly hard but remain grounded. Cumberland’s faculty is also fantastic.

Why did you choose Cumberland?

I chose Cumberland because I want to practice law in Birmingham. I am very grateful to have such an incredible law school in my backyard.

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

The Birmingham legal community is a tight knit one. The Cumberland contingent is especially tight knit. I always enjoy running into another Cumberland lawyer. I enjoy playing soccer here in town. Also, the restaurant scene is incredible for a relatively small city.

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities

Birmingham Premier League Soccer; M.B.A. candidate – Samford University Brock School of Business; Book Club; Mercedes-Benz U.S. International Inc. intern

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

Take the summer classes before the start of your 1L year! They were so helpful. I made friends and gained a better understanding of what it meant to be a law student and how law school really works.

What do you plan to do after graduation? 

I hope to practice transactional law here in Birmingham.
