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

The atmosphere at Cumberland is unmatched. I feel like the people at Cumberland, whether it be students, faculty, or staff, are like family to me. Cumberland feels like coming home rather than going to school.

Why did you choose Cumberland School of Law?

When deciding on a law school, I wanted to attend a school that provided me all the opportunities I could get to become a litigator and, ultimately, to be the best attorney I could be. I found that Cumberland provides all of those opportunities.

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

Birmingham is such an exciting place to live. I love to walk through parks, go hiking, and try as much of the food here as possible. It is a bigger city, but it feels like a small town.

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities

Admission Ambassador, National Trial Team,  American Journal of Trial Advocacy , Alabama Student Bar Association 

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

Find a school that feels like home to you. Go somewhere that you feel will better you, not only academically, but personally as well. Applying to law school isn’t about having the most amazing personal statement or being the highest scorer on the LSAT; it is about realizing what you’re passionate about and working toward making the dream into reality.

What do you plan to do after graduation?

After graduation (and passing the Bar Exam), I plan to find a job somewhere where I feel I can make a difference in people’s lives. Whether it is staying in Birmingham or moving across the country, I just want to take part in being a change in people’s lives.
