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.

I initially visited Cumberland because it is located in a great city with a thriving legal market. It immediately felt like home because of the warmth and kindness of everyone I met. After taking a tour and meeting a few students and faculty members, I knew Cumberland was the place for me.

Cumberland’s focus on ethical practice was the determining factor in my law school decision. Realizing I wanted to practice law in Alabama, I knew I would be fortunate to practice in a closely-knit legal community with unique access to both local state and federal judges. Having a reputation for being a respected and ethical attorney is of utmost importance.

I chose Cumberland because several of my mentors in undergrad are alumni and they had a huge impact on my life. Another reason I chose Cumberland was the location. Birmingham is a great city that just keeps getting better all the time.

I chose Cumberland because of their strong reputation, the warm welcome I received from the admission staff, and the quick response from the admission committee after I submitted my application. The financial aid package was also a factor.

I chose Cumberland because of its students. The personalities of the Ambassadors and the students that I met during Admitted Students Weekend played a major role in my choosing of Cumberland.

I chose Cumberland because of the familial feel; everyone at Cumberland couldn’t stop talking about how much of a close-knit community Cumberland was. I was excited to experience that for myself.

I chose Cumberland because of the nationally ranked trial team and the friendly environment of the school. I initially was interested in Cumberland because of the prestigious trial team, but stayed because of the faculty.

I chose Cumberland for its amazing Trial Advocacy program. In my first year, I participated in four of Cumberland’s trial competitions. Cumberland focuses on developing real world skills. Intramural and national competitions provide students with the opportunity to improve those skills.

I chose Cumberland because I wanted something different. I attended a huge metropolitan undergraduate university and wanted to feel like a person instead of a student ID number. As soon as I toured Cumberland, I knew this was the place for me.

I chose Cumberland because I felt at home when I visited. I knew right away that Cumberland was the only school I needed to visit. I chose Cumberland because I want to start my legal career in Birmingham, and the school has a sterling reputation here.
