Cumberland School of Law welcomes visitors all year long, on campus and virtually. We look forward to visiting with you soon.
“Visiting” in the south means more than just taking a trip somewhere, it can also mean to sit down and have a chat. At Cumberland School of Law, we welcome visitors all year long, on campus or virtually.
We invite you to “visit” with us using the method you prefer. Touring campus; sitting in on a law school class; talking with current students, admissions officers, and faculty—all will help you establish a genuine sense of place and experience.
Reservations for a visit are recommended, and required during the pandemic, to ensure that we are able to tailor your visit to your interests and needs.
In addition to your future visit, we hope the resources provided here will be helpful as you decide where to pursue your law degree. If you have any questions, or are ready to schedule your visit, we encourage you to contact our Office of Admission.
Prelaw societies, student organizations, or undergraduate institutions interested in planning a day visit, mini open house, or Zoom information session for your group can make arrangements by contacting the Office of Admission.
Cumberland School of Law hosts two open house events each year, typically in November and February. During one of our admission open houses, prospective students will tour the law school, hear from faculty and students during Q&A discussion panels, learn about scholarships and fellowships, discover the law school’s programs and centers, and gain a thorough understanding of the admission process. Registration is required for open houses.
Campus is only minutes from the heart of Birmingham, home to nearly 5,000 legal professionals, many of whom are Cumberland lawyers. In addition to offering outstanding opportunities for networking, internships and externships, and job placement, the “Magic City” offers a rich history and a variety of activities to engage in during your time in law school.
The Cumberland School of Law Admission Ambassadors invite prospective students to a virtual informational session on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. CST to answer any questions you may have. Topics will include the admission process, what happens once you’re admitted, waitlist questions, personal statement questions, character and fitness, and general application issues.
Prior information sessions were hosted by our Office of Admission to educate prospective students on the admission process and to introduce them to Cumberland School of Law, our students, faculty and alumni. These sessions are available to view below.
Just starting the application process? Want to talk to someone face-to-face before setting up an on campus or virtual visit? Already decided to apply but want to learn more? Our admission representatives travel across the country to visit students at select institutions. Check our schedule and meet us at a law fair near you.
