Cumberland enables lawyers to answer the call to become life-changing advocates.
Cumberland School of Law’s trial advocacy program changes the lives of its students who, in turn, change the lives of others through their advocacy. Alumna Sara Williams ’06 shares her story and how Cumberland’s program was transformative for her and helped shaped her career as a successful trial attorney.
“Through its winning traditions and great coaching, Cumberland’s National Trial Team provided me with the skill set necessary to succeed as a practicing attorney.
“When I first arrived at Cumberland, I had no interest in entering a courtroom and planned to focus solely on transactional law. But, after being a member of the national trial team, I cannot imagine practicing law without litigating. Cumberland’s trial team enhanced my law school experience and gave me valuable tools to succeed in the future.”
