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

The best thing about Cumberland is the community that is fostered here. Cumberland values deep connections inside and outside of the classroom. These connections, in turn, develop now and will last long into my legal career.

Why did you choose Cumberland School of Law?

I chose Cumberland because it was similar to the environment I experienced at my undergrad institution. As I was taking this next step in my education, I chose a school that would deeply enrich me academically while also prioritizing community and collaborative learning. Cumberland’s community is why I ultimately decided to attend law school here.

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

Birmingham has a rich legal community, and Cumberland is well connected in the area. There are a lot of alumni in the city, and the school tries to help facilitate connections between the students and the alumni. Additionally, Birmingham feels like a small town in a big city. There are so many restaurants, workout studios, parks, and things to do on the weekends. Birmingham offers many things that are not law school related when you want to disconnect for a bit.

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities

National Trial Team, Admission Ambassador, Christian Legal Society

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

The process seems daunting, but it will work itself out. Trust that you have done your best and be confident in your ability to take this next step of investing in your own future.

What do you plan to do after graduation?

I plan to move back home to Georgia and work in a civil litigation firm somewhere in the Atlanta area.
