Ramona Albin, Assistant Professor of Law and Director of Advocacy, wrote to me last week to say that—in one weekend—our National Trial Team won two national tournaments (California and Michigan) and received individual honors in another (Texas). As she said in her message to me, our students “not only excelled, but did so with grace, dignity and professionalism.” To read the details of the story, go to https://www.samford.edu/news/2017/10/Cumberland-Law-National-Mock-Trial-Team-Wins-Two-National-Tournaments. Congratulations to the law students and their coaches.
The world is better because of the academic, career and ethical competency of our students in the Cumberland School of Law.
