Perhaps you've never heard of the legendary trial advocacy success of the Cumberland School of Law. Read on.
Last week a Cumberland team won the National Trial Advocacy Competition hosted by the Michigan State University School of Law. There were 27 teams entered in the competition. The Cumberland team defeated teams from the University of Maryland in the quarter-finals, the University of Houston in the semi-finals and the University of Florida in the finals. The team members were Drew Haskins (Chattanooga, TN), Brittany Stancombe (Clarksville, TN), Sam Nicolle (Hazel Green, AL) and Patrick Hinchey (Savannah, GA). The team was coached by Sara Williams ('06) who was an award-winning national trial team member during her student days. She currently practices with the Carr Allison firm.
The world is better because of the competence of Cumberland students and graduates.
