From Judge John Carroll, Dean of our Cumberland School of Law:

 “At the Celebration of Excellence of the American Inns of Court held at the Supreme Court a few days ago, Judge Joel Dubina, a Cumberland graduate of the Class of 1973, was awarded the Lewis F. Powell Award for Professionalism and Ethics which is given each year to recognize a person who has rendered exemplary service to the legal profession in the areas of professionalism, civility and ethics. Previous recipients of this award include Justice William Brennan and Justice Anthony Kennedy.”

The world is better because the Samford community values integrity, honesty, and justice.
