SENATOR DOUG JONES HEADLINES CUMBERLAND EVENT


ADVOCACY…IT’S A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE
AT CUMBERLAND…SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING…AND THE FUTURE…IT’S EVEN BRIGHTER WITH SUPPORT
FROM EVENTS LIKE THIS…AND SUPPORT FROM GRADUATES LIKE ALABAMA SENATOR DOUG JONES. [SENATOR DOUG JONES] “it’s just been an incredible journey
to watch and see how those programs have grown and expanded and the lawyers that they’ve
produced. I still fall back on things I learned, not
only at the law school, but in those trial ad programs, it was just a phenomenal platform
from which a lawyer to build, a public servant to build.” CUMBERLAND’S ADVOCACY PROGRAM TRADITIONALLY
RANKS AS ONE OF THE TOP PROGRAMS IN THE COUNTRY—IT PREPARES TRIAL READY LAWYERS. [DEAN CORKY STRICKLAND] “The trial team members that graduate, graduate
with more trial experience than most litigators have in a good third or fourth of their career. So, they’re perfectly comfortable day one
and going in and trying their cases.” [RAMONA ALBIN] “we expect excellence from our advocates,
we expect our advocates to be professional, and we have a commitment to help our advocates
grow as people and as lawyers. So, that foundation really provides that kind
of excellence in our program.” “We want to be the leader in advocacy education
in the 21st century, and so this program this evening is kind of the beginning of that effort,
of moving the program forward and building on our great foundation.” IT’S A FOUNDATION THAT PRODUCES—A CUMBERLAND
LAWYER. “Cumberland has always had a great reputation,
but for those of us that like trial work, for those of us that like advocacy work, to
see those teams year in and year out perform and excel the way they do, is a true source
of pride, and it’s something that not only the law school can be proud of, the state
of Alabama can be proud of what those trophies those kids bring home its just phenomenal.
