From Maverick to Mainstream : Cumberland School of Law, 1847-1997, Hardback Book

From Maverick to Mainstream : Cumberland School of Law, 1847-1997 Hardback

Part of the Studies in the Legal History of the South series

Hardback

Description

Founded in 1847 in Lebanon, Tennessee, the Cumberland School of Law holds a unique place in the history of American legal education.

As the premier law school in the South in the nineteenth century, Cumberland trained two United States Supreme Court justices, nine senators, a secretary of state, and scores of other federal and state judges, representatives, and governors. Cumberland is among the oldest law schools in the southeast and is the first law school to have been sold outright from one university to another, passing from Cumberland University to Birmingham, Alabama's Howard College (now Samford University) in 1961.

This book is a comprehensive narrative analysis of the school's pedagogical and social history in the context of legal education throughout the South and the nation.
