A Word from

the Dean

This has been an interesting year, no

doubt about that. When the downturn in the

economy affected Samford University, Cumberland

experienced a budget cut along with the rest of

the University. We all have tightened our belts

and reviewed our budget items, and thanks to the

help of donors like you, we have not had to cut

scholarship awards or student related programs.

This Report is an accumulated account of all the

gifts that have been received during the 2008-2009

fiscal year (July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009).

Gifts received since July 1, 2009 will be reported

next fall. During this year we have created three

new funds. The Russell Q. and Lindsey J. Allison

Scholarship was created by the law firm of Carr

Allison in recognition of the twenty fifth anniversary

of their graduation from Cumberland. I announced

the establishment of the fund at the Class of 1984

Reunion Party in March. The Montgomery firm of

Beasley, Allen, Methvin, Portis & Miles established

the Beasley Allen Public Interest Fellows

Fund to assist students involved in the Summer

Public Interest Stipend Program sponsored by

Cumberland. Al Shumaker ’65 created a charitable

remainder trust which, at maturity, will fund the

Albert and Miriam Shumaker Scholarship.

We are extremely grateful for all the generous

gifts that have allowed us to thus weather this

economic storm. As our fine faculty work to mold

the lawyers of tomorrow, we cannot afford to make

any concessions in the quality of the educational

experience we provide our students. We have all

been blessed by the education we received at

Cumberland, and it is our responsibility to give

back. I ask for your continued support in the years

to come.

The faculty members of Cumberland School of Law

are rare gems, caring deeply about the students

and providing a first class education. They bring

national recognition to the law school through

their talent in the classroom, and international

recognition thanks to their scholarly contributions

to the academic arena. This past year alone, our

faculty spoke and led conferences in Brazil, Canada

and India in addition to a number of engagements

throughout the states. Many of their articles were

published and presented in forums across the

country, and three books authored by Cumberland

faculty members were published. The Harwell G.

Davis Chair of Constitutional Law was created

as the result of a gift from the estate of alumna

Elizabeth (Betty) Davis Eshelman ’64. In September,

David Smolin was invested as the Davis Professor

of Constitutional Law. Smolin has been a professor

of law at Cumberland since 1987.

In August we were all saddened by the death of

former dean Arthur A. Weeks. He was a legend

among the Cumberland family whose contributions

to this institution will be forever appreciated and

recognized. Please take time to read more about

his life and work with Cumberland highlighted on

page 6.

Many Cumberland students realize that practical

legal experience gained during law school will be

beneficial to their future job prospects. As a result,

Cumberland experienced a record number of


applicants for the summer Public Interest Stipend

Program, a program made possible through a grant

from the Henry G. and Henry U. Sims Foundation,

the support of Beasley, Allen, Methvin, Portis

and Miles for the Beasley Allen Public Interest

Fellowships and the generosity of alumni including

Miles A. McGrane III, ’75 who has established the

McGrane Fellows Program to support pro bono

work by students. Fifty-seven students were

accepted into the program, and gained a wealth of

experience from their placements which ranged

from the Birmingham Legal Aid, to the governor’s

legal office, to the Georgia Innocence Project and

the International Criminal Tribunal, The Hague

in the Netherlands. Daniel Milton ’10 found the

experience changed the way he looks at potential

employers. “Now when I look at a firm, I look to

see if they offer any pro bono opportunities for

their lawyers…it is really telling about the firm’s

character,” he said.

Participation on Cumberland advocacy teams

also wields great experience, and this year’s

teams have built on the success of last year.

They placed second in the American Association

for Justice 2009 National Student Trial Advocacy

competition and advanced to the semifinals in the

National Trial Competition in February. This year

our trial team has been invited to participate in

the Tournament of Champions which is an elite

tournament involving the 16 best trial advocacy

programs in the country. Cumberland’s bankruptcy

moot court team advanced to the quarterfinals of

the Chief Judge Conrad B. Duberstein Bankruptcy

Moot Court Competition in New York, competing

against 48 teams from around the country. Finally,

the national appellate advocacy team advanced

We have all been

blessed by the education

we received at Cumberland, and it is

our responsibility to give back. I ask for your continued

support in the years to come.

to the quarterfinals of the ABA National Appellate

Advocacy Competition in Chicago. This marks the

second consecutive year that Cumberland has sent

a moot court team to nationals at this competition.

Our interactions with alumni have greatly increased

over the past year due to our attempts to grasp

the new waves of social media. The law school

has a presence on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter

where events and news updates are posted

weekly. We also have started the highly popular

Cumberland Connections monthly newsletter which

features alumni class news and upcoming events.

As always, you can subscribe to our detailed

weekly e-newsletter, follow my personal blog

on Cumberland’s website and read our biannual

publication of The Cumberland Lawyer magazine.

I am beginning my ninth year as Dean of

Cumberland School of Law, and it never

fails to amaze me how the quality of

a Cumberland education continues

to progress and how Cumberland

alumni continue to fervently

support their alma mater – even

in the toughest of times. Thank

you for your contributions

to the success of this

law school and I

look forward to

reporting many more

successes in the

upcoming year.

Remembering

“Mr. Cumberland

Advancing the practice of law was a way of life for

Arthur A. Weeks, whether serving at the helm of a

law school or spending time with students in the

classroom. He was a man who had

a passion for the law, and

a countless number

of lives have been

influenced by his

dedication.

Born in Hanceville, Ala., Weeks graduated from

Howard College in 1936. He received his law

degree from University of Alabama Law School

and earned his LL.M. (Master of Law degree) from

Duke University Law School. He spent his initial

postgraduate years practicing as a successful

private attorney before accepting the position of

Dean of Cumberland School of Law in 1948. Weeks

served as Dean of Cumberland School of Law for a

total of three terms, from 1948-1949, 1950-1954,

and 1961-1972.

During this time he saw that the school was

approved by the American Bar Association and

became an accredited law school. He was the first

Dean of Cumberland School of Law of Samford

University (formerly Howard College), and was

responsible for its move from Lebanon, Tenn. to

the Howard College campus in Birmingham. He

also oversaw the construction of Memory Leake

Robinson Hall, and under his leadership enrollment

in the school grew from 61 students to more than

600 students.

“Dean Weeks provided strong leadership through

some of the most turbulent times in Cumberland’s

long history. His superhuman efforts to succeed

in the face of significant adversity and to keep us

moving forward laid the foundation for the great law

school we are today,” said current dean John Carroll,

Arthur A. Weeks

December 2, 1914–August 22, 2009


‘74. “All of us who proudly bear the title ‘Cumberland

Lawyer’ owe him a huge debt of gratitude.”

Though his years in private practice provided

monetary means much greater than those in the

teaching profession, it became clear that money was

not the motivator behind this man. Weeks returned

to teaching full time in 1972 but took a leave of

absence in 1974 to help bring accreditation to

Delaware School of Law. He was appointed Dean and

Professor of Delaware School of Law (now Widener

Law) at Widener University, and was later awarded

an honorary LL.D degree (Doctorate of Laws, honoris

causa) from Delaware Law School.

In a 1974 issue of Pro Confesso, a former newspaper

produced by students of the Cumberland School of

Law, Weeks said that “No university or college can

afford to run a second-class law school because the

basis of our society as it now exists is built on the

law and when law is misinterpreted, misapplied, or

Under his leadership enrollment in the

school grew from 61 students to more

than 600 students.

misunderstood, it adversely affects the whole

fabric of society. We cannot have freedom and

liberty except as it exists under law,” continued

Weeks, “and we cannot have law when our

moral values disintegrate.”

It was this philosophy that aided Dean Weeks

in establishing a first class law school at

Samford University and Delaware Law School.

In an editorial of the 1974 Pro Confesso, and

anonymous contributor wrote “Dean Weeks

spent his life striving for excellence. We at

Cumberland are fortunate to have a man of his

talents and capacities associated with us.”

It takes many things to build two law schools,

but possibly no ingredient is as much needed

as the character of the individual leading

the cause. Dean Weeks is an example of

the profession of law that all Cumberland

constituents can be proud to call their own,

“Mr. Cumberland.”

In 1994, the Cumberland School of Law

Advisory Board, under the leadership of

members Tom Donahoo ’65, Newman Brock

’70 and Tom Woodruff ’69, created the Arthur

A. Weeks Scholarship in honor of Dean Weeks.

The endowed scholarship provides need-based

assistance for second and third year law students.

Among the memorials suggested by the family

is the Arthur A. Weeks Scholarship, Cumberland

School of Law, Samford University, 800

Lakeshore Dr., Birmingham, AL 35229.

Introducing the Gilreath

We often measure commitment

and loyalty by attendance at events or amounts

contributed to causes. These are important

measures and as in years past, we will honor

alumni who have made significant financial

contributions to the law school. In addition, this

year, we are acknowledging “consistent” giving

through the creation of The Gilreath Society. Named

for one of Cumberland’s longest serving faculty

members who bridged both campuses, eligibility

is reserved for alumni who have contributed to

the law school for at least fifteen or more years

since graduation. There are over 400 alumni who

are founding members. We knew our alumni were

wonderful supporters of the law school and its

students, but the size of this group of “consistent”

supporters was a very pleasant surprise.

6 yea

Consistent, faithful, determined and dependable are

words used to describe someone who is committed

to a person, project, program or mission. One

alumnus stands out as representative of these

and any other number of synonyms associated

with sustained giving. John Bennett ’69 of

Orlando, Florida holds the honor of having given to

Cumberland more years than any other alumnus/a.

John has contributed thirty-six of the forty years

since his graduation.

Vice Dean Jim Lewis notes, “In my twenty-two

years at Cumberland, I cannot remember a single

year when John and Ann (MS ’68) have not been

on our list of donors. For years we received a check

each month. Once I asked John what was the

secret to his consistent giving. I have remembered

his response over the years. He said ‘I think it is

important to support Cumberland, so when I started

out, every month, when I sat down to write my

mortgage check, I wrote a check to Cumberland. It

was an easy way to remember.’”

Every gift to Cumberland is an important indicator

of confidence in what we are doing at Cumberland.

The faculty and staff work hard to make each

educational experience better than those before.

Consistency of support from all of those on the

Gilreath Society list, and the hundreds of others

who have given faithfully over the years, assures

our students have what they need to become

exceptional lawyers. Thank you all.

Members

Each year the

University receives

estate gifts that we

did not know about

before the distribution, making it impossible to thank

the donor for their thoughtfulness. We are so grateful

that alumni and friends include provisions in their wills

and estate plans which benefit the law school and our

students. We would like to express our appreciation

to you in person and we invite you to let us know of

provisions you may have made which affect the law

school. All information is confidential and your name

will only be listed if you have given permission.

Following are the names of Heritage Society

members who have informed us that Cumberland is

part of their estate plan. If you would like information
