Rodney Max Mediation Fellowship
Cumberland School of Law's Rodney Max Mediation Fellowship was established by Rodney A. Max, a nationally renowned mediator and a 1975 graduate of Cumberland School of Law. The fellowship recognizes the interest, achievements and scholarship of Cumberland School of Law students in the area of mediation.
The Rodney Max Fellow receives a fellowship award for the academic year. The Fellow works for the director of the Cumberland Community Mediation Center [CCMC], with primary responsibilities being to manage the Samford Residence Life Mediation Program, co-mediate disputes as assigned by the director of the CCMC, and research and write projects as assigned.
Nancy Yarbrough (pictured above with Mr. Max and Ms. Adams), as third-year law student, was selected the 2012–13 Rodney Max Mediation Fellow. Ms. Yarbrough has clerked for the United States Attorney’s Office; White, Arnold & Dowd; Nationwide’s Trial Division; and for the Honorable Judge Houston Brown. During her third year of law school she clerked at Simpson, McMahon, Glick & Burford, and at the family law firm of Shaw, Anderson & Peeples. Prior to attending law school, Ms. Yarbrough had a successful career.
