The Birmingham Pledge Foundation presented the Distinguished Service Award to Cumberland School of Law during their annual Lifetime Achievement Awards Ceremony held Monday, September 13, 2010 at Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Dean Carroll was present to accept the award on behalf of the law school.  Judge Houston L. Brown '73, a member of the Foundation's Board of Directors, presented the award.

Every year, as part of Cumberland's first-year orientation, students are provided an opportunity to sign the Birmingham Pledge.  The Pledge stresses a personal, daily commitment to remove prejudice and treat all people with respect.  The largest group of signatures the Foundation receives each year is that of the law students at Cumberland.

"I am extremely pleased that we offer our students the opportunity to sign the Birmingham Pledge, and extremely proud of them for the leadership they show in signing the pledge in such significant numbers," said Dean Carroll.
