For the 2013–14 academic year, third-year law students William "Carter" Montgomery of Hartselle, Ala., left, and Joseph Echols of Augusta, Ga, right, are the recipients of the Rodney Max Fellowship.

Cumberland School of Law’s Rodney Max Mediation Fellowship was established by Rodney A. Max, center, a nationally renowned mediator and a 1975 graduate of Cumberland School of Law. In spring 2013, Max was selected as the law school’s Distinguished Alumnus of the Year. 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 to manage the Samford Residence Life Mediation Program, comediate disputes as assigned by the director of the CCMC, and research and write projects as assigned.
