MEMORIAL HALL i I s ! i n IF HE nun u u i The School of Law was authorized by the trustees as a department of Cumberland University on February 22, I 847. At various subsequent sittings of the board the plan of organization was perfected, and in the month of October, I 847, the first term opened, with one professor and seven students present. Judge Abram Caruthers was the professor. fHe was called from the bench of the Circuit Court to this new work by the Board of Trustees. Robert L. Caruthers, who for many years was President of the Board, provided the first classroom in his own office. The school was at once a success. Judge Nathan Green, Sr., then one of the Supreme Judges of the State, was called to assist Judge Caruthers in the conduct of the school in I 848. He did not resign as a member of the Supreme Court until 1852. Judge Bromfleld L. Ridley became a Professor of Law in 1848, and served until 1852. In 1856, Nathan Green, Jr., was elected a professor, the prosperity of the school requiring the services of three instructors. These three men con- tinued as the faculty until the beginning of the Civil War in 1861. At that time there were one hundred and eighty law students in attendance. Judge Abram Caruthers died during the war. Judge Nathan Green, Sr., survived the war and assisted his son, Nathan Green, Jr., in the revival of the school, but died in 1866. hHe was succeeded that year by the hlon. hienry Cooper, and two years thereafter. Judge Cooper having resigned. Judge Robert L. Caruthers, who was for many years on the Supreme Bench of the State, was elected to fill the vacancy. hHe resigned in 1881 because of advancing years and feeble health, and Dr. Andrew B. Martin succeeded him, serving until his death. May 19, 1920. Judge Nathan Green, Jr., having taught as a Professor in the School of Law for more than sixty-three years, died on February 17, I 9 I 9. He was suc- ceeded by Judge Edward E. Beard, who served until his death, June I 8, I 924. In July, 1920, W. k. Chambers was elected as the successor of Dr. Martin, and in October, 1923, Judge Albert Williams was selected as a Professor of Law. Judge A. B. Neil was elected Professor of Law in September, 1930, and was made Dean in January, I 935. Judge Neil was graduated from the School of Law of Cumberland University in September, 1896. He served for many years as a Criminal Judge and later as Circuit Judge and as a member of the State Supreme Court. He is now Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Tennessee. Judge Frank T. Fancher was a member of the law faculty from September, 1935, to June, 1937; re-elected, September, I 939. In September, 1941 Judge Fancher became Dean. He graduated from this law school under the teach- ing of Judge Green and Dr. Martin and had much experience in the practice of law in Tennessee and Florida. In 19 I 5-1 9 I 6, again in 1937 and in 1940-41 he served by appointment of three different governors as a Special Judge on the Supreme Bench of Tennessee. For over twelve years he was a member of the Board of Law Examiners of Tennessee. In June 1932, Judge Sam B. Gilreath, a 1925 graduate of the School of Law, became a Professor of Law and has served continuously since. He was named later as Dean of the school. He Is the author of the latest revision of Caruthers History of a Law Suit, a widely used work on Civil Practice. Following the second World War, Judge Gilreath and Allison B. Hum- phreys, Jr., served as professors in the School of Law. Professor Humphreys resigned in June, I 946, to take over responsibilities in the Attorney General ' s Office of the State of Tennessee. Thus far In the history of the School of Law the plan of instruction has been at first one year of legal education, and then, as this plan progressed, there came a time when this emphasis on textbook instruction for the one year was supplemented by an emphasis on casebook study for a second year, and this became a requirement of the University. When the reorganization of the University in 1946 was effected, this two-year plan of law study was replaced by a three-year plan of study and the requirement of two years of pre-legal work as a basis of entrance into the School of Law. Those who were engaged in the two-year plan on July 10, 1946, were carried through to the completion of their work. All who entered thereafter entered under the new regulations set up at that time. The School of Law, as It Is now constituted, requires three years as a mini- CARUTHERS HALL mum of pre-legal study and three years of study in the School of Law as a re- quirement for the degree of Bachelor of Laws. Every phase of the work in the School of law has been set up on a standard basis. In September, 1947, Arthur A. Weeks joined the faculty as Professor of Law and was made Dean in September, 1948. Bernard B, Bailey joined the faculty as a Professor of Law in August, 1948, and was made Acting Dean of the Law School in September, 1954, upon the resignation of Dean Weeks, who returned to the practice of law. William H. Stanford, Jr., became a member of the faculty as Associate Professor of Law in September, I 949, and returned to private practice in 1952, at which time Mr. Otis J. Bouwsma joined the faculty as Associate Professor of Law. In September, 1953, Mr. REAR VIEW MEMORIAL HALL .r ii. ' . ■ P r i! Ill ' ' S M DORMITORY Grissim H. Walker became a member of the faculty as Associate Professor of Law, and in September, I 954, Chancellor W. W, hHerron joined the faculty as Professor of Law. In February, 1949, the School of Law of Cumberland University was ap- proved by the American Bar Association, provisional approval having been granted at that time. Full approval was granted by the American Bar Asso- ciation in September of 1952. In November of 1952 the School was regis- tered by the Board of Regents of the State of New York. In December of I 952 the school was granted membership in the Association of American Law Schools. This gained for the school every recognition possible for an Ameri- can law school.

One of fhe most rewarding experiences I have enjoyed in my lifetime has been my association with Cumberland University, an institution which has produced some of t he outstanding leaders of our nation. I am no educator, and I accepted this respon- sibility with reluctance as I felt that there are oth- ers more deserving and better equipped to fill a THE CHAIRMAN SPEAKS place on this board. As a business man, however, I know the value to my field of endeavor of well- trained minds and the development of character. I came in as a pinch-hitter because Cumberland University has hung on tenaciously to the educa- tional creed which has fostered the spirit of free enterprize. It has a character in itself well worth preserving. It follows that good schools produce people equipped with a good supply of factual informa- tion, ability to live and work with people of all types, potential capacity to apply these two fac- tors, sound reasoning ability, and a solid sense of values. All of these prerequisites Cumberland ful- fills, plus training in character building. It instills into the minds of its students an appreciation for the requirement of moral law as well as for statute laws, and implants in them the fact that one goes to school for the purpose of fitting himself for liv- ing up to the responsibilities of life. Cumberland University has been time-tried and tested, and can be judged by the products it has turned out. Cumberland alumni may well be proud of their Alma Mater, and the entire community should give this great institution its staunch sup- port. EDWARD POTTER, JR. I i E n n 1 W. J.

We wish to thank you for your confidence in entrusting to us the responsibility for editing the 1955 PHOENIX. Though this has been a diffi- cult task, it has nevertheless been a pleasure. The cooperation of the faculty and of the stu- dent body has contributed immeasurably to the successful publication of this book. It is our fondest hope that you will be pleased with this book and that as you peruse it again and again through the years, it will call to mem- ory the pleasures and activities of this year at Cumberland University. CUMBERLAND UNIVERSITY 38 II i (1 I In Moot Court the student has an op- portunity to bring a legal action into court and try it before a judge and jury prior to his entering into actual practice. It is during these moot court sessions that the senior law students learn procedure and gain experience in preparing and try- i II ! ing cases. The cases are conducted ac- cording to actual court room practice and procedure, and afford invaluable experi- ence in trial work. Freshmen and sopho- more law students participate in trials as jurors.
