New Episodes Each Month

Hosted by Dean Blake Hudson, Cumberland Research Radio provides short but insightful glimpses into the exciting scholarly work of Cumberland School of Law faculty, alumni and friends.

The Cumberland School of Law community possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience and have a passion for sharing it. Did you know that a person can be legally dead in one state, transported across state lines, and legally resurrected in another state—with important implications for trusts and estates law? Did you know that Mark Twain may have run afoul of common law copyright when he wrote a short story based upon an oral slave narrative? These are just a few of the many interesting topics our faculty are exploring.

But our program expands beyond the Cumberland School of Law faculty and alumni to discuss important and interesting research topics with academic faculty and practitioners around the nation and the world.

New episodes are available on the first day of every month and can be found on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
