Posted by William Nunnelley on 2009-07-20

Alyson Hood, a second-year student at Samford University's Cumberland School of Law, received the Alabama State Bar Pro Bono Student Award for outstanding commitment to providing free legal services to the poor.

Hood, from Chattanooga, Tenn., was honored at the annual meeting of the Alabama State Bar Association July 15-18 at Point Clear, Ala.

Hood recruited 30 volunteers to assist lawyers in a clinic providing legal assistance to the homeless and helped coordinate their participation in legal research and other services. She also volunteered 150 hours at the clinic.

This is the third consecutive year that a Cumberland student has won the Alabama State Bar Pro Bono Student Award.
