Samford University 🤝 Dogs: Rascal Day 2022

If dogs could talk, what would they say? 🤔 We think we know. 😉 Today we celebrated Rascal Day, a tradition of Cumberland School of Law .

This festive event during the annual Law Week remembers a mongrel pup named Rascal who faithfully attended classes at the law school’s original campus beginning in 1933. In 1937, he was awarded the rare degree of doctor of canine jurisprudence, awarded in honor of the hundreds of classes and mock trials at which Rascal’s attendance had been difficult to ignore.

Rascal Day, complete with a doggie parade across campus, brings together the law school’s community. It’s a day of fun festivities that captures the Cumberland experience and its ability to develop well-rounded lawyers.

Drop a ❤️ if you love dogs as much as we do!
