But mid-career West went back to school and got a Masters’ Degree in English Literature at the Sewanee School of Letters. She has since created a course on Shakespeare and Trial Advocacy that she teaches at Cumberland School of Law and now devotes much of her time to all things Shakespearean. West feels she is doing exactly what she was meant to do; it is just that she never could have predicted it when she was the age of those in the room. West’s undergraduate degree is from University of Alabama – Huntsville and her law degree is from the University of Alabama School of Law. The program was moderated by Susan Silvernail, a BBF Board member and attorney at the law firm Marsh, Rickard & Bryan.
