Victoria Ebrahimi Charles has been appointed Assistant Dean for the Birmingham School of Law. Mrs. Charles is of counsel for Shunnarah Trial Lawyers and an Adjunct Professor for Birmingham School of Law since 2018, teaching Domestic Relations and Legal Methods.
Mrs. Charles graduated from Cumberland School of Law, where she received the Dean’s scholarship and remained on the Dean’s List throughout law school. Active in law school, she was an executive member of the Trial Advocacy Board, president of the Women in Law chapter and won third place, along with her partner, in the ABA National Client Counseling Competition. Throughout her career, Mrs. Charles practiced civil litigation and family law. She was honored as a Super Lawyer Mid-South Rising Star in 2019 and 2020 as well as Top 100 by the National Trial Lawyers in the same two years.

“I am excited for my new role at Birmingham School of Law and furthering its mission. I want to help prepare students for the bar exam and to be there for them as they progress through their studies,” Victoria Charles says. “Many of our students work hard to earn a living and raise families in addition to law school. As we prepare to be back on campus, I am looking forward to working with our assiduous students to acclimate back to in-person education. I strive to assist our students, and faculty, in any way I can.”
Scott Garrett, Dean of Birmingham School of Law, says Mrs. Charles is a great addition to the staff. “Victoria is passionate about the mission of Birmingham School of Law. She is a fantastic fit for the role of Assistant Dean, and the administrative staff, the Board of Directors, and I are very excited to have her on board,” Dean Garrett says. “We have made it through the worst of the pandemic, and we plan to have 100 percent in-person classes for the fall term. We are looking forward to a great school year.”
