“We are excited to host this amazing community service project for our first-year students,” said Essary. “Campbell Law Cares is an important way for students entering law school to give back to their community, and it serves as a valuable reminder of our vision of creating law professionals who possess moral conviction and social compassion, and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and to create a more just society.”
