"The redistricting hearing in Campbell Law School today in the North Carolina Business Court is an example of real-world learning opportunities for our students on important matters of public policy,” said Dean Melissa Essary.
Campbell Law is one of only a handful of law schools in the nation to house a working court.
The North Carolina Business Court at Campbell Law gives students the invaluable opportunity to utilize an on-site learning laboratory in which to observe a working North Carolina Superior Court and attorneys in action as they argue their cases. Students can learn about pre-trial and litigation concepts in the classroom and then walk down the hall to the court to observe expert litigators employ the same concepts in action.
