Professor Tilly to teach at St. Andrews, Scotland in inaugural study abroad program

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Director of Advocacy & Assistant Professor of Law Dan Tilly will serve as a faculty member for a study abroad program in St. Andrews, Scotland, July 28 to Aug. 11. The program, the Baylor Academy of the Advocate at St. Andrews, is a partnership between Baylor University’s law school and the University of St. Andrews.

The two-week program provides participating students with intense and practical training in trial and appellate advocacy from highly-regarded lawyers, judges, and trial advocacy professors from both the United States and United Kingdom. Organized into two schools, the School of the Trial and the School of the Appeal, enrolled students will choose a school and complete the course of study throughout the two-week session. Tilly will serve as a faculty member in the School of the Trial.

“The Academy of the Advocate promises to be a unique, intense program for young lawyers seeking to become the recognized trial and appellate lawyers of the future,” said Tilly. “I’m looking forward to teaching students from around the country about courtroom advocacy and to expose them to what has been part of our Campbell Law advocacy program for many years.”

Tilly teaches courses in trial advocacy and evidence, focusing on courtroom lawyering and modern advocacy, at Campbell Law. In the spring of 2013 he was named Campbell Law Professor of the Year following a vote of the third-year class. Three Campbell Law advocacy program teams competed for national championships under his leadership during the 2013 spring semester.

Prior to Campbell Law, Tilly litigated claims in civil trial courts involving a range of legal issues including real estate disputes, construction defects, personal injury claims and medical malpractice torts in Texas. He also worked as an adjunct professor at Baylor School of Law, and was instrumental in developing and implementing its second-year trial advocacy program.

Tilly earned his degree in political science from the University of Texas and thereafter worked as senior staff in state government, including the Texas Supreme Court and Texas House of Representatives. He attended Baylor School of Law, graduating with honors. As a student Tilly served as a senior executive editor of the law review, competed as a national mock trial advocate, and published an article concerning the rights of adopted children.

Since its founding in 1976, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. The school has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) as having the nation’s top Professionalism Program and by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,500 alumni, including more than 2,400 who reside and work in North Carolina. For 26 years, Campbell Law’s overall record of success on the North Carolina Bar Exam has been unsurpassed by any other North Carolina law school. In September 2009, Campbell Law relocated to a state-of-the-art building in downtown Raleigh. For more information, visit
