Professor Currin reappointed to N.C. Rules Review Commission

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Professor Margaret Currin has been reappointed by the North Carolina Senate to a two-year term on the North Carolina Rules Review Commission (RRC). Currin initially joined the commission in June 2011, and has served as vice chair since August 2011.

The RRC, an executive agency created by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1986, is charged with reviewing and approving rules adopted by state agencies. The RRC consists of 10 commissioners appointed by the General Assembly, five on the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore, and five on the recommendation of the Speaker of the House.

“I am honored that the Senate has reappointed me to this commission, and I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of North Carolina to the best of my ability,” said Currin.

During her more than 25 years in legal education and law school administration, Currin has taught in the areas of government litigation, federal crimes, scientific evidence, election and lobby law, administrative law, and professional responsibility. She also directs the law school's externship program, working with students as they gain experience in public service, non-profit, corporate, and pro bono environments.

As a United States Attorney from 1988-93, Currin represented the interests of the country in all civil and criminal matters throughout the Eastern District of North Carolina. She also has served as president of the National Association of Former United States Attorneys. Active in a number of civic, professional, and public-service organizations, she has served on and chaired the Wake County Board of Elections, served as General Counsel for a state political party and other political committees, and served on the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) Committee with the North Carolina State Board of Elections. She has also represented political committees before the Federal Election Commission.

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
