RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard announced today that Ogletree Deakins has agreed to financially sponsor a competitive moot court team. The firm’s support will provide assistance for the team’s travel, lodging and preparation for the National Appellate Advocacy Competition, March 6-8, in Boston, Mass.
“We appreciate this generous gift from Ogletree Deakins,” said Leonard. “Campbell Law’s competitive advocacy reputation is well known, and this gift will ensure that our students have opportunities to continue learning and refining their skills outside of the classroom.”
