Montgomery named head of state criminal division

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law adjunct professor Robert Montgomery has been appointed Senior Deputy Attorney General for the Criminal Division of the North Carolina Department of Justice. The appointment was recently announced by North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper.

Montgomery has taught first-year students in Campbell Law’s Legal Writing & Research Program in both fall and spring semesters since 2010.

“Professor Montgomery is a fantastic teacher, and he generously shares his expertise in written and oral advocacy with Campbell Law first-year students,” said Campbell Law Assistant Professor of Law and Legal Research & Writing Program Directory Amy Flanary-Smith. “We are fortunate to have such an exceptional appellate advocate inspiring and instructing our students.”

Montgomery assumed his new post on Monday, March 3. He oversees the division of the Attorney General’s Office charged with handling all criminal appeals in state and federal courts, provides legal advice and representation to state law enforcement agencies and state prisons, and prosecutes criminal cases upon the request of local district attorneys.

Montgomery joined the Attorney General’s Office in 1999, and has headed the Criminal Appellate section since 2005.
