Shipman & Wright, LLP to sponsor Campbell Law advocacy team

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard announced today that Shipman & Wright, LLP has agreed to supply financial assistance in support of a Campbell Law advocacy team. The firm’s gift will assist a group of Campbell Law students participating at the Show Me Challenge Voir Dire Competition, April 2-6, in Kansas City, Mo.

As the only voir dire competition in the country, the Show Me Challenge seeks to promote jury selection as a critical element to lawyer success in the courtroom.

“Thanks to the support of Shipman & Wright our students have been placed in a position to succeed and excel while in Kansas City,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “We are thankful for their generous support of our advocacy program.”
