Campbell Law welcomes 186 new students for 2014-15 academic year

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law ushered in 186 new students with the beginning of its first-year orientation activities on Wednesday, Aug. 13, marking the second-largest incoming class in the history of the law school. The students --- 167 traditional students and 19 studying as a part of the Campbell Flex program --- represent 73 different undergraduate institutions and 43 majors.

The number of incoming students is a sharp incline from last year, which saw 121 new students on the first day of orientation.


“We are excited to welcome this accomplished and promising class,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “These students are joining our law school family, and our entire faculty and staff are committed to doing everything we possibly can to ensure their success over the next three years and thereafter.”

Campbell Law’s new students began orientation by taking the Professionalism Oath. In addition to customary instructional meetings with faculty and staff, new students will participate in a six-site community service project, enjoy a social gathering at Dean Leonard’s home, and tour all of the local, state, and federal courts in downtown Raleigh throughout the remainder of orientation.

Since its founding in 1976, Campbell Law School 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 3,650 alumni, including more than 2,500 who reside and work in North Carolina. In September 2009, Campbell Law relocated to a state-of-the-art building in downtown Raleigh. For more information, visit
