Anderson Jones, PLLC to sponsor competitive trial team

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard announced today that Anderson Jones, PLLC will financially support the law school’s advocacy program at the 2017 National Trial Competition. Campbell Law’s team is comprised of third-year students Dutch Entwistle, Jacob Morse, Casey Peaden, Gray Smith and Caroline Wahoff.

“We’re thankful for the support of Anderson Jones on behalf of our advocacy program,” said Leonard. “We know that our student advocates are among the best in the country, and we’re grateful for Anderson Jones making their participation in this national competition a reality.”

The NTC will begin with a regional competition, Feb. 9-12, in Athens, Ga., before the national finals, March 22-26, in Fort Worth, Texas.

The NTC was established in 1975 to encourage and strengthen student advocacy skills through quality competition and valuable interaction with members of the bench and bar. The trial program is designed to expose law students to the nature of trial practice and to serve as a supplement to their education. The Texas Young Lawyers Association, in partnership with the American College of Trial Lawyers, sponsors the competition in an effort to meaningfully contribute to the development of future trial lawyers. Each year the competition rotates between civil and criminal mock trials.

Anderson Jones, PLLC is a Raleigh based firm that focuses on a variety of practice areas, and each attorney possesses a wide range of experiences and backgrounds which are suited to accomplish the goals and needs of their clients. Founding partner Todd A. Jones is a 1998 Campbell Law graduate. He previously served as the founding chair of the Campbell Law Alumni Association and remains on the board of directors.

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 twice received the Gambrell Professionalism Award from the American Bar Association, honoring its First-Year Professionalism Development Series in 2003 and the Connections mentorship program in 2016. The school has also been recognized by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,900 alumni, including more than 3,000 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
