Riddle & Brantley, LLP to sponsor moot court team

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard announced today that Riddle & Brantley, LLP will provide financial support for the law school’s advocacy program at the 2017 William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition. Campbell Law’s third-year students Casey Peaden and James Todd will represent the law school at the event.

“Campbell Law is very appreciative of Gene Riddle and his peers at Riddle & Brantley for their generous support of our advocacy program,” said Leonard. “Their support will provide Casey and James, both excellent student advocates, with an opportunity to compete and make our entire law school community proud.”

The William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition is a national interscholastic appellate moot court competition. Now in its 31st year, the goals of the completion are to promote interest in all areas of civil rights law and to help interested students develop the oral advocacy and writing skills essential to be successful appellate practitioners. The competition, which is limited to 32 teams, will take place Feb. 18-20 at Minneapolis, Minn.

Campbell Law previously won this competition in 2007.
