Judge Rader receives Iredell Award from Phi Alpha Delta

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Honorable Robert B. Rader was presented with the James Iredell Award on Thursday, March 30 by Campbell Law School’s Phi Alpha Delta (PAD) law fraternity. Judge Rader, who serves as the Chief District Court Judge for the Tenth Judicial District, is a 1985 Campbell Law graduate.

Judge Rader was appointed to this post in November 2007 by former North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Sara Parker. Judge Rader has served as a District Court Judge for more than 22 years having originally been appointed by Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. in 1994. Judge Rader was re-elected in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Judge Rader received his undergraduate degree from NC State University prior to attending Campbell Law where he served as Chief Justice of the Honor Court.

Since 1980 the James Iredell Award has been presented each year by Campbell Law’s PAD chapter to an individual who has made significant contributions to the legal profession and to Campbell Law. The award, inspired by the life and writings of Justice James Iredell, the namesake of Campbell Law’s PAD chapter, honors the recipient’s accomplishments, tenacity and effort.

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
