Campbell Law School

Lauren Raynor, Class of 2012

When I think about why I love Campbell Law School three things come to mind—my friends, the faculty, and the administration. I would never have been able to survive my first year at Campbell without my friends. Sometimes when exhaustion and frustration take over, someone  utters the words, “I can’t do it. I’m going to fail.” The response is always the same, “No, you’re not. We won’t let you fail. What don’t you understand?” We teach each other, we support each other, and we love each other. It’s a comforting feeling to know that you are never in it alone.

The faculty is deeply invested in our success.  Professors challenge us and set the highest of expectations for us, but they don’t forget about us. At Campbell, the students are the faculty’s priority. They want to help you, challenge you, and get to know you. They want you to come to their offices and ask questions about the material covered in class. They want to shape us into lawyers who will be brilliant, ethical, and confident representatives of Campbell Law School, the legal profession, and most importantly our future clients.

People ask me, “Do you actually know the Dean? Is she ever around?” I always tell them that yes, I know her, and she knows me. She is friendly and inviting and puts forth great effort to actually get to know the students. Our Assistant and Associate Deans are busy managing the law school, yet they are never too busy to get to know you. Not only do they welcome suggestions, but they take them seriously, constantly striving to make Campbell the best possible environment for the students.
