"Campbell Law School's commitment to its students and their future clients continues to produce results," said Dean Melissa Essary. "We have high expectations of our students and through our rigorous academic program, they respond. From the first day that students report to Campbell Law until the day they graduate, they are taught to think critically, problem-solve and carry themselves in a highly professional manner. We believe our approach prepares Campbell Law graduates for outstanding legal careers and service in their communities."
Dr. Jerry Wallace, President of Campbell University, added, "The dedication of our Law School faculty and the hard work of our students are reflected year after year at Campbell. I am proud of the individual efforts of our students, but equally proud of the team effort it takes to produce such consistently strong results."
