RALEIGH — The newest Wallace Fellows have been tapped to work alongside Campbell Law School’s faculty and staff during the 2022-2023 academic year, Dean J. Rich Leonard has announced.
Jamie Herman Bellomy and Maeve Healy — both 2022 Campbell Law graduates — were selected by an internal panel of law school faculty and staff. Both Wallace Fellows began working at the law school in November.
Bellomy serves as the Wallace Leadership Fellow. In her role, she will assist the Dean and the law school’s senior staff with development initiatives, alumni relations, communications and career services. Bellomy successfully completed a legal internship at Wake County Public Defender’s Office and she worked as a legal assistant at Bellomy, Turner & Bartram LLC in Huntington, West Virginia. Bellomy is a licensed attorney and focuses on restorative practices, where she is skilled in juvenile delinquency and as a child advocate. Bellomy earned her bachelor’s degree from Marshall University in 2018.
Healy serves as the Wallace Advocacy Fellow. In her role, she will assist the director of the law school’s Competitive Advocacy Program, which sends dozens of teams to competitions throughout the school year. Since graduation, Healy has been working as a law clerk and for UniCourt as a legal news analyst. While in law school, she was a member of the Willem Vis Moot Court team and served as a research assistant and N.C. Certified Legal Intern for the Blanchard Community Law Clinic. Healy is a 2019 graduate of Roanoke College where she earned her bachelor of science in Sport Management.
“I am delighted that two of our recent distinguished graduates will join our ranks this year as Wallace Fellows,” Leonard explained. “The Wallace Fellows have become an indispensable part of our law school, allowing us to stretch our resources in creative ways.”
The Jerry M. Wallace Law Fellowship Program consists of two full-time employment opportunities for recent graduates — the Wallace Leadership Fellow and the Wallace Advocacy Fellow. The program is named in honor of Campbell University Chancellor Dr. Jerry Wallace, who served 12 years as university president before stepping down in June 2015. He remains an integral part of the selection process and is engaged with each fellow.
