Campbell Law School Lauded in Princeton Review

Campbell University’s Norman A. Wiggins School of Law was featured in the Princeton Review’s 2007 edition of the “Best 170 Law Schools” publication.The Princeton Review compiled the ranking lists based on statistics provided by school administrators and surveys of 17,000 students over the past three academic years. Students were asked 80 questions about themselves, their career plans, their school’s academics, student body and campus life.”Campbell is not for the weak hearted,” one Campbell student commented about the rigorous demands of the first year. “You must want to be a lawyer and be determined to persevere.” The publication noted that Campbell’s dedicated and experienced faculty members are also determined to ensure students get the most from their legal education.Students noted that “while professors are demanding of students in the classroom and rigorous in their implementation of the Socratic method, outside of class they are approachable and eager to assist and love to engage students in dialogue.”The Campbell faculty’s commitment to excellence has earned the school a remarkable notoriety with local firms.”Campbell is a small private law school with a big reputation within North Carolina,” said one student. “After graduation, prepare to live up to the high standards that graduates before you have set for Campbell Law attorneys.”Another student noted, “Campbell not only provides a great legal education, but also something that is less and less valued in the legal world today: a solid grounding in ethics and Christian principles.”Law Dean Melissa Essary said, “It’s affirming to hear how much our own students value their legal education at Campbell Law School. They know their hard work will pay off in the real world, as it has for a generation of Campbell Law graduates.”Campbell’s Class of 2006 scored a 97% passage rate on July’s North Carolina Bar Exam, topping all other law schools in the state by a wide margin.Campbell University School of Law is a highly demanding, purposely small, intensely personal community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion, and professional competence and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and to create a more just society.
