Campbell Law School launches smart phone app

RALEIGH – Campbell Law School has released a new smart phone application, “CU LAW,” for Android and Apple products. The app is the third of its kind among all law schools in the United States, and the first among all law schools in North Carolina.

The free app was created in-house by Campbell Law Director of Information Technology Mark Gibbons and associates Chuck Toscano and Cole Dickens. “CU Law” allows for prospective students, current students, alumni, faculty and staff and community partners to stay in touch with Campbell Law regardless of time or location.

“Our smart phone application further solidifies our standing as a forward-thinking law school in terms of technology and access,” said Gibbons. “Our app allows all of our stakeholders to stay informed, in touch and connected with Campbell Law via one all-encompassing resource.”

The app boasts a wealth of information, including admissions, school history, news feed, event calendar, videos, faculty bios, location information and a photo gallery. Additionally, the app uses GPS technology to individually connect with, and send pertinent messages and event information, to users in specific geographic locations.

Gibbons devised the plan for the app after research indicated that college-aged students now spend more time browsing the internet on their smartphones than on actual computers.

“We are seeing a generational shift in the ways that students consume online information,” said Gibbons. “This app provides another platform to make sure that anyone who wants information on Campbell Law will have quick and easy access to it.”

The app is currently available in both the Android Marketplace and the iTunes store.
