RALEIGH — Campbell Law School Dean J. Rich Leonard has announced the three new Wallace Fellows tapped to work alongside the institution’s faculty and staff during the 2020-2021 academic year. Reagan Warren, Callie Davis and Kristen Longmire — all 2020 Campbell Law graduates — were selected by an internal panel of law school faculty and staff to begin working by Oct. 1.
“These are three of my outstanding 2020 graduates who just passed the bar and are eager to jump in and move the law school forward,” Dean Leonard said.
The Jerry M. Wallace Law Fellowship Program consists of three full-time employment opportunities for recent graduates — the Wallace Leadership Fellow, the Wallace Advocacy Fellow and the Wallace Public Service 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.
A native of Raleigh, Warren will serve as the Wallace Leadership Fellow. In her role, she will assist Dean Leonard and the law school’s senior staff with development initiatives, alumni relations and career services. As a student at Campbell Law, Warren worked as a library assistant and was a quarter-finalist in the Old Kivett Moot Court Competition. She also served as a Law Clerk for Hutchens Law Firm prior to graduation. Warren earned her undergraduate degree from East Carolina University.
Davis, who hails from Lumberton, will serve as the Wallace Advocacy Fellow. In her role she will work with the advocacy faculty in the required trial practice curriculum, assist with inter school competitions and help administer the Boyce Center of Advocacy. As a student at Campbell Law, Davis was the 2020 recipient of the Pro Bono Publico Award and served as president of the Health Law Association, Pro Bono Council Co-Coordinator for the Wills and Advanced Directives Project and Peer Mentor Group Leader. She also served as an N.C. Legal Intern with the North Carolina State Health Plan prior to graduation. Davis earned her undergraduate degree from Meredith College.
Longmire is a native of Knightdale, a suburb of Raleigh. As the Wallace Public Service Fellow she will assist in the management of Campbell Law’s pro bono programs, and work to conceptualize and seek resources to further pro bono and clinical development. During her time at Campbell Law, Longmire served as the assistant team leader of the Student Ambassadors, was a semifinalist in the Old Kivett Moot Court Competition and received the Pro Bono Work Award for completing more than 50 hours of service. She most recently worked as an intern at Marshall & Taylor, PLLC prior to graduation. Longmire earned her undergraduate degree from East Carolina University.
