Campbell Law Students Find Success at ABA Regional Client Counseling Competition

RALEIGH, N.C. – Two teams of students from Campbell Law School offered strong showings last weekend at the ABA Regional Client Counseling Competition for the Southeast Region at Washington & Lee Law School in Lexington, Va. The four competing second-year students were coached by Campbell Law Professor of Law Jean Cary.

This year’s competition focused on the area of employment law.

Wes Saunders and Jessica Yount finished both the preliminary and semifinal rounds in first place, ultimately taking third overall. Andrew Evans and Molly Hilburn-Holte also performed admirably, missing the semifinal cut by just one point and placing seventh overall.

“Both teams demonstrated great counseling skills, delivering thoughtful and ethical analytical arguments,” said Cary. “They served as great ambassadors for Campbell Law.”


Since its founding in 1976, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. The school has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) as having the nation’s top Professionalism Program and by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,400 alumni, including more than 2,400 who reside and work in North Carolina. For 26 years, Campbell Law’s overall record of success on the North Carolina Bar Exam has been unsurpassed by any other North Carolina law school.
