RALEIGH — Campbell Law School students launched the inaugural Campbell Law Reporter (CLR) Podcast on Oct. 16.

CLR is a legal podcast that strives to expand the university’s mission to lead with purpose by reporting with purpose. 

“We hope to breathe new life into the dusty reporters on the shelves by reporting the content through captivating discussion,” says Hunter Koehl ‘20, editor-in-chief of the podcast.

Campbell Law Reporter’s first episode, entitled “The Genesis Episode,” introduces the hosts, explains the mission and previews what listeners can expect to hear throughout the inaugural season. Episodes will be released every other Wednesday throughout the semester. The sneak peek includes snippets of interviews with N.C. Court of Appeals Judge Allegra Collins ‘07, Professor Zac Bolitho, Admissions Director Morgan Cutright, Professor Elizabeth Berenguer and Professor Robert Montgomery.

In addition to Koehl, CLR hosts are Shannon Lackey and Tanya Becena. Bryant Pernell is the Associate Editor. Bailey Kirby is the Managing Editor. Professor Bobbi Jo Boyd and Communications and Marketing Director Lisa Snedeker serve as advisers to the podcast staff.

Dean J. Rich Leonard said, “Hunter and the other CLR staff members have done an impressive job of creating this podcast. I never cease to be amazed by the creativity and drive of Campbell Law students.”

The podcast is available on Podbean, Stitcher, TuneIn, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts and eventually on Spotify.  The podcast can be found on those listening platforms by searching “Campbell Law School” or “Campbell Law Reporter.” Also, the links will be shared on the law school’s website.

The staff invites listeners to leave reviews and/or comments regarding the podcast on iTunes. 

“We welcome suggestions for future content,” Koehl added. “Our desire is to expand our guest list to legal professionals outside of the law school.  These individuals need not only need be in Raleigh, either.  The neat thing about podcasting is that we can have discussions essentially with anyone across the globe. And we thank you in advance for listening!”
