RALEIGH — Campbell Law is currently celebrating the 40th anniversary of its first graduating class, and the 10th anniversary of the school’s trailblazing move to North Carolina’s capital city. The law school is commemorating these milestones with special events and programming throughout 2019, including a 10/40 Gala Celebration for faculty, staff, students, alumni and community friends at Raleigh’s new Union Station at 7 p.m. on March 22.
The yearlong celebration theme, “10/40: From the Capital to the Creek,” pays homage to the school’s rich heritage, as well as its strong faculty and alumni legacies. Lauded as a leading institution of legal education in the South, Campbell Law is a unique community of diverse individuals brought together by a singular purpose — to use the practice of law in order to create a more just and merciful society.
“2019 commemorates four remarkable decades of graduating ‘next-gen’ leaders,” Dean J. Rich Leonard says. “We invite alumni and the community to join us in celebrating this historic milestone, and we look forward to providing students with a world-class legal education for decades to come.”
Tickets for the 10/40 Gala, which will feature music by DJ Bunn, food by Posh Nosh Catering, unique N.C. beverages, a photo booth, a chance to sit on the Dean’s now famous #Cobi Conference Bike, one-of-a-kind door prizes for the first 200 guests, and more, are limited and selling quickly.

Campbell Law was founded by Campbell University’s visionary third president, Norman Adrian Wiggins, in 1976 with a charter class of 97 students. In September 2009, Campbell Law relocated from the Campbell University main campus in Buies Creek, N.C. to its current downtown Raleigh location at 225 Hillsborough St. to better capitalize on educational and public service opportunities. Prior to the move, Raleigh had been the largest state capital in the U.S. without a law school.
