RALEIGH, North Carolina – Campbell Law welcomed 125 new students with the beginning of its first-year orientation activities on Friday, Aug. 5. The students represent 50 different undergraduate institutions and 42 majors.
“Candidly, this is the most competitive applicant pool in the history of law school admissions,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “We are determined to be slightly smaller in order to not only preserve but increase the credentials of our entering class.”
Campbell Law’s new students began orientation by taking the Professionalism Oath. In addition to customary instructional meetings with faculty and staff, new students will participate in the eight-part Campbell Advantage orientation program, enjoy a social BBQ dinner at Haywood Hall, and take part in the annual Campbell Law Court Crawl — a tour all of the local, state, and federal courts in downtown Raleigh —throughout the remainder of orientation.
