Campbell Law welcomes 160 first-year students for orientation

RALEIGH – Campbell Law welcomed 160 new students with the close of its first-year orientation activities on Friday, Aug. 11. The students represent 64 different undergraduate institutions and 44 majors.

One hundred fifty of the new first-year students are enrolled in the traditional three year program, while 10 are Campbell FLEX students.  Two students, one traditional and one Campbell FLEX, are enrolled as a part of the Advanced J.D. Program for Non-U.S. Lawyers.

“With the smallest applicant pool since the 1970s, we are elated to have seated such a robust and highly-credentialed class,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard.

The new first-year class is the fifth to enroll at Campbell Law during Leonard’s tenure as dean.

Campbell Law’s new students finished orientation by taking the Professionalism Oath. In addition to customary instructional meetings with faculty and staff, new students participated in the eight-part Campbell Advantage orientation program, enjoyed a social BBQ dinner at Haywood Hall, and took part in the annual Campbell Law Court Crawl — a tour of all of the local, state, and federal courts in downtown Raleigh — throughout the remainder of orientation.
