Dean Leonard invited to Litigation Counsel of America

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Litigation Counsel of America (LCA) Advisory Board has extended an invitation for membership to Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. The invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society reflects the new face of the American bar and membership is limited to 3,500 fellows.

“I am delighted that some of the most seasoned litigators in this state have sponsored me for this honor,” said Leonard.

The LCA provides its fellows with broad opportunities that grow from a highly selective membership known for its excellence in trial and appellate work, integrity in practice and commitment to diversity throughout every aspect of the profession of law and the administration of justice.

The LCA is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellows are selected based upon effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels and superior ethical reputation. The LCA is aggressively diverse in its composition. Established as a trial and appellate lawyer honorary society reflecting the American bar in the 21st century, the LCA represents the best in law among its membership.
