NCBA’s Bohm named director of development at Campbell Law

RALEIGH, N.C. – Campbell Law School Dean J. Rich Leonard has announced that David Bohm will join the law school as director of development effective May 10. Bohm has served as the assistant executive director of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) since 2008.

“I am delighted for David to join us in this capacity,” said Leonard. “Anyone that has been involved with the NCBA knows what an exceptional individual he is. His relationships within North Carolina’s legal community and beyond will allow us to expand our development efforts moving forward, ultimately creating more meaningful opportunities by which our students will learn, succeed, and benefit.”

At the NCBA, Bohm assisted with the administration of a budget and endowment of $10 million each, coordinated development and strategic planning, and helped oversee the day-to-day administration of the state’s largest voluntary legal membership organization.

“It is exhilarating to become a part of the Campbell Law community,” said Bohm. “I am excited to join an organization and a fantastic team of people who are implementing a unique and strategic vision, and I look forward to helping propel an already great institution to even greater heights.”

Prior to the NCBA, Bohm practiced law as an associate at Johnston, Allison & Hord in Charlotte (2003-08) and Sumrell, Sugg, Carmichael, Hicks & Hart in New Bern (1999-2003).

Licensed to practice in both North Carolina and Kansas, Bohm has been active in the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) and various nonprofit boards, including the Cary YMCA, Dorcas Ministries, and Wheels 4 Hope. Twice honored by the NABE, Bohm received the organization’s President’s Award in 2011 and the Peer Excellence Award in 2014.

A native of Osborne, Kan., Bohm earned his bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, from Washburn University in 1995, and his juris doctor from Washburn University School of Law in 1998. He also completed a master of law (LL.M.) in health law from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2000.

Bohm and his wife, Summer, reside in Apex with their two children.

Since its founding in 1976, Campbell Law School has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. The school has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) as having the nation’s top Professionalism Program and by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,800 alumni, including more than 3,000 who reside and work in North Carolina.
