RALEIGH, N.C. – Campbell Law Professor Margaret Currin has been elected to the Wake County Bar Association (WCBA) and Tenth Judicial District Bar Board of Directors. Currin, a 1979 charter class graduate of Campbell Law, is one of five alums elected to WCBA/Tenth Judicial District positions.

She has also represented political committees before the Federal Election Commission. This past October she was reappointed by the North Carolina Senate to a two-year term on the North Carolina Rules Review Commission.

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.
