RALEIGH — Campbell Law School’s own Raven Byrne ‘06 is featured among Raleigh Magazine’s “40s & Fearless” announced in the March 2022 edition.  

Byrne has served as the director of Student Life and Pro Bono Opportunities since September 2021. In her current role, she oversees more than 20 institutional student groups as well as the ever-growing pro bono project portfolio.  

Raleigh Magazine’s “40s & Fearless” were chosen based on the following criteria: “fearless 40-somethings (who) risked it all and made brave and bold choices.” It shines a spotlight on individuals who chose to embark on a new journey later in life, and tells the stories of their successes. 

Byrne originally closed her successful family law practice and walked away from being a litigation attorney to “be a more present wife and mother” she told Raleigh Magazine. When she decided to return to the workforce, she knew she wanted to utilize her wide range of skills in a different way. She chose entering the world of higher education administration at Campbell Law School.  

Active in professional and civic communities, Byrne has served on the board of directors of Gigi’s Playhouse in Raleigh. “I am passionate about the mission of Gigi’s Playhouse, which is to change the way the world views Down syndrome and to send a global message of acceptance for all.”

She has also volunteered with Hands of Compassion International in Ecuador and Cary, served as a pro bono attorney for Project Together in Wake County and Guardian Ad Litem and has performed short-term mission work with a focus on child services in Ecuador and the Dominican Republic. Byrne is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association and the Johnston/Wake county bar associations.
