Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law
Campbell University’s law school takes pride in attracting high-caliber students. In 2012, as in many previous years, its graduates had the top bar passage rate in the state.
“When our students move to other states, they have no difficulty in passing the bar there either,” said B. Keith Faulkner, interim dean of the school.
The school, founded in the 1976, is in Raleigh, the state capital and judicial, legislative and executive heart of North Carolina. That makes it an ideal place for students to find externship opportunities in government agencies, law firms, and nonprofit agencies. The school has a cutting-edge facility including a two-story library with a digital and hard copy collection of 190,000 titles. The North Carolina Business Court in Raleigh is also housed at the school.
“Historically, we’re known for our advocacy training,” Faulkner said. “We produce amazing trial lawyers.”
Besides offering an advocacy track, the school has a new intellectual property track as well as business law and general tracks. Five dual-degree programs make it possible to combine a J.D. with a master’s of public administration or business administration, for example. Tuition compares favorably with other private schools in the Carolinas — at $32,280 in 2012.
