Campbell Law School moving into new home

Come next week, nearly 400 wannabe lawyers will be walking the streets of downtown Raleigh as Campbell University throws open the doors for the new home of its law school.

Next Monday will mark the first day of classes at Campbell’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, which left rural Buies Creek in Harnett County for the glitter and glamour of Raleigh this year.

The new facility, at 225 Hillsborough St., will be within blocks of the Wake County courthouse, large private law firms, state agencies, and courtrooms at the state’s two appellate courts, a federal courthouse and a federal bankruptcy court.

That’s a key component to giving students real-life exposure to the legal profession so they can better adjust to practicing law after graduation, said Melissa Essary, the law school’s dean.

“Our students are not the most important constituency in the building; it’s our student’s future clients,” Essary said. Giving students exposure to how the world works, and not just hypothetical situations, helps those future clients, Essary said.
