From the Creek to the Capital:
The History of Campbell Law School
From the time Dr. Norman Adrian Wiggins assumed the presidency of Campbell College in 1968, he was asked when there would be a law school at Campbell College. A 1974 report prepared for the University of North Carolina Board of Governors from the Research Triangle Institute concluded that there was no need for another law school in the state, appearing to dismiss the idea of opening any additional law schools, despite the fact that North Carolina had the lowest number of lawyers per person in the nation. Still, Dr. Wiggins saw a need for a new law school, specifically citing the need for lawyers in the state's rural, eastern counties. "Campbell plans to turn out family practitioners of law."
