Campbell Law School’s mentorship program has won the 2016 E. Smythe Gambrell Professionalism Award from the American Bar Association, according to a press release from the school.
The award comes with a cash prize of $3,500 and will be presented at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco on Aug. 6.
Campbell Law Connections is a joint project of Campbell and the Wake County Bar Association. Students in the program develop professional relationships and learn under the tutelage of a mentor about the responsibilities and ethics demanded by the practice of law.
“This award recognizes the immense amount of work and resources we have dedicated to this program that gives our third-year students an opportunity unique among law schools,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard in the release.
