The Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law is an American law school founded in 1976 and located in Buies Creek, North Carolina. The Law School is one of six schools that compose Campbell University and was named for former Campbell president Norman Adrian Wiggins.
The traditional law school courses provide the foundation of the first year of study at Campbell. Criminal Law is studied in the fall and a semester of Constitutional Law in the spring with Civil Procedure, Contracts, Property and Torts spread throughout the year along with courses in Legal Research and Writing. Also required of all first-year students is the Professional Responsibility Lecture Series.
In the second year, all students begin the Campbell Trial and Advocacy Program which spans three semesters of required courses. The Trial and Advocacy Program at Campbell is noted for demanding the most required semester hours of trial and appellate advocacy in the nation.
The Law School also offers an international link as Campbell students have the opportunity to participate in the Handong Cooperative Program and study law at the Handong Global University's International Law School in South Korea.
The Law School is located inside Kivett Hall and Wiggins Hall, which face the campus's main academic circle. Kivett Hall is the oldest building on the Buies Creek campus, dating to 1903, and houses most of the law library's collection as well as classroom space and offices for faculty and student organizations. Wiggins Hall, added to Kivett in the 1990s, is the primary entrance to the Law School and contains the rest of the law library, classrooms, and most of the faculty offices.
Parts of Kivett are currently closed due to structural problems and the future of the building remains uncertain. Additionally, the University is debating the possibility of moving the entire Law School to downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.
Joint Degree Programs
In cooperation with Campbell’s Lundy-Fetterman School of Business, the Law School offers the nation’s only joint JD-MTIM (Law and Masters in Trust and Investment Management) degree as well as a JD-MBA (Law and Masters in Business Administration) program.
