Raleigh, NC, January 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Campbell University Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law (http://law.campbell.edu) has announced that Amos N. Jones, professor of law teaching in the areas of contracts, constitutional law, and racial relations, has joined the Campbell Law faculty. Jones has taught constitutional law and has more than three years practicing international trade and litigation with a major firm in Washington, D.C. Jones previously was a journalist with McClatchy newspapers and played viola professionally with the Charlotte Philharmonic Orchestra.
A native of Lexington, Ky., Jones earned his undergraduate degree cum laude in political science from Emory University, where he was a National Merit Scholar, a Woodruff Scholar, a Truman Scholar, and a member of USA Today's 2000 All-USA College Academic First Team. He earned a master of science from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and a juris doctorate from Harvard Law School, where he was executive editor of two journals and was awarded a Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarship, on which he studied in Australia.
“Professor Jones has precisely the background our law school needed to provide a more comprehensive curriculum to develop lawyers who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others, and to create a more just society,” said Campbell Law Dean Melissa Essary. “Our faculty comes from a variety of educational and practical backgrounds, and Professor Jones will no doubt draw upon his real-world experiences to offer relevant and valuable insight to our students.”
“It is my privilege to join a community of scholars who make teaching their priority, are readily accessible to students, and devote substantial time to serving students as mentors, coaches and professional role models,” said Jones. “Campbell Law School has had great success in preparing its students for the bar examination, and few schools in the United States or elsewhere can equal Campbell's effectiveness in providing students with practical skills.”
