Raleigh, NC, September 21, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Campbell Law School has announced that Anitra Brown, a 2014 Campbell Law graduate, has been selected as a recipient of the North Carolina State Bar’s Annual Student Pro Bono Service Award. Brown will be honored for her pro bono work performed as a third-year student during the 2013-14 academic year at the North Carolina State Bar’s 50-Year Lawyers’ Luncheon on Thursday, Oct. 23 at the Raleigh Marriott City Center Hotel.
As the director of Campbell Law’s Pro Bono Council last year, Brown led the council in adding four new pro bono projects to its portfolio, including The Reentry Project, Child Permanency Appeals Project, Navigator Healthcare Project and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Project. At the same time, she continued to operate the Domestic Violence Advocacy Project. Brown was instrumental in assisting the Campbell Law administration with the creation of new policies and procedures for the development and implementation of the new pro bono projects. She passed the N.C. Bar Exam on her first attempt in July.
The North Carolina State Bar instituted this annual award many years ago in an effort to recognize law school students’ public service efforts.
“I’m humbled to be recognized by my profession for pro bono service,” said Brown. “As far as I'm concerned, however, the honor really goes to my team of dedicated students who stood behind the new vision, our director of student life and pro bono opportunities, the faculty members who made pro bono a priority, and Dean Rich Leonard, who made increasing pro bono opportunities one of his first goals as our new leader.”
“Anitra Brown is certainly a most deserving recipient of this honor,” said Campbell Law Director of Student Life & Pro Bono Opportunities Beth Froehling. “Her genuine commitment to pro bono and public service was evident throughout her time at Campbell Law, and I have no doubt that it will continue to remain a priority for her throughout her professional career.”
