Campbell Law students receive scholarships from WCBA, CCLA

Four Campbell Law School students are among the recipients of the 2020 Wake County Bar Association (WCBA) scholarships and the 2020 Capitol City Lawyers Association (CCLA) scholarships.

Erin Barker ‘21 and Jennifer Garcia ‘22 are among three students from Raleigh selected to receive the prestigious $4,000 WCBA scholarship, which is awarded to law students or persons about to enter law school who have ties to Wake County. The scholarship is funded through donations, the annual golf tournament and late fees from district bar dues. The scholarship fund was founded in memory of Edwin S. Preston Jr., former Wake County Chief Resident Superior Court Judge.

Lucy Campbell ‘22 and Cristiano L. Méndez ‘21 were both selected to receive the Capital City Lawyers Association Scholarship.

The CCLA scholarships are awarded to two deserving law students who demonstrate a commitment to practicing in the Triangle and using their legal training and skills to benefit low-income and/or traditionally underserved communities. The CCLA’s mission is to improve the quality of life in the community through education, service and scholarship.
