Campbell Law School’s Student Bar Association and Pro Bono Council teamed up on Feb. 8 to host the law school’s second annual “Campbell Law’s Got Talent” show and silent auction, which was attended by students, faculty and staff and raised $1,200 for student-led pro bono projects.

The winners were:

  • Niayai Lavien ’23 came in first place with her charismatic cheeseboard making talent! She won a $100 Amazon gift card.
  • Taylor Pulliam ’23 and Parker Watson ’23 came in second with their singing duet and keyboard performance of Shallow! They won a $60 Chick Fil A gift card.
  • Anna Crissman ’23 came in third with her signing and guitar playing. She played an original song, Dear Marbury, based on the case Marbury v. Madison! She won a $25 Starbucks gift card.
For the second year in a row the judges were IT staffer James Yacovelli, Professor and Dean Emerita Melissa Essary and the Chief Justice of Campbell Law’s Honor Court  Jennifer Garcia, who did a great job representing the student body and announcing the winners this year, said organizers.
In addition to the talent show, a silent auction was held to raise money for the Pro Bono Council. Some items included cold call passes for certain classes, several lunches with different professors, a Career Center swag bag, a kayaking trip with Professor Bobbi Boyd and a lovely Ghana painting donated by Dean J. Rich Leonard.

“A huge thanks to our judges and everyone who participated in the Talent Show as well as everyone who joined in to watch both in person and online,” said Jillian Camp ’22, managing director of the Pro Bono Council. “And thank you to the organizers and volunteers of the our second Student Bar Association and Pro Bono Talent Show. We had a chance to experience amazing talents from the Campbell Law community, and we raised $1,200 for our Pro Bono Projects!”
