A CALL TO FACULTY ... Chronicle of Scholarly Activity 2011

CU Law professor earns Iredell Award RALEIGH – Campbell Law School Phi Alpha Delta Fraternity honored and presented longtime professor Thomas P. Anderson with the 2012 Justice James Iredell Award at a gala ceremony on Wednesday at the Cardinal Club. Since 1980, the Iredell Award has been annually presented to an individual who has made significant contributions to both the legal profession and Campbell Law School. Inspired by the life and writings of Justice Iredell, the award honors the recipient’s accomplishments, effort and tenacity. “If it wasn’t for the students, we would

not be here,” said Anderson. “Campbell Law School has created a ripple effect in the practice of law in North Carolina, and I appreciate you for honoring me for my part in the helping to create that ripple effect in this state.” Professor Anderson graduated from the University of Alabama and earned his juris doctor cum laude at Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. He has taught trial advocacy and civil procedure to scores of practicing attorneys in North Carolina. FULL STORY

Don’t mess with a Camel ...

It seems Campbell’s Camels - at least the athletic ones - aren’t getting the respect they deserve. Not only was Eric Griffin’s dunk inexplicably left out of ESPN2’s “Dunk of the Year” show (even though Griffin’s dunk ranked No. 5), an Orange County (Calif.) sports columnist poked fun at Campbell for having what he thought was a ridiculous mascot.
