RALEIGH, N.C. - Chief Justice Sarah Parker of the Supreme Court of North Carolina spoke with Campbell Law students as a part of the institution’s “Lunch with the Bench” series on Tuesday, Aug. 26. Each month a distinguished, visiting member of the judiciary joins Campbell Law students for an engaging dialogue on their career and the legal profession.

Rich Leonard. “We are humbled that she has made time to engage with our students while preparing to leave office, and thankful for all that she has done for both North Carolina and Campbell Law.”
Chief Justice Parker has served in her current role since Feb. 2006.
