Jean M. Cary
Jean Cary is a leading teacher and scholar in the field of depositions. She has written two law review articles on "Rambo Depositions," and just finished twenty years as the Director of the Southeast Regional Deposition Program for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy. She continues to teach advocacy courses in Effective Deposition-Taking, Trial Skills, Negotiation, Fact Investigation, and Motions across the country with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, (NITA).
Professor Cary applies her deposition-taking and trial skills when she teaches her courses in Pretrial Litigation and Trial Advocacy. She also teaches Family Law and a new course in Interviewing and Counseling based on her recent book, A Practical Approach to Client Interviewing, Counseling, and Decision-Making.
In addition to her teaching responsibilities at Campbell, for the last five years Professor Cary has served as the academic adviser to the Local Rules Civil Subcommittee for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
In 2001 Professor Cary was honored with the prestigious Honorable Prentice Marshall Faculty Award from the National Institute for Trial Advocacy for generously sharing her "talents with a multitude of participants and faculty in public programs, law firms, and pro bono activities."
In 1999 and again in 2000, Professor Cary was a visiting associate professor of law at Duke University where she taught Family Law. Before coming to Campbell, Professor Cary worked as the first civil law clinic instructor at the University of North Carolina School of Law and she practiced law with legal services offices in Charlotte, Raleigh and Hillsborough where she represented clients who could not afford to hire an attorney.
