Campbell Law tuition in 2011 was $33,910. For the 2019-20 school year it is $42,600.

Campbell's NC bar passage rate in 2011 was 91.94%. In 2018 (most recent) that number is 67.89% (Campbell's NC bar passage has not cracked 90% since 2012)

Campbell's employment rate for graduate in Full-time long term jobs as attorneys (Bar passage required) for the class of 2011 was 71%. For the class of 2018 the rate is 50%.

That means in less than 10 years tuition has gone up by over 25% while bar passage and employment outcomes have dropped precipitously.

This is the data...these are the outcomes...this is #Campbell

I had a friend in law school who said God wanted her to be a lawyer. She failed yhe bar twice before deciding God didn't want her to be a lawyer.

Not to go evangelical here, but that was a part of my story. I knew which law school I’d be going because I felt God speak to my heart when I was working on filling out applications. I presumed it meant I’d become an attorney.

I got an internship during my time in school. Again, I felt God speak to my heart...telling me to turn down the mileage comp I was offered for the distance I traveled for the interview. I got the internship. It was educational. My boss was a good, conscientious man (Episcopalian, I believe), but I hated most every minute of the internship.

After choosing to not practice law during my last semester...God’s made a way for me to get by, and now I work for an admin law judge for decent pay and state benefits...and now am on track to resolving my student loans.

For a while, I questioned why I went to law school if I wasn’t going to be a lawyer. The truth is that I met many good people along the way, and the pastor I was under during the 3 to 4 years I was in law school really fueled my spiritual growth in ways that likely wouldn’t have happened back home.

Sometimes it’s about the journey and not the destination.

Well that would explain why Campbell charges 130k for the journey.

All fine but why single out this scam? There are ~100 other secular and religious schools running this scam.

I bet the religious ties and alumni connections are stronger than somewhere like Florida Coastal or American U.

bias alert...this is my scam...

When schools like FC, or more appropriately Charlotte put out terrible numbers they are held to account. If not through the legal system then at least through bad publicity. Because Campbell has the network of alumni and parent University, they are better able to avoid accountability.

In NC there are two schools that are shady in their practices. Elon and Campbell. The only other unranked school in the state is NCCU (HBC) and they recently posted a 75% bar passage rate...oh and it is dirt cheap to attend. Elon can at least claim that they are a new entrant into the market...Campbell has been pulling this crap since before they made the move to Raleigh NC.

Campbell plays the reputation card HARD!!!! I have met a lot of 1L 2L sycophants who start to see the light once they realize the job prospects are simply not there during their 3L year. This school promotes a self aggrandizing culture.

On the bar passage slump, note between 2010 and 2017 their 25th percentile LSAT student became their 75th percentile.
