Campbell law school offers naming-rights

Staff WriterFebruary 20, 2009 

— Campbell University's law school is offering donors a chance to get their names on parts -- or all -- of its new site in downtown Raleigh.

The naming-rights would total more than $16 million, ranging from $10 million for the whole building to $10,000 for a library study room.

Campbell officials released the list Wednesday just before leading a tour of the 107,000-square-foot Hillsborough Place building at Hillsborough and Dawson streets.

Campbell is in the middle of a $13 million renovation of the building, which is scheduled to open in September.

Campbell announced in 2007 that it was moving its Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law from the small Harnett County town of Buies Creek to downtown Raleigh.

The new location will provide the 350-student law school with 40 percent more space than it has in Buies Creek.

It will include a 200-seat auditorium, three courtrooms and a 25,000-square-foot library spread over two floors.

Campbell purchased the Hillsborough Place building for $17.5 million from Variety Realty and its owner Art Pope, a big supporter of Campbell.
