Leary Davis, who received his law degree from Wake Forest University in 1967, started the law school at Campbell University in 1976. He designed a curriculum that focused not only on the law but how to practice it. The trial-advocacy program was one of the first of its kind and won an award from the American College of Trial Lawyers. Now Davis is leaving Campbell for Elon University near Greensboro, where he will be starting a law school which will open in 2006. There are only five law schools in the state, and when Elon opens, Davis will have started two of them.
