Campbell Law School officials announce $8 million gift given to the school from a Raleigh attorney.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Campbell Law School officials announced a gift in excess of $8 million given to the school from Raleigh attorney G. Eugene “Gene” Boyce on Monday morning.

The school said that the gift has “cemented the future of student advocates at Campbell Law School.”

Boyce’s gift is a combination of cash and property and it establishes The G. Eugene Boyce Center of Advocacy at the law school’s campus in downtown Raleigh.

The $8 million-plus is the largest gift ever given to Campbell Law and is one of the largest in Campbell University’s history.

“What a tremendous day for Campbell Law School and the university at-large,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “Our advocacy program has a rich tradition of success, and Gene’s gift ensures that this will only continue. His investment in Campbell Law will benefit countless students, and will have a significant positive impact on citizens in the Raleigh community and beyond.”

“Campbell Law has an outstanding reputation in Raleigh, in the North Carolina legal community and beyond,” Boyce said. “We hope our gift will help guide young professionals to rigorously advocate liberty and justice for all people.”
