Campbell Law to Launch the Shipman & Wright Sports Law Clinic

Gary Shipman

RALEIGH, NC—When the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced its decision to allow athletes to profit from the commercial use of their names, images or likenesses (NIL), the move opened up a Pandora’s Box of legal implications for student athletes, many of whom cannot afford to hire an agent to represent their interests.

That’s why Campbell Law School is launching its sixth pro bono clinic — the Shipman & Wright Sports Law Clinic — thanks to a generous donation from alumnus Gary Shipman ‘80, a founding partner in the Wilmington-based Shipman & Wright LLP,  Dean J. Rich Leonard announced today.

The clinic will be available for second- and third-year law students just in time for the Fall 2021 semester.
