institution. You have also given of your time with the first ever 100%
class participation in pro bono service projects.”

Farewell to Carolina Law Legend
After 16 years of dedicated service to UNC School of Law, Louise Harris has accepted a new position. During her time at Carolina Law, Louise made
significant and long-lasting impact through her work with alumni and friends of
the law school. From building a robust alumni relations program in partnership
with the UNC Law Alumni Association, to laying the groundwork for the $75
million Campaign for Carolina, her footprint at the law school is significant.
Louise will remain in our legal community, and continue to
work on behalf of the State of North Carolina. She begins her new position at
the North Carolina Bar Foundation in June and will be at the North Carolina Bar
Association Annual Meeting June 21-24 at the Wilmington Convention Center.
