Spencer earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Campbell Law School. During law school, he was the symposium editor of the Campbell Law Review and a student representative for the North Carolina Bar Association. Spencer was published in the Campbell Law Review as a student for his note on the intersection of administrative law and an employer’s right to their tips, which was subsequently cited with approval in a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. He also completed externships with the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the Raleigh City Attorney’s Office, as well as serving as a research assistant for three different law school professors.
