Professor Elizabeth Campbell, '11, is a clinical assistant professor of law in the Human Trafficking Clinic. She has dedicated her legal career to serving individuals who have experienced abuse and exploitation. Her research and teaching interests focus on human trafficking, immigration, domestic violence, and criminal law. She spearheaded a pilot project in partnership with Washtenaw County aimed at better responding to victims of human trafficking who are arrested and/or charged with prostitution and related offenses. Under Professor Campbell's leadership, the Human Trafficking Clinic has received more than $1 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Justice in order to better understand and provide services to individuals who have experienced human trafficking and domestic violence or sexual assault. She regularly trains attorneys, law enforcement, medical professionals, and social services providers on assessing and identifying victims of human trafficking, as well as best practices in providing comprehensive legal services to victims. Professor Campbell received her BA, with distinction, from the University of Michigan and earned her JD, cum laude, from Michigan Law. During law school, she was a Michigan refugee and asylum law fellow with the Refugee Status Appeals Authority in New Zealand and a project coordinator for the Family Law Project, a division of Legal Services of South Central Michigan. Prior to law school, she worked as an advocate at a local center providing services to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking.​
