A graduate of Villanova University and Temple Law School, Campbell has represented low-income Pennsylvanians for his entire career, starting as a VISTA volunteer. He was a managing attorney of the Senior Citizen Unit of the Delaware County Legal Assistance Association in the 1980s, and later represented poor Pennsylvanians seeking quality health care at PHLP. Campbell's other teaching experience includes co-teaching a seminar in publicly financed health care law and an interdisciplinary seminar on emerging Issues in publicly financed managed health care at Penn Law School. The interdisciplinary course brought together students at Penn's schools of Law, Medicine, Graduate Nursing and Graduate Social Work.
